Like many other reviewers, I think this Hyatt is past its best days. Part of the problem is the mid-70s architecture involving a closed-interior behind glass, which as well as looking somewhat dated, is at least in part responsible for the whole hotel smelling musty. Balconies are on the interior which echoes with the sounds of the lobby and restaurant, and so are not well used. The 2010 refresh/refit failed to give the place a new lease of life, and everything continues to have the appearance of decayed 60s-70s modernism. My other criticism is that the parking is bleak and expensive ($30/night).
On the plus side, the service is fine, the hotel clean (despite the mustiness) and the views of Boston and the Charles River are spectacular. We were upgraded to one of the University Suites of >1000 sq ft, which may well be the largest we've ever experienced. Location is perfect for visits to MIT, and not terrible for Boston. Value for money was acceptable, as this is not one of the more expensive Hyatts.
