Well appointed guest rooms
Recent guests said the service didn't match the luxury prices
Sitting on the northern edge of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus, this hotel is a bit far from Boston's most popular sites. However, it beckons to travelers looking for a peaceful atmosphere away from bustling downtown. Plus, the accommodations, appointed with coffee makers, original artwork and complimentary Wi-Fi access, aren't so bad either. And when hunger sets in, you'll have access to Amuse Restaurant along with a versatile array of restaurants within walking distance. But a word to the wise: Le Méridien Cambridge gets a lot of business travelers during the week, so you'll most likely find bargain rates on the weekends. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here. Recent guests said they appreciated the courteous staff at this Le Méridien property, but some encountered maintenance and cleanliness issues in their accommodations.

Critic Reviews



The linens are plush, colors are soothing and the 'tech' amenities are state of the art. Located in a terrific locale; convenient to MIT. A very contemporary design with a bit of funk and lots of comforts.

AAA/CAA Four Diamond Awards 2019



In the lobby and the large, open-kitchen restaurant, Sidney's Grille, cool metal decor is mixed with burnished maple, redwood, and oak.



Contemporary rooms and a great location near Central Square — right on the edge of the MIT campus — make this 210-room boutique a solid upper-middle-range option in Cambridge.
