My daughter and I stayed at the hotel during a college visit to Boston. Our visit coincided with the Head of the Charles which was a plus because the vistas from the lobby, room and on any floor you stayed allowed guests to enjoy the regatta sights. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The shuttle to and from Harvard and Kendal Square was a plus, no parking or driving headaches.
I only stayed one night. I wish I could have stayed longer. Charles river out front. Whole foods around the corner; trader Joe's in the back! convenient on Memorial drive and the mass pike is very close. I was not expecting to pay for parking, however when I got there I found out it was $32. I think there is street parking there so I would check that out next time. There is a pool on the fifth floor and I used it and it was very nice. There is also a gym room which I did not get to use but it looked really good.
Don't even consider the Hampton inn down the street. Holiday inn is less expensive and recently renovated with fridge/microwave in the rooms and much cleaner/newer feel. Best stay for your dollar in Cambridge.
