Hotel rooms have been redone, so nice inside. Staff very helpful and courteous. But very limited food access is a major disappointment. The hotel has no real breakfast option. You can only buy a very limited set of highly overpriced items in the coffee shop. Same for dinner. I arrived late and all I could eat was a frozen pizza... More

If in Cambridge, not a bad choice. Rooms upgraded. New bar area in restaurant. Checking in is a pain with so many cabs in pull in area. Will go back. Reception on Wednesday nights. Nice fitness center. Ask for view of river. Running trail across street.

Selected this location in Cambridge as a Family focal point to celebrate my son's graduation from Bentley University. With 4 adults and 5 siblings and cousins, it was a great location to get to Boston's North End, Harvard Square, Waltham or any of the surrounding area for dining, sightseeing, or attending events. Also organized a 6 mile walk along the... More

Standard Marriott quality with handy shuttle to Harvard, MIT and the MBTA. Centrally located on the Cambridge side of the Charles River, it is a 20 minute max walk to Harvard Square, Central Square and Kendall Square. Or take the hotel shuttle for $5.

I had a single overnight at The Courtyard at the beginning of May. Overall, the stay was nice and pleasant. I was glad to see they have onsite parking for guests. It will run you about $35 per day, which is steep in my book but standard practice with Marriott across all their brands (usually pricier with other brands). Check... More

Harvard recommended this hotel and one other for a weeklong session at special rate of $279+tax. Walk to the college was a mile along the Charles River-- lovely in the morning and evening. Rooms have been re done so they are comfortable and well appointed. The hotel doesn't have much personality. Buy your own breakfast in the coffee shop- yogurt,... More

I was in Boston to hear my daughter sing her Senior Recital and since my wife had knee issues and could not come, I shared this room with my sister. My review is biased by the fact that she said that weekend rooms were $350. She used Marriott points. The Good - Trader Joes is just out the back door.... More

I am an Elite Platinum Marriott Rewards member, and spent a lot of time in Courtyard hotels, but this is the worst one by far.

Courtyard Marriott in Cambridge is a great hotel mainly because the staff is VERY attentive and friendly. I was pleased to find that the rooms were large, clean, and newly updated. This courtyard has a lot of amenities as well that you can't find at other locations. I highly recommend it!

The room I was in looks like it just got an upgrade. Brand new and very contemporary. The bed was really hard and a little uneven. I prefer firm but a bit soft, this was more lumpy. I wish there was more light in the bathroom - it's a bit hard to see when in the shower. The a/c was... More
