This is a proper hotel in my opinion. You pull up and are greeted by the bell man who is ready to help with your bags. Valet politely and efficiently will park the car. This was a big deal for me because I was in an extended size SUV. Job well done to them for finding a spot to park!...

The good thing about this hotel is that, physically, it is quite nice. The lobby is beautiful, the rooms are reasonably spacious, clean and respectably appointed. The plumbing and hvac systems worked well. The gym is fine. Service, though, left something to be desired. Instructions on how and where to park the care were not volunteered and were confusing when...

Flew in from Ireland on my way home to Cleveland Ohio. The hotel is under 6 miles from airport which made getting to and from hotel a short fifteen minute ride. The hotel was perfectly located for sightseeing, shopping, restaurants, bars and public transportation. The lobby moderately decorated the room was spacious with a comfortable bed. As other guest has...

This was my first trip to Meridien Cambridge and I was hesitant based on some poor reviews I read. It's fine, yes overpriced $400+ is ridiculous but it's the going rate so don't blame Meridien for economics. Great staff, clean room, slept well on a business trip..., its fine. Sure it's not a typical Meridien, I've stayed at many Meridien...

This was our second time visiting the Meridien. It is very conveniently situated near MIT. It has the feel of a business rather than a leisure hotel. Hotel rates in Cambridge are expensive and you will pay 5 Star prices for 4 Star facilities and furnishings. This in my opinion is the case with the Meridien. Our room had a...

We stayed for 2 nights on arrival in Boston at the start of our trip. We were checked in by Tiffany who was just lovely. So friendly and recognised our anniversary by giving us a room upgrade and free breakfast during our stay. Our room was a lovely bright corner room on the top floor, and the buffet breakfast was...

Stayed here overnight for a wedding the first weekend in November. Beautiful hotel, wifi worked great, clean, modern looking rooms, nice bar. We were in walking distance to convenient stores and restaurants. We had the best breakfast buffet the next morning.

This hotel lobby is not too enjoyable to be in. The atmosphere is more cold than warm. The chairs and tables are ok, but there is an absence of personality. The guest rooms are the same roughly as any Marriott, and the bathrooms are modern, but on the small size. Beds are comfortable and linens feel good, but the AC...

Stayed here recently on a business trip. The location was very handy, and desk staff were friendly and efficient. Room was quite pricey, so I was surprised that upon entering, I was struck by an extremely noisy air-handling system. It wasn't just my room; a colleague reported the same in another room. Furnishings are stylish and the bed was comfortable;...

This hotel was great! Room service was definitely delicious. Location was fabulous for Mit for Harvard not quite as doable. The bedding and the bath was great and it was spotlessly maintained. The parking garage is right next door as well. Only downside in my opinion is the lack of the pool and the basic ness of the fitness facilities....
