Stayed just overnight and the room was nothing special although they did offer a "one-time" free night of Internet Access. The restaurant was horrible on several counts. Lunch took 40 minutes to arrive (burgers and chicken sandwich) and, after complaining about the delay, the waiter took 50 % off the bill. The next morning's buffet was nothing special except for the price - $17.95 each - for eggs bacon, omelets. french toast and assorted fruits, cereals and muffins. Overnight parking was $35 although you can save $10 with a Senior (over 65) discount, which seemed to be the best discount available. Cab ride to Downtown Boston was about $12

I booked thru Priceline and obtained a well priced 1-night stay. I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival to learn of the on-site parking garage which was even discounted given my AAA card. Property was beautiful and well maintained; views from my 14th floor room were excellent. In room breakfast frittata was great, however free Internet for only 15mins was rather annoying. Free shuttle to anywhere local was a pleasant surprise.

Daren, thank you for the comments regarding your recent visit to Boston. We’re so happy that you enjoyed your stay and that the room service frittata was able to start your morning off right. Next time you stay, try the New England Breakfast Wrap with local, Vermont cheddar. It’s delicious. We hope to see you again soon!

This Hyatt hotel is adjacent to the MIT campus and overlooks the Charles River and Boston skyline. Parking is $35 for 24 hours; it's $25 if you have a AAA discount card. To make up for the fact that it's not too close to public transportation, the Hyatt offers a shuttle service to Harvard Square. The staff was friendly and the rooms were clean and modern.

We had never been to Boston and headed up there to take our high school daughter on some college tours (BU and BC). Never having stayed there we searched through many hotels and decided on the Hyatt due to its location and its relative reasonable cost. We initially were going to stay in Boston near the wharf or near Boston University but since this wasn't really a vacation we were willing to sacrifice a bit on location to save a few dollars by staying across the Charles river in Cambridge. What we discovered was a great hotel in a great location. The Hyatt proved to be anything but a compromise. Upon check in, Robert (Bobby) the desk clerk, advised us we were given a discount for parking our car and he was able to upgrade our room at no cost. We had a room with a fantastic view of the city. The room, including the bathroom, was very clean and the furnishings in great condition. Our TV had a grainy picture (turns out this is the case with the 'hotel' channels which doesn't make sense) but the regular channels were fine. We could not access the regular stations so we called maintenance and they promptly sent Bill to our room to troubleshoot. Turns out we were not operating the remote correctly but Bill gave us a free movie rental for our troubles! In fact, the entire hotel staff was eager to help us. We ate breakfast in the restaurant and the buffet was very good. The gentleman at the omelet station was not only experienced but entertaining as well. The Hyatt is located right on the river across from Boston University. The hotel provides a shuttle for this but since the weather was great when we went so we elected to walk over the bridge to BU (about a 15 min. walk). We did take the hotel shuttle to Harvard Square on night to have dinner. We would definitely stay at this hotel if we return to Boston. My only negative comments are; they charge $13/day for internet connection, there's no mini fridge, and the hotel TV channels were fuzzy but overall a Great experience!

Room Tip: Rooms on the East and South side view the city.
