Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TNTnMN Close to couple T-Stops and Mall
We stayed here to avoid the high prices of being Downtown, Back Bay, or in Harvard Square. We spent 4 days as tourists in Boston covering the usual sites -- Freedom Trail, Duck Rides, Harvard, Fenway, Trinity Church, Prudential Bldg, Blue Man Group, and 4th of July fireworks w/Boston Pops. The site proved a good place to based as we used it to get to Green and Red "T"-line easily. For some context, I am a platinum IHG member and stay at a lot of HI properties. This one is meets their standards.
This location is about $30 cab ride from Logan Airport, little less than 10 minute walk from Lechmere #Green Line#, 15 minutes to Science Museum, and a good 15+ minute walk from Kenmore Square #Red Line#. It has a McDonald's next to it; and is about a 10 minute walk to a full-fledged mall. The neighborhoods around it are nice; and there are alot of condos being built on the otherside of the road from it.
Our dbl queen room had a fridge and microwave and was pretty standard HI Express fare. Same for breakfast #cinnamon rolls, toast/bagels, eggs, saugage/bacon, cereal, pancakes, COFFEE!#. . The breakfast room is a little cramped, but is well-served by the staff who try very hard. the business center is right by elevator and abilty to print show/game tickets worked quite nicely.
Only knock was the elevator can be a little slow during peak times #9-10am#. I understand parking is free #we didn't use it# -- looked very crowded given such a good deal.
All and all - glad to have been here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ilovenickolas You would be a fool to stay in downtown Boston - Stay here!
Amazing hotel. Amazing breakfast and free parking is pretty much non-existant at any other hotels in Boston. Really close to a bus station (but I had my own car, so didnt need to use it) Super close to everything you would need to go to (7 min drive to TD gardens)
Can't reccomend it enough.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RGZ CPA Very good stay
The Holiday Inn Express Cambridge met my expectations for a nice quiet clean stay.
The hotel staff was friendly and positive.
I would stay there again.
