Overall an enjoyable stay with friends from out of town visiting to see opening day at Fenway. Near enough to Fenway and just across river from Cambridge with a short ride to Harvard Square. Enjoyed a drink at the bar after the game which was quite busy on a Friday afternoon. We ate dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and were satisfied with both […] meals. Just as were finishing our dinner the jazz club started up and was loud, not that it bothered us as the music was good and it appeared to be a popular place as well as a popular artist as both shows that night were sold out. Not a sound from club up in our rooms. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Shorty but a nice experience. I recommend. Excellent localizationGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location for Boston and Cambridge visits"
The staff at this location are very very helpful. They went out of their way to make sure my stay was comfortable which I appreciate. Now that the pool renovations are finished this is an even better choice for families.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Parking was an expensive surprise. Getting in and out of the property was a bit challenging due to location. But the hotel itself was very comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff took extra time to tell my daughter and I how to get around Boston and the best places to go for the limited time we were there. The front desk clerk gave us corner to corner directions on how to get to the train. The room was clean and was ready when we arrived in Boston (before normal check in time).Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms were nice. Nothing is included and they have 3 different taxes included on your bill. Overall it was really nice but expensive in the end.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Requested a room with a view and received an upgrade to river view. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The destinations that the hotel shuttle services save a lot of driving and parking fees.....more than enough to cover the daily parking fee at the hotel. This is my second stay in the last 6 months and I look forward to my next visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to Harvard"
Fun time fun town!staff very friendly and accommodatingGenuine Expedia guest review
Great cleanliness comfort and staff. The only drawback is that it is not really feasible to walk to any restaurants however there is a resteraunt in the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great views, room not so modern."
Loved the location and the views. room was just o.k. and parking cost an additional $35.00. We asked for a box fan and they said they would look for one. Never got one and never even received a phone call back. Jacuzzi was disgusting, water was brown and wreaked of urine. several guest complained. My wife phoned the manager who wasn't available, and […] also never received a phone call back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel in Cambridge"
Staff was attentive, extremely helpful and very pleasant. Room was basic, but clean and exactly as described. I liked that it had a little lounge and restaurant because the hotel is really not by anything short walking distance (T is about 15-20 min away). There is a complimentary shuttle to Harvard Square which was a very welcome surprise. I'd definitely […] stay again and have nothing to complain about whatsoever.

Very nice hotel with great decor and amenities. The food served in the hotel is on the pricey side (for the portions offered) but the staff was friendly and helpful. This hotel is in very close proximity to Harvard University and the free Wi-Fi was an added bonus!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing hotel stay"
We went as a family for a business trip and the staff were very welcoming. Our TV in the room wasn't plugged in but in less than 20 mins we were up and running after the technician Frank came to fix it. He was very courteous and friendly. The rooms were very clean and we had an awesome view to the city. Super comfortable beds!!! The kids loved the stay […] and the breakfast as well. It was delicious! The location is perfect if you want to tour Boston. The museums are close by and the food choices are hard to pick since there is many places available. Overall an awesome location to stay with a family. We will be returning soon!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a good experience...."
I've traveled many places and have stayed in more hotels then I care too but this goes down as one of the top five worst hotel stays.The bathroom had mold in the shower and the top drain in the sink had build up of dirt, grime, and mold. I assume the layout of the hotel is suppose to be visually stimulating but to me, the openness was odd and had a […] clinical feel to it as the walls outside of the rooms are stark white. The price was comparable to other hotels in the area but to charge so much for overnight parking was exorbitant; especially, as I was attending a workshop in the same hotel. I was told I had to remove my bags from the room although, my conference hadn't concluded. The coffee in the snack bar was subpar and I honestly, missed my Kuerig where I can get an excellent cup of coffee for a lot less. I have no qualms regarding paying for good service, great food etc. but when everything was lousy and inadequate why should we pay so much? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The price is right for a suite hotel conveniently located in Boston. The staff are cordial and very helpful. The bar and restaurant make it possible to have a drink and meal without venturing out if you are arriving late. The rooms are nicely furnished and comfortable and there is a covered parking area attached to the hotel.Genuine Expedia 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

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.

"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
