“A bit pricy, but well worth the location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

The Hyatt Regency is located at the Western edge of MIT's campus and within walking distance of Fenway and Harvard Square.
The parking garage will let you park there for $35 per overnight, but if you are a AAA member they will give you a discount.
I found the staff friendly and helpful as well as just plain nice. There was a conference going on when we got there but unlike many other hotels I have stayed in, we weren't made to feel like we were bothering anyone, or getting in the way.
I have to say that the rooms were lovely, although the ceilings were a bit low.
My only complaint was that the bathrooms had no fan.
Something you should be aware of if you are traveling with a companion.
(awkward)
If I am there again in the futuire I will bring my dog, which will make for a VERY interesting review.

Room Tip: The higher the room, the better the view. Oh, and the Charles views are amazing at night when the ci...

We stayed 2 nights during the Head of the Charles Regatta this October. The price for a room in this hotel was quite reasonable compared to many other high-end hotels, especially considering its location and the very busy weekend. The room was comfortable and afforded a nice view of the river and Boston. The restaurant in the hotel was fine for breakfast and quite good for supper (2 lobster special). All personnel were friendly and professional. I would definitely stay here again.

I was there with my sister and daughter doing a Boston college tour. This hotel was immaculate, great views and conveniently located. I highly recommend this hotel.
The valet was quite pricey though. Definitely do the self park.
The concierge was very helpful in assisting with transportation and local info. The main lobby was beautiful and the staff was friendly.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the Charles River and Boston.

Perfectly located between Cambridge and Boston. Close to Harvard Square, and right on the river, making for beautiful walks and views.

Customer service here is exceptional.

The hotel has a shuttle that takes you to Harvard Square and the subway for drop off and pick up, or a taxi is always nearby. Worth it, as driving/parking in this area is very difficult.

Typical Hyatt Pyramid. River view rooms have incredible view of the Charles for crew and directly across from Fenway. Great location for running/walking along the river. Adjacent to MIT and a mile or so from Harvard. Hotel offers free shuttle to Cambridge hot spots. The gym is about a C with dumbbell rack, a couple of treadmills, an elip, stationary bike atop the for fee parking garage. Recommend getting your exercize outside if possible.
