Wrong Location for us.

This hotel is probably good for the business traveler but not for the tourist. Hotel Shuttle Van routes cater to business traveler. We were not there on business so it was not the best location choice for us. Cab into Boston $50.

Comfy and Convenient in Cambridge

The Best Western Hotel Tria is conveniently located and perfect for business travel. It's walking distance from the T, restaurants, shops and my corporate office, so me it's an ideal choice. The rooms are large and comfortable and the staff is friendly.

Nice people, location ok

Really nice staff, clean rooms, etc. But, it's a bit of a walk to the subway, and there aren't that many other places around it.

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!

Worst experience

I booked two rooms specifically requesting two double beds in each room for two nights. When I checked in, the hotel only gave me the rooms with only one bed. The reason the hotel gave me was because I made reservation through other website. It looked like that I got punished because I did not book my hotel directly.

Great location

We spent most of our time in downtown Boston. The hotel was right off the T and their schuttle service filled in the difference. Saved lots of time and money using this hotel and the T.
