A nice Cambridge property with all the features of a full-service hotel and wonderful views of the Charles River. It is more reasonably priced than the other nearby hotels, but it is a bit further away from the campus and business districts.

I stayed at this property for 2 nights as a mini excursion from New York to see a different side of Boston within the area, Cambridge. The location is perfect with the train station being a 20 minute walk from the hotel, I was able to experience Cambridge living, and it is also super close to MIT (one subway stop). The hotel offers a lot: shuttle service to Harvard Square, Copley Square, and the aquarium. In addition, a rooftop restaurant called Over the Charles. The waitress named Maria from Colombia was super nice and very attentive! The front desk staff: Sophia (very friendly), Tania (took care of any of our concerns), Derek (checked in on a daily via text message), and the two night auditors (a lady and a man that I did not get their name unfortunately) were all amazing! The cleanliness of the rooms was really good. I would stay here again without a doubt, 10/10 - I recommend!
