Radisson Hotel - Cambridge: "On the Charles River" Boston Hotel Tip by TempNomad

Boston Hotels: 311 reviews and 300 photos


We got the hotel through Hotels.com for $109. We had a balcony with a view of the Charles and the room was lovely. It had a king sized bed and was on the 11th floor, so the view was really great.

The hotel has a Greek Restaurant and a Japanese Steak House on the premises. A Trader Joe's is next door, and we walked to Harvard Square for dinner. It took us about 20 minutes, along the Charles' park-like walkway.

Unique Qualities: We didn't visit the pool, but the facilities seemed clean and the lobby had several very comfortable areas to wait for other people, or just to relax.

In the morning, we left late, so we didn't get a chance to take advantage of the coffee/tea area provided. It was pretty basic. We had made coffee in the room, but it was just okay. Never enough sugar, and the creamer seemed like it had been through a lot. Good thing there's a Peet's in the Harvard area!

Address: 777 Memorial Drive
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: It's right on the Charles, on Memorial Drive. There's a Hyatt a ways down, and the DoubleTree is across the River.
