Stayed here a recent Friday and Saturday night while visiting college student daughter. Location was perfect, relatively close to T stop. Also across street from Cambridgeside Galleria, where we went for breakfasts. (We did get coffee from the shop in the hotel). The room was clean and spacious. Bed comfy. We were in the east wing with river view. Enjoyed...

I ran the Boston Marathon this year, and my wife came along to cheer me on. We chose the Sonesta because it was just a couple of miles from the expo and finish line and it was a relative bargain compared to the other hotels that week.

This is comparable to a Courtyard Marriott. The soundproofing is horrible. Ineffective staff, not empowered to do much. Inconsistent experience every time I come, which is every other week. Not a customer friendly place. Wait staff in restaurant is poor (eg don't interrupt customer when talking or eating, or force customer to publically state room number - privacy anyone?). Computer...
