This location was in a great spot, we had a beautiful view! The customer service was incredible! My two girlfriends & I stayed for one unplanned night & our night staff & morning staff were incredibly helpful. They gave us tips on finding hotels for the remainder of our trip because they were fully booked the next night & just... More

The first part of our trip was terrible until we showed up to the courtyard. It was super late and they were ready for us. They were very accommodating and professional. The rooms were clean! The view was pretty awesome. The location was great. We were right next to Starbucks and a dunkin which made our morning very nice. All... More

Joel at the desk was helpful and accommodated a late check-out that made my morning much more manageable. The rooms are nicely renovated. We had a great view of the Charles River, good for watching the boat traffic during the day and the lights at night.

No frills, basic, well located hotel along the Charles River in Cambridge. Well positioned to MIT, Central Square, Harvard, BU and Fenway. However, the rooms are small, very basic and remind me of university dormitories ......albeit at $330 a night! Yikes! Yikes! You can do better than this...can't you?

Parking was $35 per night and bike/foot traffic was unbearable. If you are contemplating this hotel for a business stay it's probably a better choice to stay a bit farther out of Cambridge and travel in because regardless of in or out of the campus area traffic is the same - horrible. The room is small and the restaurant isn't... More

A typical big city Marriott/Courtyard. Boston is pricey, but this is reasonable compared to other hotels in the nearby neighborhood. Restaurant is Asian, and they do have other choices of food and are open late for travelers. Nice bar, overall is clean and help is very professional. Parking is tight and difficult to get in and out but this is... More

The room was excellent--clean, comfortable, and well-furnished, with a great view of the Charles River. But the best part was the thoroughly helpful staff--Sandra and especially Joel at the front desk, and shuttle drivers Darrell and especially Brahim. They really made my stay both efficient and pleasant. The title of my review refers to the shuttle service, which I didn't... More

This is my second stay at this hotel, the first long before Trip Advisor existed and long before their recent re-do. The hotel is in a nice location hear Harvard, even walk-able to Boston U. Location aside, the re-do really made this hotel seem fresh, and worth being out of downtown Boston. I was happy with my choice, and hope... More

Very happy here, the front desk staff was very courteous. I'm going through some very rough times at home and have been back and forth between Memphis and Cambridge several times over the last few months for funerals and whatnot.
