We love to stay at this hotel for the convenience, location, and beautiful views. There is parking onsite (although expensive), but allows in/out throughout the day. Most of the hotels in Boston charge for parking, so that is an expense you just have to expect. The fitness room and pool are amazing!!! It is a full sized pool for lap...

Excellent staff, restaurant and location for Cambridge and Boston. A very efficient free shuttle to Harvard Square. Staff very accommodating with requests. Apart from a walk on the riverbank, a cab or free shuttle have to be taken to Harvard Square, where the convenient Train can be taken.

The hotel is well positioned over the river from Boston in Cambridge so-called, between MIT & Harvard. There is an efficient courtesy bus service which serves local highlights and a Tube station from which it is easy to reach Boston itself. With its massive atrium-style interior and visible lift-shafts the hotel has a very 1970s feel. Rooms are clean and...

Poor location. Not easy to walk to anything within a reasonable distance. The hotel shuttle has poor hours of operation. The overall hotel needs updating. I expected much more for the price and from the Hyatt name. The room was overall good, and clean and bed was comfortable. However, the refrigerator was missing and you need to request one if...

The room, the staff and the view of the Charles are all fantastic! It is the perfect location for walking over the bridge to Boston or staying in Cambridge to explore Harvard & MIT. The room was wonderful and clean, the breakfast buffet was delicious and the staff was courteous and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

The Egyptians built the pyramids faster than this hotel is completing repair of a one-story escalator between the first and second floors (November 2015). Meanwhile, with no appropriate signage, guests exiting the elevators encounter inexplicable rope barriers limiting access to the front desk.

Hotel is above average. It is very convenient if you are working with MIT or visiting the IS&T department at MIT. Don't like waiting for the elevators and the food service has limited times for room service. Food service is inconsistent. Prices are expensive, but lower than other nearby properties.
