The hotel is in a good location and that's all I can say about it. It's expensive for what you get. The room we got was very small in the fiorth floor and had a small window. We asked for a room change and gave us the room next to it which had French balcony. The name sounds fancy, but it's just windows which open like a door. The view is not that great, just roofs of other buildings. The bathroom dint have a separate shower area so the whole bathroom gets wet. They told me they had evening turn down service so I asked them for it, but they just made the bed and left.They did not bother to even replace the towels.The breakfast buffet is a joke unless you order something at an extra charge.I really don't understand how this hotel managed to get on the top of tripadvisosr ratings. Maybe cambridge doesn't have hotels in a good location.I would not go there again.On a positive note the front desk staff were helpful .
