I spent five nights here while working at a UMass research center, and it could scarcely have been better. The renovated hotel is airy and spotless, the room was large and comfortable, with free internet and an excellent desk chair (useful for an arthritic!), the staff were extremely helpful. There is free parking in the Center garage, and complimentary breakfast (very simple: bagels, croissants, donuts, muffins, danish, and yoghurt) in the lobby café. The mattresses are an odd kind of foam, but to my surprise one sleeps very well on them. My only criticism concerns the pillows: fiercely anti-allergenic no doubt, but also the kind that fight back when you dig your head into them.
The price was more than reasonable: $104 per night, as against $119 in the rather dingy University Lodge.
This would be a good place to stay for any university person, but it might even be a good jumping-off point for excursions around the lovely Five College area.
