Expert Reviews
Though it lacks any Boston flavor -- despite its location on the banks of the Charles River -- the 400-room Royal Sonesta is one of the best deals going in Cambridge.
Fans of this Cambridge chain outpost praise its "family feel", as well as guestrooms armed with "modern touches" and "spectacular" views of the skyline and Charles River.

The Royal Sonesta boasts a prime location on the pathway along the Charles River. Many of the comfortable rooms have river views and public areas are noted for outstanding art works.
