We are Hilton honors members and chose this hotel for it’s proximity to MIT. We usually stay in the homewood suites in Arlington which works better for parking if you have a car. We did not rent a car this trip and wanted to stay a little closer to MIT. We decided to walk to campus and so glad we did. It’s a 25 minute beautiful walk along the Charles. The weather in the mid 60s perfect for walking. We would not be walking in colder temperatures.
The hotel is everything it advertises and more. The staff was especially helpful in accommodating us as we arrived early prior to check in. They offered to store our luggage and breakfast. The breakfast was perfect for us after taking an early flight. The choices were plenty including blueberry pancakes and made to order omelets.
The room was large with an expansive sectional sofa big enough to sleep a couple of small kids or 1 adult. We only used the room for sleeping since we were gone all day.
We enjoyed it so much we booked it again for graduation in the spring.
Parking is expensive so recommend u take the Uber and leave the car.
Standard business hotel, but pricey for what you get. Clean and spacious rooms. No advantage being age honors member. Very annoying internet where you have to reconnect all the time. A little outside central Boston
