The room was okay, nothing great. 2 double beds, a desk & chair and tv/dresser. There isn’t any “chair” to sit if you want to relax and read a book. You have to sit on the bed. For the cost, it should have been better. Housekeeping was a joke. I don't think they vacuumed the 4 days we were there. We were never given new water glasses although it was quite obvious we wanted them. Sheets were never changed, bed made sloppy. (although there is a sign requesting if you want towels and sheets changed, to contact the front desk) Again, for the cost of the room, that should be a given. There is nothing within close proximity – for people who cannot walk far distances, or who have young children, a cab in necessary. The shuttle the hotel offers isn’t always available and they stop service at 6pm. Parking in their garage is $35/night. Internet is $12.95/day. There are better choices of hotels in the area. The buffet breakfast was mediocre, nothing special. Very expensive - $19.99+ per person. Every employee, except one I encountered at the hotel was very friendly. The “concierge” was of no help in advising on where to grab a bite to eat, sites to visit nearby etc… I do have to say the hotel lobby itself was very clean, it is too bad they do not update the rooms, very old. Holes in ceiling with an awful attempt to cover it.
Boston itself is impressive. I would never again stay in Cambridge. My last visit to Boston, I stayed at the Copley and it was within walking distance of anything and everything imaginable.
