About Le Méridien Boston Cambridge

Definitely not the typically located hotel, Le Méridien Boston Cambridge is located on the MIT campus in the Cambridge area of Boston, near Harvard University, museums, galleries, after performance venues and before Fenway Park. Guests are just one block from Central Square's restaurants and entertainment, and two miles from chic boutiques. Five miles from Boston's Logan International Airport, the Le Méridien Boston Cambridge is a good choice for visitors to MIT and other area universities and Red Sox fans. The Charles River is three blocks away from the hotel where rowers and their families stay during the Head of the Charles Regatta festival each October.

Le Méridien Boston Cambridge
A Happy Return Visit
Second visit to the hotel and as good as we remembered. The welcome is always good, the staff friendly and helpful and the bedroom is very comfortable. Location is great for us as we like a bit of walking and being 1 1/2 miles from Fenway Park it was ideal for our visits there.

Excellent and ideal for baseball fans
Really impressed with the hotel, got a good deal compared to very expensive Boston hotels and still managed to access everywhere on foot. Its less than two miles to Fenway Park so an easy enough stroll if you're quite fit and a similar distance to downtown with good restaurants and bars nearby...really liked it and would definitely go back

Le Méridien Boston Cambridge
I booked accommodations for 3 and they "overbooked" the suite. I had to argue with them in order to get a rollaway bed. The room was over 600 dollars. I wouldn't have booked a suite if I was just going to have a rollaway bed.

Outstanding property and service
The hotel itself is pristine- clean, updated, comfortable and functional. Great bedding, towels, hot water, make up lighting and mirror, Keurig in room, etc. Very quiet neighborhood. Excellent service from everyone I encountered. From going out in the rain to find me a cab, getting my buffet breakfast coupons for me and MOST important the night manager printing my very long presentation/paper for my graduate class at the nearby institution. Great staff. Just super helpful and professional. Breakfast was very good, bar was very good, office functions great.Plenty of room to work with colleagues. Free WiFi.
