FromBoston Logan airport:

To use the MBTA rapid transit systemm take the airport shuttle bus (#22, #33, or #55) to the MBTA Blue Line station. Take the Blue Line "inbound" to Government Center. At Government Center, go upstairs to the "outbound" Green Line platform. Continue with Green Line directions (below) to Lechmere. Alternately, take the "outbound" Red Line train toward Alewife and continue with the Red Line directionsto Kendall Square (below).

From South Station (Amtrak, etc.):
Taxis are available, or you can use the MBTA rapid transit. Find the stairs down to the MBTA Red Line Subway. Take the Red Line "inbound" to Park Street. At Park Street, go upstairs to the "Track 4" Green Line platform. Continue with Green Line directions below.

Green Line to Cambridge:
Take a Green Line train whose sign says "Lechmere" only. Ride to Lechmere (last stop on line). (Pronounced LEECH-meer) From Lechmere, look for a small pedestrian tunnel under the tracks you just rode in on, and go through that, heading West. Cross Cambridge Street and you'll just continue on First Street, crossing Otis, Thorndike, Spring, and then Hurley Streets (in short blocks). The next cross street is labeled Charles Street to the right and Cambridgeside Place to the left. Go left on Cambridgeside Place, between the Galleria and the IBM building, and you will be walking straight toward the main entrance of the Sonesta, which is across the street at the end of the block.

Red Line to Cambridge:
Take the Red Line to Kendall Square Station. Exit the station and cross the street to the Harvard Coop. The 'Wave' Shuttle Service picks up at this location on a posted schedule (10AM-7PM). The shuttle bus will drop you off at the CambridgeSide Galleria, across the street from the Hotel. Walk across Edwin Land Boulevard to the Hotel.
