Thank you for 5 star!

4 out of 5

Decent, but overpriced.

My stay at Le Meridien was fine. The two very brief times I interacted with staff (check-in and check-out), they were very pleasant. The room was what I expected: it was clean and fairly nice. The only negative was the exorbitant price. The rate I paid was easily three times what it should've been. But you're paying for Le Meridien's proximity to MIT. The hotel was a block away from my daughter's dorm, which was very convenient for my weekend visit. But if I had more time, it probably would've been worth it to stay a bit further out and just take the T.

Excellent hotel!!

Pros: Staff's attentiveness and location.
Cons: Slightly better staffing during meal serving hours at the lobby bar/dining area; The newly remodeled lobby lounge was recently opened but needs more s
Location: Having Asgard's Irish Restaurant across the street is fantastic! Having the adjoining Star Mkt. is great!
Excellent hotel due to friendliness of staff, exceptional food/beverage quality and very attentive bar/restaurant staff. The location is excellent for ease of access to the Cambridge sites, great nearby restaurants and shopping, and short distance from the 4th Of July Charles River viewing of the events. The maid staff are very friendly and attentive to our needs/requests, and the hotel check-in/front desk staff very welcoming and aided in providing directions and accommodations needs. We have been staying at the Le Meridien MIT for the past 8 years and have never been let down. "Mike" at the restaurant/bar provided noteworthy service and very attentive to our needs during our stay, and was very helpful in offering nearby sightseeing and transit tips. We do however, miss "Gabe" who took care of our needs during our prior 7 years of frequenting the hotel's restaurant, but had recently left for another job.

Very nice Cambridge hotel

Pros: Most everything was very nice.
Cons: Parking could be more affordable.
Location: Convenient location for just about everything. Subway, MIT, restaraunts and bars.
Located near central square, very convenient to MIT, the subway, restaraunts and bars. Parking is next door in a garage not affiliated with the hotel and it is pricey. Rooms are nice, beds were very comfy.

Clean, Nice & Quiet Hotel

Pros: Clean, modern, very helpful and courteous hotel staff.
Cons: One of the room we stayed in, has an AC that was a bit too loud. It rattles when it's on.
Location: Super convenient with a grocery store and a covered parking garage right next door. The World best ice cream, Toscanini's is only a block away.
Excellent staff. Friendly, courteous and helpful.
