Great stay, good price, but doesn't mention hidden fees

The only issue is for fees, which aren't taken into consideration. For example, I think parking was $30-40 per night. Other than that, great place with a great location

Poor offers to the customers. No notification of privacy disturbaces

The hotel only has two restaurants. Both were, at least, one day closed only for private event during my visit there. The first day I tried to request a room service meal it was not a menu; so, I had to phoned twice to obtain one. Finally, one day, exiting the bathroom I had on my window two men cleaning it. It could be my wife exiting nude the bathroom. Those men were doing noise there by two days, impending me to study in my room. The objective of this travel was to attend a course there.

Stay in Cambridge

Pleasant Stay nice rooms. Television did not pick up local stations although cable stations and movies were available. Air conditioner worked although it barely kept room cool. Located near Science Museum, shops, and restaurants.

Beautiful View

The view was absolutely beautiful. You could see the entire city of Boston. The location was ideal being just a short walk to the city, or a very inexpensive cab drive. There were also beautiful sites to see and things to do in Cambridge as well. Ideal location, highly recommended.

Not Recommended

Lighting in room poor and wall controls non trivial. Breakfast expensive and not included. Bed too small for tall people. Long walk to MIT.
