This hotel is not your average Best Western...the rooms are extremely clean and spacious. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the complimentary breakfast had everything you could want. I have stayed at a lot of Best Westerns and this is by far the nicest one. And it is only about a 5 minute walk to the Alewife T-Stop.

Totally enjoyed my experience at this hotel. Convenient to the Red Line transit system. Free shuttle to the Red Line station. Free breakfast was good with a wide selection. Will stay here again. Why is there a 200 character minimum for review?

Not a single complaint about this hotel: everything was perfect from check-in to check-out. When he found out that we were staying there for our wedding, the manager immediately moved us away from a block of rooms filled with high school kids to a quieter room that had been recently renovated. The room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Everyone on... More

Tria is well priced for Cambridge, and the location is quite good; we've stayed here 3 times. On this stay, we made several requests about type-of-room and location so ended up in one of the "non-renovated" rooms. In the future, I will probably choose a renovated one, if possible. The non-renovated room was as spruced up as possible without a... More

My family had visitors from out of the States, and we decided last minute to go on a trip to Boston. Boston hotels were outrageously expensive so I looked in Cambridge and found Tria. The price was great and the proximity to Boston made it convenient so we went with it. I booked with American Express (a third party) on... More

I stay at the Tria weekly (and have done so for many years) for business purposes. Staff is always friendly and service oriented. For the area, it is a well priced hotel and convenient enough to T and Harvard Square area.

The hotel is immaculate. Maybe not so modern. Outdoor plantings were beautiful. Some front desk folks were incredibly friendly and helpful. Some were the polar opposite. On this particular trip I ended up needing a little extra assistance because of an unexpected illness. They did not provide the help I requested. The free shuttle is great. The primary driver is...

This was an unexpected last minute business trip during a week when most hotels were completely booked in Boston area. I stumbled across Best Western Tria day of and was able to plead with the desk attendant to please hold the room for ten minutes for me to get approval from my supervisor to book which he graciously did. It... More

From the time we signed in to signing out our every need was meet. The Front desk went out of their way to make sure our visit and the tours we went on where something to remember and come back for more. A proper room for breakfast and always someone there to make sure the food was replenished. A short... More
