Fodor's Expert Review DoubleTree by Hilton Cambridge

Granta Pl. and Mill La., Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, CB2 1RT, England

This modern establishment makes the most of its peaceful riverside location; many rooms have sweeping views of the surrounding area, and the gardens, conservatories, and bar overlook the River Cam. Although the architecture exhibits a Brutalist use of concrete, the rooms are more stylish. Ask about lower-price packages. Celebrity chef Marco Pierre White oversees the steak house here, although equally good (and cheaper) dining is available in town. The hotel is set among the colleges on 3 acres of private grounds.

PROS

  • central position
  • good facilities and service
  • spacious rooms

CONS

  • price fluctuates wildly over summer season
  • can feel impersonal
  • restaurant is a bit pricey for a steak house
