Local from Boston

A nice modern hotel with views of the Charles river from the Cambridge side. I love the lovely flower arrangement in the lobby, and they have a nice fitness center and pool. The hotel is within walking distance to Cambridgeside Galleria and the Lechmere T station. There are many meeting rooms in the hotel and there are two restaurants on-site. One of them, Dante, even has $1 oysters every day from 4-6pm and $2 grilled cheese all night on Tuesdays if you sit at the bar!

The hotel and staff are great. I really like the bar too. The hotel is located on the waterfront, which makes for amazing views of the Charles River and Boston Skyline.

San Carlos

The Royal Sonesta is right next door to the Museum of Science and right across the street from the Cambridgeside Galleria, so it's a convenient location for those activities. If you are a runner, you can easily run along the Charles River since it runs next to the hotel. The T stop that it is closest to is a little less convenient, but there are plenty of cabs if you need to get somewhere quickly. The rooms are nice, the hotel lobby has a great bar and lots of places to sit and hang out. The staff is super friendly and helpful.


Morning view from my room! When you wake up next to power, man don't you want all that power.

Pleasant Hill

I enjoyed my stay at the Royal Sonesta. The room was nice, safe, and comfortable and hotel staff couldn't have been nicer. the meeting room for my class was equally pleasant. I also appreciated the walking proximity to "The T", the nice walk (and view) along the Charles River, and convenient access to other Boston/Cambridge sights.

Cebu City

Beautiful lake views.
