This was one of my wedding hotels last year in July. We had about 10 rooms booked here, including one bridal suite for me. The day started off with the hotel mixing up a bunch of our rooms so one card ended up getting charged 3 times. Mid day, I asked if I could check into my suite to get ready, and they said that the room wasn't ready yet. I thought that was fine, check in wasn't until 3. I check in again at 3:30, and my room isn't ready yet. I noted that it was after 3, and the guy said "well there is a dance competition in town and your room isn't ready yet" with no apology. I would find this annoying during any stay, but during my wedding it was extra annoying and ended up having to get ready in a friend's room. It took a few days for the room/credit card mixup to be taken care of, so that was frustrating too considering many of our guests were coming from overseas. The manager was unhelpful and stopped responding after his initial email. I'm not even sure why he bothered to reach out to me. The hotel itself is really nice and the rooms were nice and clean. The hotel is also really convenient- it's right between Kendall and Central square, and fairly close to the T station. You're also a few minutes away from MIT. But the service we got was pretty awful. I don't think I would recommend this for anything other than a weekend stay- all the details got all jumbled up.

Easy to walk to dining, grocery stores, the river. Room was very quiet in terms of street noise. Lots of outlets and USB plugs. 2-hour metered parking across the street are in effect 8am to 8pm weekdays. Beautiful fall views over Cambridge from the room and can open a small window for fresh air.

Convenient location within walking distance of my business destination and lots of restaurants nearby. Most amenities still not available due to Covid19 precautions, but the room was spotless. I didn't need a car so I can't comment on the parking situation. Didn't need much during my stay, but all the staff I encountered were friendly.

The Hotel Le Meridien Boston Cambridge at 20 Sídney St is one of the best places if anyboby would like to visit MIT. It is located at about three blocks walking distance from MIT and about the same walking distance to the Cambridge Boston subway. Excellent sanitized large rooms with high quality soaps,shampoos, hair conditioners, very comfortable king size bed, table with two chairs, large flat tv with cable channels. Guests rooms are noise free, very nice to have a great sleep. Personel are very kind,helpful, ready to answer any question or doubt, and extremely friendly. One block from Massachusetts Ave where one finds MIT museum,MIT press store, nice coffe shops,pizza places, pharmacies, restaurants near Central Square and easy access to the MBTA subway to go to Harvard Square or Boston for very nice italian,irish and american restaurants.
