We then followed the trail to the Old North Church (where the lanterns were hung) and had a look inside - the pews are lovely. People in the ...

Boston...Day 2

... least I got to see the inside of the building.

From there we ended up in what I am guessing is the Little Italy area of Boston. This is where Camden found the bakery he had been craving. His only regret is that he did not get some 'to go' so he could be enjoying it right now. By this point we were getting hungry and passing all the little open-air Italian restaurants was not helping. We decided to head back to the car but ...

After our long walk, we T-ed over to Harvard (yeah, not sure if T-ed is a vowel, but decided to invent it, ala Smoot). Most of the campus buildings are the classic red brick with white trim, but a few have interesting Neo-Gothic details thrown in ...

Arriving at the Omni Parker House, we can't believe how gorgeous this hotel is and how fortunate we are to stay here. We've chosen to stay here the night before our official first day of our tour begins. The history that abides here at the Parker house is mostly Democratic but, it is JFK and his family.

... rich people!

Lowlight of the day, poor food selection in the still renovating LA international terminal. The food court before security checkpoint is fine, but once you are inside, there is only ONE bar/cafe in the whole terminal charging ridiculous prices for ****** food, and since they have monopoly, the waiting staff petty much act like you owe them money. Even the meals they served on the plane was better than them.

    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.
