Great hotel A review of Le Meridien Cambridge - MIT
This is a great hotel. The lobby is very attractive, with a couple of MIT robots on display and two public internet terminals. The rooms are very nice and well appointed. We had a great view of the Boston skyline from our window. My wife was particularly excited about the Aveda amenities. The rooms also has a Bose Wave Radio as the clock radio. The bathroom was very nice with a trendy Kohler sink.
The hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. I requested a refrigerator for our room at check in and they brought one to my room within 5 minutes at no charge. There is a very good breakfast buffet in the morning for about $13 in the adjoining restaurant. The staff in the restaurant was also very friendly despite the fact that my one year old dumped a couple plates of food on the floor.
There is also a supermarket right next door to the hotel which was great for stocking our fridge. The location was not as bad as I expected. It is on the edge of a MIT research center, near the corner of Mass Ave and Main Street. There were plenty of good restaurants within walking distance and the hotel was about a 5-6 block walk from the subway.
I would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Cambridge. Check the hotel web site for "web only" reservation specials. This hotel is part of the Hilton family and recognize Hilton Honors status.
