    Would stay here again if ever in Cambridge. Convenient position along with friendly staff are the reasons we appreciated it. A nice view from the window. Our kudos go to waiter for the hospitality...

    The location was great! Beautiful views of the Charles River and convenient to Boston and Cambridge centers

    There was no coffee cup provided with the coffee maker - rendering the machine unusable, since it requres one. A small inconvenience, but when you arrive at a place late at night, hoping to set up a first cup of coffee in the morning, it's annoying. Also, the room service is outrageously expensive - $13 for a small pot of coffee?? Come on!

    Comfort, location and ease in getting around the city from the hotel (the shuttle and access to Lechmere Station) heated pool,spa and health club, beautiful and eclectic art pieces, comfortable seating throughout the lobby, gourmet dining at the ArtBar and especially the outstanding wait service and flavorful menu served to our Family Reunion on Christmas Day made our stay extremely memorable.

    One of the best hotel choices in Cambridge, especially if you have meetings in the Kendall Sq area. Downtown is in walking distance if you don't mind a 20 min stroll. Great value for money.

    The room service was great, the location was good, a nearby mall, not far from the subway, highly recommended.

    The location was perfect--settled between the green and red T lines. The view from our room was spectacular. Also, the room was extremely comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

    It was the last minute decision to go to Boston for us. Royal Sonesta was the blessing for us to have for that decision. It has the great location right next to river trail, convenient mall across the street, Museum, and river cruise. Each morning, drinking a cup of coffee while looking down the river was such a sweet experience. We enjoyed Boston so much. We definitely stay there again if we visit Boston next time.

    I wish I got the room I expected in the first place. But, staffs were very accomodating and changed a room as I requested. After that, I was very satisfied.

    Location was fantastic and I loved looking out at the water each morning and evening. I was upgraded to a larger bed and room when registering, which was greatly appreciated. We enjoyed shopping and eating at the Galleria and the close proximety of the Trolley Tour stop. The free shuttle service was also a bonus when it came to site seeing, I would come back and would recommend to friends. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Cambridge.
