"Great hotel in Cambridge."
I really enjoyed my stay. The accommodations were comfortable and clean. Nice view of the Charles River and Boston skyline. The shopping mall across the street was very nice. I took the subway to the Boston Convention Center each day, which was about three or four blocks away. This might not work for some people, but it was great for me. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The pool and work-out facilities were very nice. I didn't eat at the restaurants at the hotel, so I can't comment on that. I would definitely stay here again when I travel to Boston.

"Good"
Overall, this hotel was very good. It took us 10-15 minutes walk to nearest T station, though. Still it was very convenient. There are three stations near the hotel. The location was little bit far from downtown in Boston, but it took 10 minutes by car to get there. There are restaurants and a mall outside nearby. The stuff in the hotel was good. The room was clean. The parking cost us 38 dollars per night. Wifi was available, but limited for free. The lady at the check-in counter was so kind. She was very nice to my kids and gave the lobster dolls for them. Plus, she upgraded our room for free when I was worried that my kids would fall off from the beds. We had a great time in Boston thanks to Sonesta hotel!

"Okay Hotel"
The hotel was okay. It's in a pretty good location with a mall across the street and a train within a 10 minute walk. The rooms overlook the river which is nice. The bathroom was a little small with a tiny commode and a tight walk-in shower. Water pressure wasn't great either. The room itself was spacious and clean and the lighting and amount of plugs were good. They have lights at the sides of the bed that are motion sensored so they turn on if you have to get up in the middle of the night which was very nice. The bed was comfortable but squeaky. The cable TV was a little old school. The pool is slightly heated but there isn't a hot tub which was a bummer, especially after walking all over the city the first day. Overall it was an okay hotel, a little too pricey for what you get in my opinion.

"Distinctly average and over-priced"
We were assigned a closet-sized room (literally), which at about $300 daily rate was outrageous. After objecting, the staff moved to a spacious room. The hotel is ok, but distinctly average in terms of facilities and mediocre service. OK for a short stay. Excellent location but very expensive for its mediocrity, including the $38 daily garage fee. I would only recommend this hotel at the right price.

"Not what i expected for the price"
The room that was given to me was a corner unit. Make sure you do not get that room. The bathroom is small and the toilet is about 2 inches from the shower glass door, not very confortable, the room is small and odd to walk around the bed ect. The tv takes about 30 seconds to change each chanel, there is no convenience store in the facilities and the foods is not that good.

"Lovely but loud"
The hotel was great. It was in a convienent location with decent restaurants and things to do nearby. Really the only thing that bothered me was the noise. I could hear everything going on in the hallway. When the cleaning staff began working (which seemed really early) and when my neighbor came home, brushed his teeth, flushed the toilet, and had a conversation with his wife. I heard it all. I'd stay there again if I go back to Boston, but I would ask for a quieter area of the hotel if possible.

"Style, location, and professionalism"
Stylish design and comfortable, with professional, friendly staff throughout. Great lobby nooks, fireplaces, and modern art. The pool and solarium were an unexpected escape--spacious, very clean, and warm with relaxing sky views. Excellent room layout, firm beds, great pillows and modern tiled bath. Only drawbacks: room was cold and heat struggled to keep up in our corner room with a view (replacement windows needed); in-room coffee and tea was poor; art bar wine and food was mediocre, although the barman was friendly and knowledgeable; cocktails are good.Loved the location for walking, access to the T, and great Boston views. Would love to come back in better weather.

"Modern, clean, inexpensive, convenient"
Stayed here with 5 others (across 2 rooms) to attend a conference. Rooms are small and walls are thin, but the hotel bar provides a pretty good area for small groups. There's a mall literally across the street in case you forgot anything at home, and the science museum is around the corner. Doesn't take very long to get into Boston, very manageable with Uber. Staff were very helpful but never came off as intrusive or annoying. Our group got a noise complaint one night but the security guys were direct, succinct, and left us alone after we went downstairs.

"Disappointed"
We booked our hotel rooms (plural) from hotels.com and we called about a week or so in advance to make sure all rooms could be put together even though some were different bed types. We were assured that it was no problem and it could be done. But when we arrived from Philadelphia to Boston to check in 3 of the 4 rooms we booked were wrong. Two rooms were supposed to be king size beds and they were given queens. And the room with 2 double beds wasn't ready because it had an engineering problem. The fourth room was fine nothing went wrong. They solved the king bed room problem by putting us at opposite ends of the hall from one another (which is why we called a week in advance to be kept together) Then the room that wasn't ready was dealt with by giving us another room that was also not ready yet because it was being cleaned but at least there were no engineering problems. Check in was 3pm and we did not arrive in Boston and at the Sonesta until 4pm. There was no reason for our rooms to not be ready for us. They sent 2 rooms complimentary fruit to apologize for the inconvenience. This is my second time staying at a Sonesta in the last 2 months and I was very disappointed. First stay was in Philadelphia where I'm from and waited almost 2 hours to get my car back from valet. Meanwhile they charge you $40 a night to park in their garage but you wait that long to get your car back from them.

"Lovely hotel in convenient location"
Even though we arrived well before regular check-in time, we were able to get into a room right away (9:00 a.m.), which meant we could start our day, already settled in. Concierge and front-desk people were very helpful with directions, maps, and extra keys. Studio Cafe had delicious breakfast foods. Cambridgeside Galleria right across the street with CVS for forgotten necessities, food court for a quick bite, and exterior restaurants open late on weekend nights. Only a few blocks from Lechmere T stop. Taxis readily available. Wonderful, contemporary ambiance in the lobby and public areas. Comfortable beds, quiet halls. A few minor issues that didn't negatively affect our stay or willingness to return, but perhaps worth mentioning... even though the thermostat showed 65, it felt closer to 75 or 80 in the room - definitely ten degrees difference between the room and the hall. Tub drained slowly/standing water an inch or two deep when showering. (Told front desk upon check-out, and they comped a pastry and drink at the Studio in-house, for two of us.) Pieces of cereal from a previous guest under the end of the bed, so not a very thorough cleaning between guests. We were putting together a small puzzle - housekeeping pushed at it to dust, I guess, and knocked pieces behind the desk, which we had to shimmy away from the wall to retrieve the pieces.

We took the children to Boston for the weekend. This was our first time back at Royal Sonesta since they finished the upgrade. The staff is friendly, genuine and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Great workout room and the pool was clean. This hotel is walking distance to the Science Museum (even in sub zero weather)! The breakfast restaurant needs more variety and should at a minimum have the food that they offer on their menu. This was our only disappointment. However, their new café was wonderful!

"Great place to stay during the 2015 snowstorms"
We had relatives visiting during the worst week of the Boston area's winter form hell. They and we agree that the Royal Sonesta is a great place for staying during bad weather. Its location on the Charles River makes it really great during good weather. The hotel has many interior space that can help avoid getting cabin fever, there are attractions within walking distance so there are always something to do even when the T dies not run, and the variety of good nearby places to eat makes being housebound easier to bear.

"Would stay here again with my family"
We stayed here as a family of 4 (3 and 5 year old) since the hotel came up when I searched on this site for family-friendly. I was surprised, because the look of the hotel didn't appear to be the usual family-friendly style. When we got there, I was afraid we made a mistake, but soon after saw several other families with kids. Seemed like a very reason rate per night ~180. Parking was $36 a night. It was close enough to TD Garden where we were headed the next day. We did not have time for the pool.

The hotel was very nice. Your staff was extremely helpful and kind to our children. One of your associates (Patrick)gave them a hat and stuffed animals, which made them very happy and a nice gesture. Our only concern, which may be more of a city issue is that there are no microwaves in the room. That did prevent a challenge to heat up some food for our younger child.

A great hotel experience for the money, the room was clean and very modern. The coffee was delicious downstairs in the coffee shop as well. My only complaints were that the bar has a private liquor license so you can't buy a drink and then bring it to your room, and room service gets pricey and takes too long. BYOB! and parking per night is pricey, $38 to self park, I personally think it's wrong when hotels charge guests that much to park per day, but I guess it's what you get in the city.
