The Le Meridien hotel in Cambridge is a fantastic property located within easy walking distance of MIT, easy access to transit and not too far from Boston or Logan airport. I generally don't select this type of property for a business trip because I don't like the formal, heavy feel of higher end properties. The Le Meridien, however, offered top...

We stayed here while attending the Boston Marathon. The location was within easy walking distance of the finishing area. It is also in the middle of Harvard and MIT with all the surroundings providing a great background for the hotel. The staff was consistently on their "A" game, making sure that your stay was enjoyable. We had requested a late...

We stayed with my son (24) for 3 nights and we were so happy with this hotel. The location is perfect: few meters you have the stop bus to go to downtown Boston ( bus number 1). It takes 8-10 min to get to Prudential Center, and you pay cash in the bus. One super tip ( from a lady...

Lovely hotel in Cambridge, centrally located. Rooms are quite spacious. It's a little dated but otherwise very nice. They have a hotel restaurant - I had both breakfast and dinner here, very convenient. Great quality food with excellent service. It's approximately 20 minutes from Logan airport without traffic. Excellent service from the hotel staff. I'd stay here again on my...

Moderne art, friendly staff, but beds poorly made, torn sheets, bath not thoroughly cleaned (esp. counter and tub), no minibar, Keurig did not work, keys often failed, two guests--one robe, one tea pod. Restaurant and bar overpriced. Front desk and bar understaffed. No street parking, valet $$$. Connected to a grocery store (no wine, beer or liquor). Black out curtains...

Good location, pleasant staff, and nice rooms. Upgraded to a suite which was new and clean with a decent view. Malin + Goetz stuff in the bathroom was a nice touch. It's attached to a grocery store, which came in handy.

It may have an MIT name next to its title; rest assured, I am not on that intellectual level...I do wonder what it must be like to be THAT SMART. As they say in Boston...Wicked Smart.

Wish I could give the hotel negative rating - I have fairly high tolerance, but this is easily the worst, yes, the WORST experience I have ever had with any hotel or even hostels. I signed up for TripAdvisor just to post the review and warn people about this place. Le Meridien Cambridge - MIT sourly disappoints and infuriates me....

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We appreciate your honesty and please know how disappointed we are to hear about your recent experience with us. What you have described is completely unacceptable by our standards. You are right to expect much better from a Le Meridien, and allow me to preface this by assuring you that...
