“Very Good Albeit Difficult Circumstances”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The weekend of May 16th in Boston was graduation for about 10,000 people! No exaggeration. I don't know how many colleges are up there, besides Harvard, Boston U., Boston College, University of Massachusetts, Northeastern, but they ALL had their graduations that weekend.

I was there for my first grandson's graduation from Boston U. I think this is one weekend where all the hotels are full in Boston. Despite that, we had a lovely, clean room (albeit it overlooked the roof of the garage), the buffet breakfast moved smoothly (although we would have been happier with a larger variety of food for the approx. $14 pp), the staff was pleasant. Check-in and out was fast. Overall, I think the Hyatt Cambridge did a fine job.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river. You may not get it but ... SOMEONE has to!

Barbara Z., thank you for your recent review! Boston is a city filled with colleges, universities, and a lot of students and you were definitely here during a busy time in the city! We are so glad that you were able to experience the excitement of Boston during a very fun time, and wish your grandson all the best in his future endeavors! We hope you are able to visit again during a calmer time in the city. Thank you again for your review and we hope to welcome you back, soon! Best, Sarah.

If you are looking for the perfect venue for any Boston adventure, the Hyatt offers all the amenities needed for a perfect stay. Indoor pool, top notch restaurant, superb staff. Rates in Cambridge are much easier on the wallet than downtown Boston - public transportation is steps away.
We've stayed for conferences and down time... both were excellent. Their sales and catering staff are top notch - catering to every need from food issues to cranky guests.

The location of the hotel is good, and not far from the Boston Airport. Rooms are very good. Breakfast is not very attractive, was still fine. People at the reception were very kind. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

We stayed while at a meeting at Hynes convention center which is only 1.2 miles. The rate was outstanding compared to Boston. Our room was very large, clean and fresh looking, The bed and pillows were fine. The coffee maker with Starbucks coffee was the best. Parking is $35 a day valet or self park. Would stay again. Its $35 to have a Charles River view.

I stayed at this hotel this week, and the overall experience was nice.

The hotel was right at MIT, so it's very cool to walk around the university./
I got a room facing Boston harbor, so I got a very nice view of the city.

The breakfast was good, with a very courteous staff.

The one complain: price, including the parking. Even with 35% discount on the parking, paying 20+ dollars was pretty hefty.

The best part of this hotel is the view of downtown Boston! Also, if you are a runner it is perfectly located to run on both sides of the Charles River and the Esplanade. In its time it was probably a fantastic hotel. It is showing its age now. The staff was friendly and the place is clean but it feels old and tired. Also, it is not on the T. It's about a 10-15 walk over the river to catch the green line at BU. However, the shuttle service provided by the hotel is excellent and the drivers are friendly and helpful. They will take you to the T stops and even dropped us off at Fenway.

Room Tip: See if you can get a room that overlooks the Charles River.

We stayed at Hyatt Regency attending a wedding of our friends kid. The best thing about this property is the fantastic view overlooking Boston and the Lake Charles. Even better was the trail by the Lake that is perfect for walking. The rooms are well appointed with timely service. Unlike other hotels, that I have stayed before, parking is right on the property that makes it so convenient. Within walking distance of Mass Ave, there are many restaurants to serve all tastes and even organic food lovers. The store in the lobby is handy for immediate needs. The restaurant is good and above all the location, matters most!

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the lake, its so soothing.
