Doesnt look too fancy from the outside but it is really,really something. Excellent staff, very helpful and polite. Bambara is a great place to have your breakfast, a snack or dinner. The winehour which is complimentary is a great ting to make guests come together. Even if I didnt bring my own dog I love that its a dogfriendly hotel....

Our room was very clean & comfortable, as were all areas of the hotel. We now call it the 'dog hotel' because dog owners are...

Kimpton hotels always impress me. This hotel is as great as the other kimpton hotels. They helped us get reservations for a duck tour, they had knacks which we took out . They are always friendly to our dog. If you are in Cambridge this is the place to go.

and it is still a very nice, friendly, quiet and reasonably well located Hotel. The rooms appear to have been refreshed and I was price was surprisingly good. Traveling for business I am often forced to stay in chains, mainly Hilton, and while they're not bad, Kimpton is almost always better.

Excellent staff and customer service, newly renovated, upscale, solid restaurant and bar, good location, kayaks, bikes, and a goldfish pet for my son to take care of "James" named after James Taylor, you know, you've got a friend. Did I mention family friendly? Love this place.
