      Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Cambridge, Overlooking Boston

      Loved the Cambridge Hyatt-Regency

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      Avoid It

      from

      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.

      Spinnaker Restaurant

      from

      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....

      Breathtaking views

      from

      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

      from

      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

      Unconvincing

      from

      We used some points to stay here on arrival from London - we enjoyed Cambridge last time we flew into Boston.

      The hotel is not just a long way from everywhere, but the travel links are very poor, either to Downtown Boston or even to Harvard Square - it's definitely taxis only. The hotel advertised a Shuttle Bus service, but this is really limited and not particularly helpful.

      On arrival, there was a wedding taking place (actually there seemed to be 2 or 3 weddings) and although we had specifically asked for a quiet room we had been put in a room directly next to the party. The staff were actually very good, getting us a room away from the noise, but from the hotel's atrium set-up I think we were one of the lucky ones.

      The room was okay, a bit grotty with a bed that could be folded up into the wall - this compounded our view that this is an events/conference hotel - they probably use the room as a small meeting room when required.

      Overall, probably good for large parties, but not so useful for travellers, tourists or even single business travellers.

      Don't expect too much

      from

      It is a 3 stars hotel, with 3 star price.

      Everything will cost you extra, including

      on-site garage parking, breakfast, etc.

      ... travel Choose Your Own Adventure! What's more, they divide places like Malawi into three key regions and go through each town, park and attraction that you'd want to hit. Is it somewhat presumptuous and prone to creating an artificial backpacker's route? Absolutely. Are the guides themselves aware of this issue? You bet! So if you want some sense of planning, this definitely provides what you're looking for.

We went to a place called Dick’s for lunch, which was a restaurant where the waiters are intentional arseholes to you, and we were given paper hats with phrases written on them (mine was “cries during sex”, a couple of my ...

There is another game in Boston and then the series moves to Chicago (which is coincidentally where we are going next) so we kind of seem like ice hockey groupies now- following the team from city to city!!

      On our second (final) day in Boston we caught the ferry to Salem. It was a lovely ferry ride and we passed many beautiful wooden houses ...
