Despite the poor reports on TripAdvisor, I could not say no to an $85 all in price for a Boston room (thanks Hotwire) so I gave the Hyatt a chance.
I have to say I certainly got value for my money. I have no complaints. My room did not appear outdated - in fact, it had a fantastic bed and a bright white bedspread (so you know it is clean). I have included photos. Everything worked fine, was clean and the service was acceptable. If you stay on the third floor, you can avoid the elevators.
If you are a runner, you will appreciate the easy access to the paths along the Charles River. Since you are right next to it, consider taking the free tour of MIT - it was very interesting.
Tip: As mentioned often, the location is isolated with respect to public transit but, instead of walking all the way to the T-station, I recommend you take the number 1 bus on Mass Ave. (service to Harvard Sq. and Downtown Boston) if you can. It is quite a bit closer to the hotel and arrives every 10 minutes or so. You catch it in front of the main MIT building.
