Great hotel to stay in. Close proximity to nearby colleges and downtown Boston.
Calamari and crab cakes were amazing.
One small drawback, had to wait a few minutes for hot water to flow out afer opening the up faucet..

Rated 3 out of 5 by Msbell65 Weekend get away
The Hotel was nice. The beds were not very comfortable. The recognition as a Starwood Gold Member was non existent. The restaurant in the hotel was very expensive with limited options.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Newyorker10022 Good value in Boston suburb
A good deal. Staying at the nedham Sheraton will save you big bucks instead of a comparable hotel in Boston proper.
The renovated rooms are well furnished, large and comfortable. Staff is excellent. Restaurant and cafe/bar are adequate; I wish they were better.
Spigo is a fine restaurant within walking distance.
I plan to stay at the needham Sheraton when I return to the bostonbarea.

Rated 4 out of 5 by woodlake Needs new sheets
Overall this hotel was very nice. They acknowledged my Starwood status and gave some comps due to a room upgrade not being available.
Two points against them:
1) There were four people in our room and only three towels which was only a problem because we didn't realize it until we needed it and then it took 20 minutes for a new towel to show up and it was too late.
2) The bed sheets are SUPER loud. Every time my wife and I moved we were waking each other up. I don't know how sheets could be so loud.
Other than those points it was a very nice hotel with courteous and helpful staff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CorporateGal Close Enough to Boston
We stayed here a lot for work, & I seemed to have a good experience every time. If you're looking for a 5-star hotel, you're not going to find it here. However, I wasn't expecting one, so I was happy with what I got. The staff was very friendly & whenever I had an issued or needed something, they were very quick in assisting me. The engineer is great - when my air conditioner/heat wasn't turning on, he came up in less than 10 minutes & fixed it for me. While this is located in a suburb, the hotel does have a free shuttle that takes you right to the Green Line T station, so you can easily go into the city.
The food wasn't great - I only had their breakfast, & it was continental breakfast, so nothing special - but they did make good coffee. However, there were a fair amount of places that delivered (check Foodler), & downtown Needham is only about 10 minutes away & there's lots of good restaurants there.
Would I actively seek out this place to stay? Probably not. But if I'm here for work in Boston & don't want to pay a fortune for a hotel, this place will meet your expectations.

Rated 3 out of 5 by basics Poor housekeeping experience...again
This is my second trip where housekeeping failed to restock basic items - shampoo, condition. So, again, I had to call downstairs and wait for someone to bring me stuff so I could simply wash my hair before going to work. What a drag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CARL37 Club level warning
This hotel met my expectations as far as comfort and facilities go. However I do not recommend upgrading to the club level for the food. During cocktail hour they served dry spaghetti and salad. Breakfast was equally disappointing. While parked in a SPG gold space, my car was hit by another car with major damage. They didn't leave a note.
