Meeting the Friends

... from 2pm-6pm. They recommended a place called Highlands Kitchen to eat at in Somerville so we decided to check it out.

It was so cold and windy today! So we tried staying indoors and some shops and a lot of walking again before deciding to call it a night and have dinner. Highland Kitchen was very good! Their menu made it seem like a diner, nothing fancy, everything traditional and prices were average. However the atmosphere inside ...

... finally home and glad to be there. Red had turned on the air for me so it was cool and that helped. I unpacked and was in bed by 9:30-one tired old lady.

July 11th-Thursday- Lots of things to do and I did a few of them. Later off to the dentist to have the crown put back on my tooth (remember-the night I arrived in Boston and brushed my teeth it had fallen off). They had called me Tuesday to confirm my appt today and when I arrived they said ...

Tea for two?

... they could prepare it blue, truly astounding if they could. We pre-empted the mini steak with calamari and salad nice enough but not outstanding. The steak arrived and it truly was at a push 4 ounces, normally the term noisettes refers to a number of small cuts of meat, this was a “nois” at best a single cube of steak wholly crusted in rosemary and to be fair cooked to perfection. However for possibly the first time ever in the US I needed the sides ...

... Anyway we got help and we got our tickets to board. We definitely looked like tourists....unsure of what and where we were going. We kinda went with the crowd and asked questions! Wish I would have thought to take pictures as we were on the subway I am sure we were something to see.

The train arrived at Boston Commons (the center of town) we had bought tickets for the Freedom Trail Trolley. The ...

... going to Harvard was a fun outing to walk the lawns while hearing some of the history of this prestigious school.  Batter up and off to the Boston Red Sox Vs New York Yankees at Fenway Park we went. Games at Fenway almost always sell out, so if anyone was ever interested in going - plan ahead, lots of people hang about outside wanting to buy tix too.  Wow, what a vibe - even in our nose bleed seats. With the territory comes the douchebags who decide to ...

    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.

    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.
