Exceptionally helpful staff. We are very appreciative of Lina in the front desk who was superb in accommodating my son and I with an early check-in after an exhausting overnight flight. We have never encountered anyone like her willing to help anywhere in the US or abroad. Thank you.

Great Room! Great Bed! Walking distance to Fenway Park, just under one mile! Easy getting off and on Mass Pike (I90). The way the room is set up with the bathroom behind the bed was ingenious. I was able to stay in bed undisturbed while my wife was in the shower.

Nice hotel, upscale interior (looked a bit like an Embassy Suites in the lobby area). Room was nice size. We had a river view room for two nights, with awesome view of Boston skyline from Prudential to Fenway. Cross-the-street access to running/biking trail along the Charles. Long walk (25 mins) to Harvard Square, or take one of two on-demand hotel shuttles. Shuttle was convenient, held about 11 passengers, but first-come or wait for the next ride, which was not more than 15 minutes. Walk to Fenway if you are lucky enough to have tickets was 1.5 miles. Hotel restaurant buffet was well supplied and reasonably priced ($18.95 each on Sunday). Hotel staff was unfailingly friendly and helpful every time. No airport shuttle available, but Red Line "T" gets you within a 20 minute walk.

4plus2equals6, Thank you for reviewing your recent stay at Hyatt Regency Cambridge. We are glad to hear that you took advantage of our close proximity to Boston and Cambridge via our complimentary shuttle service! If you enjoyed the view of the Boston skyline next time you stay with us you should ask a front desk associate about Zagster bike rentals so you can explore the Charles River and city of Cambridge on two wheels! Thank you again for your review and we hope to welcome you back, soon! Best, Sarah. qualitybosrc@hyatt.com

Stayed here twice over the summer with my wife and 2 daughters. Food from the restaurant is exceptional, the 4th of July banquet was absolutely out of this world delicious. Service from check in to departure (including but not limited to Kerolyn) was excellent and timely. Hotel offers a free shuttle that can take you to 3 or 4 various locations of interest. I travel a lot, and stay in some nice places. This hotel is a 'must stay' if you are in the Boston area, easy to get anywhere really in the Boston area. Two thumbs and AND 5 stars for this hotel.

We stayed at this Hyatt for the 4th of July celebration in Boston. The room was large and overlooked a well tended flower garden. The staff picked up and dried our clothes after getting drenched on our way back after the fireworks. We enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Corner suites could see the fireworks from their balcony

This rating would be higher if it was merely based on the room. The room was wonderful, clean and spacious. The bed a bit uncomfortable as it sunk in the middle. Most of the staff were incredibly accommodating and polite.

The shuttle is a nice feature should you need it. We chose to walk to Fenway Park and to the museums.

What we found to be lacking was the pool area. Dirty, no towels, and the locker room was very poor from a cleanliness and working order standpoint. The smell was even appalling. Certainly not the quality we have come to expect from a Hyatt Regency.

Hi irunforlife, Thank you for selecting the Hyatt Regency Cambridge for your recent stay in Boston. We appreciate you taking time to review our hotel. I regret that you had a less then pleasant experience in the pool area and that your mattress was not as comfortable as expected. I will certainly pass along your information to our Hyatt StayFit team so that they can ensure all guests have a pleasant experience in the pool area moving forward. Next time you come into town, you should ask the Front Desk about the Zagster Bike rentals so you can explore the Charles River and the city of Cambridge on two wheels! Thank you again for your review and we hope to welcome you back soon! Best, Sarah. qualitybosrc@hyatt.com

Right on the Charles River. Amazing bike/run/walk path with crew teams always on the river. Shuttle service is so convenient. Great views from room with decks or river views. Our housekeeper allowed us to feel right at home and did a fabulous job. Great hotel for working with sports teams...providing a great experience for athletes. Directly across from Boston University and right next to MIT. Fish and chips at the restaurant are awesome. If you enjoy reading, consider upgrading to a room with a deck and sit outside to relax with your book.
