Nice hotel near MIT

Experience was very good. Nice hotel. Seemed expensive for the nice but standard room, but I made the reservation late and it may have been a busy night.

Beautiful and great location

This hotel was very clean and comfortable. If you are visiting MIT or Boston, the location is great. Service was very friendly. It is pricey, but worth it if the location is very important.

If your going to see the city. Get a city pass. Around 55 dollars and you can see most everything for the one price.

Nice hotel.

I've seen a good number of hotels, and you get what you pay for. This one is very clean, the staff is professional, and it's in a good location. If you don't mind walking a bit, Fenway is within a reasonable distance, as are most of the area's attractions. Breakfast is a bit steep (20 bucks), so I'd recommend hitting up the breakfast joint a couple of blocks down from the hotel across from the entrance to The Middle East (basement venue). Sorry, can't remember the name - but bring cash, because they don't take plastic. If I could change anything else besides the cost of the breakfast, it would be to have a fridge in the room.

Very comfortable hotel!

My wife, son and I spent two nights at the Le Meridien in Cambridge in June 2014. The hotel has a great, central location, friendly staff, rooms are very quiet, and the hotel is an excellent value. The room and bed were quite comfortable. The hotel has a modern, contemporary feel.

Convenient and attractive

Close to MIT and tech/biotech cluster @ Kendall. No in-room coffee - I do wish it had been made clear that there was coffee available in the lobby prior to the restaurant opening at 6:30.

Clean and modern hotel in great Central area

Great hotel, conveniently located in central square, but closer to MIT. Great for people visiting MIT especially. Great area to stay as Central has definitely been developed more over the past couple years. Very vibrant area with loads of cute coffee shops and bars. The hotel itself was clean, modern, and affordable. Only negative thing was that the guest in the room below ours was smoking and a little bit of cigarette smoke was permeating from the bathroom. If you're a non-smoker, this could be a problem. Would recommend that the hotel clearly designate smoking and non-smoking wings of the hotel.

Definitely take a trip to the new H-mart if you're a fan of asian food! Great in store dining area, serving teas, lattes, Sapporo Ramen noodles, and japanese curry dishes.

Close to everything!

The room was extremely clean. We enjoyed how close you are to great restaurants and great nightlife. It is also within walking distance to Fenway Park if you are a baseball fan. Overall we had a great time and would definitely stay there again.
