CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Making the decision about what college to attend can be a challenging experience.

The Cambridge hotel doesn't want parents dipping into their children's college savings to visit one or more of the local higher education facilities, so it is offering its College Visit Package. The package, a smart choice for any college hopeful, provides students and their companions deluxe accommodations from $159 to $499 per night plus complimentary high-speed Internet access, a $10 Charlie Card for subway access, complimentary parking for one vehicle and personal concierge service prior to arrival to help plan the trip.

The hotel's location to downtown Boston, Logan International Airport (BOS), Amtrak's South or Back Bay stations, Interstate 93 and the MBTA public transportation system makes getting around town convenient.

Once graduates ask all of the important questions on their college tours, they may want to spend some time exploring the city surrounding the college and hotel in Cambridge, MA, to really get a feel for its atmosphere. The historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace is in downtown Boston and offers more than 70 retailers and 160,000 square feet of space within the iconic mixed-use festival marketplace. In addition to shopping and dining, the area offers live street concerts and shows. Visitors can step back in time by taking the Freedom Trail Walking Tour, where each step and stop along the 2.5-mile trail highlights a historically significant site.

As the cradle of liberty, Boston is filled with museums of all kinds. Some of the most recommended include the Museum of Science, John F. Kennedy Library & Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Boston Tea Party Ship & Museum and the Harvard Museum of Natural History.

When it's time to rejuvenate busy minds, guests will find pure comfort and modern technologies in one of 421 rooms or 12 suites at the hotel near Harvard. Complimentary wireless Internet access affords students the ability to get directions, find last-minute details about their university tours, chat with friends via social media and even play games to distract their thinking, while plenty of desk-level electrical outlets mean there are plenty of places to plug in batteries for charging. Rooms feature 32-inch flat-screen TVs and luxurious beds topped with down comforters, custom duvets and cotton-rich linens. Pull-out sofa beds provide extra sleeping space when needed. An in-room iron and ironing board helps students and their parents look pressed and polished for their campus visits.

This college visit package is valid Thursday through Sunday through June 1, 2014. To book this deal, scholars can use promotional code ES7 online or over the phone at 1-800-228-9290.
