When my husband and I decided to go to Beantown for our 18th anniversary, we decided to book the BW Hotel Tria. We had stayed at this hotel last year and loved it's location to the Alewife T stop, the organic sushi restaurant in the plaza across the street, and the fact that it has a Starbucks inside the hotel....

Convenient location (although Googlemaps did not find it easily and we went the wrong way briefly on Routes 2 and 3 trying to find the hotel). The hotel was nice, clean and the front desk was very helpful. However, the walls are very thin. We stayed in room 129, and we could hear the next door television until at least... More

We stayed here two separate nights as book ends to a vacation. The accommodations were nice enough and clean. The staff was polite and friendly. The second time the room had a decent enough view but the first time we overlooked a rooftop generator. In addition, the main lamp did not work in the first room. But biggest complaint -... More

Very reasonable price. I would love to go back here. It is very quiet and it is good to relax especially if you are coming from a long trip. Excellent service for a value hotel. Though not so near to tourist attraction.

This is our second stay at this hotel. The first time was to attend a graduation ceremony. This time, there were lots of parents moving their kids into the universities in Cambridge. Not close to any tourist attractions. On busy street with no view, but free parking and 10-15 minute walk to Alewife station (with a 5 and 7 year-old... More

We didn't want to drive in the centre of Boston, so this hotel was a good alternative for us. We were able to walk down to the station and get a train into the city centre. The fare was far more reasonable than British trains! The hotel itself was clean and spacious, if a little dingy. The other room that... More

Stayed here one night when I needed to be near Somerville. Room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom only had the very basics but everything worked well. The desk clerk when I checked in was rude and surly but everyone else I encountered was nice and helpful. Walls seemed a little thin - could hear voices speaking in the next... More

The hotel has a great location, clean facility, shuttle to certain attractions and friendly, helpful staff. The room was very quiet dispite the busy street. It also offered a shuttle to various local attractions at no cost which we really appreciated. All in all the hotel and staff were great. I will stay here again for future trips to Boston.

We were impressed with the size of the room and how comfortable and clean it was - more than enough towels and amenities were provided. The breakfast was first class. We stayed 2 nights and took the subway system in Boston to travel back and forth - so the location of the hotel was perfect.
