Overall, this hotel was amazing. I gave quite a detailed review prior to this one (on the first day of my stay or so). In a nutshell, other than the bedsheet over the mattress being dirty (which was fixed right away, along with three complimentary breakfast vouchers for the inconvenience), my stay was perfect. Superb amenities (Keurig coffee, Fiji water provided, very clean, very new, lovely architecture, 24 hour new fitness gym w/ hi-tech treadmills), pleasant staff. Right across the street from the Porter red line stop, so ~15 minutes to MIT where I was attending a hackathon. I'm very happy that I picked Hotel 1868 and would definitely stay there again. It's a lovely boutique hotel whose owners and staff seem to care very much about their clientele.

Nice hotel in great location. Friendly staff and good fitness room!

Everything about it was amazing from the Hotel itself the building and the rooms.

Great location, many shops nearby, across the street from rail lines and walking distance to Harvard Square.

Location was just what I needed. One T stop to Harvard Square

Massachusetts Avenue Cambridge MA
