Fodor's Review

Right next to the Charles River, the certified-green Sonesta has one of the best city skyline and sunset views in Boston. Diners at the in-house restaurants ArtBar and Restaurant Dante can sip a glass of prosecco while watching dusk fall on the boats sailing by. Inside, modern art lines the hotel's hallways, and a friendly, professional staff make this Cambridge riverfront property a bit of a surprise. Also great: an attractive indoor-outdoor pool, 6,000 square feet of refurbished patio dining space, and a restaurant that sources 100% of its ingredients from New England. Guest rooms are done in neutral earth tones, with modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and CD clock radios. The hotel just completed a renovation of all 200 guest rooms in the West Tower–-the updated furnishings, colors, and textures are lovely, just like the expansive views of the Charles River and the Boston skyline. Note to parents: kids 12 and under eat and stay for free in August if you book with a promo code via the hotel's website.
