I stayed at this Hampton Inn in Cambridge over the Christmas holiday and wasn't disappointed. The hotel was a good value, newer and clean in a relatively safe semi-industrial area about a block from the end of the Green line Lechmere T station. I arrived at Logan airport and took the free bus/shuttle to the Blue Line Airport station and there purchased a $15 seven day pass for unlimited rides on the subway which got me to the hotel, after transferring at the Government Center station, in only about 15 minutes. If you drive and I didn't, there are a limited number of free parking spaces under the hotel. My suggestion if you are coming to Boston is to take the T and see the city like a local - the subway goes everywhere and is very easy to navigate even if you don't normally take public transit. While there really isn't anything in the immediate area you could easily walk to the Cambridgeside Galleria Mall where there are plenty of places to shop and eat.
The hotel was very nice - the building and furniture appeared to be clean and new. The room included a sofa, desk, flat screen TV, iron, ironing board and safe. The rooms also had those noisy under-window heater/air conditioners that are very loud and don't do a good job of regulating the temperature. The bed and linen were very nice but the pillow was very mushy for a side sleeper like myself.
There was a free Internet-enabled PC with printer in the lobby to check e-mails and print out airline boarding passes. There was also Wi-Fi available if you had your own netbook or notebook computer. Breakfast was included with the room and included the standard Hampton Inn items of waffles, eggs, coffee, juice, danish, cereal, etc.
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel and would recommend it to others. I got a good rate online by reserving ahead using the Hilton website and it was significantly cheaper from where I usually stay in the Back Bay section of town. The only downside was some street and between room noise in addition to the loud under window heaters.
