“Great hotel, a little far”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Spent two nights here during a family vacation to Boston. Staff was friendly, rooms were comfortable and spacious and the breakfast was good and reasonably priced. My only criticism is the location of the hotel. If you are sightseeing in Boston, this hotel is a little far from all the sights. The hotel provides a shuttle but the times may not work for you and it gets crowded. The only other option is taxi as there is no public transportation nearby.

We are happy to hear that you stayed at The DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Boston- Cambridge on your recent trip to the city. It is great that you enjoyed your family vacation with our friendly staff and comfy and spacious rooms! Although we are a little outside the heart of the city we try to run our shuttle to Harvard Square, Copley Square, and the Aquarium as often as possible to get our guests where they need to be! We hope to see you again should you be traveling back to the Boston/Cambridge area in the future!

Relatively close to Cambridge, but a distance to Boston. There is a shuttle that will take you to where you'd like to go. Great breakfast and very courteous staff. Rooms are very comfy and spacious; the only awkward thing is that our room had twin beds, so if you're looking for something different, I'm not sure of the availability.

Happy to hear that you had a great quick stay at The DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Boston- Cambridge! It is great that you were able to enjoy breakfast in The Green Room and were able to use our shuttle. We appreciate your tip about our room types (we only offer 1 King bed or 2 Twin beds in our suites) and glad that you found them to be comfy and spacious! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Recently stayed for 4 nights. Hotel is a tad out of the tourist areas but there is a shuttle that goes to most of the main attractions. Wish there was a Fenway shuttle because finding a taxi after the game was a mess but I could imagine getting the shuttle in and out wouldn't be much better. Room was large and spacious for two adults. Living room sofa folded into flat bes which is rare for sleepers. Hot tub and pool was a nice respite during the raining days we experienced.
Restaurants a little pricey as expected but we did pick up some breakfast items and booze at the Whole Foods across the river.
Overall a great stay and friendly staff. Had a bit of an issue trying to pay upfront with cash but worked it out. I mean, what hotel wouldn't want their money upfront? Haha.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone I know but using public transportation is not the best. We walked from the Red T Central stop which was about a mile but it was stormy on the way home so got a town car arranged through the front desk.

Room Tip: You have to pay for a good view but unless your trying to see 4th of July fireworks, any room should...

With the shuttle service, the kind attention of the staff from check-in we felt like special guests at your hotel. The quiet rooms, the warm pool, the fast and always available elevators gave us all the rest we needed after days of riding. Thank you!

Quick two night stay for college visit.
Room was great.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Food was a little pricey on property.
We did not have a car, so we saved $35 to park overnight...that's pretty high if you ask me.
I would recommend this hotel and we will stay there again on our next visit.

Staff was very helpful and extremely professional. The suite had a great view of the Charles River. All questions regarding tours, historic spots, were handled by the staff in a first class effort. The shuttle was very helpful. Would definitely book another stay at the Double Tree, Cambridge-Boston.

The hotel was located in a great location right on the river. The view was great where you can see the downtown area from your room or the beautiful view from the 16th floor rooftop terrace. The staff were very polite and very helpful and were there for your every need. The heated pool was very nice and the jacuzzi was great for resting after all the long walking along the river. The suite was very spacious that came with a fridge and microwave so if you didnt want to eat out you could hit all the local Grocery stores and fill up. The king bed was extra comfortable and the pillows extra fluffy. beautiful river view from my room. Definitely recommend this hotel if you're in the Boston area
