Hotel's Favourite
This newer hotel was great! Modern rooms, well appointed with small little touches like a subtle night-light under the bathroom sink and an ambient noise generator on the night stand. The staff we interacted with from the front desk to the breakfast area and housekeeping were all incredibly friendly. Parking is ample, and worked out well for our SUV with a bike rack attached. The Green Line train stop is just around the corner which makes it super convenient to get into downtown to visit all the sites. Internet worked well, fast enough for reliable streaming. Note that the Light Rail train wasn't running the week we were there so I can't comment on the noise that may or may not come from the tracks. The train track does run literally outside the windows of rooms on the back of the hotel. If you think this might be an issue, request a room on the front side of the hotel. My only complaint is very minor. There was no luggage rack in the room, so I had to access the luggage from the floor.

I was not aware that there is a Green line train behind this property. So please keep this in mind when booking here. If you are a light sleeper this location is definitely NOT for you. They really don't know how to treat their Platinum Elite customers. Ran out of complimentary water bottles and would not give one from the Market corner as a courtesy and had to run outside at 10 pm to get some water. Upon going in the room, found out that the room is right at the level of the train and the amount of noise it makes it absolutely ridiculous and keep in mind that the train runs till past midnight and the back up again at 5:00 am. Each time the train passes the entire room shakes and you can feel the vibration... Looking at other reviews this is not new and still the property ignores to do anything about it especially when they charge high rates. They can at least invest in sound proofing those rooms which have the issues. Not that the rooms facing the Main Street are any better, as cars go by all night with a lot of noise. At the rates they charge there are a lot of different options in the area which everyone should consider

This is my go-to hotel whenever I am in the Cambridge area. The staff is second to none, the place is kept very tidy, and the location allows easy access to the different parts of Boston/Cambridge. I'll be back in a couple of weeks, and I am certain I will be greeted with a smile!

Definitely the place needs a good clean up. The bed smells just dirty. If you ask for someone to change bedsheets they don't do it every day but still they change the minimum so the smell stays there. The barhroom had hair un the floor from the last guest.

Friendly staff and clean place. Breakfast team made sure the food was fresh and replenished frequently. Running trail close by which leads to parks and Charles river. I would definitely stay there again, if visiting.

This hotel is modern and clean. The layout of this small hotel makes getting around very easy. The front desk staff was very helpful. Their customer service was superb. The lady running the breakfast on Monday did an excellent job keeping up with cleaning and restocking while being very helpful without even being asked.

Good location for us, great staff. Sound machine provided handled any traffic noise. Don't know about side where subway train runs. Breakfast staff and food were good, could use a little more variety. Overall a good value and would stay there again.

My stay at the Fairfield was great! The guest service Agent Kevin was awesome! Check - In process was quick, Kevin greeted me with a warm welcome as asked me what brought me to Cambridge and if there was anything he could do to make my stay better don’t hesitate to ask which I greatly appreciated. I will definitely be returning when my travels bring me back to the Cambridge, MA area.
