                  • Good location near MIT campus and a short distance over the bridge to kenmore square. Great value for the money, nice interior design, less amenities that expected and the front desk staff were particularly helpful and friendly. The room was clean.

                  • Great location adjacent to MIT, friendly staff unloaded our luggage from the cab and just across the river from Boston. Very clean, nice hotel, beautiful building and very disappointing for the price. Good restaurants nearby, excellent Service and the rooms were furnished in quiet.

                    Extremely slow internet connection, no complimentary coffee in the a.

                  • ProxiMITy to Boston is good, the hotel is very new & the interior design is very contemporary and the service was friendly and the building is very nice as well. Thanks to the staff for making the say great, bathroom is fantastic and did I mention, beds are super comfotable.

                    Price somewhat high and comfortable room. Food availability after a certain hour.

                  • The location was great and value for the $$$ was excellent. The $145.00 prepaid rate was very good and staff were friendly. The comfortable bed was fantastic.

                    Price is high, sinks in room poorly designed and water doesn't run away.

                  • The location was good, cabs were always available and public transportation was nearby, room was clean Internet was free anywhere in the hotel. Lobby were friendly, staff were lovely and beds were a bit too firm, could have been more comfortable.

                    The decor was expensive contemporary, we don't care for.

                  • Nice views over cambridge, the taxis are also convenient to order down at the front desk and near the bridge to cross over into Boston. The hotel is very modern and the MIT campus is just a few blocks walk away. Staff are competent and friendly, rooms are big, beds are super comfortable, lcd tv is clear.

                    Definitely a poor value for the price and a hanger for a robe and card encouraging us to enjoy were in the bathroom. The duty manager was extremely rude and unhelpful.

                  • I liked its location and only a few blocks away from the train station. The stay was wonderful, price was reasonable enough for Boston and the halls and lobby were quiet. Staff were very knowledgeable, room was clean and dinner at the restaurant was also good.

                    Excellent atmosphere in the bar restuarant, noisy heating unit and the toilet paper roll hung very low.

                  • The beds were wonderful and we appreciated the central location, the hotel staff were great and help us figure out the subway, justin, at the front desk, was very nice. Room was pure luxury.
