I've stayed at many Embassy Suites and this was one of best experiences. Location perfect for Boston area trips. Check in and rooms great - I needed 2 and they automatically put them next to one another - very clean. Levi at the desk extremely professional friendly. Free Breakfast totally good. I would absolutely stay here again.

never ever stay in Embassy suite, even if its free. we found the location to be filthy and smell was awful. I am surprised that Hilton is running such an accommodation. Nearby Westin Hotel provided the best with their friendly staff and the most clean room you could expect and even less expensive than Embassy suite.

We stayed at this hotel for just one night. The room was great! Very clean and comfortable! Staff was very friendly. Restaurant and bar was nice and food was delicious. Morning breakfast was busy, they ran out of utensils and we had to use plastic but it was still good. Fitness room (and pool) was a little difficult to find...

Embassy suites has always been one of our favorite hotels and this one offered a great deal during peak season while using the Hhonors app. Direct booking with up to 24 hour cancellation without penalty cause life happens and I have certainly had life happen before and lost 50% of my money so I try to direct book at hotels...

Our go-to hotel for our frequent family and business trips to the Boston area. Located on 128 this hotel is 20 minutes from Cambridge, downtown or almost anywhere in the Boston area. Embassy rooms look the same system-wide and offer suites with lots of space and amenities. The breakfast and managers reception are nice additions, easy parking and often pretty...

Unlike some suites this one gets my vote because it has a pool and a modern exercise gym which is open 24x7. It is slightly dated internally but you still get the suite experience which to me is preferable to a hotel room. Breakfast was adequate for most business travellers

This place is great IF you are a large family with noisy, out of control, kids. Anyone else should stay away. The "free breakfast" has the atmosphere of an overcrowded, understaffed public grade school cafeteria, on a day when the student population unexpectedly tripled in size and half the staff didn't show up. Again: unless you have a large noisy...

My family stayed here for several nights while we were visiting colleges with our son. Clean, comfortable and roomy. Large bathroom with lots of counter and shelf space, good toiletries, and large towels. Fridge, microwave and coffeemaker in the suite. Excellent breakfast with many choices. Only drawback was poor WiFi in the bedroom. Will definitely return.
