Cambridge/Boston Hotel Rates 2018🔒

VPF Strategic Sourcing has negotiated rates for a selection of hotels in Cambridge and Boston for 2018. A PDF of this page is available at the bottom of the page for easy reference.

These rates are known as "transient rates", which means short stays for one or a few rooms. Call the main phone number listed under the hotel name on the form and request the MIT rate. Rates are subject to availability and are updated every January.

For detailed information on each hotel, use VPF Supplier Search, and choose Hotels/Accommodations from the Commodities dropdown menu, or search for a specific hotel in the general search.  The hotel's page on Supplier Search includes links to the hotel and a map, specific rate information, and contact information.

These rates are not for booking blocks of rooms for events.  If you need to book or hold rooms for an event, call or email the account manager listed under "Contact for Booking Blocks for Events" on the form.
