About this Hotel

Price From $109

'Hood Near high-tech Kendall Square and MIT, the CambridgeSide Galleria mall, and the Museum of Science, in a neighborhood of reasonably priced ethnic restaurants. Two subway lines are close by, and it's a moderate walk across the Charles River to Boston proper.

The Vibe This hotel gets a lot of business from visitors to Harvard, MIT, and the high-tech businesses of Kendall Square, whose other hotels are much more costly.

Rooms Standard chain hotel–style rooms with contemporary decor and flat-screen TVs. The hotel backs up to a quiet residential neighborhood, and there's a supermarket nearby for guests who want to take advantage of the in-room microwaves and refrigerators. As part of a pilot green program, the hotel uses sustainable products, biodegradable key cards, and thermostats that turn down the heat when there’s no movement in the room; also, leftover soap is collected to be cleaned, processed, and recycled for use in the Third World.

Plus Two words: free parking. Leave your car here and walk or take the T to pretty much anywhere else in Boston and Cambridge. There’s free coffee all day, and cookies for arriving guests. The staff is friendly and enthusiastic.

Minus The hotel fronts a noisy highway, so ask for a room in the back.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes.

Credit Cards Accepted Yes.

Details A room with a king bed from $109, a room with two doubles or two queens from $119, a room with a one-bedroom queen suite from $129.
