A clean and well located hotel, which seems to have become a bit pricey of late, the Hotel Tria is a good option for a short visit to the Boston area. The hotel has plenty of food options nearby, but if you want to head into Boston's centre the T stop isn't far away, and the hotel offers a shuttle... More

I took the family up to see the Yankees whip the Sox at Fenway and wanted to spend the night. This place was pretty close to the stadium and easy to get to. The neighborhood is a little rough, but the property seemed secure and the staff was friendly.

∏pleasantly surprised by Best Western Plus Hotel Tria. The only drawback is that it is a distance from downtown Boston. We took the shuttle and train into Boston each day and to Cambridge. Clean, comfortable stay - the breakfast was very nice.

We stayed here whilst visiting friends in Somerville. The hotel is convenient for Somerville and Cambridge. We always found a free parking spot outside the hotel. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Although the hotel is rather old fashioned our room was quiet, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good with plenty of choice.

I'm almost afraid to give this property a 5 star. The reason; I want to keep it as my special place. This hotel is not a standard 5 star property in the traditional sense. When I first visited it a year ago, exhausted from a 12 hour flight, I did not know what to think. The staff was nice, I... More

once again this hotel provided a great experience. breakfast was excellent and variety was great. The cookies available at checkin were welcomed after a day on the road. The location of this hotel in Cambridge is excellent for people bringing their children to Harvard or Leslie colleges. They also provide a shuttle to Harvard square.

The shuttle service to and from Harvard Square was right on time and the drivers were always friendly. The breakfast was always fresh and hot with lots of bread choices and toppings for cereals or waffle or whatever. Coffee was plentiful. :-) The bar was open in the evenings and provided a friendly "wind down" environment. I'd go back!

Good Location. Near train station. Shuttle available to train station or you can walk there. Close to shopping. Too close to round about and must be very careful going in and out. Breakfast was good. Lots of seating area. Starbucks in adjacent property. Lots of parking in parking lot.
