Checked in after midnight due to work; Dina (front desk) was wonderful, kind, accommodating. Room was really nice, slept like a log, great shower, nice products...asthetically pleasing furnishings. Wireless a bit tiresome. Breakfast (at 8 a.m.) was jammed and running out of coffee, couldn't even get near the food for the crowd.
Appreciated the sharing of the cab with a handsome gentleman from Jacksonville who was headed to the financial district: I am just realizing I probably got taken (again) by the cabby who then dropped me off the airport, as I never asked if the gentlemen had paid for the entire ride, which I am sure he did. Never does a good deed go unpunished. Shame.
Hotel was great, close to airport, staff very accommodating, especially under dire circumstances (no air conditioning in lobby/front desk area). Thank you.
Cambridge’s celebrated universities, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard, take full advantage of the scenic Charles River. Harvard Square, at Massachusetts Avenue and Brattle Street, is a hotbed of activity, both intellectual and otherwise. Down the road, Central Square supports a lively music scene. Young bohemians trend toward neighboring Somerville, north of Cambridge.
