I had business in Boston but brought my 17-year old son along so we could check out some nearby colleges and just hang out together. The location for this hotel is a little strange: it’s sort of on a concrete island, surrounded by roads and railroad tracks. And, unfortunately, there is no T line subway stop nearby. Having said that, it’s an easy walk to Cambridge (about 20 minutes to Harvard Square) AND the hotel has a free shuttle that will drop you in Cambridge or at various downtown locations. My son and I like our space, so we wanted a suite and ours was quite roomy and nice. We were on the 15th floor, and the view out of the bedroom window towards downtown Boston was quite spectacular (great to see all the rowers on the Charles River directly below, too). Oh, and it was VERY quiet up there. The folks at the front desk were very helpful, but the restaurant was overpriced for lunch (typical of hotels) and the menu selections were less than creative. There’s a small indoor pool which we did not have time to use, and I was told there was a Whole Foods a short walk across the river. If you come here from the airport, take the T line to the Harvard stop, and from there you can either pick up the hotel shuttle (call for the schedule), walk or catch a cab (it’s only about a $8 cab ride).
