Good value hotel

Posted Apr 16, 2015
Pros: I got into trouble at breakfast as I shouldn't have helped myself to anything from the buffet as I hadordered something off the menu. Stupid rules.
Cons: These rules at breakfast and a better ambience in the restaurant.
Location: There was a good selection of restaurants. I didn't go but there was complementary admission to the MIT museum. Local bus stop was very close.
What I found most pleasing is the room was very very quiet. Couldn't hear any sirens or honking of horns, this is because my room faced away from the road. What was also pleasing was the view of Boston skyline. Great wifi.

Expected better for price

Posted Apr 13, 2015
Cons: Sound proofing
Location: God location and near T.
Pillows smelt but were changed when complained. Toilet flush noisy and could hear flushes from other rooms. Also could hear conversations from rooms next door. Would not stay there again

Worst hotel stay in a while

Posted Apr 6, 2015
Sink is standing bowl style impractical for hotel use. Was slow drain and Fixtures old. Toilet overflowed and it took a while for plumbing and housekeeping to come. We did not ask but were not offered anything for our inconvenience upon checkout. Would not return.

Very nice hotel in the center of Cambridge

Posted Mar 24, 2015
Pros: Staff and location
Cons: add mini fridge and microwave to rooms so we can shop at the grocery store and have/prepare our own food
Location: MIT campus, MIT museum, Mass. avenue restaurants and shops, Charles river
This hotel and staff is excellent. The location just off of Mass Avenue is incredible with a lot of food and shops close by. And for those visiting MIT or MIT students, it is the absolute closest hotel. There's a great grocery store/super market connected to the hotel lobby. The only negative was an issue this time (I've stayed before and it was not an issue) with hot water. We didn't have hot water for about 24 hours. When we complained, they said they already had an engineer on the roof trying to fix it. The next morning, it was, in fact fixed, so certainly, the issue was negative, but their quick response a positive. The fitness center is good with enough equipment for 5 or 6 people to work out at once, but there is no pool. The restaurant is fancy with fancy prices, but it is elegant and people seemed to be enjoying their meals.

OK hotel in Cambridge

Posted Mar 17, 2015
Pros: Staff
Cons: HVAC (noise), soundproofing (hallway noise), decor/room amenities (particularly the bathroom).
Location: MIT Museum around the corner is free with your hotel room key (worth checking out for an hour or two).
The reception staff were very professional and friendly. The room itself was disappointing - very basic, particularly noticeable in the bathroom. Considerable noise was heard from the hall and the HVAC unit every time it turned on.

Dear Andy, Thank you for taking the time to post the feedback concerning your recent stay. I am delighted to hear that you found our staff to be professional and friendly. Please accept my apologies that the room did not meet your expectations and that your HVAC unit was noisy. That is certainly not how we want you to remember our hotel and I will bring it to the attention of our Maintenance team. If you return to Cambridge I would ask that you consider coming back to Le Meridien so we can provide you with a great experience.

Winter Weekend at Le Meridien

Posted Mar 12, 2015
Pros: The comfort, location, and friendly staff
Cons: larger gym
Location: restaurants and MIT beautiful campus
We stayed for two nights during a typically freezing weekend in Boston- we were very happy with the accomodations, the location, and the staff. The beds were warm, comfy, and the bathroom spacious. Loved the big window views too. Used the gym facilities and the restaurant downstairs- all great! Will definitely consider using this hotel in the future.

The pillows were too soft.. More pillows needed to be left on bed due to how soft they were.
