The Doubletree Suites is located right off I-90 at Exit 20. The Hotel is actually a great landmark, because you can see it from a distance in just about any direction. Killer views from most rooms. 5-minute car ride to the Harvard campus and perfectly located for close-by restaurants and nightlife. They even offer a complimentary shuttle service to Harvard Square--a huge value, because parking is difficult to find anywhere in Boston.
I have an aversion to Hotel restaurants. I believe Hotels are for sleeping and business functions. Absolutely not the case at the DoubleTree. Probably because the Green room restaurant services many patrons on their way to Sculler's Jazz Club (part of the Hotel), a premier Jazz venue in the US. The food here was delicious, fresh and generous portions. This is definitely a cut above other Hilton dining offerings. Look for many combo packages that they offer for top-flight entertainers, dinner in the Green room and rooms.
The staff really stands out here. Whether you are talking to the concierge, front desk or restaurant staff, this property delivers on customer service. I had several special requests on this stay, and the hotel never missed a beat. The Business center had plenty of workstations and the concierge was loaded with recommendations for dining and entertainment. On this stay the executive team made an anniversary celebration a wonderful lifelong memory.
The hotel sits on the Charles river and looks back east over downtown. The views of the river, Boston, Harvard campus and downtown are incredible. The Hotel boasts a roof top bar. Closed at this time of year, be sure to visit during the Summer and Fall season. Again, it offers the best views of Boston. This Hotel is one of the best values Boston has to offer.
The 21-26 # rooms offer a great view of the Charles River/Boston
