My family and I stayed at this hotel on Nov 3rd for 6 nights.
The location is very interesting. It is on the Marina where the USS Constitution is located. It is walking distance to downtown, you just have to cross this small bridge and you are there. I used to go shopping for groceries at Trader Joe's located in Cambridge, only 7 minutes from the Hotel. It is a beautiful drive along the river and MIT Campus. The closest shopping Mall is only few minutes from the hotel called Cambridge Side Galleria. You also have the option to buy groceries or go to CVS by walking about 10 minutes. There are few restaurant around the area that are walking distance. If you travel with children there is a small playground only 1 minute walking from the hotel and a newer one about 1 mile walking from there.
The property itself is a normal residence inn, nothing different. I was a little disappointed that the one bedroom apartment did not offer a real size stove, only two burners. Which wasn't too bad if wasn't the fact that it did not have oven, so I had to heat up my pizzas in the microwave.
The bedding was excellent and so the shower.
My kids loved the pool area, although small they had a great time. It was always very clean.
The breakfast was fair and the service very good.
Night social was nice, but I have to point out that one night they offered stuffed cabbage and bread. It was delicious, but since it was stuffed with meat and rice, I heard people saying that they did not eat meat and they couldn't eat, I saw people eating just bread. I think that it would be a nice touch if they would offer a vegetarian option as well. The server Luis was very nice and always trying to help people requests. Thank you Luis for the great service!
Overall this Hotel is a great option for the strategic location and for the wonderful staff. Ah, one more thing the front desk director Lenette Miron is super friendly and helped me above and beyond searching for places to take my toddlers while my husband was in the Convention.
If you need help finding places she is the person, she will google right there at the desk and give you all the info you need. She is Terrific!!!
