    Good 4 star hotel in Cambridge not far from Boston

    This is a good hotel to stay at. Its not far from both central Cambridge and Boston. Rooms are large and well appointed. Airconditioning and internet both work well. Very pleasant to stay in

    Great Hotel

    The Royal Sonestra is a great hotel with good facilities and in a fantastic location. But it’s price is does not justify what you get. And $42 a night for parking is ridiculous. Go across the road it’s cheaper. It also offers Expedia members added privileges which don’t materialise. Great hotel but just doesn’t deliver on the little things. Try elsewhere for these reasons.

    2 star at bwst

    This is by no means a 4 star establishment: dead spiders in the room / ice machine broken / no one answering reception phone / vending machines broken / night receptionist unwelcoming. 3.5 star restaurant. I cannot recommend. Only bright part was Afrim at the front desk.

    Our stay was great! Staff were amazing and very helpful and friendly. Our only issue was air conditioning. It was 73-75 degrees in our room at all times with the AC on high.

    nice hotel but.....

    It is a nice hotel and in a good location, however, no one and I repeat no one, should ever be placed in room 826...ever. It is a super small and very NOISY room as it is located right next to a service elevator...ugh. When we went to the front desk about it they said it is what we paid for...ummm WHAT??!!! They did offer to move us but after an entire day of sight seeing we were too exhausted to move and checking out the next day. Other than that it was a nice place.

    Solid Hotel

    Fun stay with my two sons (age 7 and 10). They loved the pool and I have to say it was great. For the proximity to the city, the pool was a great size. Plenty of room for the kids to enjoy! Room was as advertised and beds were comfy. Staff in the hotel and restaurant aimed to please and within a short walk to public transportation. All in all a great time! The Red Sox sweeping the Yankees didn't hurt either!

    Trip with Purpose

    The hotel is in a great location, the pool is great and the views are amazing. The only challenge is we had a double room, with four of us, and the beds were full size, not queens. But we made due. Plus the chowder from the restaurant is amazing
