My family and I needed a hotel to stay for a couple days to scope out Boston, as we are moving to the area in a few weeks. We got a good price compared to other hotels in the area ($269 plus taxes etc.). The hotel was clean, new, and had acceptable amenities. The staff were superb, and in particular... More

I am on my way back home after a week at the Royal Sonesta. Very convenient, especially if working nearby. I would definitely recommend it for business, maybe a bit expensive if travelling for pleasure... I particularly liked the express breakfast service which was closer to my needs.

Love this hotel! My daughter & I just arrived home after touring colleges in Boston area. This was the perfect location & the hotel is top-notch. Clean, comfy, great view, nice cafe downstairs and manager Anka was great. I even managed to fit in a 5 mile run around the Charles River.

Very clean and comfortable, updated, modern rooms. Excellent location if you would like to stay near the Museum of Science or TD Garden. Both are less than 1 mile from the Hotel. We walked many places in Boston and took the "T" to the farther points. Our car didn't move all weekend! Friendly and caring staff; We stayed for the... More

My stay way was fabulous , except for Manager Anka who seemed to have somewhat of an attitude. Your night agent Danella seem to actually care about my trip and stay. I was greeted with a smile from agent that made me feel welcome, however, Anka seem not to be so friendly. Overall I love this hotel. I will def.... More

The check-in woman was great. My daughter and I decided on a last minute stay in the city and found a great rate at the RS in Cambridge. The woman gave us a fantastic room with a view of the city and a balcony! We love this hotel. Will definitely return.

A group of girl friends and i stayed here for a birthday weekend. The location of the hotel was was not ideal for the type of trip we had planned. Everywhere we went we needed to drive or cab it but it was a long ride at all. The hotel itself was very clean and modern. The rooms were pretty... More

First stay at any Sonesta property, first stay in the Boston/Cambridge area. Very impressed. Attentive staff, very well appointed, super clean rooms. This particular location was excellent, given it's proximity to the mall across the street and a quick cab ride from Logan AP.

My family and I stayed here, for 2 nights. We had a wonderful welcome with hot cookies and cider! We were all pleasantly surprised to find how modern the decor is, how clean and yet a great value! It was easy walking to the science museum! Love the cafe! Great food! Would certainly stay there again
