I stayed here last week for 3 nights during a work trip. The lobby was ok and the people at the desk were helpful. The room had stain on the carpet, a long black hair in the shower, and rust around the shower drain. On the second day I asked to move and I was given a key to a...

The hotel is at a safe and convenient location. About a 10 minute walk to the subway station which will take you into Boston or out to Harvard, etc.. It is within a 10 minute walk to MIT. Great breakfast, and nice clean quiet rooms. I highly recommend it for your stay in Cambridge.

It was one of the more affordable options near kendall. The room was big with a pull out sofa bed. There's a tiny kitchen with utensils. The free breakfast menu was extensive but seating was limited, so best to go early.

My wife and I head to Boston yearly for an Anniversary trip in January. I chose this hotel because I had points as a Marriott rewards member and it offered breakfast and access to the T. It's a great place to stay, for sure. Clean room with a fully stocked kitchenette as a bonus. Bed was comfortable and room temperature...

We stayed during the MIT Splash 2016. Even though it was extremely busy, Marriott never disappoints. The staff made the stay! Everyone at the front desk was so friendly and helpful.

We almost always stayed at the Cambridge Residence Inn when visiting our daughter in college there, but hadn't been there for a while since her graduation a few years ago. The Residence Inn is as good as ever. The common areas were remodeled recently - a nice facelift although the traffic patterns through the breakfast area aren't the best and...

I stayed here for one night in October 2016 for work. I have stayed here once before and had forgotten how nice a hotel it is, right in the heart of Cambridge.

Clean suite, enjoy having a living area separate from the bedroom/bath. The staff at the check in desk were great. They gave me a good recommendation for dinner, and was able to even enjoy the dessert hour afterwards.
