I'll start by saying that all we really wanted was a clean place to stay that would put us close to the airport for the night before we returned to the USA. I searched for places with airport shuttles and came up with Cambridge.
So, it didn't have it's own shuttle and it wasn't all that close to the airport. We took a generic shuttle from the domestic airport to the hotel and ended up with a taxi back to the airport.
The neighborhood is not bad but also not pretty or with great late night food nearby.
Our check in clerk bordered on rude when she told me that there was an additional $50 that would be charged to our card and refunded up to a month later. ( haven't gotten our bill yet....it remains to be seen what that is about). All questions were dealt with in this same officious, unfriendly manner. Finally, heading up to our room, the elevator was glitchy.
The room was actually pretty nice....clean and well laid out for a smaller urban hotel. Not bad at all.
Later, I went down to use a computer but quickly decided not to bother. You pay for wireless based on time and another person on one of their public computers was trying hard to get the desk man to help him because the computer was having all sorts of connection problems while still charging his account for the minutes it was doing nothing. No help or sympathy was offered.
Morning checkout was also harried and slow.
