We stayed here for a very quick trip to Boston. We chose the hotel as we are Gold Elite club members and they happened to have a room available using our points! The room it self was very nice - plenty of room, very comfy beds, nice bathroom, a room fridge, good desk area, nice seating area. I would give... More

We stayed one night - to catch a flight the next morning. Pro's - close to airport. (If you disregard all the road work going on - which has nothing to do with the hotel.) Room was clean. Staff was friendly. Con's - LIMITED parking at the hotel. They have an abandoned parking lot across a busy strip for additional... More

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend. The rooms are exceptionally clean, tastefully and decorated. Be aware, parking is limited! There are about 40 spaces for 7 floors of rooms and then you have to find parking off-site. It is central to the T to get around Boston. It is close to a very diverse ethnic neighborhood for... More

Dear Donna S - We are so very happy that you enjoyed your time with us. We will agree that during the summer months, parking is tighter than during the rest of the year and thankfully, we have two lots to house all of our guest vehicles. But as you also pointed out, you don't need a car to visit... More

For our first trip to Boston I wanted a location near the subway for easy sightseeing but out of the city center to avoid the higher prices. I was also attracted to the free parking which is hard to find in larger cities. At first glance the neighborhood looks a little rough but it's just a normal blue collar area.... More

Dear JAC1268 - We could not agree more with your comments about our hotel. Our neighborhood is exactly as you described it - a safe, residential neighborhood on a busy street. We did renovate recently and while our building is older, our rooms are not and our housekeepers make sure they look their best. We appreciate you choosing to stay... More

Took the wife to Boston for her birthday and wanted to try and save a few bucks. Free parking and breakfast. Only a short walk to Green Line. Spent the day in the city and had a great time. The room was clean and had no issues. Breakfast was ok and satisfactory for being included with the room. We decided... More

I went to Boston with my friends for a road trip. We were surprised by how the personnal was so friendly and professional. The rooms were really cleaned and everything was as we excepted. The hotel was near the T (subway) so we could easly go downtown!!! I suggest this hotel!! :-)

Hotels in and around Boston and Cambridge can be shockingly expensive. I went with this one largely based on price since we were saying six nights, the overall positive reviews, and location in relation to the three universities we were visiting (Northeastern, Boston U, and MIT -- each less than 15 minutes away even during rush hour). It turned out... More

We visited our son in Boston for the weekend and stayed the at Holiday Inn Express in Cambridge. We booked in advance with non-cancelable rooms to save a few dollars.

We're loyal HIE customers and have stayed at well over a dozen HIE properties around the US over the last 15 years or so, but this particular property ranked somewhere between forgettable and mediocre on our personal HQM -- hotel quality meter. On the "pro" side, the staff was earnest and actually quite helpful in calling taxis for us. Housekeeping,... More
