My family stayed here recently and were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean and comfortable. We chose this location due to its proximity to lots of things to do in the area. I would stay here again.

What ever they are using as an air freshener as you enter lobby should be stopped. The scent is awful. Don't have any drinks at bar, as their prices are ridiculously high. Although I understand the security aspect, having to use your room key to activate the elevator every time you go up or down is annoying. Other than that... More

Located directly on the historical MIT campus in the center of Cambridge. Easy walk to the Center of MIT campus, Kendall Square and the Charles River. Contemporary design, 4 star quality accommodation. Reasonable priced property for this area, so high value to be in the middle of two major Universities, MIT and Harvard University. Food options are limited though, however,... More

Stayed here for 3 nights as a family of 4. It was average at best. I'm not sure where the SPG brand positions Le Meridien but if it thinks it is at par or above the Westin it's gravely mistaken. I'm a SPG gold member so I have stayed my fair share of their hotels. What's good: Lobby was nice,... More

If you are looking for a nice, clean hotel within walking distance of MIT and Harvard (if you're a little more energetic), this place is it. They have recently undergone an renovation to the lobby area which is much nicer now. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The prices fluctuate, depending upon what's going on at MIT. What really sets... More

Nice, clean room, friendly service. Bought trough Groupon for a very affordable price and complimentary breakfast. Just a walk away from MIT. Close to restaurants, subway. We requested refrigerator and it was delivered to our room within minutes.

Hotel lobby and elevators have a strange smell. You need your keycard to use the elevator and press tour floor button, but sometimes it just doesn't work and you're forced to go up / down for an extra ride. Housekeeping didn't leave soap in the bathroom. Gym is super small. And lots of other niggles. They need to refurbish the... More

I am always massively disappointed when Starwood bombs because it happens so infrequently. The lobby leads you to believe that this location is like other trendy Le Meridien locations - maybe a kin to the trendiness of the W feel. Chic music, hip furniture, euro bar scene, etc. But the rooms reminded me of the Four Points. Mismatched furniture, nicked... More

The staff here are wonderful! Free coffee in the morning, clean bathrooms, and comfy sheets. I would stay here again. It is just a few minutes from the red line. Or a quick cab ride to downtown, Northeastern, and quick ride to airport during non-rush hour.
