Welll located Cambridge hotel. The staff is excellent. They were proactive reaching out to understand our needs before arrival and equally attentive once checked in. Easy commute to MIT and Harvard. The gym and lobby level are quite good. They have a morning coffee station set up in the lobby with local and national newspapers. Parking is convienet and worth...

I wasn't too impressed with the hotel especially since I had high expectations considering this is a Meridien, a high end brand. Housekeeping was a disappoint based on how the bed was made. The restaurant waiters didn't appear to be well informed of the menu. This hotel was certainly overpriced when you see that it is in a neighborhood that...

We enjoyed our stay here. It's modern and well decorated. The is nice and quiet, with a distinct purple backlight wall. They were playing a Christmas movie instead of the news or sports which I thought was pretty fun. The staff was friendly and the guy downstairs always said hello to my dog which was pretty nice. It's a 25...

We spent a couple of nights here while visiting the area. Centrally located between MIT and Harvard and just a short walk to a variety of cafes and restaurants. The room was fine, although the bathroom was in need of a little brightening up, the bed was comfortable and the set up of the room spacious. The view from our...

I came for some educational program to Boston and was at this hotel. Very quick check-in and check-out. Good and quick service, polite staff. Centrally located. Rooms are fine and spacious. Efficient! Didn't try the food though. Recommended.

We stayed in a suite for a weekend. The hotel is conveniently located right in the middle of the MIT campus. The vibe is very modern Scandinavian, with lots of glass and light wood. Our suite was smaller than we had expected, at 550 square feet, but it was very attractively furnished. The bathroom fixtures were kinda artsy and quirky,...

Typical corporate hotel. All the elements are fine; nothing extraordinary. Clean. Nice shampoo and body wash. The bed was more comfortable than average; moderately firm. Did not use the wifi or the cable, so no comment. No swimming pool. Very convenient to MIT and Central Square. Staff were very polite and helpful. Hotels are so expensive in the Boston/Cambridge area...

I recently stayed at the Le Meridien for work and was happy with my stay. The location couldn't be better as it was within walking distance of my meetings. The room was clean and bathroom had everything I needed. I actually really liked the shampoo and conditioner that was provided. (Peppermint shampoo and Cilantro conditioner? Pretty cool!) The bed was...

We arrived after a long day of traveling in snowy conditions, to a wonderful young lady at the front desk, I do not recall her name but it was Sunday 1/8/17 around 5 pm. She checked us in right of the bat, she did not even mention she was an angel and gave us an upgrade. The young man behind...

Well, this was a wonderful find for Cambridge. If you pay ahead, you can get a great rate. There's a huge supermarket on the 2nd floor. We got caught in a snow storm. Getting snacks at the market and watching movies made the weekend fun. The room was spacious and comfortable. Staff is super friendly and helpful. We will definitely...
