“Great hotel, wonderful view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Continental breakfast is fantastic. Wonderful view of the river with the colleges rowing in the morning and of the city. Hotel staff was charming and funny. The beds were incredibly comfortable and if you are lucky enough to get a suite, they TVs in the bathroom mirror. Hello swank!

We spent 2 nights here in a great full suite. We had a living room with TV and dining table, plus couches. Then a frig and microwave plus large bathroom and bedroom. From the bedroom we could see Harvard and the Charles River. Everyone here was super nice and the shuttle takes you over to Harvard Yard. Leave the hotel and walk across the street and walk/run/stroll along the Charles River. Walk to Harvard central area in 10 minutes. Very convenient and great price, plus our room came with a continental breakfast which was plenty of food options.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a river view.

The view of the river is breathtaking; the suite was beautiful, and the staff accommodating and friendly. In addition, those warm choc chip cookies are yummy! I usually don't pay much over $100 per night at a hotel; but in this case, the suite, the view, and in Boston, it was well worth the price!

After a long day of travelling, it was great to be met by a smiling face, and someone that couldn't seem do enough for you. We were greeted with a bag of goodies, and a nice warm cookie (how good is that!)

I am very laid back about most things in life, but when it comes to my hotel stay, I am fussy and a little hard to impress. Double Tree Suites by Hilton was simply flawless! From my suite, the homely living room furniture, their famous 'Sweet Dreams' pillows, the bathroom [I have a thing for bathrooms], the staff, the food, and to the location, everything was perfect! The staff were extremely helpful and courteous and they spared no expense at affording me and my family a true Hilton VIP welcome and stay. Their breakfast menu was fabulous though I mostly had breakfast at HBS, but my cousin's wife and my son were extremely impressed and happy with the breakfast. The location was just a stone throw from Harvard Business School so I could easily nip from campus to the hotel and back without needing a car or a taxi. The view of the Charles River with those gorgeous spring blossoms and speed boats flying by in the morning with their water trails is a view to die for! And at night? It is glorious!!

I had checked in and met my VIP welcome letter on my bed, and I later noticed that I needed a better kettle or something and I asked for a kettle. The staff ensure that not only did I get a kettle but they included a microwave oven as well telling me that I must need it for my young son! Talk about exceptional customer service.

The Hotel also took me and my family out to Downtown Boston and kindly came back to pick us up when we were done! This hotel is a home from home. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for a [top floor] suite/apartment with a view over the Charles River! In spring, the spring blos...

Nice hotel, good location but a bit pricey when you factor in the $35 per night parking fee and $10 per day internet fee. They also do not offer any kind of free breakfast in the morning. This seems to be the typical set up of hotels in the Boston area. I was happy that we were able to check in to the hotel early and our room had a nice river view, but was not happy that we received a bottle of water and small bag of popcorn instead of the fresh baked chocolate chip cookies that is the normal DoubleTree standard at check in. I called the front desk and requested a late check out due to a morning college tour at Boston University and was very disappointed when told by the front desk clerk that this hotel does not offer late check out even though it was mentioned in some of the hotel literature in the room. This forced us to drive our car into town and pay for metered parking near the college.

Your honest feedback is appreciated - thank you for taking the time to provide us with a review. The $35 parking is standard for all guests and the $10 Internet charge is based on an upgrade to a higher speed. We do offer the chocolate chip cookies at check in, however, it's possible that we unfortunately ran out just prior to your arrival. In regards to late check out this is based on availability and we are not always able to accommodate.

We spent three nights at the Doubletree Suites visiting friends in Cambridge, We had a great suite overlooking the river. We especially appreciated the great help in changing our airline flights going back home from both concierge Fabian Zamora and concierge Aklilu Mechi! They made our trip and stay much easier and should be highly commended and given raises. Breakfast was excellent as well.

Room Tip: Try to get a roome that looks out over the river toward Cambridge
