"Great and seamless experience"
I came for some educational program to Boston and was at this hotel. Very quick check-in and check-out. Good and quick service, polite staff. Centrally located. Rooms are fine and spacious. Efficient! Didn't try the food though. Recommended.
"Modern hotel on MIT campus."
We stayed in a suite for a weekend. The hotel is conveniently located right in the middle of the MIT campus. The vibe is very modern Scandinavian, with lots of glass and light wood. Our suite was smaller than we had expected, at 550 square feet, but it was very attractively furnished. The bathroom fixtures were kinda artsy and quirky, and took some getting used to. We wish it had a swimming pool. We really liked the Sidney Grille restaurant on-site. Parking was very pricey at $35/night, but the hotel is right in the middle of MIT, so it's convenient for visiting friends on campus.
"Centrally placed in Central Square Cambridge"
Typical corporate hotel. All the elements are fine; nothing extraordinary. Clean. Nice shampoo and body wash. The bed was more comfortable than average; moderately firm. Did not use the wifi or the cable, so no comment. No swimming pool. Very convenient to MIT and Central Square. Staff were very polite and helpful. Hotels are so expensive in the Boston/Cambridge area that it is hard for me to whip up enthusiasm for a hotel which is just okay. My rating system: 5* = fantastic/wow; 4* = good; 3* = acceptable; 2* = avoid unless desperate; 1* = avoid even if desperate.
I recently stayed at the Le Meridien for work and was happy with my stay. The location couldn't be better as it was within walking distance of my meetings. The room was clean and bathroom had everything I needed. I actually really liked the shampoo and conditioner that was provided. (Peppermint shampoo and Cilantro conditioner' Pretty cool!) The bed was very firm, but I slept well and have no complaints. We ate dinner one night in the lobby bar, and the burger was actually pretty good. The rooms are undergoing upgrades currently, so I'm sure everything will only get even better. I'd be happy to stay again.
We arrived after a long day of traveling in snowy conditions, to a wonderful young lady at the front desk, I do not recall her name but it was Sunday 1/8/17 around 5 pm. She checked us in right of the bat, she did not even mention she was an angel and gave us an upgrade. The young man behind the bar was excellent, he made the most perfect Cosmopolitan I have ever had, the Deviled Eggs were fantastic, so was the flatbread pizza they served, their hummus not sure if it is made in house, it reminded me of a wonderful pate I have not had since I was a child and was just as delicious. Just shows that a menu with small plates can give you a fantastic experience. I forgot my phone at the bar and before I even noticed it, it was back in my hands. Back to the room, it was wonderful, the headboards are amazing, the beds are the most comfortable beds I have ever had the pleasure of sleeping in. We had a couch in the room with a beautiful overhanging lamp, and a bathroom with amazing water pressure. The lobby was wonderful and clean, and the Valet man was so welcoming. This is the most upscale and up to date property I have stayed and, and let me tell you they are doing it right on point. The late night menu after a night out was also just as wonderful, they did not have the chicken, so we went with the lobster roll, which let me tell you was fantastic. They are doing it well and right, thank you to all the team members and I hope that your managers share this review with you. Thank you for making our trip so wonderful and so special. Again, this is why I choose to stay with the Starwood brand, keep doing what your doing, and I hope Marriott is able to take lessons from this culture and instate it through its entire brand. You guys rock and I will see you on my next trip to Boston very soon. Thanks again for everything you guys did.
