Enjoyed a one night stay in Cambridge at the DoubleTree Suites. It's likely that this was once an Embassy Suites property, as the open atrium/glass elevator architecture look familiar. A little tricky to find our way into the parking lot - but that's typical Cambridge driving - GPS wasn't great help. Parking is pricey, but also typical Cambridge cost.
The room was great! Booked through the Hilton website, and took the option for a 'subject to availability' reduced rate upgrade for a corner, riverview suite for $30 more? WELL worth the extra cost! View of the Harvard boat house was terrific - and we watched the crews out working hard on Saturday morning.
Bar food was... Ok. Prices? Typical. Service was good, responsive and friendly, though. Enjoyed the breakfast buffet (which was included in our 'bed and breakfast' rate). Front desk staff members were friendly and fun!
There was a drumming convention of some sort the night we stayed - but we had no trouble with noise in the room (10th floor).
Overall - recommended if you're looking for value, comfortable lodgings near the universities. Shuttle is available to take you to Kendall Square, other venues in Cambridge.
