... so everything.

Monday and wednesday, oh that means Law and Psych class. I was so excited to go to this class. Ellsworth Lapham Fersch gives these classes, he is a forensic psychologist and loads of things more. My opinion about this class is still very reserved, cause I felt that this week was more introductory. Nonetheless an awesome subject, so I will share more soon! I am taking this class with Steve, an Australian guy. I love the goofy humor we share, makes time ...

...and I made a face mocking her face and kept riding. Such is a common story on the one way streets of Boston, often with three or more of the same direction in a row. Thus I ride the other way, safely of course, and am often met with funny looks from pedestrians who are not vested in my well-being and should keep their big noses in their own business. Even considering one-way confusion, Boston is a fun biking ...

Tea for two?

... which I thought was an estate agents.

Boston is famous for its Bars "Cheers" being the most prominent, Irish policemen, footballing patriots, baseballing Red Sox, and of course the tea party of 1773.

An act of great import in the history of the separation of the United States from the mother country and the formation of the independent union signed in 1776. Essentially the uprising was a very middle class affair. Under the auspices of the Tea Act ...

History in Boston

A travel blog entry by idahotraveler

Off to Boston to see the sites. We were old pros when it came to the subway! Once we arrived we decided to walk to our first trolley pick up which was located on the waterfront. From Boston Commons it appeared to be a short walk. Wow is it easy to get turned around in a big city when you are not familiar with the landscape.....all we saw were tall skyscrapers. The map we had was for the Freedom Trail so we thought it would ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Hotel Tria Cambridge

    So so

    from

    We booked the Tria because it was close to Harvard yard. It was convenient by car - the train is a ten minute walk away. The hotel staff was friendly, but in retrospect, I would not stay again. The room was spacious and clean, but the toilet 'ran' and hardly flushed, and the air conditioner was noisy and not efficient. Also, the continental breakfast, of which the hotel boasts, was poor, with not enough seating for the breakfast hour rush. In all, disappointing for the cost.

    Great Place - Don't judge a book by it's cover

    from

    It's a good thing we arrived late, otherwise we may have never gone in. The hotel facade and neighborhood leave much to be desired. However, once inside, the place was cozy.

    Good value for the price

    from

    We checked in late at night or I might have driven past . . . this hotel does NOT have "curb appeal." However, the rooms are nice, if somewhat dark, the free breakfast is very good, staff is friendly and helpful, pleasant pool area, if a bit noisy. Next to a shopping center w/McDonalds, movie theater complex, Whole Foods market -- nice for picking up a few snacks and bottled water. Long walk to T stop. We checked out early to move to a more central location, but I would stay again for a day or 2.

    Indifferent Front Desk

    from

    I stayed at Hotel Tria during a recent trip to Boston. The air conditioning unit in my room broke down and it took two calls to the front desk to get a mechanic to come up to fix it. Worst of all, I didn't receive a wake-up call on the morning of my departure because the phone in my room wasn't working. (I had made the wake-up call request in person at the front desk the night before). I almost missed my plane and the person at reception couldn't have been less concerned when I alerted her to the problem. My advice - stay somewhere else.

    Great Bargain/Tourist Hotel

    from

    We visited Boston in October 2003. We were shocked at the high prices of hotels in Boston, and we searched long and far for a reasonably-priced hotel that was still located such that we wouldn't have to rent a car. The Best Western Hotel Tria fit the bill perfectly. The hotel was cheap, clean, and quiet. The included continental breakfast was good as well. It is located at the end of one of the subway lines in Cambridge, about a 5-10 minute walk from the station. As long as you don't mind this short walk, we found the location to be great for exploring Boston by subway. If you favor peace and quiet and saving some money over being right in the middle of things, then the Hotel Tria is perfect.

    Service with a smile!

    from

    The service at this hotel was amazing! Everyone was warm and pleasant and went out of their way to make sure that we felt welcome. The pool and jacuzzi were a great surprise and the breakfast was fantastic! Make your own waffles, cereals, yogurts, and bagels were very nicely displayed and kept well stocked. Overall, this hotel far exceeded my expectations! Great Job!

    A Pleasant Surprise

    from

    At the last minute I needed a place to stay that was close to Somerville and had easy access to Rt. 2. An online search turned up availablity at Hotel Tria. The outside of the hotel still needs rennovation but once inside I was pleasantly surprised with every aspect of the stay. The staff was very friendly and paid great attention to the small details. The room was comfortable and very clean. Newly rennovated. The bathroom was also very clean. Continental breakfast was better than I expected, complete with a "make your own waffle" station. Overall, this was a great value for the money. Clean, comfy, and convenient. I would definitely return.

    New & comfortable room!

    from

    Stayed at the Hotel Tria for two nights in December. The rooms were overall in good shape...resently redecorated, but the bathroom needs updating The heat/ac unit is old too and did not work well. The room was so hot even though the heat wasn't on. The mattress was incredibly comfortable! T station is a bit of a walk. I would stay here again.

    Boutique Interior - Great Rooms

    from

    Interior Rooms all newly refinished, offer Bose Radios and a truly unique experience for sight sound and smells. Pick your own soaps, great continental breakfast still undergoing some renovations but overall good experience. Near Red line T station for public transportation!

    Good for tourists

    from

    This hotel (about to change names to "Best Western Hotel Tria") is a good location for Boston area visitors. It is about a half mile from a T (subway) stop. It is very close to Fresh Pond, a lovely area for picnics, biking, and walks. Shopping, restaurants and a 10-theatre complex are very close by. The rooms have been updated in the last year and are very nice. The bathroom was somewhat small - but everything worked fine! Continental breakfast is served daily. There is an indoor pool and hot tub, too. We'd stay there again!
