First let me start off by saying that the hotel itself is absolutely delightful. The amenities and the value for the money are excellent. However, I am absolutely horrified I am at the way I was treated by the staff at Hotel Tria. As a Loyal Rewards Customer who has spent at over a thousand dollars at this hotel from... More

My husband and I were very pleased with this hotel. Comfortable bed, microwave and refrigerator - great value. Also it wasn't advertised that there is a bar and lite bites available which is important. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for the Christmas holiday as our son lives within walking distance and it is close to the T. We can get to this hotel from the airport via public transportation for free. We had a wonderful stay. The staff is very nice.

I work for a company based in Cambridge, so I come in two or three times a year. Used to stay at the Homewood Suites in Arlington, but this Best Western is a much better value. Very professional front desk staff, very comfortable beds, very clean, excellent location for Cambridge and Arlington. Love the free shuttle service to Cambridge offices... More

Excellent hotel with good transport links to experience the whole of Boston. Good location of hotel, good facilities, overall excellent. Boston is a lovely place to visit. The tube from Alewife is literally 5 minute walk away from the hotel although there is a free shuttle also (even my 7 year old daughter didn't moan about walking to the station).

I've stayed here a few times since my company's headquarters is across the street. The rooms are generally clean and comfortable. Breakfast is fine - definitely not wonderful. The location isn't great given the traffic around and the fact that it's not very walkable to anything of interest. Some of the rooms are smoking, which makes most of the hotel... More

Good hotel with great Cambridge, MA location (close to the T). Breakfast was adequate, staff was courteous and competent. Reasonably good value, considering this hotel is located in the greater Boston area.

On the plus side: the room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was fine, the bar was quite nice. And the location was ok - 7 or 8 minutes to the alewife T station. On the downside, the area around the hotel isn't great - unless you like visiting a third rate shopping mall.

Good location and while not a lot of nearby competition, prices are reasonable. Rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast with good food with the usual selections available. Be ready for different rates at different times, particularly for events at the many nearby colleges.

This hotel is truly value for money. This is because its location is far from historical centre, Harvard etc thus it is much cheaper than those within those places from interest. But don't let that stop you from staying here. Here they provide free shuttle to Harvard as well as to the nearest train station Alewife. (If you walk with... More
