good to very good restaurants close by, walking distance or short drive. 5 block walk to Alewife Terminal on the T. Wife and I were very happy except for occasional noisy heater at night. There is covered parking which is easily accessed by elevator. Morning breakfast is pretty much standard fare but the quality was good . Care is taken... More

It was a very clean, nice large suite room. Very good price and near (by car) to MIT and Harvard. Would stay there again! Excellent value for the price. Staff was very nice. Free breakfast and parking too. The workout room was small but seemed to have enough equipment in it. Great restaurant, Metonomy, across the street that stays open... More

We were traveling for a family wedding in Boston, and Homewood suites was ideally suited. Most of our family was in Arlington, at a 10 minute drive, and that drove the selection of the hotel itself. The hotel is well located , about a 35 min drive from Logan airport. There are a lot of restaurants and shops in the... More

Great stay, right beside a fun restaurant/bar with good food. CVS next door. Good parking garage. Only negative was that it was pretty far from downtown and there was often a lot of traffic. Friendly staff, clean and nice sized rooms.

Title says most of it. Bill for two nights was nearly $600, for cheap sheets, dated-decor, dull breakfast. One odd and unappealing thing was an assemblage of many trash cans that greet you when you get off the elevator. That's a first. To be fair, the staff were all nice, helpful and well-meaning.

We had a great time!! Finally alone from family exhausting us! They would never find us here! Lived our room especially the fire place! Amazing to have time all to our self! We walked the paths and went to the pond but frankly just mostly hunkered down cause we don't get alone time often

We stay at this hotel whenever we visit our son at Tufts. It is close to the campus, clean, quiet and the rooms are spacious. We appreciate the convenience and the ease of parking. Also, there are many good restaurants on Massachusetts Avenue near the hotel.

This hotel is right on the edge of Arlington and Cambridge. It's easy to access and not a far drive to Cambridge proper. My only issue with this hotel is that housekeeping didn't come to clean the room until around 4:00 PM. I like to come back to a clean room and don't like my evening interrupted by the room... More
