Good hotel with good pool!

Posted Jan 12, 2017
I always stay at this hotel because of the excellent pool. Access to great runs along the river and close to Cambridge. Good breakfast buffet. All in all a good option

Great location but average quality

Posted Jan 10, 2017
Parking is not including and will cost an additional $40. The checkout times are great and the staff is friendly, but the rooms are not quite up to modern standards. Amenities were clean, but it felt more like a budget room placed inside a more upscale exterior. I honestly expected a bit more for the price, and a remodel would greatly improve the experience. The headboard was torn, bathroom had peeling caulking, drawers did not shut correctly and carpet was short pile industrial. Overall, an average experience. Not quite the warm relaxing atmosphere I had expected

Perfect hotel that didn't break the bank but provided a comfortable, safe and fun stay while exploring the city and Cambridge! Will definitely be back!

Generally speaking room was small but satisfactory. The Thermostat did not work so it was very cold. Had to crank it up to over 80. I have had better results in lower rated hotels

Convenient Location

Posted Dec 14, 2016
I have stayed at this hotel several times in the last month while visiting a hospitalized relative. The location convenient, easy to get to and from. The room price was good and the quality of the rooms and service were superior. I was also impressed with the menu in the hotel's restaurant.

Great view, four-star hotel, but...

Posted Dec 13, 2016
Wow, what luxury! Great view of the River and of Boston! Huge room with queen-bed. But...amenities for a cost. $40/ night for garage parking, $6 for computer use plus additional minutes, breakfast at a restaurant, lunch entree costs $18 at Zephyr, etc. Free gym with pool...a must do! Free shuttle service to local subway stops..a must do!

Good service but details a bit sloppy

Posted Dec 12, 2016
Pros: Nice staff, generally comfortable.
Cons: Bathroom fittings old and tired. Had to call front desk to get them to stop a flowing tap.
Location: Location is not great - not near anywhere else much in Cambridge - but they have a decent shuttle to Kendall and Harvard Squares.
Basically a pleasant and good value stay. Nice staff and good buffet breakfast. Location a bit distant from the rest of Cambridge.

Great balcony view across Charles River of Skyline

Posted Dec 12, 2016
Pros: Balcony and view
Cons: Later running shuttle service
Location: Location is close to MIT, about 15 mins walk to the nearest T stop at Kendall/MIT. Shuttle to Kenmore, Harvard, or MIT was much appreciated!
Hotel was located on banks of Charles river close to MIT and with a lovely view of the Boston skyline! Room was decent size and balcony was lovely - if only the weather was warmer!

Nice hotel but not close enough to downtown

Posted Dec 10, 2016
Room service was excellent. Room did not have a couch. The shower drain needs some work done to it
