Actual hotel not like photos at all...outdated...needs refurbishment Very basic and outdated room small bathroom Location not good
The room size was great. The hotel is well located (.5 miles from the Alewife metro station) and prices are reasonable for the area.
It would be nice to have a phone in each room.
The young vibe ( I am not young ). Spaces to work, books on shelves, pool table at bar etc.
Bath plumbing is crummy. Looks all modern, black, fancy, but parts fall off and the shower head wouldn't completely turn off, while I was taking a bath. Also, it's way out in the boondocks. Which is of course, why it is not --- $ a night.
I called ahead to make sure they knew we were bringing our pet in case a specific room needed to be held, they were very polite and helpful. I also had questions about parking since it is Cambridge and we were moving our daughter so we had a truck and trailer, again he was very helpful and just happened to be in the parking lot when we arrived and let us know where it would be okay to park without inconveniencing other guests. Also, we took advantage of the hotel service while we were there, there was not a huge meal selection but we all enjoyed our meals and drinks. We really appreciate a pet-friendly business and we felt our furry child was welcome, thank you for that!
Absolutely nothing was complimentary, not breakfast, not parking, not even coffee in the morning unless you consider the 2 Kcups in the room complimentary which, by the way, were not replenished after our first morning there. I inquired at the desk about the coffee as I was taking our dog out for his early morning walk and was rather brusquely told that there was coffee available but it was not free, neither did he volunteer that there is a Dunkin Donut just half a block to the left, which I discovered as I walked the dog.
The property was modern looking but was definitely an old building.
The rooms smelt terrible of smoke even though it was a nonsmoking room. I booked for the night of and called in advance to see availability and they were extremely rude on the phone and told me to come in to book Hilton’s Honours. Got to the hotel as last resort place, and it definitely felt like a last resort as the service was absolutely terrible and rude and the room smelt like smoke.
