We've stayed here many times over the past 14 or 15 years, most recently during Hurricane Sandy. The location is a little odd, just as the end of the Mass Turnpike on the Boston side, but the hotel does have a free shuttle into Cambridge until the early evening. Otherwise with tip, a taxi or Uber ride to Harvard Square is $8 to $10, depending on route and traffic.
We spent two nights here last week and overall had a good stay. The hotel has renovated the lobby and some other areas, but so far as we can tell beyond new carpets the rooms are about the same as ever. Breakfasts are good (the continental version is free for Gold and Platinum Hilton Honors members).
The a/c in our room couldn't quite do the job, especially in the bedroom. We've found that problem here before at some other Doubletree and Embassy Suites properties. We also had problems with the wi-fi -- our devices just would not stay connected.
Overall, not a bad stay, but .maybe it's time for Hilton to invest some big bucks in this property to make it truly first-class.
