"Awesome hotel but no pool"
This hotel was great! Room service was definitely delicious. Location was fabulous for Mit for Harvard not quite as doable. The bedding and the bath was great and it was spotlessly maintained. The parking garage is right next door as well. Only downside in my opinion is the lack of the pool and the basic ness of the fitness facilities. However if price is not a concern you are definitely getting a four star experience.
"The best of the best!"
My son and I have stayed at this hotel so many times I can't remember how many! The hotel is always accommodating and if possible, always upgrades us. We have spent over 20 Christmas and Thanksgiving holidays here over the past years and the hotel is always friendly and the staff goes out of its way to be friendly and accommodating. I want to especially commend the door man whose name I do not know, who always helps me with my luggage whether I am staying there or not; to explain..I often rent a car from the car rental agency adjacent to the hotel. Whether I am staying at the Meridian or not, this wonderful door man helps me..no questions asked, and calls me by name. I always feel welcomed here...great hotel...stay here if you can...
"Nice hotel "
Good stay. Pros: near many pharma companies and at walkable distance. Attached to a large grocery store. Not too far from the airport and in a nice neighborhood of Boston. I didn't venture out to eat but looks like some good choices in the area. Room was comfortable and good size with good views. Nice and good temp control. Slept well. Comfortable bed and bedding. Very clean and well maintained. Good coffee choices with complimentary bottle of water and a bathrobe. Very soft towels and basic toiletries. Good size tv I ate at from hotel restaurant and ordered take out. This way I saved $9 on delivery charge. Meal was good and at good price. Good customer service. Nice welcoming staff. Cons: area was very quiet and no hustle and bustle of Cambridge. It didn't feel like I was a university town. Pricey but it may be expected due to location close to large and small pharma.
"Will always come back"
I have stayed here many times and love it. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. The staff are exceptionally pleasant and professional. The location is perfect for what I want to do in Cambridge. The front lobby has been redone with an excellent bar, and the bartender was very friendly and accommodating. The bellman, Lulzim, has always been indescribably friendly and helpful. I once stayed here with a disabled parent and mother-in-law. He went out of his way to help us with a van that could accommodate their needs. I am always happy to see him because he is so nice!
"College visit "
Great experience. The hotel is nice and convenient to Cambridge and Tufts university. The staff is also great. Will certainly stay there again. There are not many good alternatives in this area. Breakfast was good.
