Great Hotel

Great hotel. Rooms were clean and spacious and staff were very helpful. We had a room that had great views of the river and Boston skyline. The centre of Boston is only a short walk away or easily accessible using the Boston T.

Great Winter Break

Stayed for 6 nights beginning of Feb. Location is excellent, just over the Charles River. Right opposite Cambridgeside Galleria mall and 5 min walk to Lechmere T stop. A very scenic 15 min walk over the Salt & Pepper bridge to the quaint Beacon Hill neighbourhood. Room was very spacious & seemed to have been recently refurbed. Decor was modern and pleasing to the eye. Great bathroom also! Hotel staff couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating, especially during the snow storm. Concierge also managed to find us some great seats for the Celtics v Lakers game. Would definitely recommend the Sonesta to family and friends and wouldn't hesitate to stay again when visiting Boston!

Didn't disappoint

We stayed here for a 5 day break in Boston and chose the hotel, in part, due to the recommendations on this website. We weren’t disappointed. It’s a great location overlooking the river, close the T stop, easy to get to Harvard and next to the Mall. The rooms are a good size and clean but our first room (518) suffered from external noise from an air conditioning unit. When we complained the staff arranged a new room immediately and courteously. The staff on the desk and concierges were always polite and helpful. For those who want a breakfast away from the hotel I would suggest the Mall opposite where you can buy a range of foods from fresh fruit and granola through to doughnuts. The hotel also runs a free shuttle bus to a variety of locations in the City and to Harvard which we found useful when we needed it. Opposite the mall is a stop for one of the hop on hop off tour services. Whilst it may be the most expensive one on offer it’s the most comprehensive and offers a separate tour around Cambridge and Harvard

Sonesta Boston

Great stay, friendly and helpful staff. Art Bar evening menu good, but food a little on the pricey side.

Perfekte Lage für Ausflüge in alle Richtungen.

Boston ist eine überschaubare Grossstadt, mit vielen schönen Parks und tollen Flüssen. Cambridge ubd Harvard sind ebenso sehenswert.

LE TOP

Hôtel moderne,propre, bien situé pour visiter Boston. Les chambres sont très bien entretenues avec une belle vue sur la Charles River. Le personnel est extrêmement sympathique (excepté, et c'est la seule ombre au tableau, un des concierges Pavao qui a oublié de nous dire bonjour pendant tout le séjour !!!!) Merci à Michael pour son aide concernant les mesures de sécurité en cas d'incendie. Tout les hôtels devraient s'inspirer de la qualité fournie par cet établissement.
