Re: Oxygen dependent visitor staying at Cambridge Hyatt in mid-October

I am looking for suggestions for restaurants, museums, etc. within walking distance for
a 63 year old reasonably fit woman who has to lug around an oxygen cart. No, I never smoked. It is fairly difficult to climb up and down stairs as my device weighs around 15 lbs.
I looked thorough the boards but didn't seeing anyone posting about handicapped accessible places within walking distance.
Thanks in advance.

  1. Unfortunately the Cambridge Hyatt is not located well for easy walking distance access to much of anything other than the hotel's own restaurants. Central Square and Kendall Square have plenty of restaurants, many of which are not up or down stairs, but they're all between 1 and 1.5 miles from the hotel.

    Except for the MIT Museum (about a mile away) all of the local museums are even farther away. I'm afraid you will probably need to take taxis to and from most of your destinations.

        1. Folks, please help lasvegasoleander with suggestions for dining; suggestions about museums and other accommodations are off topic, and we'll remove 'em.

          1. There is very little in the immediate vicinity of the Hyatt in Cambridge. You might consider walking one way and cabbing back to the hotel. Can you provide more detail as to what you are looking for?

            There are a few higher end places (Salts, Craigie on Main) which are well regarded on this board which would be about a mile's walk. There is lots in that general area and distance if you can be more specific as to your dining likes and dislikes.

            Unfortunately our friendly over-moderators have threatened to remove and other suggestions about museums, etc. so I can't help you there or the restaurant advice will disappear as well. However the hotel concierge should be able to point you in the right direction.
