If you enjoy a terrible night's sleep and waking in the morning with crippling back and neck pain, then this is the hotel for you! We asked them to change the mattress and they said that they would flip the mattress, which still made it just as bouncy and collapsed on either side. The pillows are rock hard and the...

Highly recommend the corner rooms. Hotel has a bar restaurant on site but it does not stay open late. You can catch a quick...

I expect comfortable beds, decent Bistro food, and good service. The bed was quite uncomfortable, and the bistro was crowded with warmed-over food that was not good. This hotel is in a great location, and the staff was friendly. But, the conversion from whatever it was before was not done well. Good views from the higher floors, but the space...

Hello Paul, I would like to apologize on behalf of the entire hotel, that your stay did not meet and or exceed your expectations. Typically, our guestroom beds are comfortable and the restaurant service is pretty good and fast. I will share your feedback with our Housekeeping and Food & Beverage team in order to improve services in the future....

Have stayed here a few times for business travel. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Good large hotel rooms and very clean. About a mile walk to Harvard Square and in a nice quiet neighbourhood with views right on the river. Breakfast offers could improve though.

I stayed at this Courtyard for one evening while on a business trip in March. There is a parking ramp connected to the hotel, so you don't need to go searching for parking. Overnight parking is $35, not cheap, but par for the course in a big city. The front desk clerk was very friendly and was able to check...

I am sharing from my personal experience with Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Cambridge. Overall negative experience with the hotel that started with unprofessional attitude of the staff not knowing that Marriott is part of the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) system prior to my arrival and ending with low level service at the check out. Multiple examples to support the above:...

We ubered to and from our show, which was 2 miles away in Brookline. $7 each way. $35 a night to park at hotel, come and go as you please. Not...

While this hotel is in Cambridge, it is one of three choices that is located very close to Boston University, where son attends. It is within walking distance of Commonwealth Ave and other BU points of interest. This is an interesting property, you can tell it has been renovated recently. Trader Joes and Starbucks are practically in the same parking...

Staff at check in was friendly, we went up to our room. The keys did not work. Went down to the front desk, keys still didn't work. They sent maintenance who showed us that they worked just fine. I know how to use a hotel key, my boyfriend and I each tried many times and then it worked just fine...

Stayed here with my daughter to visit Harvard and MIT. The hotel was pretty much what I expected from Courtyard Marriott. They've been renovating and this location has been updated, clean and modernized. It's located fairly close to both Harvard and MIT, but not close enough to walk. Overall, still a good place to stay.

Thank you for the wonderful comments about your visit to the Courtyard Boston Cambridge. I'm happy to see that your stay was most enjoyable. Harvard and MIT are great schools and hopefully your daughter chooses to further her education right here in Cambridge. Have a great day! Reggie, Front Office Manager
