A Cambridge Icon Reinvented: Extensive Property-Wide Renovation

The iconic Cambridge hotel overlooking the Charles River introduces enhanced spaces and dining experiences at Paperback Tavern & Provisions.

Hyatt Regency Boston / Cambridge formally debuts today an extensive property-wide renovation that has revamped the hotel’s common and meeting & events spaces, while introducing two new dining venues, including Paperback Tavern. The completed project ushers in a new chapter for the iconic and storied property which sits along the scenic Charles River with sweeping views of the water and Boston skyline and blends the spirit of Boston with the intellectual vitality and charm of Cambridge. Operated by Davidson Hotels, it is the ideal gateway for both business and leisure guests to explore these historical New England cities.

The renovation features a full redesign of the hotel’s entrance and lobby, an overhaul of the property’s 25,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space, the addition of Paperback Tavern & Paperback Provisions market, a new state-of-the-art fitness center outfitted with Life Fitness equipment and Peloton bikes and upgraded technology for a seamless overall guest experience. The project was designed by Campbell House and features a mix of styles to reflect the local universities and the life science community.

Situated on the Charles River amongst the famed Innovation Trail and internationally lauded universities, the property’s redesign is inspired by the rich history that surrounds it. The lobby is a warm and welcoming space, sophisticated yet free of formality; it is a social hub designed to capture the spirit of vibrant campus life. The design takes cues from the traditional and scholarly atmosphere of the nearby universities while combining this aesthetic with industrial details and eclectic furniture to create a playful environment for students, business travelers, families, and neighbors alike. The lobby now boasts Paperback Provisions market with plentiful seating options for every guest’s need: from a space to play shuffleboard with friends to privacy booths to plug in and get work done. Campbell House’s design creates a striking yet welcoming atmosphere that ushers in a new era for this iconic hotel.

Sense of Arrival: Iconic Lights, Lobby + Atrium

Upon arrival within a brand-new front entrance, guests are welcomed by the hotel’s upgraded perimeter lighting that borders the hotel and luminates the city’s skyline. The spacious lobby and the iconic atrium features design details of warm neutrals and rich leather accents that evoke the history and charm of the surrounding cities. Customized art pieces decorate the walls as a nod to the local universities, evoking an enlightening aesthetic and ambiance.

Food + Beverage

Paperback Tavern, the new bar & restaurant, features a menu of classic American and regional fare, innovative cocktails and craft brews paired with expansive, unrivaled views of the Charles River and city of Boston. A classic tavern with modern influence, the atmosphere is fun and playful, making it an ideal social environment for events or gathering hub for local residents and scholars. Standout menu options include the Truffled Tater Tots, Clam Chowder, Crispy Chicken Sandwich and Tavern Burger. Paperback Tavern is currently open for dinner daily from 5-11pm with breakfast served on Saturdays & Sundays from 7am – 11:30 am.

Paperback Provisions, a market-style carryout outlet located in the lobby, offers a custom coffee bar, house made pastries, breakfast sandwiches and other quick meal options for guests before they venture out to explore. Paperback Provisions is open daily from 6:30am.

At the helm of the new F&B programming and Paperback Tavern is Janice Sandoval, Executive Chef and Taylor Fischer, Director of Restaurants. Together, they oversee all the food and beverage operations of the 479-room hotel, including Paperback Provisions.
