I stayed in this hotel on my own in November 2018. The location is fair - very close to the nearest metro station just one block away (green line) - although it is by no means close to Boston center (the hotel is in Cambridge indeed). I decided to take long walks instead, and on average it took me 30-35 mins to get to Boston center on foot. Pretty close to the MIT (15 mins on foot). That said, the hotel appears and actually is very nice. Tidy and clean as anyone would expect, rooms are spacious and well furnished. Beds were comfy in my opinion and even though my room faced the street below, I did not hear anything at all. I particularly appreciated the complimentary breakfast, which was large enough. Staff was friendly and ready to help. I had a really pleasant stay. At last, quality to price ratio was very good in my opinion. Highly recommended overall.

The Fairfield Inn & Suites at Boston Cambridge is well located close to MIT and a short train ride to the centre of Boston. There is a supermarket next door and restaurants within walking distance, while the hotel also does serve meals.

The hotel was very nice, well located because there is a T station just 5 minutes walking from the hotel and it takes you to the city center in 15 minutes. Also, there is a shopping mall 10 minutes walking. The rooms aren't too big, but have everything you need, beds are comfortable, the bathroom is nice and clean. Minibar and microwave. Closet is tiny. Breakfast is good, and the ladies are very helpful. The hotel does not have restaurant, but they do have a bar. Front desk staff, some of them very friendly and helpful, some others not that much. Lack of communication, they charged us the room twice, and we had to complain a few times before it was refunded. Aside from that, all good.

A perfect stay at a clean hotel! Upon checking in, Laura helped answer every question we had. She helped us with parking, transportation and even recommendations for entertainment. The room was very clean and provided everything we needed. The train station is located only 2 blocks away. I can't say enough great things about Laura at the front desk. We stayed for 3 nights and she was there to help us for every question we had. We were visiting MIT and will be back for sure!

This hotel was lovely! The room was clean and really nice and the hotel itself is not far from all the Boston hustle and bustle. The staff was extremely friendly, every time I walked past they smiled and greeted me, coming from a hotel background I really appreciated this! You can tell there is excellent management here.

Nice clean hotel just outside of the main hub of Boston. Check in was quick and easy, room was large clean and comfortable. Lacked a personal safe in the room which was a drawback. Breakfast was included in the price and sufficient before a day touring. My room was facing the road but the windows were well soundproofed. Heating and cooling in the room was good. Bathroom had a great shower. Distance into the city took about 30 minutes to walk or there is a train station nearby. Uber is available and the best option.

I spent nearly 2 weeks here and it has been wonderful! Great location for easy access to all the key areas in the city. Lovely room, well serviced by the great house keeping team. Special thanks go to Ryan on the front desk, he thought of everything I needed even before I had to ask! And thank you also to Tai and Emile on the bar. I look forward very much to staying here again very soon.

Can’t think of anything negative to say. Visited from Canada October 2018 on firm retreat. 2 rooms 4 nights. Great location (near T), great rooms, great breakfast, great staff. Worth premium rate we paid.

Nothing but good things to say about this Fairfield Inn. The service and the rooms were great and the location was close to everywhere we needed to be on this trip. Guess that’s why the cost of the room was stupid expensive.

Located in East Cambridge, this hotel offers Fairfield Inn quality lodging at a good price for the Boston area. Comfortable bedding, bright lighting, nice walk-in shower, decent gym for workouts, clean throughout, free hot breakfast, and fee-based parking. The front desk reception team is very friendly and very customer-service-oriented. This hotel is near Cambridgeside Galleria Mall and on the west side crossing Charles River Dam Road to the Massachusetts General Hospital campus.
