Our family has stayed in this hotel numerous times in the last 4 years, as it is situated perfectly between MIT and Harvard. The staff is superb, and the accommodations are clean and comfortable. Free parking is often found on the streets, which is very safe even in the evenings. If you can't find street parking, you can park in... More

I lived in Cambridge for a number of years and every summer I return to the city to spend part of my vacation there. I usually stay in the vicinity of Harvard Square but this time I decided to stay near Central Square at Le Méridien Cambridge-MIT. Unfortunately this hotel was a great disappointment. Although the location is good and... More

The Presidential Suite, what could be finer? I have to say this was so appreciated--i arrived late after a long flight, i looked and felt terrible, all i was hoping for was a bigger room than i booked. And i had been upgraded--to an apartment! I could go on and on about the space and amenities, but you should know... More

We stayed here for two nights while doing the sites of Boston. We arrived on a Sunday, so we could park free on the street until 8am the next day. Then the parking garage was $35 for the next day in the attached parking garage. Caroline at the front desk was so helpful and pleasant to talk to! We had... More

I loved the stay at LE MERIDIEN hotel..the service was nice and people were friendly..I would like to mention some people's name who really made my stay beautiful. Ahmed Salem I liked his delicious omelet and Ameer Shajahan I liked the way he served me. The entire team at the hotel were supportive and nice to me as well.

I went to a Red Sox game recently and decided to stay over. Since I get a discount ($300 per night instead of the EYE POPPING $600 they're asking) at this hotel through my employer I decided to give it a shot. to say I was disappointed would be a gross understatement. The furniture was "decent" but in desperate need... More

Arrived to find out they did not save the room we reserved. Got 'upgraded' to a bigger room (end of hallway), but wifi was spotty at times. Many other small complaints, but overall it is just not worth the cost (very expensive, even for Boston). If you need to be near MIT, stay at Kendall Square...nicer area anyway. T stop... More

The staff is very friendly and the area surrounding the hotel is great. Lots of little restaurants, bars and an ice cream parlor. In the heart of MIT as well. We were upgraded to a suite, which was also terrific and spacious. The room is comfortable with Euro style furnishings. Our bathroom, while fine, appeared somewhat tired.

Stayed here for a week on a business trip to MIT. Seems a bit expensive for what you get, but then I don't travel to the USA that often so this may be the norm. Other customers have complained about noise from the fire station and air conditioning and I can attest first hand to both. Fortunately I'm not a... More
