Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BostonNovice Great Hotel for My Needs
I selected this hotel primarily because it was a 5 minute walk to the subway / bus station and I wanted access to diffrent areas of Boston and watch a game at Fenway Park. That worked out real well. The hotel itself looks fairly new. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. Lobby was small and had some A/C problems. Staff was excellent -- very helpful in all areas. Only down side (minor) was its location in that it was not really close to any restaurants except for a doughnut shop and a McDonalds. But with a short walk to the "T" finding a good place to eat was easy. Breakfast was a little crazy with more people than seats, but the food was very good. I am glad that I made this choice as it was just what I needed for my first time to visit Boston.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John from NY Great location for visiting Boston and great staff.
Stayed here for 2 nights on a short visit to Boston. We were traveling with a baby, so booked a crib for our room. At check-in, we were offered an upgrade to a one bedroom suite even though, I assume, they needed to move the crib from our booked room to the suite. It was great that they were willing to go to the extra effort for us! The staff were very nice, especially Mark and Janelle. They gave us plenty of recommendations and directions.
The one major drawback of the hotel would be the lack of on-site parking. There is an overflow lot nearby but it is across a busy highway and looks like it belongs to a closed motel or auto mechanic. Since we took public transportation everywhere and left our car in the on-site lot, per Mark's recommendation, it wasn't a problem for us.
Overall, we had a great trip. The highlight of our stay was the staff.

This is in Cambridge. Not really close to anything you would be in Boston for, except that it is a 1/3 mile hike to the Lechemere Station on the green line. Or you can try to figure out the bus network which is all around. Does give you a discounted access to Boston.
Hotel is renovated recently and really looks great inside and out.
Service was friendly and up to expectations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by polyiguana excellent room
Room was great. Nice and quiet even though we were a couple of doors down from the elevator. Food selection was reasonable but the meal area can get a little crowded. Hotel tried to accommodate early check-in (a couple of hours early) but could not do so. Refrigerator and microwave is a big plus. Good location within walking distance to shopping centers, supermarkets, and T station with direct service to Boston.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Helpful and friendly staff
I met my grandchildren at the airport and took my grandson for his tour of MIT. I enjoyed staying so close to the airport and was happy to have a helpful staff that gave us helpful directions to our various destinations.

Location is the first attraction of the hotel. Easy to catch subway into Boston, and locations in Cambridge. The staff was very good at giving directions for getting where we wanted to go. Comfortable room and good breakfast.
