We worked with Manda and she was just fabulous. She had I probably exchanged 38796 emails and by the end of it, I felt like she was a friend. She was more than accommodating when it came to our requests and even more accommodating when it came to my parents. My father is not in the best health and Manda went above and beyond when it came to ensure that his room was easily accessible, carts were available, etc. This was extremely touching and meant the world to my family and I.
She was great when it came to giving advice on how to set things up, what the timelines should be, food, etc.
We also worked with Scott on the actual wedding day- he was an angel!!! If I needed ANYTHING- he was there. As embarrassing as it is, I fell and hit my head... he was right there with ice and of course, a drink refill :). He also worked with the staff to ensure that all of our gift, decorations, etc all made it back up to our room.
When we arrived to our suite, we found a present from Manda- champagne, strawberries, chocolate... delish!!!

All and all, the Hyatt is breathtaking and the staff that we worked with was top-notch. If you are looking for a place to have an elegant bay wedding- this is the place!

Our wedding at the Cambridge Regency Hyatt was spectacular! We had our ceremony in their outdoor tent right on the river and we had our reception in the Charles View Ballroom. The view from the ballroom was absolutely spectacular and worth every penny. How can you beat floor to ceiling windows right on the river? We worked with Robert to get all of our details finalized. He was great to work with. He was very helpful and made sure our day ran very smoothly. We also worked with Fabrina who was also incredibly helpful. This venue has amazing views of Boston and Cambridge. I would definitely have another event there.

The service was great, the employees generally were happy to help and respond to any questions or needs we had. They made many accomodations with food, rooms, etc. The convenience and luxery of the ceremony and reception held at the same location was fabulous! Our guests also stayed at the hotel which was very nice, as well as the honeymoon suite which was so beautiful! The tent made a great place for the ceremony!

We chose to have our wedding ceremony and reception at the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge, MA. The moment we stepped foot in the Charlesview Ballroom we know immediately it was where we wanted to have our wedding. Being a Boston native, I can honestly say it is definitely one of the best views of the Boston skyline. From beginning to the end of the wedding planning process, the Hyatt staff has been amazing. Our wedding coordinator, Lindsay Barton, was attentive and made sure our wedding was everything we dreamed of. The rest of the staff that worked our wedding made sure that we were tended to. We never had to ask for anything because the staff was always a step ahead of me. We love the venue and loved our experience with the staff. Simply amazing and accommodating.

We decided to look at the Hyatt in Cambridge based on a recommendation from our caterer (Masala Art). We wanted to do an Indian buffet wedding and the Hyatt is one of the hotels they routinely worked with. I was skeptical it would be in our price range but we were pleasantly surprised by their Indian wedding package! When we walked into the Charles River Ballroom, the view of Boston blew us away and we knew we wanted to get married there. I really wanted an outside ceremony, so we also really happy that they have a gorgeous little courtyard that was perfect for our ceremony. We worked with Robert Goehring in the catering department and he was fantastic. They aren’t super fast to respond when your wedding is a few months out (since they do so many events) but they always answered our questions and were very good to work with. They week and day of the wedding, they were fantastic! Everything was set up perfectly, the room was beautiful and they did a great job. The suite they gave us for the night was awesome too!

We loved having our wedding at the Hyatt Regency! We had our ceremony and cocktail hour in the Riverside Pavilion (the big white tent) and our reception upstairs on the 16th floor in the Charles View Ballroom, which has an amazing view of the whole city. We signed up with Jennifer Skeber in the Catering Dept, but then she was replaced by Lindsey Barton, who was fantastic. She always responded to our emails right away (except when she had an Out of Office up, but you can’t blame her for that: we wouldn’t have wanted her on email on our wedding day either!) and was responsive and courteous throughout the process. She always explained things to us that seemed confusing and went above and beyond to make the planning easy. She was willing to negotiate with us on pricing and even let us change our head count a few days before the wedding. One small criticism we had is that it seemed at times like the Catering Dept. would have benefitted from having a few more employees than they did: the weekend of our wedding there were many weddings going on and it seemed like Lindsey was in charge of all of them, making her less available for us when we needed her.
The front desk and the billing department definitely needed some hand-holding: we’d negotiated a certain price for our guests and for ourselves, and yet many people were still charged a higher rate, which required a lot of extra work on our part to continually remind the front desk of our negotiated rate. The weekend of the wedding was a lot better though: the front desk was very accommodating with early check-in and our guests had no problems receiving the rooms they requested. They also handed out welcome gifts to everyone at no extra charge. The rooms are newly renovated and were beautiful—especially the bridal suite, which was bigger than our New York City apartment!
The food at the Hyatt was amazing: many people told us that it was the best wedding food they’d ever had. The chef was very willing to work with us to change items or replace items as needed during our tasting, and the food day of was just as good as we remembered it from the tasting. We appreciated the extra touches the Hyatt provided, such as a “tuxedo strawberry” (chocolate-covered strawberry) that accompanied our wedding cake. Because the Hyatt isn’t in close proximity to a lot of other food options (one small negative, but manageable), we ate our meals all weekend in the Zephyr Restaurant, but were always very impressed with the food quality.
The day of the wedding, everything went fairly smoothly. We had some issues with our florist arriving late and getting confused as to set-up and timing, but Lindsey did her best to keep the day—and the florist—on track. Since the weather was beautiful, we had many different options for beautiful outdoor scenes for which to take portraits, which was an unexpected bonus. The wait and bar staff did a good job, and we received everything we needed at the end of the weekend (such as our cake topper and the materials we’d used to decorate our chuppah).
Overall, I definitely recommend having your wedding at the Hyatt Regency: fantastic food, courteous and attentive staff, and a view to die for. Our wedding was everything we hoped it would be!

The Hyatt was amazing! We were looking to have an outdoor ceremony and a reception site that had a gorgeous view of Boston. We got all of that and more! We worked closely with Alison. She was personable and professional throughout the process and was accommodating to all of our requests! The Hyatt was extremely flexible with the wedding package and we got everything we wanted. The wedding day went off mostly without issue and we had a wonderful day. Every guest raved about the Boston skyline view from the Charles View Ballroom and the weather was perfect for our courtyard ceremony. Additionally, the wait staff was speedy and hard working. We would recommend this venue to a friend!

The Hyatt Regency Cambridge is a hidden gem in the Boston and Cambridge area. The value you get for the price is arguably unbeatable. I was able to get my city wedding without the city cost. I loved the modern feel of the Charles View Ballroom and its view! I had a tremendous amount of compliments on the presentation and especially the taste of the food. To those who are intimidated by the online pricing, negotiate, negotiate, negotiate! The catering staff will work with your budget.

Now the areas for improvement: My original contact person left and I ended up working with Jenn. She got the job done, but I did not feel much warmth in her personality. On the wedding day, there was a lot of confusion as to where the guys would be getting ready. My fiance and his groomsmen stood around the hotel lobby for 20 long minutes before anyone came to direct them where to go. I also later found out that the wait staff was overly anxious to clear food plates from guests before they were finished eating. For any future brides, communicate to the Hyatt to take it easy. My family felt like they had to protect their food because plates kept disappearing.

The fire alarm sirens and bright lights unexpectedly came on during my wedding reception. We were told the lights could not be turned off until the situation was attended to. The lights remained on even after the alarm was eventually stopped. After some emails and negotiating, we were able to work out a fair compensation.

Overall, amazing food, view and value.
