it was a family trip to celebrate my daughter's Master degree graduation and the location of the hotel was very convenient and very good services. Very friendly and helpful staff. The only thing I would of like was shuttle service to the airport, everything else was great.

Nice Hotel in the heart of Cambridge. Near shopping, train and Harvard Square. They provide a shuttle service for shopping and local attractions. Train into downtown Boston is in walking distance. Friendly staff. Whole Foods and trader Joes in walking distance to but groceries, if staying long term.

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past 5 years and have probably spent thousands of dollars there. The white management staff are very rude and insulting especially Shannon and Matt. I stayed there before Christmas and had bought two quails for my 7 year old daughter one of which accidently got loose in the lobby. The... More

This was a nice hotel for the price and unlike some other Best Westerns there is a bar in the lobby. Also not too far of a drive from nice areas. Grocery stores are very close by as well as other shopping and a few restaurants.

I have stayed at Hotel Tria several times before while visiting Boston. The location is perfect as it's easy to get to and can access the T so you don't have to drive and try to find parking around Boston. The staff are very friendly. This past trip we interacted with Julia and Jason at the front desk and they... More

Staying here with my husband and 2 teenage sons over the holidays. Room is not especially modern, but reasonably well designed for storage in room and bathroom. Friendly staff, including check-in (fresh chocolate chip cookies--always a sucker for that) and a little bar with generous pours and always a few folks sitting and sipping in the evenings. Nice--and a good... More

This hotel is not much to look at from the outside, but, the inside is much better. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean, and offered a small refrigerator and a comfortable chair. The beds were comfortable, though not fabulous. The breakfast was typical for a Best Western, waffles, eggs, fruit, etc. And... More
