I was happily surprised with the size of the rooms and the wonderful view of the Charles river. The staff were very helpful. I got a rental car in less than 10 minutes and with minimal formalities throughout the hotel concierge. The shuttle services to Harvard and to Copley Square proved very reliable. And the jazz club on the second floor is one of Boston's best so my stay was really very enjoyable

Friendly staff, nice location, big room, fairly clean, and the Boathouse 400 restaurant had very good food and service for breakfast. However, my room needed repairs or renovation: the sink was ready to fall off, wallpaper coming off, closet door broken, carpets and furniture worn. Also, no in-room breakfast service.

Our room was very clean. Bed is very comfortable. We got the upgraded breakfasts for $6 each and they were phenomenal. My only complaint is the shuttle only goes to three places. It does not go to Fenway. We had to take a taxi. Who goes to Boston and not go to Fenway?

Great location, views of the Charles river are amazing! Rooms are clean and great amenities. Only down side is the parking fee $35 overnight and that's with you staying at the hotel. I think they should rethink the amount charged to hotel guests for parking. Breakfast buffet was good and staff was super friendly.

Very good experienced. I will recommend it to my friends and relatives whenever they are going in this area. Or recommend to join the HHonor club. The place is nicely located and the view is fantastic. It so nice to watch the different activities in Charles river, people jugging, bicycling and boat rowing, etc. In the restaurant, the service is good and the food is delicious. Worth staying.

My room, 1502, was quite lovely with a nice view of the river and the city. My pre-ordered extras - another blanket and extra towels - were waiting for me. However, This room is called a "King Suite." The bed is actually a queen sized bed.

We have stayed in a bunch of Hilton hotels. For the price of this one, I am not impressed. First, the key card did not work very well. We had the keys reprogrammed 3 or 4 times before realizing the problem was with the lock on the door that only worked intermittently. We walked across the bridge that spans the highway to go to Dunkin Donuts/Starbucks. It was a little dicey crossing the road at the hotel with all the traffic.

The hotel is fun, and in a prime location. Parking and shuttle services are excellent. Make sure you get the breakfast deal-otherwise it is way overpriced. The suite was spacious, the King bed was small- the couch pullout was hard as a rock. The staff smoked in the closets of the pool room, making it extremely smelly in the pool area. I wish the upper deck was open during the fine weather we had- It would have been nice to hang out up there. I was on the 15th floor and sleeping was quiet.

Walking distance to Cammbridge Hotel shuttle to beautiful Boston downtown. Just keep your car in the Hotel connected parking garage. Explore all the city by walking the red brick walk or ride with the hop on hop off trolleys. Enjoy shopping in the Quincy Market area. Don't eat or drink to much while walking the market. With the number of public restrooms provided, as a woman you have to calculate at least a 25 minute wait to go.

There are some really big plus points about this hotel. Whilst it is located in something of a desert, there are very short hops to both Cambridge (Harvard) and downtown Boston.

Unlike other Hilton properties tea and coffee are not free in the lobby ($2-4.00), there are no newspapers provided. They have hot soup in the lobby but beware for half a paper cup it is $8.00 (expensive). The room was quiet from internal noise but I was on a main road and it sounded as if there were racing cars under my window. This hotel is isolated - you would not feel like taking a stroll in neighboring streets. They have all suites which contributes to a quiet atmosphere.

We were there for the Flug Tag event in Boston. The hotel is clean and the staff extremely friendly. It wasn't near a whole lot that we were interested in doing and took a cap to Quincey Market and the Harbor. The suites are great. The lounge area is separated from the bed room by the bathroom. There is also a refrigerator and microwave. I used the pull out bed and it was very comfortable but you could hear ever single noise in the hallway from the elevator dinging to the doors slamming. ... Read more

This hotel was amazing and clean. The staff was beyond helpful and kind during our 2 night stay. Room was to die for with an amazing view! Perfect location to stay. Harvard/Harvard Square one way (about 3-5 minute drive) and downtown Boston to the right (another 5 minute drive give or take). Great location and view of the Charles River.

I booked a large Suite 6 weeks prior to my arrival with a non-refundable rate through Hilton Honors. This 786SF Suite was "Guaranteed" yet when we arrived, the Manager told me that my Suite had been sold to someone else days before our arrival. Well he thought it was ok to just give me 2 non connected small rooms even though mine was guaranteed. I had no choice than to accept his offer because they had my money and all area hotels were sold out.

Arrived late afternoon, taxi fare from airport around $35USD.... Room clean and very quiet. Although we didn't have a river view it was a really quiet room (617) with lashings of hot water for baths and showers, and clean bedding and towels each day. The huge bed was extremely comfortable and we slept very well each night we were here... Quick walk straight up River St (no more than 5 mins) and you'll find the local students supermarket and a really good pharmacy too if required. Another 15 mins... Read more

I was booked at The DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Boston Cambridge for two nights - Saturday and Sunday. I had to change to Friday and Saturday. When I went to make the change I understood that the Friday night would probably cost more than the Sunday. This was true but the problem came when they wanted to charge me an extra $100 for the Saturday night which was already booked. This is unacceptable so if there is any chance you might book the wrong night or need a change DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL.... Read more

Our room was over looking Charles river. We ran in the morning along the river. They have great shuttle service staffs that pick us up and drop us off outside the regular shuttle schedule and routes. Our daughter goes to Boston University, we would definitely use this hotel again.

I could not be more surprised by how friendly and nice the staff was here. Starting with the front desk person, Cory! She was amazing!! She went out of her way to make checkin a breeze for me! and included a nice extra something to make my day. Then they follow up with a text to make sure everything is good with your room! Then the 3rd floor bartender was also Amazing!! great conversation and she was very accomodating with my orders and drink of choice! The room was nice and bedding was comfy!!... Read more

Right from the time you enter the property, everything seems so well orchestrated. The checkin is smooth, rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable. Breakfast spread is limited, but good. Hotel is close to Cambridge and i think they offer shuttle services too.

As a loyal Hilton brand person, I selected this hotel due to it's proximity to Harvard Square. Unfortunately, it didn't meet the Hilton standards that I'm accustom to. The lobby and restaurants were fine, staff excellent, rooms mediocre and need of updating. Our AC vent vibrated and was very loud, we had a less than clean balcony - which in and of itself was worthless and view of empty industrial lots. The room was clean enough, however.

We stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed the free shuttle for exploring the city. A big thank you to Tony for answering all of our transportation questions. He emboldened us into using the T and Uber for some of our traveling needs. Our rooms were connecting and the corner room provided fantastic views of the river. We enjoyed drinks on the rooftop bar one evening and at the 3rd floor bar, Fusion, while we availed ourselves of the laundry facilities. The bartenders were very friendly and provided... Read more

I stayed here for 3 nights on a recent business trip. The hotel was clean, quiet and the staff everywhere (front desk, restaurants/bar) were very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and had a nice view of the river and the complementary wifi was excellent. For what you get, the rooms are very overpriced, but that's reality in any major city in North America.

Enjoyed my stay at the Doubletree. I chose it because of the hotels recommended by my conference, it was the least expensive. I liked the suite, and the room was nice. My events were in Harvard Square so i was going back and forth by uber or taxi. In the end, I'm not sure I saved money because of the back and forth, but there was nothing disappointing about the property. Good cookies, nice, professional service.

My experience was dismal. I checked in to the hotel and my stay started by not receiving any free water even though as a preferred member I should have received them - figured maybe this was just the hotel policy. I get to my room or suite and it has 2 single size beds. I don't think they were even twin size beds because they were really that small! I've never stayed in a hotel that gave you single size beds because obviously they are very uncomfortable to sleep on. I'm on the smaller size ... Read more

Rooms are dated, but the staff is nice and the lobby was nice. Rooftop was booked for a private event so we couldn't enjoy it and weren't told before. Taxis were always in front to pick you up to go wherever which is convenient.

This hotel used to be a Coca Cola plant in a previous existence. On one side is the Charles river and many of the rooms feature nice views of the river. On the other side though is a railway yard and a chemical plant. There is really nothing around there. Harvard square is about a mile away. Central square in Cambridge is just under a mile which is where the nearest subway stop is located. To compensate for this, the hotel runs free shuttle service to several different destinations.

We stayed one night here and found the staff very helpful, available, and professional. Our room was just right for 3 (king room with sofa). Room very clean with a great view of the Charles. It is not near the T so if you plan on using public transportation in Boston, this is not for you. They do have shuttles, but we did not explore that option. It was a good location for a quick college visit to Boston University. It is not walking distance to BU and parking at BU is in short supply so we t... Read more

Nestled at the intersection of two highways, this hotel is overpriced and it under delivered. The rooms are low quality and not much better than a Holiday Inn express. OK if you have business in the area, but I felt like I paid 2x the market and received .5x the value. Find another place. Also, they charged $35/day for parking. This is Boston, not Tokyo!!!

I have stayed here a couple times on business now. Boston is a very difficult place to find a good hotel. The pros are this place tends to have capacity and is reasonably close. The pool and hot tub are fantastic even though it looks older. The temp is excellent though and it has a shower to clean off before and after. The breakfast buffet at Boathouse is also excellent. Paying for decent coffee by the check in at the lobby is silly on their part. Free 24 coffee please, thank you. The room does ... Read more

Loved Cory at the front desk! She went out of her way to meet our needs! The breakfast we were provided as a Gold member was not as one would think. Fruit and pastries only...had to pay extra to get hot food. The shuttle service is a bonus. Only recommendation would be to provide airport pickup and drop off services!

I would stay here again anytime. The views are breathtaking. It is a great location. Service was quick and nice. The hotel is nice. A bit old looking but spotless clean. My only complaint is the noise coming from the highway. It is something I needed the get used to and the jet-lag didn't help. Food was decent but a bit hard to figure out what was actually open on a Sunday. Nevertheless, it was one of the best hotels I stayed in. I'd recommend it!

I enjoyed my stay at the doubletree suites. The rooms were very clean. The living room was comfortable with a flat screen TV, sofa and table. The bedroom was cozy and lovely. The bathroom was very clean. The location was on the Charles river which was convenient to stores and taking walks along the river. At check in, the staff greeted me with a warm chocolate chip cookie which was an added touch. Overall, I recommend this hotel for the wonderful staff, great location and cozy rooms.

My teenaged son and I recently visited Boston and stayed at the Doubletree. The room itself was comfortable. The sofa bed was ok. The location is good if you have a car. It is not in a pedestrian friendly location. It is not near a "T" stop. Another inconvenience, the in house restaurant is not open on Sunday and Monday nights. You have to eat in the lounge. There is no restaurant open for lunch. I won't stay there again because of the inconveniences

Loved the room and location. The shuttle transport to downtown Boston and Harvard Square is very convenient, but wish they had more schedules. Only problem was the two day stay was done with two different rates so it was two different confirmations. However, I was assured that they were linked and was NOT going to have any problems. Called few days before to ensure, but unfortunately it was an issue. Firstly, we have a package rate for the two days with garage and breakfast, and we were on... Read more

The price charged ($350) should have included parking, which was $35. While I was provided the signature cookie, the price did not equate to the quality. Also, used sheets were on the pullout. For $350, is it asking too much to have clean sheets?

Adequate, nice rooms/suites which included a separate sitting/lounge area and dining table. I can see that as useful if I was staying there for longer, especially if I had family with me and if we didn't want to eat out. The restaurant/bar had good food and a good selection of spirits but was quite expensive. The location is not bad if you have a car, but parking is extra.

Visiting Cambridge Massachusetts wouldn't be complete without a visit to the world renowned Harvard University. If you are dreaming of someone you know going there or you just want to visit the historic campus it is worth a visit.
