Reviewed December 31, 2013

We love staying here because the rooms are very modern and clean, and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. It's close to where our son lives. It's in a quiet area but it's not far from Harvard Square and many good restaurants. There's a lovely walking path nearby.

Stayed at this Homewood Suites in Arlington, the address is "1 Mass Ave." right on the Cambridge divide. It just happens to be close to family we were visiting after Christmas, so the location couldn't have been better. With covered parking, we left the car and walked everywhere we needed to go. A CVS is next door, as well as a nice restaurant, Menotomy Grill and Tavern. The suite was big enough for 4 of us.
The Lodge area in front of the hotel faces Mass Ave. and has a nice central fireplace, with a living room sitting area on one side, and dining area on the other. The breakfast was quite good, probably because they have a real kitchen, also used to make a dinner selection Mondays thru Thursdays.
We'll definitely stay there again, actually already booked another date in January! Todd at the front desk, has been very helpful.

Outstanding homey suite hotel (showing a ittle wear) provides nice comfortable accommodations well located with courteous, caring staff, attentive service, and reasonable rates. Wonderful for families, business and solo use, and visiting nearby friends, even offers opportunity to entertain i the larger suites.

I find it difficult to pin down a review for this hotel. The check-in experience was excellent, the front desk staff courteous and helpful. The suite was well-equipped in the kitchen, but I felt that the bedroom closet was too small, and the dresser was too small for an extended stay hotel. I was unable to unpack one of my suitcases due to lack of space. I booked the room was three weeks, and in the future I would not stay longer than a week. I had a problem with housekeeping. I work at night, and I informed the front desk of this upon arrival, and I was told a note had been left for housekeeping, and my suite would be done first thing in the morning, since I sleep during the day. I went several days without having my suite cleaned, due to some communication problems with housekeeping. They did an excellent job, they just didn't always arrive when they were supposed to. The breakfast provided was very good, with plenty of variety. The dinners 4 nights a week were usually also very good. The common areas were spacious and well equipped, and the fitness center was nicely done. The parking garage was a little tight, but I never had trouble finding a spot. The hotel is in a good location, not far from Harvard/Cambridge area, and very close to bus and subway transportation. If not for the small size of the bedroom, and the problem with housekeeping, I would have given this hotel a much higher rating.

I stayed at Homewood Suites by Hilton Boston/Cambridge-Arlington for around 10 days in January with my family, while we looked for a longer term accommodation in Cambridge.

We really appreciated having a small kitchen as we were travelling with small children. The kitchen was fully equipped with a nice big fridge, which made it possible for us to stay in if we wanted to and cook. There was a door between the bedroom and the living room/kitchen area, which was nice, but you needed to go through the bedroom to get to the bathroom.

The reception staff were friendly, and we especially enjoyed chatting with one of the wait staff in the morning while getting the complimentary breakfast, as she was so cheerful.

We found it convenient that there was a laundry room, with two washers and two dryers. There is a CVS just next to the hotel which was open late.

Loved the area and ease of getting here. The rooms exceeded our expectations as far as furnishings and accommodations, but make sure you get a room on the other side of the hotel from the very noisy health club across the street - they started chucking tractor tires around at 6am. Not the "wake up" call I wanted...
