Just Average

This hotel appears to be trying to make it seem more modern, but it's just an old hotel that had a minor facelift. Perhaps this is just an expensive area, but I thought it was a little overpriced for what you were getting. The shuttle to Harvard Square and other local stops was very convenient though!

Recently renovated hotel

Good overall experience. Good location in Cambridge. Within walking distance to the T (i.e. the subway, Alewife station). I was told it's not in the best part of town, but I didn't experience any problems or feel unsafe. Close to a number of stores including a supermarket (just in case you need anything). The rooms have just been renovated. They're very nice. Great continental breakfast in a spacious dining room. There's a Starbucks connected to the hotel. Friendly staff. Small workout room, but there is a 2.5 mile walking/running/biking trial that will take you around the local reservoir (beautiful view) less than a quarter mile away. The only thing missing is a big pool to go swimming in.

Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

There are so many great places to visit in Boston. As long as you have easy access to the subway you can just about go anywhere.

If there's nothing else...

The hotel was ok, the room was comfortable but the location was not great if you plan to spend time in Boston vs. Cambridge. It's probably better suited for a family that could utilize the indoor pool and breakfast area. It's located fairly close to a subway stop, which is a good thing because the wait for their shuttle is 30min. or more. Overall I would say if you don't mind being outside the city and not near any 'hot spots' it's a reasonable selection...

Convient, pleasant - motel, actually, upgraded to hotel like quality.

It was the worst located room in the hotel. It was next to the ice machine, which was loud, and the window was completely blocked with a neon sign. The interior of the room was satisfactory, and I was tired, so the noise from the ice machine was not a big issue. Also the hotel was completely booked, so I had no opportunity to change rooms.
