Nice Hotel in Cambridge, but close to downtown

Posted Jul 21, 2015
Pros: Trolley station in two blocks. Large amounts of good restaurants in a walking distance.
Cons: The free parking is very small and crowded, and continental breakfast is good, but don't provide big choice of foods.
Location: The hotel's location is very easy to reach for out-of-towners and is very close for many attractions.
Nice Hotel in Cambridge, but also close to downtown Boston. Hotel is very clean and comfortable. The free parking is very small and crowded, and continental breakfast is good, but don't provide big choice of foods.

Preis-Leistung schlecht, abgewohnt

Posted Jul 17, 2015
Das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis ist unangemessen. Auch wenn die umliegenden Hotels in Cambridge etwas teurer sind, kann man das Holiday Inn nicht empfehlen. Die Badezimmer sind alt, die Aufzüge unterdimensioniert und die Zimmer nicht richtig sauber. Die Lage ist praktisch, aber nicht schön. U-Bahn in Laufweite, MIT ca. 15 Minuten fussläufig. Das Hotel liegt am Highway.

Zentrales und gepflegtes Haus

Posted Jul 6, 2015
Frühstück ordentlich und wie das parken auch inklusive. Gemütliche Betten und relativ ruhig. Leider nicht so gute öffentliche Verkehrsmittel-Anbindung aber in 30min ist man zu Fuß in der City.

Imagine Dragons, TD Garden

Posted Jul 3, 2015
Pros: Clean, helpful at midnight check-in, great room, comfortable bed, help w/ transportation to airport next morning, kind staff.
Cons: Fix the air-conditioning at the front desk area. Have a system (timed perhaps) for breakfast? At least someone there to direct traffic?
Location: I came, I saw/worked the Imagine Dragons concert @ TDGarden for the Tyler Robinson Foundation, I slept, I flew home.
Checked in after midnight due to work; Dina (front desk) was wonderful, kind, accommodating. Room was really nice, slept like a log, great shower, nice products...asthetically pleasing furnishings. Wireless a bit tiresome. Breakfast (at 8 a.m.) was jammed and running out of coffee, couldn't even get near the food for the crowd. Appreciated the sharing of the cab with a handsome gentleman from Jacksonville who was headed to the financial district: I am just realizing I probably got taken (again) by the cabby who then dropped me off the airport, as I never asked if the gentlemen had paid for the entire ride, which I am sure he did. Never does a good deed go unpunished. Shame. Hotel was great, close to airport, staff very accommodating, especially under dire circumstances (no air conditioning in lobby/front desk area). Thank you.

Comfortable hotel

Posted Jun 29, 2015
Pros: It was very comfortable with spacious rooms and the breakfast was adequate. It was in a good spot to travel to various locations around Boston.
Cons: Notices could be put inside the lifts and on each floor reminding guests to be quiet after midnight.
Location: The location was very good. It was about $15 dollars for a taxi to get into Boston and a similar price to go to Harvard.
This hotel was very comfortable and spacious. The young man who checked us in was extremely helpful. The breakfast was adequate with good food to suit everyone. We had free wifi and on two of the days we had free iced bottled water to take out as well as a container filled with iced tap water with slices of orange in it which was available in the foyer throughout the day, but for some unknown reason, on our last day the bottled water had disappeared and when I asked the older gentleman on reception why it wasn't there, he quite 'bluntly' told me that I could buy the bottled water! I just wondered why it was free on specific days and not on others! We stayed 3 nights and on the 2nd and 3rd nights we were woken between midnight and 2.30am by people in the next room and across the corridor talking loudly and banging their doors!

Sehr schönes Hotel für einen Boston-Trip

Posted Jun 6, 2015
Pros: Parkplätze im Preis enthalten
Location: Camebridge, mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln 10 Minuten zur Bostoner Innenstadt, darüberhinaus in rd. 10 Minuten zum Campus der Harvard University
Ein sehr schönes Hotel für einen Boston-Trip. In wenigen Gehminuten ist man an der T-Station "Lechmere", welche einen in nur 10 Minuten direkt zum Boston Common und damit dem Ausgangspunkt des "Freedom Trail" bringt. Unser Zimmer war sowohl von der Größe und Ausstattung her, als auch in Bezug auf die Sauberkeit sehr gut. Auch das Personal war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Riesenvorteil des Hotels ist m.E. der hoteleigene Parkplatz, welcher im Preis enthalten ist. Besonders freundlich fanden wir, dass wir unser Auto am Tag unseres Check-Out noch auf dem Parkplatz stehen lassen konnten (ohne Zusatzkosten) und somit die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel zur Erkundung der Stadt nutzen konnten. Insgesamt absolut empfehlenswert.

Nettes, zweckmässiges Hotel in Boston

Posted Jun 3, 2015
Cons: Hatten ein Dreibettzimmer avisiert, aber davon wusste das Personal nichts. War aber für das Personal kein Problem, wir bekamen ein passendes.
Location: Mit dem öffentlichen Verkehrsanbindungen kann man schnell zu allen Sehenswürdigkeiten.
Eine gute Anbindung an das öffentliche Verkehrsnetz und damit ein Katzensprung in die City sind sehr vorteilhaft. In der Nähe sind noch etliche Hotelkomplexe. Die Nähere Umgebung ist nicht nach meinem Geschmack aber ein Einkaufszentrum ist fussläufig erreichbar. Frühstück gibts ausschliesslich von Papptellern und Plastikbechern was wahrscheinlich in USA normaler ist als bei uns. Personal war nett und hilfsbereit....alles in allem wars o.k. für uns.

It was OK, a typical hotel. But the hot breakfast was great and the best part of the stay!
