Homewood Suites by Hilton Boston Cambridge-Arlington
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Arlington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 August 2014

We had medical needs in Boston over a four-week period and Homewood Suites made an otherwise difficult situation absolutely comfortable. The staff are very friendly. The rooms are clean and nicely appointed. The bed linen was clean, ample and comfy. The hotel rate also includes a full breakfast buffet and complete dinner. Breakfast is very good but dinner is less consistent. Still, it was a great place to grab a quick bite before heading out to Boston nightlife. Great hotel! Convenient to all transportation and sites.

If yo are visiting Boston or Cambridge - and don't mind taking the T - this is a good value. It is a 10 minute walk to the T. There are also a number of very good and inexpensive restaurants near to the hotel. Only issues are (1) a minimal fitness facility; and (2) an air conditioning system that is unmanageable and can lead to cold air blowing in you at night in bed- no matter what temperature is set.

Thank you for your review, my apologies that there was an issue with AC, that certainly is something we would like to change on a future stay. Please let me know if you plan to return. It was kind of you to still point out the positives as well. I hope you will give us a chance to make your next stay all positives.

We were looking for somewhere close to Cambridge for a business trip. Great price for being close to Cambridge and the T. Also has a great restaurant next door (Menotemy?) and it is also close to a great walking/biking trail.

Overall, this is a wonderful arrangement. It would be nice if there was closer Grocery Shopping and Public Transportation, there isn't any. Housekeeping is Slow and Inefficient. Breakfast can be Cold and the Variety a bit monotonous. The Room AC's are terribly inefficient. Bathroom plumbing (Tub Drains, etc) are dreadful!

Intelligent and helpful college kids working the desk. Great with directions and helping to navigate Boston bus and T routes for destinations. Room was amazing, clean, well equipped and all in great condition and working order. It was just my daughter and I doing a day in Boston but Homewood was above and beyond our expectations. We wanted to stay longer and utilize the suite lol. Great location. parking awesome. Restaurants and pubs right across the street! Loved it.
