I loved my stay here, and the room and amenities were excellent for the price I paid. I really wish they had shuttle service to any nearby locations though. Otherwise, for any type of extended stay, I would recommend this place immediately.

I stayed at this hotel during the recent blizzard. It was a great place to weather the storm! The staff are friendly, the room is comfortable, there is a covered garage, all the essentials to making me feel at home. They live up to the name "HOMEwood".

Homewood is a brand that we trust, we know what to expect. Spacious room, great cable selections and fantastic breakfast. Just one block away from Cambridge, in a residential part of town this was a great location. Front desk was helpful in securing menus for our takeout dinner. Delivery directly to the room, so it was very convenient. Fire place room with jacuzzi...nice touch. Wonderful lounge area with huge flat screens. Living room effect made it comfortable to watch TV as we decided to watch the Super Bowl outside our room. Snacks from CVS...all of the comforts of home.

We stayed here only one night - Saturday night to Sunday morning, and we wished we could have stayed longer!

Our room was ultra comfy. It had a great kitchenette wth full refrigerator and stove, and living area, with a separate bedroom. There were two quality, flat-screen TV's, one in the living area and one in bedroom.

The lobby and lounge area were very pleasantly appointment. The included full breakfast was delicious and offered several options, so you're certain to find something to such your appetite!

The location is great. You are only a few minutes from the Main (Red Line) Subway station which can get you into Cambridge and Boston in just a few minutes. A couple of bus lines run right down Massachusetts Avenue, and there's a bus stop right near the Hotel. Of course, cabs are nearby as well. If you want to see a movie, the great ol' Capitol Theatre is only a few blocks down the street. There are a number of restaurants a short walk or drive away. There are several take out places that also deliver right to your room.

There staff and service here were exceptional and very pleasant and welcoming.

Room Tip: A room on the upper floors will be somewhat quieter (as far as Street Noise)and a bit more of a view...

clean room, breakfast, some nights dinner, friendly staff.....nice. I was there for over a week for a school residency, but would stay with my family as well. The fireplaces were a nice touch and the kitchen was very helpful. There is a CVS next door for snacks, it all worked out great.

I was staying at "Homewood suites" for 5 days, had a very pleasant experience.

In terms of location there isn't really anything to do near the hotel but it's really easy to get by via bus or subway in a couple of minutes ride.

The room was great though I got a room which is to the road side that had some mild cars noise but it didn't bother me much so had no complaints.

the staff was very friendly and helpful and the complimentary breakfast, supper and WiFi access made things a lot easier as you can just crash into the hotel after a busy day and feel right at home.

Would definitely return and stay again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side of the hotel's entrance would probably be quieter as they aren't on the si...

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! The Home away from home title was especially nice to see since that's often a tagline we use when describing the hotel. When you come and stay with us again please note that there are shopping and recreational options ( Minuteman Bikeway / Pedestrian path) in Cambridge and Arlington within walking distance. Also we are 2 miles from Harvard Sq. accessible via public transportation both buses that pick-up across the street from the hotel and a subway 1/2 mile away. Please contact me if you wouldl like more information for your next stay. Thank you again for your review!

A four night stay for us recently.... Hotel was clean and very nicely furnished. Staff very helpful. Parking on-site under the building very handy and kept one out of the elements. No complaints, but a couple of quirks:

a) I had to have my key re-programmed FOUR times. (No, wasn't carrying next to cell phone).
b) Please re-do the keys so that they're like every other HHonors property. The picture/writing leads you to almost invariably put it in wrong.
c) This is much too large a hotel for only ONE elevator. The odd thing is is that there is a second elevator from the lobby to the parking garage. Not sure why a second elevator to ALL floors couldn't have been put in since the initial cost is mostly in having an elevator at all.

Thank you for letting us know about your stay. We appreciate your business! I apologize for the keys needing to be reprogrammed. The second elevator only goes to /from the parking garage for security reasons, it requires each person entering the hotel from the parking lot area to switch in the lobby to the elevator that goes to the guest floors so that the Guest Service Staff is aware of anyone entering the hotel. On future renovations we will look at whether addtional elevators would be possible. We hope you will stay with us again!
