Great stay.. Highly recommend
Great stay, loved the aesthetic Also I am a big Beekman fan and I was happy to see that you had toiletry from them. Only think I wish my shower had was a curtain to keep water out.

A great new Cambridge accommodation
This is a gem of a place. The location is terrific. An easy walk to Harvard Square, directly across from the Porter Square T stop, and lots of quintessential Cambridge cafes, restaurants and shops close by. The rooms are on the small side but the design, amenities and comfort are a fantastic value.

We only stayed at Hotel 1868 for one night en route back from Maine but it was charming, cozy, nicely updated and decorated. Service was friendly and the valet was quick to retrieve our car. Some have commented about the size of the rooms - our room felt comparable to other rooms I've stayed in in cities like DC and NYC. There was plenty of room for us to spread out and lay out our bags and suitcases. Bathroom was quite nice and the in-room coffee was appreciated. Neighborhood was lovely and there are plenty of food and drink options that are walkable to the hotel. I'd definitely stay here again.

Brand New, Cute, Cozy
The hotel is conveniently located and very clean! I loved the ambiance of this hotel and found the room very cozy an comfortable. The only two drawbacks were 1. that you do have to pay for mandatory valet if you have a car and 2. my room was on the street and there was quite a bit of road noise during the morning and evening rush. I'm sure asking for a room off of the street would solve this. The hotel is worth visiting! Free water and coffee is in every room which is always a perk, and there is a gym and business center.

Cambridge overnighter
Central location to many bars and restaurants, Across from Porter Square and T stop. Room is small but very clean and modern with woods cabin like feel. Would definitely stay again.
