“Great Hotel, Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Suite hotel with separate living room for relaxing after a long day out sightseeing or taking care of business. The hotel is on the Charles River, providing great views of Cambridge and Harvard. Very comfortable bed, amenities were good and the room was very clean. Makes a great weekend getaway destination with a Trader Joe's across the river for loading up on in-room snacks & beverages. The hotel breakfast buffet was excellent, but could be considered a little pricey if you are traveling with a big family. Finally, staff was great as were the convenient shuttles to downtown, Harvard Square and the Aquarium. I'd stay here again in a minute.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor to enjoy the river view.

We always have a wonderful stay at Double Tree when my husband needs to go to Dana Farber Hospital. From the front desk to the housekeepers everyone is friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious the views always wonderful, beds comfortable and we love that all rooms have a frig! Can't wait to return for a couples weekend. The only thing I can say that does not make us happy is the fact that the shuttle does not go to the local hospitals.

The Hotel staff are so nice, and helpful. The new renovation in the lobby is incredible. The shuttle bus is very convenient, in that location the shuttle can take you to downtown Boston, Harvard Square, and Copley Place. The location is perfect near the water, and secluded and makes you feel like you are on a little resort away from the reality. The Veggie Pizza in the hotel is delicious, also with the $15 all you can eat breakfast.

Continental breakfast is fantastic. Wonderful view of the river with the colleges rowing in the morning and of the city. Hotel staff was charming and funny. The beds were incredibly comfortable and if you are lucky enough to get a suite, they TVs in the bathroom mirror. Hello swank!

We spent 2 nights here in a great full suite. We had a living room with TV and dining table, plus couches. Then a frig and microwave plus large bathroom and bedroom. From the bedroom we could see Harvard and the Charles River. Everyone here was super nice and the shuttle takes you over to Harvard Yard. Leave the hotel and walk across the street and walk/run/stroll along the Charles River. Walk to Harvard central area in 10 minutes. Very convenient and great price, plus our room came with a continental breakfast which was plenty of food options.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a river view.

The view of the river is breathtaking; the suite was beautiful, and the staff accommodating and friendly. In addition, those warm choc chip cookies are yummy! I usually don't pay much over $100 per night at a hotel; but in this case, the suite, the view, and in Boston, it was well worth the price!

After a long day of travelling, it was great to be met by a smiling face, and someone that couldn't seem do enough for you. We were greeted with a bag of goodies, and a nice warm cookie (how good is that!)
