Location location!

Perfectly situated to walk to public transit or shopping. The in house left much to be desired in terms of food, and the staff was a bit rude . Loved my room and the view. There is no fridge in the room! It is cool enough for liquids but nothing else- which is ridiculous. So no bringing left-overs back to your room.

Perfect Night Away from NY

In Cambridge for a wedding, hotel could not have been any more convenient. Great view of the Charles River from the room, Art Bar and Dante restaurant. Room was in perfect condition upon arrival, hotel staff allowed us to check-in early and was as pleasant as we've ever experienced. WIll stay there again when we return to Boston soon.

Nice location

I was in and out, so not much time other than sleeping! Hotel staff was nice, bed was great! I got a River view room. The view Alpine was worth the price of the room!

Excellent!

For a tourist couple it is a perfect hotel. Although it is "in the other side of the river" from most of the typical sightseeing locations, Boston is a place where walking or biking is always a pleasure and, after all, almost everything is at walking distance...

Absolutely wonderful!

This was my first stay at the hotel. Location was ideal for me; I'll stay there again in future visits to Cambridge. I was greeted in a friendly manner; freshly made ginger and chocolate chip cookies were exactly what I needed when I arrived! I also utilized the business center printer to print a short document. At least one of the computers was down; they should all be up and running. The printer worked fine for my purpose. About the only thing that I thought was over-priced was the Italian restaurant at the hotel.

Great but pricey

Overall, great with convenient locale. Expensive for me -- but very helpful staff. If it's within your budget, don't hesitate to stay here.
