Du Vin is a relatively new arrival in Cambridge, so the place is fairly nice and modern. However, they cut a few corners with the modernisation (for example, why still use keys with enormous key tags instead of more convenient electronic swipe cards??). The rooms are fairly sizeable but make sure you ask for a large and quiet room when you book, as not all rooms are of good size and some of them are near the cigar shack (which can get quite loud) or facing the road. Staff are professional and friendly. Perhaps the cleaning staff could do a better job (there seemed to be a lot of them always around the place, yet one day I left the room at 7 am and returned at 3 pm and the room wasn't even made!). The adjacent bistro serves good food for dinner. Breakfast is good without being outstanding. The downstairs bar is a really nice place to hang out, and the bar staff is very friendly and professional. Parking is only via valet and charged extra. Internet is wireless and free. Rooms have silly wine names instead of numbers, which makes it a bit annoying to find rooms, but I'm being picky. The location is ok, minutes away from everything. By the way, the only other two hotels I would stay at while in Cambridge are the Hilton and Crowne Plaza. :)
