We only stayed here for one night when we went to a concert in Boston. After an initial mix-up at the front desk about our reservations (no fault of the hotel staff...it was a problem with the name on the credit card as the room was booked by someone else for us), we got into our room. I wouldn't say... More

Dear CamperSammyb25 - We certainly understand that you may have paid a higher price on the night of your concert and given our location to the TD Garden and other venues, this is typical of us and other hotels to sell rooms at higher rates.

The rooms were very clean, large and well appointed. We were very pleased with our visit. The staff was friendly and helpful. They always had snacks available in the lobby eg, apples and flavoured water on tap. Very nice touch. The location was perfect. Close to everything that we were interested in. Would stay here again in a heart beat.

We used this hotel to utilize HI express suites extra area. There was a pull out bed but both rooms were tight. I guess this is true of all the Boston area hotels. Parking was free and the staff was nice but the cramped quarters were a surprise. They did have free wifi and an ok buffet breakfast.

Dear KevinKell - We thank you for your kind words about your stay with us earlier this year. As it turns out, our guest rooms are some of the largest in the area and we agree that many hotels in the Greater Boston area are smaller due to the size of the city. We look forward to having you as... More

Chose the hotel due to location. Worked out well; close to were we wanted to be, fairly close to downtown and airport, close to bus and metro stops. Close to some shopping and local areas. Checked in for 5 days on Tuesday night. Wifi didn't work on Thursday; a call to the front desk informed us that the wifi code... More

Dear djlund999 - We are sorry that you experienced slower service from our elevators during your stay. You are correct as one of our elevators went down for maintenance right before Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, parts could not be obtained to fix the issue until after the holiday itself and subsequently, there was a delay. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience... More

This is the best value for visiting the Boston/Cambridge area. This was a perfect location for a recent family reunion. Hotel is on Rte 28 which connects to the major expressways and the City of Boston. It is also blocks from the dynamic Kendall Square area of East Cambridge. Very helpful staff, especially Meeting/Sales director Matthew Tivnan!

This hotel would get an excellent rating from me if it were not for two things. First breakfast is awful. Only paper plates, fork, knives and glasses. The orange juice is watered down alot. In my opinion they should rather skip breakfast than offer what they had. The other is a much smaller issue. We asked the reception staff with... More

Dear Geir G - Thank you for sharing your comments about your stay with us. We would agree that as a limited service hotel, having to use plastic, recyclable items in our breakfast area, is not the prettiest presentation. But most of our items can be recycled for future use and that is important to us. We thank you for... More

I was on 7th floor away from street. It was quiet and comfortable. Room clean and nice. Breakfast is standard holiday inn express fare which I don't really care for. I end up just eating the oatmeal. Staff was friendly and helpful. They arranged a few taxi rides for me.
