FABULOUS LOCATION

It was in an excellent location across from the Cambridge Side Mall. The amenities were great and they had attended to any needs.

Very friendly service

Given an upgrade without even asking. Found the room to be a bit small but an amazing view. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Would stay there again in a heart beat!

Small room but great view

Cons: Tiny shower and bathroom Thin window shades did a lousy job of blocking the sun in the morning. We couldn't sleep in past 6am No complimentary continental breakfast or coffee Pros: Incredible view of Boston Great location-walkable to Boston and access to multiple T stations Hot tub

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Unless you pay extra to include continental breakfast in your package, you will not get one. You must walk across the street to the galleria mall (restaurants have longer hours than the other stores in the mall). This includes Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts and Au Bon Pain.

Expensive

Nice rooms although somewhat small, nice view of Boston, nice friendly service, good on site restaurant at The Art Bar. Close (walking distance)to Museum of Science and the TD Garden. Great mall across the street. Great local Breakfast spot, Christines, around the corner from Best Buy. I felt I had paid more than most for the rooms at $215/night plus $27 parking per night. Not a great package price. Would go back in the 125 - 150 dollar per night range.

Hotel was fine, but they had difficulty

The hotel and help were great - they had trouble with the reservation and [...]and their computers or reservation did not talk - thus, it was difficult to get our room. They did not know I had the reservation and for some reason at first my credit card did not work - I didn't understand that, since I pay in full each month. So hotel was beautiful, pleasant and employees very nice and professional. [...]and the hotel somehow did not talk - and it made it uncomfortable for me for awhile, until it got sorted out. Pricing was very good - thank you - !
