Positive Reviews

Good location near attractions

The hotel places you within walking distance of shopping and dining. Plus, many of the area's best known spots are within two miles of the property. if you don't fancy walking that far or want to explore further afield, the nearby Lechmere station offers direct services all over the city.

Clean and stylish rooms

Rooms and suites are described as both stylish and spacious and it does seem that at least some have benefited from recent upgrades. Furthermore, the accommodation is clean and offers quality amenities. Many guests appreciated the inclusion of a microwave and mini-fridge.

Excellent value for money

Aside from its location and the quality of the rooms and suites, the hotel also offers friendly and efficient staff and a number of free amenities. These features lead guests to the conclusion that they have enjoyed value for money. Rates certainly seem to compare favorably to other Cambridge hotels.

Negative Reviews

Overflow parking

Although parking is complimentary, a number of guests mention that they were unable to find a space in the main lot and were instead directed to overflow parking across the street. While not a huge concern, it does mean that you may have to carry your luggage further than you might expect, not to mention cross a busy street.

Not all guests enjoyed breakfast

A small number of reviews indicate that guests are not entirely satisfied with the free breakfast. The main problem seems to be the lack of variety from day to day, although some guests also mention that the choice of items is a little uninspiring and the serving area can feel crowded.

Lack of leisure facilities

Guests generally agree that this hotel offers excellent standards, but some were disappointed about the lack of leisure facilities at the property. A swimming pool and some fitness equipment would be great additions.
