My boyfriend and I met at Crescent Suites Saturday evening after finishing our respective obligations; a full day of classes for me and a full day of work for him.
Checking in, our keys were ready. The building was quiet and clean. We stayed in a standard room on the 4th floor with a river view. The room was open and relaxing and the design was smart and luxurious.
From Crescent Suites we walked to Moody street (even in dress shoes-it's very close) and had a delightfully Spanish experience. Tapas and sangria at Solea. The front windows were open and our waiter was fantastic.
Back at Crescent Suites we had a fantastic nights sleep on an amazing king sized bed. We woke easily and well rested and opened the blinds to a really beautiful view of the sun glittering on the river. This was our second stay at Crescent Suites so we took advantage of the full kitchen and made pancakes and eggs for breakfast while we watched our fill on the flat screen tv from the very comfortable seating area.
Enough Food network coaxed us back to Moody Street for pizza at The Upper Crust. I really liked their pizza, especially the crispy crust and fresh tomatoes in the sauce.
In 20 minutes we were in Concord for kayak rental on the Concord river for the afternoon. We came back into Waltham for cold beers and pub food at Joe Sent Me.
After another fabulous nights sleep my boyfriend left for Monday morning work in Newton. I went for a very satisfying run over nice, mostly natural terrain along the Charles River, had a great cappuccino made for me by the woman at the front desk and enjoyed the over sized bathtub for a refreshing soak.
The room and setting was so serene I brought in my school work and got a week's worth of work done for one class before it was time to check out.
This is a fantastic building in a fantastic location. It has just recently opened and I see it is a GREAT value for us while the hotel gets up and running. The owner is very involved and available by phone always and could be there in hardly any time at all. There is not always staff in the building. I did feel safe all the time at Crescent Suites.
I strongly suggest Crescent Suites Hotel in Waltham for other couples looking for a "stay-cation" to work into busy schedules.
I also envy people who take advantage of the extended stay option. It is a great location with great comfort, style, functionality, luxury and value.
