Porter Square Hotel, Cambridge
Excellent choice
The hotel is very well appointed. The location is great for access to the red line, buses, etc. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, there's a supermarket across the street, Harvard Square is about a 20 minute walk away. The staff are friendly and professional. The rooms are small by American standards, but plenty for most needs — think typical European hotel room. (The only annoyance was a comically placed toilet paper roll, due to room shape.) The restaurant, Collette, has recently opened and serves breakfast at surprisingly affordable prices, but needs a bit more work (e.g., I got granola with yogurt, which were provided in two separate bowls with far more of the former than latter, so I mostly ate dry granola for breakfast). Overall, I would absolutely stay here again for any visit to Cambridge, MA.
