  • 8.0.Very Good

    A beautiful hotel with friendly staff and a good restaurant at a nice location. The only down side is the too basic and small gym, and the room fridge that started making a loud noise that woke me up in the middle of the night.

    Good but costly

    Location is good and hotel staff are friendly. Room was also clean. But, the price was a little bit too high even considering all these aspects.

    We had a great time at this hotel. It exceeded our expectations. Good location, close to interest sites in Cambridge and very easy to get to Boston. We rented bikes and used them to get all around Boston. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Free wine in the courtyard from 5 to 6 PM each day was a nice touch. I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit Boston for business or pleasure.

    Great property, incredible staff

    Got an excellent deal on this property and had no idea what to expect as it wasn’t a name we’re familiar with. We arrived late at night and staff were incredible. When we needed to change rooms at 11pm because we were in an adjoining room to a young family, no problem. Beds are comfy, funky robes and yoga mats in the closet, spacious bathroom with nice products, and a decent amount of room to move around. Only complaint was that we usually turn the fan on the AC unit to high to get some white noise but these ones didn’t make much at all. So I downloaded an app (WiFi is free if you join their loyalty program) and problem solved. Restaurant was lovely - had breakfast there one morning and the decor is funky, food was great and service was quick. But the best part was the staff. Everyone went above and beyond to help us move rooms, give us transit advice, store our luggage, etc. Can’t speak highly enough of them. We had one other issue but it was resolved quickly and beyond our expectations. All in all, fantastic experience. We’ll be keeping an eye out for Kimpton properties for figure trips.
