5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

We were here for the 4th of July so expected they would be too busy for good service...WRONG! We were treated like royalty. Every staff member we nt out of their way to be helpful. The only downer was that it was the same old tired breakfast most Marriott hotels serve...it's OK but nothing special.

Surprised by this property. Fresh look inside from top to bottom. Great location on the Charles, good proximity to most sites. Parking is pricey, but this is Boston, and driving here should be reserved for veterans. Breakfast and dinner options very good. We were so whipped from college move in we just crashed early. Trader Joe's very close a welcome... More

It was a standard Marriott experience, which is always pleasant for me, but the staff made this stay great. As a hospitality manager I was very impressed with every member of the staff, even maintenance took time to manage a friendly mood when guests walked by. The nighttime manager was extremely helpful and very appreciated! Thanks for a great stay... More

Yes the hotel has had a much needed facelift since I last visited two years ago. So yes, it looks better and modern. Was supposed to get a city view (also asked for high floor) as stated in booking. We did get a nice "view" from the third floor overlooking the parking lot! Need to provide instructions on how to... More

Arrived late evening after a day of travel. Reception efficient enough but room and service facilities not up to scratch. Empty fridge -useless. Coffee machine no glass jug - useless. No bottled water-why? Tap water warm - not what you want after a 17 hour day.

We stayed at the Marriott for a wedding. It is very down to earth and was comfortable. The service provided by everyone was outstanding, especially the folks at the front desk. We enjoyed the shuttle service and found it convenient when getting to the "T". We will go back in the future.

This hotel is located right on the Charles River and has some excellent views depending on your room. Memorial Drive runs along the river and is perfect for jogging or walking with a pleasant view of Boston on the other side. Rooms are clean and and the guest area was recently renovated. Bathrooms are clean but still have older fixtures.... More

Fantastic place to stay-close to Harvard and a quick cab ride away from the city (cost less than about $15 each way-good investment bc we wanted to have a few drinks). Didn't even request a top floor room but we got one facing the river--OOOOMG-spectacular!!! Plus there's a Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks next door. Staff was always super friendly and... More

We were in town overnight for a concert. This was fairly close to the venue which is why we chose it. Driving up I felt disappointed. The hotel looked a bit run down and didn't seem to be in a very scenic section of town. However, my feelings changed just walking in. I don't know what some of the reviews... More

A mixup in room request was made good by accommodating us in every way. Comps were given for parking,breakfast and shuttles. Special shout to Leianne at the front desk for her generous and professional assistance. Very nice stay for the CTF event at Harvard.
