"A nice Surprise"
this is a really nice hotel. The room is comfortable, clean and you will not be bothered by noisy neighbors. The bathroom is beautifully organized, the desk is a pleasure to work at. Really liked the Eco friendly touches. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

"Nice stay while in Boston"
A short trip to Boston, so thankful for the upgrade to a river view room. Really appreciated the location, walking distance to green and red Ts. Loved having the bikes on site, though helmet and a lock are needed.

"Beautiful hotel, expensive parking"
Nice hotel with lots of options on site. Beautiful view of the river. The only real negative was that you have to still pay for parking even as a guest of the hotel. $38 a night seems like a lot for a paying custom at a hotel that is not cheap to stay at.

"Great hotel and location!"
I wanted to stay outside Boston and this hotel was perfect! The room was the perfect size and with an amazing view. They had a complementary wine and cheese for all new members which I am now with absolutely no pressure from the staff! I was able to take my glass or wine and cheese outside on the patio to relax!. The staff was great, extremely friendly, and eager to help you. The Concierge, Samira, was very helpful and knowledgeable in helping me finding areas to visit with my kids. I loved that she spoke French (with me), but also Arabic and Spanish! They also offer have a pool, bar, coffee shop, and restaurant!

my stay was absolutely amazing and I plan to come back! I love how Saturday nights they play a video off the projector in the pool. My spouse and I floated around on the lilipads provided and watched the little mermaid and enjoyed some freshly popped popcorn all provided by The Royal Sonesta! I strongly recommend this hotel for couples definitely!

"Nice Hotel w WaterViews /Food and Beverage Lacking"
We have stayed there before. Nice staff, great check-in experience. Vallet guys spend more time with opening the driver's door with their hands out than making an effort to open female passengers door. Room service for breakfast was a rip off. $13 for yogurt and fruit, comes in plastic cup just like downstairs that they sell for $4. Overall the hotel is very nice. I would stay there again for business but eat elsewhere. The casual restaurant was very good last visit but has seemed to go down hill. Food quality just doesn't match pricing. Food was cold...etc.

"OK hotel near major sites in Boston"
The rooms are OK - we stayed in a double room suite. thermostat didn't seem to work that well as the AC never turned off - bathroom is pleasant but not 4 star quality at all. HOtel staff that greet you a great - cookies and water in the afternoon a plus. The problem I had were with the bartender in one of the hotel restaurants, who couldn't be bothered with our drink order, and a concierge, who when asked about great seafood restaurants in boston, recommended several chain restaurants which I can get in NY - seriously? either way, we went with YELP and tried Oceanaire - awesome restaurant and would recommend it to anyone. small pool and gym area.

"Newer Hotel with Nice Cambridge Location"
The Royal Sonesta in Cambridge is a fairly new hotel with a modern decor and modern rooms. It is close enough to Harvard and MIT to be convenient to either location. The staff was friendly and helpful and the rate was very competitive. I would stay there again when I return to visit my daughter at college.

Came for a little family vacation! Hotel was awesome and staff was even better. Lennox at valet was by far the friendliest staff member. He made a point to remember us and our kids. He had great suggestions for restaurants and was over all just an awesome guy. Thank you Lennox! One problem we had was that there was someone smoking in the room next to ours and it made for a very unpleasant smell. I reported it upon check out because it was that morning that it started to smell. The hotel staff member I reported it too was very apologetic. this is not the hotels fault at all. The second problem was that there was a dirty washcloth over the shower curtain from a previous guest. This must have been an over site because the cleanliness was great. We will be back in Decemberr and plan on booking at this same hotel!

"We enjoyed my stay"
I have stayed in other hotels and resorts and so far the Royal Sonesta has been the best. The staff gets a 10, they are all professional, courteous and friendly. They went out of their way to accommodate us. The food was amazing. The view of the river and the location perfect. I slept better than at home. My son loved the staff and one of the ladies even showed him how to whistle to call a taxi. My Mom was content and the lady is super picky. She even went out by herself; she was comfortable. Thanks to everyone for taking care of us. We will definitely return again.

"Great hotel in an ideal location"
Stayed here with my wife and son for a getaway family weekend. The hotel was conveniently located within walking distance to a T station for easy and quick access to all parts of Boston. it is also located along the Charles river where we enjoyed a nice morning run. The only negative was limited parking. We chose to save on the $38 a day and street park on the south side of the hotel which was tricky to get. They also charged us for the two bottles of water which they provide in the room which was a bit much. All in all a great hotel to stay in Boston. I would definitely stay here again.

"Very convenient and comfortable"
Their bed is really comfortable. I stayed there for a week and don't feel anything bothering me---typically if I sleep for more than 3 days on a hotel bed, my back starts to hurt. Very good restaurants downstairs. Excellent view of Charles river. Next to a shopping mall where I can get food and many other things conveniently. Their staffs are very friendly. But I hope that the checkout procedure can be more efficient. I told the person repeatedly that I'm running late for my train and she still looks pretty relaxed and did everything not in a rush at all. I almost missed my train. I hope they can adopt automatic checkout procedure as in many other hotels, so that I don't need to pass by at front desk. The doorman who handled my luggage was careless and threw it up-side-down. As my laptop was on the top of the luggage I was somewhat mad at him. Other than these small things, it was a very pleasant stay.

Stayed one night. Convenient to Museum of Science and Duck Tours leaving from the Museum of Science. Room was clean and nice. But not impressed with hotel restaurant ArtBar. Ate there for lunch one day and bkfst the next. Food is nothing special. And both times service was very poor. Long wait for initial water service. Long wa it for order taking. Even longer wait for food. At lunch ... my daughters chowder never came. Had to ask for it repeatedly. At bkfst ... the table behind us got their food first yet they arrived about 15 min after us. Kitchen must be elsewhere in the hotel b/c the food comes with metal room service covers which cause condensation to build and drip down on your food. Pool is not nearly as nice as the pics online. Only three chaise lounges and one small couch seating area for sunbathing. I guess there is suppose to be bar service at the pool ... but we never got any. Sat there for about 3 hours and no one came for a drink order. Probably wouldnt stay there again. Prefer the Omni Parker.

"Terrible"
I called the morning of our arrival to confirm our late arrival. When we arrived, they had given away our room with two beds. We had four people for one bed! We were very angry. They said they would give us two rollaway beds. Guy shows up with one rollaway bed only, clueless that we needed two. Finally second one shows up. Result was that we absolutely could not walk around our room, at all. Ridiculous. Next morning we go to checkout and they said we could have free parking from the parking garage. We try to exit parking garage and gate attendant has no idea why we say we should be getting free parking. I told him to call front desk, which he does. All in all, couldn't have been more disappointed with our stay here. How we did not get our entire stay comped here for our ridiculous rooming situation, I do not know. Avoid this hotel at all costs.

"Great Hotel, not for fireworks"
The staff was wonderful and the room was clean and modern. It is conveniently located near the Museum of Science and a mall that was great for a quick cup of coffee. Unfortunately, we read on a Trip Adviser review that the hotel and specifically its restaurant was an ideal location to see the fireworks on the Fourth. This was absolutely FALSE. You had ZERO visibility. We had to go further down the boardwalk to see. Had we known this, we would have picked a hotel further down the road. This, of course, wasn't the hotel's fault.

"A strong A-."
Wonderful level of service, a very comfortable bed, and excellent dining. The "disabled" room was perfect for someone with mobility issues, except for the lack of a comfy arm chair. If you want one, go to the lobby. A well-stocked gift shop (for newspapers, drugstore items, tourist souvenirs, etc.) would have been useful, too. If you can walk easily, there's a large shopping mall across the street. But if you can't, you're out of luck. All in all, a very strong A- experience. I've been to this hotel many times, and I'll be coming back.
