This was our first visit to Boston, and loved the location of this hotel. It is just three blocks from the subway T. Room was very clean, bed comfortable & morning breakfast was hot with a clean eating area. Front desk staff very helpful and answered all our questions when it came to directions and things to do.

I Visited this HIE because we needed a hotel in the Boston area at an affordable price. The hotel is 2 blocks away from Lechmere T station, so you can reach the Boston downtown and attractions relatively easy. It is worth noting that the zone of the Hotel it´s not the best in Cambridge, it is in a Street full... More

Dear Velezmar - Thank you for sharing your comments about our recently renovated hotel. However, I am disappointed to hear that you thought our front desk staff was not up to par. Many of our guests say the opposite so I apologize that you may have caught them on a bad day. Thank you for choosing to stay with us... More

When booking a last minute cruise from Boston to Quebec, we found it impossible to find a room in Boston vicinity for less than $500 (up to $800 per night). Found out later big doctor convention took all the available rooms in the city which drove up rates for that weekend .Finally got a $250 room through priceline and it... More

The location of the hotel outlook and neighborhood is not great but it is close to green line T and mall (5 minute walk). Another advantage is the free parking and also good breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had some issues with the room and those were resolved by the staff. If you need to go... More

Dear Faisal L - Thank you for mentioning how convenient our hotel is to the T as well as restaurants and shopping here in Cambridge. However, there is a T bus (#69) that takes many of our guests directly to Harvard Square that would be much faster than walking (though the walk is very pleasant as well). Our team thanks... More

This is a better than average HIExpress in terms of the breakfast, room comfort, and location to Cambridge & public transportation to Boston's highlights. There's a shopping center behind it with a grocery store for snacks you can store in the larger-than-normal room fridge, and there's also a Dunkin Donuts & McDonalds if you need some fast food. Easy couple... More

Quick trip to Boston with 2 teenage children. Nice room, comfy beds. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We required a cot and they had it up to our room in less than 15 minutes. No pool and limited but free parking. A 10 minute walk to the head of the blue line T. Easy to get into Boston.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites for a quick trip to Cambridge/Boston for pleasure to see some friends and couldn't have enjoyed it more.

Thank you for your comments. As you pointed out, we are a great location without some of the amenities that guests sometimes want. However, we make up for not having a pool with our friendly staff and exceptional service. We appreciate you choosing to stay with us during your recent trip. More
