Hotel's Favorite
5.0 of 5 bubbles
Felt inclined to write this review after seeing the hotel is only 3 stars. It genuinely deserves 5, the decor is great in person, the staff are lovely and the hotel is very clean, and in a convenient location. The bed and pillows are super comfy and the room just feels cosy.

We have just come from NY City, we stayed in a 4 star RIU but this is much better.

Thanks all at the Cambria!

Calling to the hotel about one week prior to arrival revealed a lower price than I had booked months ago. I was informed of the change and was able to cancel the previous reservations and lock in the new price. The room was very well appointed, with lots of modern décor. Bathroom was glass enclosed with tiles throughout the room and shower area. Bed was very comfortable and extra pillows were a plus. One problem we encountered was the air conditioner in the room was not working and it was quite warm ever after lowering the thermostat. A call to the front desk was promptly addressed, and not being able to correct the situation, a new room was assigned to us with little interruption to our daily plan. Nick was very helpful with all aspects of our price change and the problem with the room assignment. He made our arrival quick and easy, which was greatly appreciated! The Cambria is a wonderful hotel, this being the second one we have tried, and both were affordable and well designed.

From the moment I walked to the front desk, it felt like I have made it to the right place. The front desk manager, Anthony, greeted me to the point that he made me feel I had a brother here.
This is a new hotel, so you get to taste the new in an old neighborhood that is becoming upscale. Close to downtown Boston, with just a $10 ride via taxi (Uber costs more), you can walk around the historic areas.
The hotel also boasts a bar on the roof, but I couldn't access as I was on short time, but the bar near the reception area looks real nice. Although there's no breakfast offered by the hotel, there's a Starbucks and a Dunkin Donuts about 200 steps from the entrance door.

At this moment, it’s 1AM and I’ve been woken for the third time by either a drunkard shouting and fighting in the hall or a train or a late departure from the airport. This place is right in the departure path of Logan, and right across from the train yard in South Boston. It’s loud and you hear everything. Most of the food and beverage in the “market” is expired and we told them this over a week ago to no avail. They valet cars over three blocks away so it takes 20 minutes to call two vehicles around. On Friday I walked with one of the valet managers (as he was the only one on, the rest were in a meeting) so he didn’t have to make two trips. I felt bad, he’s a great guy and was the only one that seemed responsible in the entire complex. Housekeeping didn’t change my linens even when I left a note on the bed asking them to do so with a $10 tip. People working there just smile at you and make you wait...four valets working this morning, called for my truck from my room and stood in the lobby for a half hour before they realized they hadn’t picked it up. Folks that showed up 15 minutes after me got their cars before me. Housekeeping doesn’t clean the shower or vacuum every day. The driveway for the hotel is so small, three full size vehicles can’t fit and they make you move it a half block away if you can’t load your car in one shot. You get what you pay for. It is not what it appears to be. It looks nice inside and the beds are decent, the shower is good size but cold at best. Bathroom is large enough. No irons. Keurig in the room but they don’t replenish the K cups if you use them. This is not upscale; it’s a complete mess with zero organization and accountability. Never again. Completely missed the mark. Management should be ashamed of such a poor performance all around based on what they advertise. They need to get it together.

The hotel look wise is amazing, very clean and visually appealing. Upon first arrival it wasn’t too bad the hotel is clean and very nice and the first workers who checked us in was friendly. It was our first stay here and no one let us know that you need the key card to do literally everything in the hotel, we had to figure out everything on our own. We tried to ask a worker a few questions and she referred us to go back to the desk because she had no idea. Upon first look at the rooms I was pleased, but after looking around for a bit the windows were fairly dirty the sheets were stained. There was no water pressure in the room, and there was only cold water of what actually came out of the shower. We booked the package that was supposed to have $25 credit towards lunch or dinner, after getting to the roof restaurant the food was disappointing, we ended up not eating more than a few bites and we were still charged full price dispute what we booked.
Overall, not very satisfied with our stay.

The Cambria Hotel on West Broadway is well located, I stayed there while working in Seaport, it was only a 20 minute walk from my meeting. Mass transit is across the street, and both Starbucks and Dunkin Donut are less than a block away. The rooms were spacious and clean. The price was much lower than other hotels in the area and the staff was attentive and courteous.

We just checked out today as part of a weekend trip to visit Boston/Salem. To start, the room was very clean. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a decent size. We were very close to another building where we got front row seats to a beer pong tournament every night. This was easily resolved by the large blackout curtain. The hotel was also accessible to a few restaurants, our favorite being Worden Hall which was just a few steps from the hotel.

Now for the negative...the parking...
There’s really nowhere nearby to park your car overnight(or for longer than two hours) so we had to use the valet. It’s $50 a night which we felt was a rip off for the service we received. The driveway is very small so only 2-3 cars can fit at a time and a valet attendant was hardly ever available. We had to wait up to 35 minutes for the car each time we wanted to leave and this is after calling the front desk 20 minutes ahead. Each time the person at the desk acted like they didn’t know we called. It was really frustrating and we almost lost some reservations because of it. Otherwise the hotel was pretty close to everything we wanted to see and only a 35 min drive from Salem. Very convenient and comfortable for what it was.

This is a lovely hotel with a great location - it’s ten minutes by Uber from Logan airport and sits directly opposite the Broadway T line station so you can easily access the rest of the city.
Our room was a good size (we had a king bed which was very comfortable) and was equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, a safe and fridge.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and it was a great base for our visit to the city.
I recommend getting the seven day Charlie pass from the T station as it’s the cheapest and easiest way to get about - very good value too- we used it numerous times in our five day stay.

This is an update to my previous review titled “Comfortable room, horrible valet”. While I stand by my previous claims that the room was clean, comfortable and spacious, sadly, I must now critique the customer service. This hotel has the ambiance of a 5-star hotel with the customer service of a motel. From check in to now what is months after my stay, the experience has been less than desirable.
My stay was booked on orbitz.com in September where it was paid in full. When I checked in to the hotel on October 9th, it had not been disclosed to me that my reservation was not found in their system. After my trip was completed, I was surprised to find that my card had been charged for the full price of the room. When I called the hotel to address this issue I was told to take it up with Orbitz and that a refund could not be issued from the hotel. I then called Orbitz who refunded me the full amount of my stay seeing as I had paid the hotel in full directly, albeit in error due to the hotel’s confusion. Unbeknownst to me, the hotel decided they could indeed offer me a refund and did so without notice. Now we are here in February where I have once again been charged for my stay from the hotel. It has taken 6 months to pay for a weekend trip that was already PAID FOR. This entire experience has turned in to a tremendous pain and inconvenience.

I cannot in good conscience recommend this hotel. I wish I had looked more closely at some of the negative reviews and I urge you to do the same. My findings during my stay were pretty accurate in reflecting what I had read. However, I was lured in by their “newness” and trendy appearance. I wish I had stayed at a more reputable hotel chain that I was familiar with. To top it off, the $50 a day 35+ minute wait (if you can even find someone to help you) valet only adds insult to injury. While I would love to visit Boston again, this hotel will not be part of my next visit.

Directly across the street from the "T" Broadway Stop so very easy to get to and from. This is one of the "upper" Choice Hotels I've stayed in. While it is nicer and modern, it still has that "Choice" hotel feel. For example, I requested more towels and toiletries, while a downtown location, I would expect them to bring these items to my room, the hotel staff (while very friendly) told me to travel down to the front desk to pick up the items, as I would at another "Choice hotel." Just don't be fooled by the downtown, modern style.

As for the hotel itself, the room was the "standard" downtown Boston size, maybe a tab on the smaller size. But the view was amazing, and very walkable to some amazing spots for food and drink. And as I've mentioned before, directly across the street from the "T" so easily accessible for tourist or business needs. I would stay again.
