Stayed 5 nights. I booked Cambridge view king but they upgraded the room to River view king. I am a gold plus member of Expedia and this hotel offers exclusive amenities for expedia members but I have no idea whether this upgrade is for expedia member or not. Pros : spacious room, clean housekeeping, friendly and helpful staffs, cosy bed,... More

I paid the extra $60 to reserve a river view king suite that came with a generous dining room and sectional. You could comfortably seat ten people in the seating area using the rolling dining chairs and stool. Bed was five star comfortable, climate control worked perfectly, good TV options and there was a mini fridge. A Keurig was provided... More

I only stayed in this hotel overnight for a conference, but what an excellent venue! The staff were courteous and polite, everyone greeted me with a smile, and everyone was super helpful! The conference rooms were set up and kept clean quickly and efficiently. My room was neat and tidy when I got there, and had a great view. The... More

Stayed here for a conference that was held in the hotel. While I didn't have much time to enjoy the great location of this hotel it was not really a problem. The room was very nice and clean. Two great restaurants with great food on premises were more than adequate.

The room (#627) was big enough for us. The bed and shower were great as also the view of the river, from our room! Breakfast (omelet) hmmm! Friendly staff, very helpful too (conciërge and Alejandro). Hotel is across a mall, many shops etc. And nearby downtown Boston and freedom trail. Hope too come again, we have had a great vacation.... More

We were welcomed pleasantly by staff. Accommodations were clean. When we returned later in the evening we sat outside for drinks and there was a pleasant breeze. My husband had a great swim before check out time in the morning. Overall a very pleasant stay. Linda S Nyc

We stayed 2 nights. Great location next to riverfront.. Nice place to jog along the river and very good views of Boston at night. Across the street from the front of the hotel is the Cambridge Galleria good shopping. Easy to jump in cab or Uber and get into the city of Boston.

I scoured the internet for around a month for a reasonable priced hotel in Boston for one night last weekend. Prices were sky high and we almost deserted our plans. Enter the Royal Sonesta Boston. With my AAA card, this hotel offered the best deal I could find of any hotels in Boston and Cambridge. It was still pricey, but... More

I've been here for few days. Let me say first the big plus is the location. It's right on the Charles river and if you get lucky you get your room with a beatiful view on the river and Boston on the other side. The hotel itself is ok, nothing to complain but nothing to be amazed either. It's a... More

Great hotel. Good restaurants--both indoor and out, great quick cafe and a room with a gorgeous view of the Charles River and Boston! Friendly staff too. Good area for walking along the Charles and a mall across the street.
