We arrived early and were allowed to checkin immediately (around 2pm). The desk clerk was very helpful in directing us to somewhere to eat and how to get to downtown Boston. There is a bus stop across the street that allows you to get on a bus that will take you to either Porter or Harvard Square transit stations. The room had a full size refrigerator, sink, microwave and cooktop. Breakfast was provided every morning and dinner Monday thru Thursday.

I went online at the last minute and got a very good rate for his roomy hotel room. It was great! CVS right next door makes it easy to grab the things you forgot...safe neighboorhood was walking at night very comfortably.

This was a reasonanly priced/ affordable full service hotel w/kitchen close enough to Cambridge schools. Great for dropping off children at area colleges. We will probably stay there again for Parent's weekend and similiar trips.

This hotel has a great location not only from the city centre and airport, all easy to get to, but also Harvard university.
The hotel has fantastic sized rooms, very spacious. Breakfast was complimentary and very nice, the only 'x' we had was the shower wasn't as powerful as we were used to at home.
Taking a walking tour of Harvard is a must and we were lucky enough to get a personalised one as it was early in the day and our guide was a fantastic actor supplementing his income by doing tours and thus put a lot of effort into getting the atmosphere right for us. His knowledge of the history was also entertaining.

We had a King Suite which also included a sofa bed, as well as a jacuzzi. Our only quibble was that we found the bed a little hard for our tastes, but we could sleep on it and we'd return for a weekend trip, despite the bed. Frankly, we were delighted with our room and the hotel.

We had a DVD player with each TV, one in the bedroom and one in the living/kitchen area. The staff was friendly and helpful. An elevator takes you to a parking garage below the building. The garage is well-lit and unseen from the street. If you like to shoot hoops, there's a tiny lit basketball court behind the hotel. On the side of the hotel facing the street, the breakfast room opens out to a patio, which also held a gas grill. I'm not sure of the procedure or protocol of getting access to that grill. You'd might want to determine that if your heart is set on grilling.

I didn't see the pool - not a pool person - although the gym had nice Precor equipment. You could get a good workout there.

Lots of outlets in the room for all our digital devices. I usually travel with a power strip but didn't need it.

For dining, if you'd rather not cook even though the stocked kitchen would allow you to, the Menotomy Grill and Tavern next door offers delicious food. (Try the clam chowder.) A CVS also is on the other side of the restaurant and within walking distance of the hotel.

I would eagerly stay here again for a Boston weekend.

Great location, friendly staff, nice rooms. Great breakfast with many choices. Free parking although many cars took up more than a space causing us to park in overflow outside. No fault of the hotel's.

Staff was attentive and pleasant, managed an early checkin by keeping our bags and quickly arranged for our room when we arrived back later. Breakfast is superb. Parking available and close to where we needed to be.
