                  10.0

                  The comfortable bed was fantastic. The ambiance and decor of the room was very relaxing. And it was right around the corner from my early morning meeting.

                • Family with children
                  8.2

                  I found that this hotel was quite comfortable. The valet was very helpful and polite. Everything is in walking distance so we parked the car for the night. The roof top garden was a very pleasant spot to go and enjoy the nightair.

                  The mini bar was expensive and didnt like how they had all the candy at childrens reach, good thing my baby is only 1yrs old or I would be broke. And dont understand how they new exactly what we took out of the mini bar fridge.

                • Older travelers
                  9.2

                  Cleanliness and value for the $$$ was excellent. Proximity to Boston is good.

                  no complimentary coffee in the a.m other than cheap brewer in the room

                  clean, stylish room

                  Snack/drink bar inside the room was overpriced

                • Family with children
                  9.6

                  There was a beautiful outside garden on the third floor. It was a very convenient location for visiting Harvard, MIT and Boston colleges. The "T" was very close by. Also, there was a large grocery store next door. A great affordable hotel to access Boston sites.

                  There was no refrigerator or microwave in the room. Also, there was no pool.

                • Single
                  8.8

                  Location in nice part of the city, not far from cetner, near to mit and Harvard.

                  Extremely slow internet connection. Don't know if something was broken during my stay, but connection speed of kb/sec is not good even to read a newspaper.

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  The room was spacious and had a nice view. The location of the hotel was very good; close to Charles River, grocery, and many great restaurants. The air condtioning worked nicely too!

                  We didn't get any maid service, had to stop someone in the hallway to get fresh towels and shampoo.

                • Group of friends
                  9.2

                  The beds and bedding were the best ever!

                • Family with children
                  10.0

                  rooms are so comfortable and pampering, quiet and private stay to enjoy.

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  The desk clerk took extra time with me in helping print boarding passes for my flight the next day.

                  I had to mark only "good" on comfort level of the room because the beds did not have top sheets, just a down comforter which was too heavy. Even if your hotel doesn't want to make up a bed with a top sheet, it should provide one to be used. I've never been to a hotel that doesn't use top sheets.

                  Modern and Clean hotel with a relaxed feel. Very nice staff, and good business facilities. Right in the heart of Cambridge within walking distance of mit and Harvard Square. Good restaurants nearby.

                  Good hotels are pretty much the same; you get what you expect. But what makes you choose one hotel to another is the personal touch. At Le Meriden Cambridge it was Andy that made the difference. Polite, helpful and very nice; he made our stay a delightfdul stay!

                  Breakfast at Sidney Grill.

                  We had requested a crib as part of our original reservation nearly 3 months before our stay. But when we arrived, the staff simply told us they didn't have any. They were not very apologetic, claiming that our crib request wasn't held with a fee (not that we were ever given the option to do this before our stay) so we shouldn't be upset. We had our 8-week old son with us, and we would have been in real trouble if we hadn't been able to borrow a playpen from friends across town. But the whole thing was terribly inconvenient, and the customer device was terrible. We will not go back.

                  Good size beds, great location adjacent to mit and multiple quality restaurants. Very nice bathroom amenities

                  The rooms were quite small, although this was partly due to the large size of the beds.

                  The hotel room was very nicely decorated and great value for the money .

                  Extremely under staffed! There was only one person in the check in desk. Who was also the concierge and the door man! It took a while to get checked in. Check out was quicker because there wasn't anyone in front of us but again only 1 person behind the 4 station check-out counter. And she and the door guy couldn't handle flagging down a van taxi for us because they were too swamped with helping people out of their cars, into their cars, taking calls, etc. they need to hire more people.
