Here are the positives and less-than-positives of the Cambridge Doubletree Hotel based on our recent stay last month (September 2010).
Beds: Exceptionally comfortable--the best aspect of the hotel in my opinion
Room: Attractive, clean, good-sized, and done in pleasant restful colors
Bathroom: Modern and clean
Concierge: Friendly and helpful
Location: Excellent for central Cambridge, and adjacent to a lovely river and park (although we weren’t able to enjoy it due to the unfortunate weather when we were there!)
Front desk staff: Reasonably efficient, but not what I would exactly call friendly or welcoming
Food: Average at best, and not inexpensive (note: we only ate lunch there)
Lobby and other common areas: Spacious enough and with a few interesting modern touches, but at the same time slightly dull and sterile and without a particularly inviting ambiance (however this is very much a matter of taste)
Internet access: No free WIFI, and no free access to a business center
Other: A rat trap on the roof just outside our window! On the one hand, I suppose this was a good thing; but on the other hand, we also noted that there was no screen on the window. And no--fortunately, we never saw a rat!
Overall, despite a few down sides, I would still recommend this hotel with the caveat that I do not know the other hotels in Cambridge for comparison.
