Stayed for a weekend and am impressed. Rates were reasonable. I arrived on a redeye and was able to check in a bit early, which was appreciated.
The lobby is attractive with a nice living room to sit in with complimentary coffee and beverages. The room was a little on the small side and faced the interior courtyard. It was very quiet at night. The decor is a little eccentric and heavy on the fur and animal prints but not as garish in person as it appears in pictures. The bed was extremely comfortable with Frette linens and a nice down featherbed atop the mattress. It felt like sleeping in a cloud. The room was immaculate and odorless. The bathroom had very little counter space but was adequate for one person. Animal print robes are provided.
Amenities include Etro toiletries and a lot of thoughtful touches like an umbrella in the closet and a wide variety of things from hair curlers to phone chargers that can be requested.
I ordered room service breakfast which was good, delivered punctually, and not unreasonable value.
Location is good, in Kendall Square in Cambridge. It is adjacent to and connected to the Cambridgeside Galleria Mall, which offers shopping and dining options. It is walking distance to the green line and red line.
Parking is $20 per night self parking, with in and out privileges.
Overall an excellent stay - will be my go to hotel next time I'm in Boston.
