Meeting the Friends

... but not the European French we are all familiar with. They had a Kreole French (Haitian French) congregation that meets there. This morning was the highlight of our day by far.

Shortly after we left we went to the city and first thing we see? Jehovah's Witnesses out doing a cart in the middle of Boston shopping center. Was very exciting again!! We had been looking for them. They have 4 zones in Boston they do the cart witnessing there ...

July 4th in Boston

... at either airport when it was this busy!! I had packed short pants and sandals in my backpack and first thing I did after leaving plane was a trip to the 'women’s’ and change to these cooler clothes. And a good thing because I waited about hour for my SuperShuttle ride. Then he got lost taking the first couple home and we had to backtrack almost to the airport before getting it right – then next guy lived south of the 60 and I live north of ...

Tea for two?

... The menu was of steak salad, pork belly, snapper and fish I had never heard of, specials that had vegetables not of this planet and sauces that sounded like paint colours. All served by Stephen our server for the evening.

Forgive me I am being mean and stereotypical, the food was not, I had a filet mignon steak encrusted in rosemary and served on a bed of celeriac mash and cilantro, whatever that is. The interesting thing was the steak was only 4 ounces, and ...

... Irish believe they are ancestors of the ancient druid people called the Celts. The teams logo and mascot also reflect the Irish connections as it’s a traditional symbol of Ireland; the Leprechaun. Apparently the original owner of the Celtics wanted to attract this fan base to come support home games. We're pumped to tackle the town this upcoming St. Patrick's Day weekend!!!

Birthday in Boston

A travel blog entry by idahotraveler

Well we made our first trip to Boston. It was quite an adventure for sure. We got started around 9am we wanted to avoid the morning traffic (it was a holiday but still traffic). We drove to Alewife (don't you like the name!) and we boarded the subway. That was an adventure we had to ask for help to buy the tickets because everything is purchased at a computer kiosk very few humans to be found to ask for ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express & Suites Boston - Cambridge

    Great Cambridge Location

    from

    Arrived late Christmas eve at this hotel and although there were only a few guests, we were greeted warmly by a friendly staff. The hotel is immaculate, has a large breakfast room with full breakfast from a self-serve area. Not just rolls and coffee, but a great array of hard-boiled eggs, homemade muffins, cereals, fresh fruit, juices, etc. A nice fireplace and seating area in the lobby.

    Wonderful!

    from

    I have never really liked Holiday Inn Express Hotels but after staying at the one in Cambridge, I've had to rethink my opinion! I stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed my stay. I made the reservation the night before by phone and the clerk gave me a discount with AAA. It was 2 Queen beds, clean, free parking (covered in some parts) with free breakfast and internet. Everything was wonderful...since the renovation of the hotel. The T was a few minutes walk and easy to access. I liked the location because I was here for business so I didn't run into a lot of tourists.

    I would stay here again because of the value for the room. It was much larger than the hotel across the street (the Hampton) which had no internet access and a crowded garage.

    Excellent and Good Value

    from

    Excellent location! Just 3 minutes walk from the T Subway, and 15 minutes to the Science Museum. Hotel room was great value, clean, good sized and well decorated. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was superb, and free cookies were given each afternoon as well. Boston itself is a beautiful city. One of my favourites.

    Good for Marathoners

    from

    Came to town for the Marathon, big weekend in boston, all the hotels seem to crank up the rates. We booked a couple of months in advance and got a good rate $115 per night for a double. The room was good, 5 min walk to the subway, definitely the best way to get around Boston. Friendly staff, very clean, and the free breakfast wasn't bad either. Free parking........Good place for runners on a budget.

    What a nice Change

    from

    Beautiful and newly renovated. I stayed here over a year ago and did not want to come back, I did and I am glad, Friendly staff, great breakfast.

    Highly recommend it.

    Friendly staff, not bad hotel

    from

    The staff at this hotel were incredibly friendly and helpful! They were in the process of doing some major renovations (we came back to our room one afternoon and it looked as though someone had demolished the hallway - they were scraping the paint off and had taken down all the pictures etc). The room was ok - the carpet was really stained in many places so I wasn't real sure how clean it was. The bedding was extremely old - the bedspreads had stains and the sheets were the thinnest and most worn I've ever experienced. All that said, we still had an ok good stay. Plus, it looks like they're renovating big time, so I'm assuming they'll do the interior of the rooms (hopefully including new mattresses and new sheets). The staff is friendly and the breakfast room is quite pleasant. The location isn't bad - the Lechmere stop is close by, but they were tearing up the tracks so were running a shuttle bus. Boston hotels are SO expensive and we got this for $125/night which I thought was pretty good, so I'd probably stay there again - especially since I think the rooms will be renovated.

    Nice hotel

    from

    Our stay here was excellent. They gave us a free upgrade to a suite. The breakfast was great and it was a very short walk to a McDonald's and a huge grocery store. It was a few blocks walk to the subway in a neighborhood that you wouldn't want to walk in after dark, but it was okay in the daytime.

    Very poor, overpriced hotel with a good location

    from

    We first ran into problems the minute we arrived. They had ran out of Non-Smoking and two bed rooms when we had specifically asked for one in our reservation (they cited computer problems). The lady then put us in a smoking suite for the same price, but it ended up being a terrible room with one full bed, a couch with a pull-out bed, no closet (which I found to be quite strange), and stains on the floor, wall, and furniture (the bathroom looked to have been newly redone so it was okay). The next day we were able to move into the room that we had requested in the beginning but it was still about the same quality in terms of cleanliness as the first one (the blanket on the bed had a hole in it, stains on the floor, etc, etc). They also seemed to be having problems with their housekeeping staff, computer, and management. When we switched rooms the room that we were to be put in came up as clean on the computer, but wasn't. The lady that was helping us out was nice, but she seemed to be new (she said that she had worked at another Holiday Inn and had just came over to this one on that day), and when she called housekeeping more than once they offered no explanation.

    Impolite female manager

    from

    We (my wife, my 5 month old boy and me) just moved from Washington State to Boston and stayed in the hotel while we were searching for an apartment.

    Cheap stay in Cambridge

    from

    Stayed here for 3 nights for a workshop at MIT. Easy 15-20 minute walk to MIT campus, but I wouldn't want to do it in the rain or cold. 5 minute walk to Green Line with easy access to downtown. Good location for accessing running/walking paths along Charles River. Rooms were nothing special, but fine. Free breakfast had a good variety. Complaints: no fitness room; we didn't receive our wakeup call the first morning.
