3 star hotel
Area: Coolidge Corner, Brookline
0.86 mi from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Best Rooms: There isn't too much in the way of views, as the hotel is surrounded by buildings, but rooms facing Webster St. on floors 7 - 8 are your best bet for a view of the city.
3.5 star hotel
Area: Cambridgeport, Cambridge
1.54 mi from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
Best Rooms: For a good view of the river, request a room facing west on floors 10 - 16.
Best Rooms: Queen rooms are located in three different areas of the hotel. Some of the rooms offer lovely views of Copley Square, while rooms in the center of the building don't have views, but are much quieter.
Best Rooms: Located next to Berkeley St., Berkeley Residence is surrounded by equally tall buildings, so you won't find any great views.
Best Rooms: The One Bedroom Suites located on the corners, with room numbers ending in *32 (e.g. 1432, 1532) and the Junior Suites ending in *73 (e.g. 1473, 1573), offer the best views of the Castle at Park Plaza and Columbus Avenue. Rooms facing Columbus Avenue offer great city views. The Junior Suites located on the corners offer views of St. James Avenue and the John Hancock Tower, which are spectacular at night.
