What a wonderful place to have a wedding:) Everything about this hotel was wonderful. From the time I arrived to the front desk to check in (welcoming happy people) to our guest room (very clean and updated nice rooms) to the wedding. A beautiful chapel backdrop for the ceremony, then onto the reception food and service was exceptional, did not need or want for anything the servers excellent. Every detail was well taken care of. Loved this place for a event and would highly recommend it.

I stayed here for business at UMass Worchester, a mere 5 minutes from the hotel. So, very convenient location for this purpose; this hotel is used largely for UMass business visitors. Otherwise, location a bit distant from services, not much within easy walking distance, so limited to hotel restaurant. We did have dinner there, Ceres Bistro, the food was excellent. Overall, the hotel is excellent, very modern, contemporary decor, maybe a bit sterile though. Rooms are very roomy, a good desk for working. The free continental breakfast was very simple, baked goods, some fruit, cereal. There was free wireless internet, strong signal. The fitness facilities are limited, small room, some aerobics machines, some free weights. There was a small business center to print out boarding passes. The lobby area is spacious, plenty of room to sit and relax.

Overall very nice hotel. Nice, big and spacious rooms. The in-room computer which seems to be valued by the hotel did not work during my two day stay.
However, the complementory breakfast was very poor and the service was poor. Dry bread if any bread at all, not clean coffemug at the table.

We were completely thrown by this hotel. We assumed that because it was in Worcester that this place would be a total dive. However, from the moment we arrived everything was beautiful from the manicured grounds to the elegant foyer. We went to one of the most exciting and lovely weddings that we've ever been to there. It was a great time. Our room was very comfortable and clean as well. I would absolutely recommend this hotel for an event or if you need a place to rest your head.

The Beechwood is a nice hotel. the rooms are nice, good location, however, the staff need a lesson in hospitality.
We chose to spend our wedding night at the Beechwood thinking it would be a great night away. however, arriving in our wedding attire, we barely got a second glance from the front desk staff. We went to the bar for an overpriced ($8) beer and wine. The barstaff disappeared and my husband had to go looking to pay our tab.
Continental breakfast was a joke. (Ive had better at smaller less expensive hotels.) . the wait staff seated us, brought coffee and never returned. Breakfast offering consisted of fruit,bagels,yogurt, dry cereal. At the cost of over $250 for the night, we would have been better served at the Comfort Inn. I would not stay at the Beechwood again.

Room Tip: choose the comfort Inn

The Beechwood was a very clean comfortable hotel. The staff were very helpful and courteous. The room's decor wasn't appealing, but my disappointment was with the air-conditioning which did not work. These systems shouldn't depend on customers to complain. When traveling for business, you don't want to trade sleeping time for repairs.

Just stayed for a night while visiting local colleges. Initial impression was very positive. Clean and very helpful front desk attendant. Room was attractive with high ceiling. Dinner was good at restaurant but things went south after retiring for the night. The air conditioning unit was an old style unit on the floor and was very noisy when turning on and off and it shot very cold air directly on the person sleeping on that side of the bed while the other person stayed too warm. I think I caught a cold from it. Fix the AC unit and I would visit again. Also thought price was too high explained by the fact that they were almost full from school's parents weekend.
