We stayed here with our kids ages 12, 9, and 7 with 2 queen beds and a roll-away bed. The hotel is modern and has friendly staff. It's near the red subway line which was convenient for sight-seeing. The hotel was quiet at night and our room had a lovely view of the sea. There was some hair in the... More

We traveled to Boston many times but this has to be the most convenient location we have ever stayed at. The Subway stop Kendall right at the entrance of the hotel. The valets and front desk staff were very accommodating. Our room on the 20 th floor looked out over the Charles and Boston. The concierge was awesome in directing... More

We spent our 51st Anniversary night at this hotel. We had an excellent room with a view of their back garage rooftop garden. Service was excellent and they sent us a complimentary bottle of champagne and an excellent cheese plate with assorted cheeses and crackers, fruits, nuts, and preserves. Bed was very comfortable.

Rooms are clean, staff is fine, food is okay. This is a good but not memorable or impressive property. The price seemed high for a property that is just "good", but that may have more to do with the location than anything.

Dear MNwanderers – Thank you for your honest response. Our location and offerings do make us an attractive and high demand location for travelers coming to the Boston/Cambridge.

I'm an MIT student and stay in this hotel 2 night every 2-3 weeks. The best way to describe this hotel is that it will meet your reasonable expectations but will not impress you.

I've stayed here a few nights over the past few months for business and I am always really happy with the check in process, and the check out process.

I have stayed here several times before and always seem to return. I like that this location is quieter than in midtown. It's just steps to the Kendall Square Red Line T which is perfect for getting around. The hotel's recent renovation is very hip, well wired and fitting for a hotel located at MIT.
