Best Hotels in Cambridge, Massachusetts
Nestled between the banks of the Charles River, Cambridge sits America’s oldest college town. We like to come here when we’re feelin’ a little bookish. From charming inns with whimsical touches to reno’d digs with access to the action, we know the best hotels in Cambridge.
Home to prestigious Harvard University and MIT, Cambridge is known around the world. However, the Massachusetts town isn’t just for registered students. Whether you’re buffing up on your history at Harvard Square, delving in and out of independent bookstores, learning to kayak on the Charles River or hitting the museums - there’s plenty to learn as a visitor of Cambridge. We’ll take care of the hotel.
Why We Love Cambridge
- Charming hotels: You’ll feel right at home at the hotels in Cambridge. From quaint inns serving up free breakfast to hip mainstays with craft cocktails on lock, we’ll find you just the place you want to stay.
- Co-ed culture: Chances are if you’re visiting in Cambridge you came for the Universities. Or at least wouldn’t mind checking them out (just to say you did). Visiting Harvard is a must. From the iconic red brick to the seemingly endless trees throughout the yard, it’s hard not to get a little giddy about America’s oldest University. If tech is more your thing, trek over to MIT to witness its impressive “great dome” and mingle with some of the country’s smartest young folks.
- History buff: In such a storied place, it’s only natural to be drawn to a museum or two. Lucky for you, Cambridge has some great ones. The Harvard Art Museum was recently reno’d and offers an extensive collection of art from every period of history. If you’re more into botany, check out one of Harvard’s most cherished exhibits - “Glass Flowers.” The collection features over 4,000 glass models, representing more than 830 plant species.
- Row your boat: If you really want to live that Ivy lifestyle, you might consider renting a kayak or canoe on the Charles River. Okay, so it’s not the same as rowing for Harvard - but, hey, same vibe. You can find classes, private instruction, guided tours and more by the river. For the really bold, try stand up paddle boarding.
