Good hotel. Very large room with fridge but the heating system is VERY NOISY and blows a VERY STRONG air flow. Rather good location at the end of green line, convenient to get in the city center or to walk to Kendall Square and the MIT. The breakfast does not change a lot from one day to another but it...

Stayed here for 2 nights. Free self parking and free breakfast are a plus, especially since almost all Boston hotels charge astronomically for parking/valet. The elevators were extremely rickety, and at times felt like they were just going to drop. One of them you couldn't even tell what floor you were on because the light was out. Hallways smelled kind...

We were on a family holiday to the States and had NYC and Boston among other places on our itinerary. We did not realise that even an average/basic hotel like the Holiday Inn express costs more than a 5 star hotel in New York! The location was excellent but this was a basic - about 3 star rated hotel in...

They let me arrive early, which was a big plus! The room was very comfortable and homey. Having both a microwave and fridge was a big plus too! The staff was very friendly. Free breakfast only added to it all. With that said I am only giving 3 stars as the elevators need renovating. One didn't show which floor that...

Great location. We dropped our daughter off for her first year at BU (graduate student) and we were able to drive back and forth to her apartment (near Fenway) in no time. We had a place to park our car and drove back and forth but if you prefer the T- station was within walking distance. Breakfast was average, room...

Great location for a walking tour of Cambridge. The location is just a few blocks from Cambridge Street where there are shops & restaurants. Nice to see a bit of the local residences rather than all hotels. Staff was very friendly & helpful with good suggestions for dinner and drinks.

It was very tough to find the right hotel in Boston. We were considering parking, location and breakfast! We were driving from NY so parking was really a big deal. This hotel offers free limited parking. The parking lot gets full easily but it was safe for us to park across the street if you are a hotel guest. It...
