This posh business hotel near MIT and the Museum of Science also appeals to families, thanks to its good-sized rooms that are elegantly decorated with funky accents. There’s a special “milk and cookies” room service delivery for kids—and, for adults, a complimentary wine and snacks happy hour. The hotel has an appealing courtyard that faces a small canal inlet off the Charles River, and offers free kayaks and bikes for borrowing.
