“Spruced up hotel convenient to U Mass Medical Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I have stayed at this hotel several times over the last many years (~20?), and very recently the rooms and the restaurant have been spruced up to give the hotel a brighter, newer look. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The fitness center, although quite small, has new equipment. The in-house hotel has been thoroughly renovated, with a good restaurant section and the a bright, colorful, new bar. Friendly staff in the hotel and the restaurant. The rooms all have iPads, although I have my own and did not use the one in my room. A very convenient place to stay if you are visiting U. Mass. Medical Center or the Abbvie Bioreserch Center, not too far from the center of Worcester. About 1 hour and 10 minutes from Logan Airport during rush hour.

The rooms were nice and clean nice location and friendly staff
only issue is the noise from the A/C unit, turns off and on all night and is pretty loud, woke me up 6 times the first night.
The free breakfast is not much in offerings, I would recommend dining elsewhere the bistro is way over rated for the quality of the food.

Stayed here one night while attending a meeting at U Mass Med School. Reception was pleasant and fast Room was spacious, well appointed; 2 queen sized beds very comfortable with fresh sheets and spreads, excellent pillows. Nice bathroom- though low water pressure. Large closet. 2 newspapers at the door in the morning. I wish I could have stayed longer. Free wifi - always appreciated. We ate dinner in the restaurant (Ceres), actually outdoors, at a table on closely cut grass. It was fine once the sun went down. Good service and a nice menu [will review that separately]. I had a voucher for a continental breakfast - and they offered special continental sides - $4 for 2 eggs and bacon! A good deal. One slight nitpick - I use a cane and obviously have some trouble walking, so when I showed for breakfast, I was surprised that the hostess showed me to a table farthest from the door when there were so many free table closer to the entry. A bit odd. Otherwise - a nice short stay. I don't know the cost, as my bill was paid by the meeting.

Three nights here on business. This is a pleasant (cylindrical!) hotel across from UMass medical campus, surrounded by pleasant landscaping. The checkin: pleasant, welcoming. Rooms: I stayed in a junior suite. The room was clean, well appointed and had fresh sheets. The airconditioning worked well. Complaints were the worn carpet in the room, absence of slippers and a rather anemic shower/ icky shower curtain. Room service took 30 minutes and could be ordered using an ipad in the room. The menu is decent, reasonably priced and the food arrived hot and fresh (excellent cod- over salted vegetables). Quiet nights sleep, average breakfast continental buffet. I would certainly stay here again on business, although not sure that this is necessarily a "destination" hotel.

We stayed at this hotel in April 2013. It was excellent in every way. Our room was so immaculate and every fixture and piece do furniture was of the highest quality. The staff was also wonderful, especially the cleaning staff. They were respectful and did a wonderful job on the rooms and the entire hotel.

My son took me to the Beechwood for their Mother's a day Buffet. It was extraordinary. The ballroom in which we were seated was tastefully appointed and the temperature was comfortable. A complimentary drink or glass of champagne was the crowning glory. The buffet menu offerings were carefully selected, ie, a wide offering of breakfast items including freshly baked waffles, a carving station, salad bar, tasty entrees, shrimp cocktail, and delightful desserts. The waitstaff, especially mine, Beth and Kim, were professional and were the perfect compliment to the meal. As a food service professional with many years in the industry, I asked if the Executive Chef was still there as I finished my meal. He was and he graciously accepted my kudos on behalf of his team. I can't wait to sit outdoors at the Ceres Bistro for a summer interlude. APPLAUSE!!!

Because my husband was in the UMass Medical Center for a life-threatening accident, it was especially wonderful to stay at the Beechwood Hotel. Free Yellow Cab service to and from the hotel to the hospital, courteous and helpful staff, ummaculate room and top-knotch food made my stay very comfortable during such a difficult time. A big thank you to everyone who made me feel comforted and comfortable!

Room Tip: The hotel is round, so each room has an excellent view. Very quiet and dark for ease of sleeping...
