Hyatt Regency Cambridge, Overlooking Boston
Travel Blogs from Cambridge
MIT has been one of the most consequential things to happen to Bob in his life, and the chance to see the friends made almost 44 years ago was irresistible. Of the 12 young men who arrived from all over the country to join his fraternity and struggle to excel at this university, 7 were able to attend our reunion. We like to say that MIT throws a …
Well, this is all very surreal, isn't it? Boston is our last stop before jetting off to London. Our last stop. After six months of travelling, it's finally dawned on us that there's actually going to be an end to all this gallivanting. Lucky for us, we have the charming city of Boston and some local friends to distract us from the oncoming doom …
I just woke up from a nap. I probably should go back to sleep since I'm still having a headache. The bed is so comfortable. Need to figure out what to eat for dinner later.
The morning was spent getting packed and doing last minute things before driving out to Boston. B is on a work conference for the week. It took about three hours to get there. Boston, the "cradle of liberty," juxtaposes sleek skyscrapers and Colonial churches, beautifully manicured parks and pulsating urban bustle, and genteel college campuses and …
Out of all the train networks I've used on this trip, I never expected that the US would have the worst. Once again, a train was delayed, this time for four hours. It's a bit of a pity that I'm travelling at this time of year, it would have been interesting to see the landscape change over time. But as it was I set off through desert, up through …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Cambridge, Overlooking Boston
Loved the Cambridge Hyatt-Regency
We just got back from a 4 day stay at the Hyatt-Regency in Cambridge, MA. The hotel was very nice and although we booked our room through Hotwire the service we got was excellent. Everyone was helpful and the staff couldn't have been nicer. The only drawback would be the location of this hotel if you don't have a car (and don't like to walk). The nearest sub-way stop is a good 10 minutes walk away, a taxi to the airport will cost $30. Shuttle rides charge per person, so you're better off with the cab unless you are traveling solo. The hotel also has a nice "gym" with pool and a sun deck. A parking garage and the Charles river across the street. All in all a very nice hotel. We paid $140 per night (through Hotwire), thought that was reasonable for the area.
I love this hotel
I am shocked by the other reviews on this hotel. I love this hotel. The rooms are fantastic and roomy and the hotel is beautiful. The best part is the revolving restaurant on the top floor with a stunning view of Boston. This is an expensive place, dont' get me wrong. But if you are in town for a celebration (it's not close to the T) then it's a wonderful hotel.
Not recommended, even at Priceline prices.
This hotel has seen its better days. Service and amenities are lacking. Wired internet worked well at $10/24hrs. Both on-site restaurants were too expensive for the quality of service and food. Certainly not worth the standard rates, try Priceline.
Hyatt Regency Cambridge - The Last Place to Stay in Boston
We recently stayed here during a conference. The hotel was inconveniently located, the shuttle bus was never available when we needed it, and the food literally had legs. The rooms were below average, with the wallpaper peeling off the walls, and for some unexplained reason, the housekeeping staff felt it necessary to vacuum outside our rooms at 5:15 AM.
We would never stay in this hotel again.
A really poor value. Restrant on the top floor had great views, but the service was poor and the food disappointing. The breakfast buffet in the other eatery was pricy and not hot.
I had a reservation for a river view room, but had to argue with them to get one. I got one on a lower floor behind trees and it was really a no river view.
The shuttle service is a bad joke. Out of four trys I was able to get a ride once.
I cannot say anything good about the Spinnaker Restaurant...........but......the dip for the bread was to die for.......thank god for that.....I wouldn't recommeend it to anyone....it is highly priced, service is slow and food is horrible.
good luck if you want to try it anyway....
I disagree with the other reviews on this Hyatt. I do agree that the Hyatt Cambridge does cater to weddings and large functions frequently, but the hotel itself is very cool, with its atrium -style interior, indoor and outdoor balconies, the best view of Boston in the entire area (which are showcased with floor to ceiling windows in the lobby and restraunt areas) and good food (try the Spinnaker restraunt on Fri, Sat, and Sun. up on the 15th floor...breathtaking). While it is not right in the city of Boston itself (hence why it is called the Hyatt CAMBRIDGE, not Boston) it is literally a 5-7 minute cab ride away from downtown Boston,the Boston Public Garden, Newbury Street, Copley Place etc., and it is 3 minutes away from Harvard, Harvard Square and pretty much next door to M.I.T. I loved it and would recommend it, if it is what you are looking for.
Not up to Hyatt Standards
Stayed here with a senior discount rate which was about right. Very inconveniently located, although they do shuttle you to the nearest public ttransportation. Room had shower only - no tub, lobby dark and quite dreary. Rooms and amenities adequate. The restaurant was much brighter and breakfast surprisingly good. Not one of Hyatt's better properties
We used some points to stay here on arrival from London - we enjoyed Cambridge last time we flew into Boston.
Don't expect too much
It is a 3 stars hotel, with 3 star price.
Everything will cost you extra, including
on-site garage parking, breakfast, etc.
