To the hotel (from the Massachusetts Turnpike, Route 90)
Exit LEFT at the Cambridge/Allston exit. (50 cent toll) When
the off-ramp splits, keep right (going towards Cambridge). At
the end of the ramp, you will see 2 sets of stop lights ahead
of you. Go straight through both of them. At this point, you will
be crossing a bridge going over the river. After the bridge, turn
right onto Memorial Drive, which runs along the river. After about
1.5 miles, get into the left lane. You will be going through an
underpass (9 foot clearance) in order to continue on Memorial
Drive. (If you do not stay left, you will be forced to cross the
river). Now stay in the right lane, continuing on Memorial. (Do
not take the next underpass). Memorial Drive will eventually hook
left. Pass the CambridgeSide Galleria ("Best Buy") on
your left, and continue until you reach Monsignor O'Brien Hwy,
also known as Route 28. (Note the Train overpass running along
this street.) Stay to the right, and start looking for the hotel
ahead of you and to the left. At about the 4th light, you will
have to make a U-turn in order to drive into the hotel's entrance.
(**If you see a Star Market on your left, you have just passed
The Lechmere Station (green line) is located a few blocks down from the hotel. Walk back down Msr O'Brien Hwy to reach the station. Take the train to Park Street. Transfer to the red line, heading towards Alewife. Get off at Harvard Square.
From the hotel to Harvard Sq
Turn right back onto Msr O'Brien Hwy. Turn right onto Third
Street (Dunkin Donuts). Turn right onto Cambridge Street. (You
should see a US Trust on the left when you make the turn). Cambridge
Street leads directly to the University. To enter the Univeristy,
pass Irving St and Sumner St (both on your right). Then turn right
onto Quincy St. Then turn left at the first light, Kirkland Street.
There will be numerous metered parking spaces along the road.
