It doesn't really matter if you go on Business or Pleasure. The location is 2 minutes from Route 128 and the businesses nearby, and also for Parents wanting to see their children graduate from Bentley University (5 min drive), Brandeis (10 mins) and perhaps also Babson, though that's a bit further out. Lexington and Concord with their revolutionary heritage and Cambridge with its educational heritage are also short drives away. The commuter rail is 5 min drive down Lexington with trains to Cambridge and Boston (15 and 20 mins respectively). It's not downtown Boston but the price is excellent, the rooms are clean with lots of Victoriana from the Landlady's family who are local to Waltham. The house itself was built, yes in 1888, for a Lawyer and is a classic New England property of the era. Much nicer than staying in a hotel chain and very reasonably priced - the owner could not have been nicer. It is truly a home away from home. No breakfast - but no problem as a great European cafe with wifi is 3 mins drive down Lexington and Wilsons Diner, a characterful blue dining car relic from the 50s at least, is about 5 mins for anyone wanting traditional American (or Greek) breakfast fare. Moodie street also offers a great range of restaurants - must be one of the best in the area but I don't know for sure. Less expensive than the nearby hotels I imagine, and ten times as nice.
