This Marriott lies between Main and Broadway and passengers from the adjacent Kendall subway station use the lobby as a shortcut. In summer, it might be charming but right now Boston is going through a Siberian freeze and the constant flow of people from one side to the other of the ground floor means that the doors are always open...

I stayed here on business and my employer picked the hotel. Glad I read the tripadvisor reviews first so I wasn't surprised when no one came out to park my car. (Valet $45 a day, so thank goodness I wasn't footing the bill). Lina at check-in was wonderful, but after that things were just "okay" at best. The lobby was... More

Dear Harmony B, Sorry to learn that your recent stay at our hotel wasn't perfect. I will be sure to follow up on your concerns with the appropriate department managers.

I stayed here while escorting students on a school field trip to MIT. We could not have asked for a better experience. The hotel is very clean, the beds and rooms themselves are very comfortable and the hotel is literally 5 steps away from the Kendall/MIT subway station. I could not believe it when I stepped outside and saw the... More

We had a fantastic experience at this property. Every staff member we encountered was professional, warm and friendly. We came up to Boston to celebrate my 50th birthday and our 20th anniversary. I am a Marriott Rewards member and I never ask for upgrades but I decided to ask and we were upgraded to a river view room with the... More

The hotel is OK, barely, but not worth the p hassle in my experience. The bathrooms are small, and the rooms have no special features, but are clean and comfortable, if slightly outdated. On checking out, it took a good bit of effort to correct the bill. Fine, that happens sometimes. The problem is that after I settled the bill... More

Great location right across the water from Boston with full views of the Boston skyline (even number rooms). Small sink outside the main bathroom where the shower and toilet are located. They make full use of the room space with a couch and table plus the standard desk, flat screen, and night tables. Starbucks on property which is a plus... More

The good things about the hotel - location is great. The red line (Kendall Square) is at the front door. There is an ok pool, with a hot tub and tiny, thin old towels (still better than no towels). There are on-site amenities such as a Starbucks and bar/grill, plus plenty of dining options in the neighborhood. The room was... More

Dear BarHarbor2009 – I am so sorry you had the experience you described in your post. We all know from time to time equipment fails or things don’t work properly, however, for you to describe the service you had during check-in makes me shake my head. I would like to make this up to you and the 3 children you... More

Stayed during July 4th holiday weekend. Great views of the Charles River and Cambridge area. Hotel is conveniently located by mass transit stations. I also walked and explored local coffeeshops, restaurants and bakeries nearby. This was a good location in Cambridge area and not far taking public transportation to Boston.

You get the Marriott quality with a very efficient service and friendly staff. Great location as the Kendall Sq T station is right at the entrance of the hotel. The fitness center is really great too. Ask for a room with view on the Charles.
