The hotels amenities are old and outdated. The AC/Heater was loud. The business center printer was broken. The walls are thin, i could hear everything from the neighhboring rooms as well as the construction noise in the lobby.

This place is right on the outskirts of Boston, but has amazing views of the Charles River and Boston Skyline. On one trip, they were overbooked and gave us a free upgrade to the Penthouse suite. Needless to say this is one of the best places to stay while visiting Boston. Although its far from the T, it's very close to Memorial Drive and I90 which makes driving very easy.

Happy to hear you were upgraded to one of our bi-level suites - they are terrific rooms.
We are currently undergoing renovations in the lobby & public space areas, so we can't wait to host you and your family once again.

We had a lovely view of the river from our 12th floor room. The suites are spacious and make the most of this atrium style hotel (somewhat dated architecture, but they work to keep the design fresh). The hotel pool is long enough to swim short laps and I had it to myself in the morning. There is a Whole Foods Market a short walk away (Cambridge is just across the brige). Although there were no acts booked while we were staying, the line-up for the jazz club is impressive and it's an intimate venue. The dinner & show packages were priced very well and tempt me to return for that reason alone. We had such a great dinner our first night that we elected to dine at the hotel our second night as well. Terrific service.

Room Tip: The river view suites are worth the upcharge.

Initially, I was confused. I had booked another hotel that was rated about the same- I realized that this hotel was actually a lot closer to Cambridge, but it is categorized as a Boston Hotel.
Let me be very clear, if you are looking for a great, spacious hotel close to Cambridge without paying $400-500 a night. This is it! From reading the reviews- you should know about the shuttle and the double tree brand. The shuttle vans were new, comfortable, and On Time! Only change I would suggest is it to have more availability in the evening, but you can easily pick up a cab. Of course great rooms, comfortable space, and great breakfasts, much better than the hampton inn's. Best choice for the area. Lastly, the front desk manager, Yesly was outstanding! . Multi talented in many areas. it was quiet a relief to get that kind of service compared to our last hotel.

Our apologies for the confusion! We are actually in the process of changing our name to Boston/Cambridge so that folks get a better sense of where we are located. Glad to hear you loved our new shuttle vans - they are quite comfy. Look forward to seeing you soon.

Overall great stay. The staff was really nice and quickly responded to our requests. The only down side was the room would not cool down. We were given a fan which did help. Wouldn't recommmend the breakfast buffet....really expensive.

I travel to Cambridge, MA quite often for work and have always stayed at this hotel. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful! They also have warm chocolate cookies upon check in which are delicious!

The staff is very nice. I had to cancel my first night's stay due to a canceled flight and they did not charge me for the first night.

The hotel is currently going under construction (rebuilding the lobby), but this is not an issue for guests staying at the hotel.

The location is very convenient for me as it's right over the bridge from cambridge. Within walking distance is a Whole Foods. There is also a well known jazz club at the hotel--i have not been yet, but hear great things about it.

The hotel also runs free shuttles to two of their other double tree locations (harvard and copley).

I recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Try to get a river view room
