"Short trip to Boston"
The location was easy to get to from the interstate. The room was comfortable and had a wonderful view of the river.Genuine Expedia guest review
I had a great stay at Double Tree. Everything was solid: the room, staff, restaurant, etc.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was great. Courtesy shuttles were also very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Asked for a room with a better view and we were upgraded FREE!!!! This place is the BEST!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The pool was dirty!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect place while visiting Harvard"
Excellent service. Lovely, comfortable room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfort hotel to stay"
The hotel is closely located to the university campus. It is clean and comfort, but the food provided there is quite expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Well worth the price"
An overall comfortable stay. Not spectacular, but absolutely nothing to complain about. Good price, but beware if you're renting a car... $35/day to park in the garage and there is no alternative parking nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay in close proximity to bu, Harvard, etc."
I had a great time with my roommate staying here for a couple of nights, the hotel is very professional and nice and the staff was very accommodating to our needs. The only possible reservations I had about the entire experience were that the pool was temporarily closed for construction and that the garage parking fee was a little high. Besides these […] very minor issues, it couldn't have been a better experience. Would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the heart of Boston"
Room was really nice; service was good and location was convenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There was some confusion because Expedia had not made the payment on their part... But the staff was nice enough to call and solve the problem with Expedia.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice but expensive"
$35 per night for parking Very expensive bar/restaurants ($15 for a martini) close to Harvard but not walking distance. Maybe this is par for that area but quite expensive when you factor in the parking and food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Stay for Business"
Pros: - Nice hotel with great amenities for a reasonable price. - On site restaurant was quite good. - Central location for business needs. - Friendly staff. - Free wi-fi (which is HUGE for nicer hotels). Very clean rooms. Cons: - Surrounding neighborhood didn't offer much for food, etc. - If you are driving, access to the hotel can be very confusing. […] It even stumped Google Maps. But then again, accessing almost any place in Boston was confusing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great weekend getaway trip to Boston"
My experience at the Doubletree Cambridge was a fantastic one. I got there really early before the actual check in and the hotel manager gave me my room still very pleasantly. The hotel Cambridge has many shuttles available throughout the day to different parts of Boston for drop off and pickup that made traveling without a vehicle very easy. The drivers […] are also very friendly people. I would recommend that and traveling on foot to the other areas and using the subway of Boston to really get the Boston experience. Never got to use the bar or restaurant inside, but the aesthetics of their appearance were very appealing. The design of the building is very beautifully simple. I had a great time in Boston because of my stay here. World definitely book again in the future. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"SCAM DONT use car service Black Escalade"
I m saddened to leave such a terrible review. I stayed at this hotel the night before an extremely invasive surgery at Dana Farber Cancer Center at Faulkner Hospital. I needed a taxi from the hotel to the hospital at 6:45am I was told by the front desk that taxis arrive every few minutes. Well after waiting 15 minutes I was told to approach the concierge, […] who was extremely friendly. He told me that the black Cadillac Escalade car service would drive me for $20, I figured this was reasonable as the taxi services I had researched all quoted between $12-$15. The concierge and driver in front of me agreed upon the price of $20 and told me to hop in. As I took the 15 minute ride to the hospital I had a friendly chat with driver and he was aware that I was about to have a bilateral mastectomy. As we came within the vicinity of the hospital the driver told me that I needed to have $40 ready. I was shocked I said you quoted $20! He asked if I wanted to get to the hospital or not. Him being a LARGE young man, and I myself being a petite female and not wanting to risk being late or god knows what else, forked over the extra $20. He drove into the hospital drop off. I couldn't even process it. The day after my surgery I contacted the hotel management who was apologetic but offered no compensation and stated they had no control over the drivers but they would request they not be at the hotel again. I don't feel this was satisfactory. This man was nothing but a two bit thug and if I weren't about to have surgery the police would've been involved. I will never stay here or any other double tree again because of the lack of concern of this issue. As for the hotel facilities themselves are beautiful and state of the art. Very stunning and made for entertaining clients or guests when you walk in. The room is slightly small but up to date. Bathrooms are clean, bright and up to date.

"Great Place for Boston"
WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!! My wife and I come here every year for our anniversary. The staff, the environment, the view of the Charles River, it is all so incredible! Highly recommend this hotel!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Disliked paying for parkingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were able to get the room for a very reasonable rate but it is an older hotel in need of renovations. We will not be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Modern hotel in convenient location"
The hotel decor was very modern yet comfortable. The staff and service were excellent. Although it was a short stay, I would plan to stay here again if I have business in the Cambridge area. It was right next to Genzyme and in walking distance to several Cambridge companies.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Hotel was clean and the bed was comfortable. The location was a bit difficult to maneuver depending which way your coming from. I would stay here again. Nice views of the river.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in the middle of nowhere"
Hotel was great but the location was not good. I was happy to read there was a shuttle service to take you downtown BUT the schedule is VERY limited and no service at all during lunch hours. It really wasnt convenient at all so we ended up having to take taxis everywhere because there was nothing around and the food at the hotel was not hot (clam chowder […] and calamari) and was very expensive and the server wasn't very good. She just dumped the stuff on us very fast and didn't even ask if we wanted our food all together. We just got our chowders and then the calamari came after which was an appetizer. The bar closes way too early but understandable given the noise factor given its location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"You Get What You Pay For!"
The room we had was very small and not conducive to lounging around. Basically, it was a room just for sleeping and showering and the mattress was soft and lumpy. The television in the room was rather small. We got the room at a very low price so maybe we were shoved into a room that is smaller than other rooms at the hotel. The elevator was just outside […] the room and we were kept up at night and woken up early in the morning by the annoying pinging of the elevator signaling a stop at our floor. The heating system in the room had a loud clanging sound. The closet's mirror door did not close properly and jutted out into an already narrow walk space. Parking for one night was $35. Not a bargain after all! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel with a few drawbacks"
Doubletree is a top notch hotel chain and often a first choice. We were somewhat disappointed with the Doubletree in Boston - access is very difficult from the T (subway); even by car, it was tough to navigate the turn off and directions were not terribly clear. That being said, the room was large and we had a great view. Biggest let down, however, […] was that we did not receive the famous chocolate chip cookies upon arrival - none left. And when we inquired the next morning, they were not ready (hadn't finished baking). Again not available that evening. Alas.... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great service. Great location"
Flew into Boston and had one night before heading out to the coast. Within walking distance of Harvard Square although they do have shuttle service if you want. A Whole Foods and Trader Joe's right across the river so easy to stock up on food if you are on your way to a cottage. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would deffinately recommend to anyone […] who is staying in Boston Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel with some major drawbacks"
The hotel rooms and pool were great. Kids had a ball. BUT the food was not only way over priced but also terrible. Numerous times we had to send back awful food and ask to have it taken off the bill. Given that the hotel is so isolated, having real choices for meals would be an essential -- and it wasn't available.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good option for BU"
Nice staff, easy on/off Hwy 90, good value. No nearby T station, but taxis were easy to find. Only problem--my room was next to elevator bank, so loud chimes and noisy people kept me awake. Also, I could hear every word the guests in room next to mine said--and they were early risers. If wall/door soundproofing can't be improved, how about a white noise […] feature on the weird clock radio? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
pleasantly surprised by the size of the room, it included a sitting area w couch, table/chairs, TV. Nice choice of restos too, no need to exit. But $119 price is deceiving....parking was $35!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel. Great staff."
From the moment we arrived until our departure, the staff was helpful, knowledgable and accommodating. The room was lovely and very comfortable. We availed ourselves of the complimentary shuttle service and had a great time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to stay"
Parking is a bit of a problem because the hotel was full and we had a car. Garage gates weren't working with the room key.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was ok. The bathroom shower grout was mold/mildew covered. The A/C did not cool the room sufficiently. The parking garage exit gate didn't work with the room card and I had to use the intercom to get staff to open it-twice...with a $35 parking fee.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not at all impressed with the staff and the service. The hotel is definitely overpriced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was clean and comfortable for the money. My room was very clean. The only drawback was the location relative to shops and restaurants. The shuttle helped but service ended too early in the evening to make it useful for later dinning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
not enough hotel staff for check-in, check-out and concierge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Outrageous parking fees"
Would have been an ok stay if they didn't overcharge for parking. $30 is a HUGE ripoff when you are already paying a premium fee. I won't be back.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great Boston Hotel"
We stayed in the Boston/Cambridge DoubleTree for our 25th anniversary. Both of us graduated from BU and we were excited to be back in the city. The hotel was very, very nice - they let us check in early, upgraded us to a suite, and the room was very nice and very clean. The hotel is not directly in the city but off the highway entering the city, so […] the view from the room was great. We had a take a shuttle to get into the city of Boston, which was convenient and fine. To get to BU, which we could see from our window, we had to take a cab as it was not easy to walk to. Overall, it was a great hotel and we would definitely stay there again. Though we didn't see any of the famous DoubleTree chocolate chip cookies! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't stay here unless you only care about locatio"
Cleaning staff had not dusted in a while. TV & room phone did not work. Had to go to front desk twice for them to send someone to repair the TV.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Another good option for Boston/Cambridge"
I have been going to Boston for years and have had many different experiences with hotels. For this last trip I tried the Doubletree Suites for the first time. We found the location to be good for the two events we were attending in Harvard Square and The Fenway. The room was very comfortable and quiet. We thought the restaurant was generally excellent, […] but I thought the breakfast buffet was overpriced and needed more healthy options. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"You'd be surprised how nice it is"
First time stay at a Double Tree/Hilton at the Cambridge/Boston location for business. At first I couldn't figure out how to find the entrance and realized that it is conveniently located just as you are coming off exit 18 from the Pike. Don't listen to your GPS - take the Cambridge exit going right instead of the Brighton exit going left. At the second […] light you will be at Soldiers Field Rd. Make a right onto the on ramp for Storrow Drive BUT stay on the right - the entrance to the hotel is right there. I like to self park and the garage is above ground and right next to the hotel (steps away). The staff was very helpful and even gave me an upgrade (which I didn't ask for) with a lovely view of the Charles River and Cambridge. The rooms were comfortable and very clean, including the bathroom. I had the breakfast buffet which was okay but not great for the price. However, the restaurant service was excellent. If you drive over the bridge (or walk) there is a Whole Foods right on River Road, which is great. They have a shuttle bus that goes to and from Harvard Square which is super handy. I wasn't sure if I would like this hotel and now I feel I would certainly come back again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
