We stayed at the Hotel Tria over Thanksgiving. We chose the hotel because it was a modest walk to the Alewife MBTA station (or you can take the hotel shuttle) and because we were hoping to walk some of the Thanksgiving meal off on the trails around Fresh Pond right across the street. It is also just a short drive... More

This hotel is located on a busy rotary. If you are driving, its exit the wrong place from rotary, and it can then be a real challenge to get back into traffic. Beyond that, this place is fine, if expensive on a busy night for what you get. The rooms are clean and adequate. Good desk set up for the... More

First thought was a new hotel that is how clean it was. Rooms are spotless with great bedding. Each room has a fridge and microwave. Breakfast has a long wait for tables, better for a grab and go. if you on a hurry. They charge for parking, if you book through the website parking is free.

With this hotel on Concord Ave at Alewife Brook Pkwy, it is close to Alewife T station and easy to get into West Cambridge via car OR walking. It is ~40 minutes walk to Harvard Square, ~35 to Davis or Porter. The hotel is pet-friendly but they have a +$20/day ($100/wk) pet rate and a pet policy that you have... More

I live in FL and travel to Cambridge for work every month. I've stayed here 5 different times in past year. For the most part, they do a good job. The staff is courteous and responsive. The rooms are always clean. The beds are fairly comfortable, and there's little outside noise. I had to cut my last trip short after... More

Nice little hotel. Good breakfast included. Right next to a shopping center. Very clean, worth the price. We were a group of 100 people travelling for a gymnastics meet in MIT. Nice neighborhood.

Loved the location. Shuttle was available to Harvard Square and the train station. (We often walked to the station) Strip Mall behind the hotel was great to get a quick bite to eat. (Whole Foods, McDonalds and even a small cinema.) Very convenient to get everywhere you wanted in Boston by train.

We visited Boston during peak foliage so the hotel prices in Boston were too expensive and we needed a place to park our rental car. I was very pleased with our stay here. A 10 minute walk to the red line (it's at the very end of the line so you can't get confused going into Boston or coming back)... More
