Selected this hotel for its location ....near my childhood neighborhood. Did not need to rent a car, took the T and taxis and visited places I hadn't been in years. The hotel is satisfactory but definitely not worth the price.

This Homewood was like any other, but had an added kick. As a Hilton Club member, I accumulated enough points to have a complimentary room on this stay. We usually get a king size bed, but were told on this stay that since we are using points, the price scale changed and our points would only give us a queen...

Unfortunately hotel was undergoing construction during our visit and we cannot give a it fair review. Staff was nice. Fair decor, we probably got the room with the worst view of all rooms on ground floor facing an ugly parking lot.

The location is perfect, the suites are so clean, and the staff are very friendly. I have been in this hotel many times during last four years and I felt like I was at home. I recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to be close to Tufts university.

Typically decent Homewood in a very convenient location (very close to Tufts). They are in the process of renovations and an addition, but the work did not seem particularly disruptive to us. Staff was friendly and helpful when needed, and we experienced no issues or problems. Usual Hilton breakfast fare. One warning, the only parking available is self-parking in the...

They are remodeling and the completed sections look nice. There were a few spots that need to be QC'd mostly with wallpaper bubbling or coming off at a seam. The staff was friendly and helpful and was able to get me an early check-in at about midday. The room was very nice and would be great for a longer stay....

I originally reserved a king bed and when checking my hhonors app a few days before, found out that I had been given a queen. I called to find out there was "no availability" for king, even though I reserved 2 months in advance. The front desk agent said he would note the request but I was skeptical. It turns...

I checked into Homewood Suites for 7-days on a business trip. As a HH Diamond member I spend a lot of time on the road at various Hilton properties. Not all properties are created equal; but, for shear frustration this one takes the cake. I travel with a blacklight and the first room I checked into was disgusting. Besides the...
