We were attending my brother's wedding and this hotel was suggested to us as a good option. Boy, were we pleased with this choice! The staff at the hotel, and especially Michael the owner, were absolutely outstanding. The rooms were very large, spotless, and every single detail you could possibly hope for had been thought of and addressed. Need a DVD player? There's one built into the flat screen TV. One of your kids fall down and scrape a knee? There's a first aid kit in the bathroom. Need a corkscrew and some wineglasses? No problem--everything was in our room, ready for us to use. The beds were very comfortable and had lovely bedding.

We looked a little peaked when we arrived with our kids, after having been in the car for many hours. Michael immediately offered us cappucinos (which were amazing!). The breakfast changed each day, but was freshly made, frequently replenished and totally delicious. A few of my relatives who were not staying at the hotel arrived to see us while we were enjoying our breakfast and Michael graciously insisted that they sit down and have something to eat. Our children were not merely tolerated, either. They were treated as welcome guests as well, which was rather refreshing.

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. If you're near Boston, check it out. You will be pleased that you did. It is the best hotel deal we have found this year.

Our extended family (grandparents, aunt, uncle, mom, dad, and three young ones) had a delightful stay at Crescent Suites. Michael and his staff are incredible hosts- warm, generous and welcoming. The laundry room (with soap provided) was a huge plus for a trip with young children; breakfast was generous and freshly cooked; the business center even included a printer, the kitchen included full size appliances; and the place was spotless. For us, the location was ideal- near family, the Charles River walk way, public transportation, and also just a short walk from Moody Street which has interesting shops, Lizzie's ice cream, and a wide assortment of ethnic restaurants.

We spent four days at crescent suites. We visited Boston and outside rush hours it was easy to go to the city. The rooms are large, and imppecably clean. The breakfast is excellent and I had the best coffee in a long time.
I recommend without any hesitation!

As a solo woman traveler, it is important to feel safe and cared about when staying at a hotel. What is amazing about the Crescent Suites is how Michael, the owner, and everyone who works there makes you feel that you are valued and cared for. Rather than an impersonal hotel, you are greeted by name and welcomed warmly when you arrive and whenever someone sees you in the lobby or in the breakfast restaurant.
Staying there is not only comfortable, but feels like staying with friends. In addition to a great breakfast every day. the friendly atmosphere, places to walk on the river, the many amenities make this place the next best thing to home. The suite I got for one person was spacious and very comfortable, with kitchen and bath. The price was right, and included free long distance and internet, which I needed to use. The location is great for getting to major highways quickly or anywhere in the Waltham, Newton, Wellesley area and other towns nearby. I plan to stay at the Crescent Suites every time I come up to Boston from Florida, which will be often to see my family and friends.

My family traveled to Boston for a long weekend. We went up for a family event but decided to spend a few days in Boston. Due to the RedSox homestand, getting a room downtown was very hard (and the rooms we did find ran >$400 night). We decided to look outside Boston in some suburbs that were convenient to driving into Boston, along the Mass Pike. We came across the Crescent Suites.

The rooms were big enough for my family of 5. The staff was great. The hotel is brand new so everything was clean and orderly. The breakfast in the AM was just what we needed to start the day (eggs, bagels, coffee, juice).

The location was a bit odd - its in an old industrial area right outside Waltham (the hotel sits between two auto body shops). This was fine for us, as we only were using the hotel to lay out heads to rest at night.

In all, we stayed for two night at half the price a one night stay would have been downtown. The room was big and included a small kitchenette for kids drinks/yogurt/etc.. I'd probably stay here again if I needed to stay West of Boston.

My parents, who live in Florida, have made Crescent Suites their home away from home for the summer. They - & I couldn't be happier. Their suite is spacious, comfortable & clean, and as mentioned in the other reviews, Michael, the proprietor, couldn't be a more gracious host. He has clearly poured his heart & soul into this endeavor. Most hotels/inns of this size wouldn't offer guests the convenience of computer/internet access & a fitness center, but Crescent Suites has both.

Our first taste of this hotel was a phone call to verify that there was a room available and to confirm the price. The gentleman that answered the phone was very friendly and outgoing.
After driving from Toronto, Ontario it was refreshing to be greeted by a warm and friendly young man at the reception desk. After arriving in our room, which was located on the second floor, we felt comfortable, and ready to relax. The room was beautifully decorated and extremely clean. Breakfast was different everyday and delicious.
The staff are always friendly, always say hello, and always ready to help. I highly recommend this facility, and I will definitely stay again when we return to the Boston area.
