I first stayed here in August and everything took FOREVER! Came back in early November, surpsingly my room service breakfast took only 15 minutes! Check-in was a breeze. Yes, the rooms are a bit dated, the one way to ensure a riverview is to book a riverview room. But in August, I was on the 11th floor (awesome views), earlier... More

This hotel has a lovely view of the river, if you are fortunate enough to get one. The decor is attractive and beginning to show its age. Overall, the hotel would be fine if not for all the extra charges. We were charged for internet use and found our cell phone GS seemed to be blocked once in the hotel,... More

The view of the Charles is nice, from the elevators. We were put in a room facing the parking lot and street. VERY disappointed as I took my mother here for her birthday. You definitely have to cab it everywhere (around $12 each). Then on top of it, they charged us $80 to park our car and we did not... More

The location of this hotel was very scenic and convenient. Located along the Charles River you will get a terrific view if you're room faces out toward the river. (Mine did not instead I looked at a rooftop and a truck parking lot). When I called in advance of my arrival with a special request the young lady I spoke... More

Just returned from overnight business trip, booked through Price line at $150, a good deal for the area. Still, hotel claims 4 star status and did not measure up. The spacious room overlooked Charles River but windows badly needed cleaning. In room coffee pot did not work, no washcloths and other minor quibbles. Biggest complaint was that king mattress was...

This was a very nice hotel in a great location for college visits. We were in town to see Boston University and Boston College and the location was perfect. We walked to BU from the hotel across the BU bridge and caught the public transportation line for the rest of our exploring. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful.... More

We had been impressed by the front desk staff on prior visits. This was the case once again, only this time the front desk receptionist was exceptional. We had reserved a room w a large balcony overlooking the Charles to squeeze in an "evening for us" during my husband's hectic multi-week business trip. Envisioning a romantic evening (me) w wine...

The Hyatt Regency, Cambridge, MA is a great value for either business or leisure travel. Rooms are set up comfortably with wi fi in room. Overlooking the Charles River, views are great (make sure to ask for a room on that side). Literally 2 miles from Harvard Square and Newbury Street...both great for restaurants and shopping. Great area for a... More

We spent four nights here whilst visiting our son at Harvard. The hotel is very good, especially the rooms facing the river (great to watch the rowers) and the beds, which are really comfortable. Had lunch in the restaurant and this too was very nice and a reasonable price. Service throughout the hotel was excellent. The downside was the location... More
