I stumbled upon Crescent Suites Hotel here on Trip Advisor and decided to book a room based on the first reviewer's recommendation. We usually stay at one of the hotel chains along Rte. 128 in Waltham but this trip the prices that chain was asking was outrageous. So, we took a chance and I'm so glad we did.
As others have noted, Michael has created a very special hotel. The rooms are beautifully decorated. (The photos on the hotel's website are dead accurate.) With a full kitchen in each room, it's like having your own apartment. Michael's also building a lovely park, with stone walls and paths, behind the hotel that is perfect for people and pets.
We come to the Waltham area regularly and often bring our pug. The first hotel I'll check with for availability will be the Crescent Suites Hotel. This place won't be a secret for long.... fingers crossed Michael will have a room for us next year.More
