For our last night in Boston, we wanted to "splurge" so we took a chance on Hotwire and landed at the Holiday Inn Express in Cambridge. Even though we got a "deal" on Hotwire, it was still close to $200/night. For what we paid, I was expecting very nice accommodations. Our room, while updated, was very tiny. I love staying... More

Thank you for sharing your comments about your recent stay. Many of our guests feel that we are a value for them when they make a reservation and while our rates are sometimes higher, we are far below many of the other hotels in both Cambridge and Downtown Boston. We are happy that you enjoy our brand and hope to... More

The holiday inn is relatively well situated, not far from several points of interest such as MIT, malls, or the museum of science. The breakfast is rather good though a bit limited, and the rooms are functional and comfortable. The only drawback, which is common to many places in Boston, is the rather steep price.

Great location, walking distance to: T station (5 minutes), Galleria Mall (10 minutes), MIT (15 minutes), Museum of Science (10 minutes), Boston (30 minutes). Modern clean rooms, parking (limited) no charge, fridge, hairdryer & iron in room. Good free buffet breakfast. Grocery store (Shaws) right next door. Traffic on Monsignor Hwy can get busy, especially at rush hour on Fridays.

The hotel is on a main road and only a 15 minute drive from Logan Airport. You can easily walk to the Cambridge waterfront/MIT, or there's the Lechmere stop for the T a 5 minute walk. There are some good restaurants a short walk away, as well as the large Galleria Mall. Breakfast was great: pancakes, oatmeal, yogurts, fruits, breads,... More
