The top five things to love about the new AC Hotel in Cambridge are:
#1 Beds are heavenly (Kevin, the marvelous, outgoing individual at the front desk told them you can even buy the mattress and sheets online for your own home at marriott.com!)
#2 Staff is very attentive and sweet. Shout out to Zac, Kevin, Utab (waiter for the delicious European-style, expensive breakfast service) and Artem, who tried very hard to make up for an unexpected room switch we had to do mid-stay.)
#3 Modern and sleek, the shower in the bathroom was paradise with both adjustable and rain shower heads. (No bathtubs though and the bathroom, because it's minimalist with very little counter-space needs more hooks for towels and bathrobe.)
#4 It's sparkling clean and its decor has an artsy European feel.
#5 It's a good value for the cost. There was even a microwave on every floor so you could warm up leftovers, making it a bit more family-friendly which was a plus.
Areas for improvement: there is very little in the way of restaurants in walking distance of the hotel. While there is a shuttle, it only will take guests within 3 miles of the property (no deviation from this policy) which won't get you to Harvard Square. Also, request a room facing the courtyard, not the noisy freeway on the other side of the hotel.More
