“Spacious, comfortable suite”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

I spent a night here for a business meeting and was quite happy with the accommodations. The suites are very large. They have a feeling of a small apartment. Unlike some other suite hotels, the bedroom is separate from the living room area and actually has a door.

There is also a small kitchen area with a frig, microwave and coffee maker. The bedroom is also located at the back of the suite so any hall noise is not noticed.

The living room also had a dining table, a full sized sofa which I believe is a pull out bed, a chair and flat screen TV.

The room was clean, the decor okay and soon the room will need a fresh coat of paint but it was a nice location, right next to the Charles RIver and within walking distance to Harvard. The Charles has a walking/bike path beside it so it's a nice place to take a walk although, you are walking next to a very busy and noisy street.

It is also a very short walk to a Trader Joe's and Whole Foods which is great if you are here for an extended stay.

The only meals I had here were a couple of continental breakfasts which were fine and a sit down meal with the 100+ other folks in my group. It was a well prepared and tasty lunch. If I were planning a business meeting or needed a long term stay hotel I would certainly be back. It is also easy access to downtown Boston.

I can't comment on price because we received group pricing for our meeting.

Front desk was very pleasant. Nothing bad to say about the place.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the Charles while others have a view of what looks like a barren construction ar...

I travel for business frequently and seek out DoubleTree locations because I always find consistent, first class treatment at the DoubleTree. The staff at each location is attentive and I believe they are genuine when trying to make my stay everything I need it to be.

Recently spent a week in Boston. This Hotel was amazing. The rooms were spacious, clean and the views from our window were fantastic. I watched rowing club on the Charles River from the bedroom window. We had a king corner suite. It was perfect. We were able to eat in our room due to having a microwave and fridge. Saved us tons of money eating breakfast and sometimes lunch in the privacy of our room. Every restaurant we ate at gave us so much food we were able to take leftovers home for the next day. The service in the hotel was outstanding. The restaurant had delicious food. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay. And, the shuttle was such a great addition. We had some of the nicest drivers. Al from Albania was the most courteous and nicest guy. I wish there would have been breakfast provided, but its a small price to pay for such a nice place to stay.read less

Being described as "amazing" and "perfect" is every hotel's dream – to be described as both in 1 review, we are elated! We are so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your recent stay and that you were so happy with all aspects of the hotel. It is great that you were able to take advantage of the hotel amenities as well as experience some attractions and restaurants in the city! We will be sure to pass along your kind words to the staff about the shuttle drivers and food in the restaurant. A tip for the future – we do offer some packages that include breakfast with your stay so you might want to inquire about that the next time you make reservations! Looking forward to your next stay at The DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Boston – Cambridge!

Accommodations and staff at the hotel were fine. The shuttle bus to the aquarium was very convenient since you did not have to drive in Downtown Boston which can be a nightmare. However, next time I will request a higher floor since the noise from the lobby bar was very loud until 2 AM!!!

Thank you for your review – we are happy to see that you enjoyed the accommodations and were able to take advantage of the complimentary shuttle to the Aquarium! Requesting a higher floor would definitely be ideal for any future stays to eliminate the noise you hear throughout the night. We look forward to your return!

We had initially booked the Hampton inn cambridge and changed to this hotel based on better location. I'm so glad we did. Hotel shuttle service into the city goes 3 locations throughout the day with lots of drop off and pick up times. I was worried that we needed to stay in downtown to see the sites, but that wasn't the case; we even canceled our last 2 nights in downown to stay here instead. Had beautiful view of the river ; gorgeous sunrises and great breakfast that has basic hotel variety. As a hilton honors member they provided us breakfast coupons which was a plus. Has Coin laundry which was nice since we were traveling 8 days and were able to wash things. Whole foods and trader joes are both within a 5-10 minute walk. Several rental car places are close too. Very safe area. Lots of cabs waiting to take you anywhere if needed and The central stop on red line for the "T" subway is a 15 minute walk down the street, which we used coming into town from the amtrak. Beds were comfy and the fold out sofa my kids slept on was a newer futon style deign which was quite comfortable with no springs ticking out. The fridge and microwave made it nice. The separated bedroom fom the dining area was great too. Would stay here again in a heart beat.

Room Tip: High rooms facing the river have great views of downtown and sunrise over the river.

Two things are responsible for my opinion. First the tub was half-clogged BOTH days. That means that either the maid did not report the problem or maintenance didn't fix it.. Either is not something you expect in a $300-a-night hotel. And second you hang your towel so that it does not get washed, but they wash it anyway...

Although this hotel is somewhat expensive the location if you are visiting the Harvard area is worth it. The shuttle from the hotel to Harvard Square makes it easy to visit there or get public transportation to other parts of Boston.
