The hotel resides in a quiet residential street in the Baldwin neighborhood of central Cambridge. In the summer of 2021, the Baldwin neighborhood was named after black educator, Maria Baldwin who worked hard to represent the importance of racial justice and opportunities for women of color within Cambridge and beyond. To each side of the Baldwin neighborhood, lies Harvard and Porter square with Massachusetts Avenue serving as a connecter of the two. Directly to the east, the neighborhood borders the nearby city of Somerville. Surrounded by top institutions, there’s no shortage of activities, bars, and restaurants to experience during your stay at Prentiss House.
