This East Coast hotel recently completed a renovation of all 237 guest rooms, re-evaluating decor for functionality, simplicity and a modern design that reflects the spirit of both Cambridge and Boston. Wave-patterned blue carpet mimes the Charles River, which guests can also admire from their abodes—all guest rooms boast floor-to-ceiling windows—and literary nods harken to the area’s academic history. The property plans a like-minded revamp of the common areas, lobby and meeting spaces in Phase Two.
