I stayed here for 4 nights whilst on business in the offices nearby. The room I stayed in was spacious enough, had airco, a large double bed, 32" flat screen television,fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. The room was clean and tidy throughout my stay and the bed was comfy so I didn't really suffer with too much jet-lag...

Recommended on the Harvard college visit site. Ask for the Harvard discount. Provides a free shuttle to and from Harvard. Hotel is nice with complimentary breakfast. Starbucks is attached if you want to pay up for something else.

This hotel is further out of Boston yet a bit more affordable. Near Harvard, it's surrounded by historic buildings and things to see. There's a Whole Foods right behind the hotel which is convenient. There was some construction in the area and this impacted traffic.

Stayed here numerous times over the last 4 years. It is a very well run hotel compared to others I've stayed in. The beds are very comfortable, the food is plentiful and good. Everyone is pleasant and helpful and it is close to the T.

We stayed 3 nights while touring the city. 1km walk to subway or free shuttle. Great sized room, excellent staff and good breakfast. Liquor and grocery next to the hotel. We walked to hazard square which is a must. We'd stay again, Highly recommended!

I would have liked this hotel for the shuttle to T stations alone, but the staff made my stay extra wonderful. Everyone was beyond courteous - they were genuinely warm, caring, helpful and efficient. For a senior traveling alone, this was quite a bonus. The shuttle will take you either right up the road to the Alewife station on the...

Our first stay at the Hotel Tria. This Hotel was recommended by friends who stayed there several times in the past. Happy to say they chose well for us. This hotel is economically priced (a.k.a. within our budget range) but offers some great emmenities. The room we stayed in was spacious offering two double beds, 32" television, mini-fridge, large table,...

Modern, clean and very good staff. A very nice place to stay if your are visiting Boston. T Stop is a seven minute walk from the hotel on the Red Line. They also offer a free shuttle service if you need it. Included breakfast was very good.

I didn’t love much about this hotel, but I liked EVERYTHING. Nice folks. Quiet rooms. Sufficient parking. Good breakfast (especially the scrambled eggs). Good bed. Fine shower. Wifi worked well. I feel funny giving a 5-rating when there was nothing really special. I guess the special thing is that they do a good job all around.

The location is out of the way but the hotel offers a free shuttle to Harvard Square every hour. The staff was very professional. The room was comfortable and well appointed. The free full breakfast was good but nothing out of the ordinary (eggs, sausage, toast, waffles, cereal yogurt).
