We needed to spend a few days at MIT, so this Marriott, along with its sister property the Residence Inn are good Marriott branded properties. The Kendall Square stop is located next to or across the street (depending on which direction you are going). TIP #1, pls don't take your life into your hands or be at the mercy of... More

Although he had settled into Columbia Law School, my son was accepted off the wait list for Harvard Law. We rented a U-Haul and drove from Manhattan to Boston. Who knew the hotel parking was underground and the U-Haul would not fit? The staff of the Cambridge Marriott were wonderful. Even though it was incredibly busy with freshman for Harvard... More

The hotel is centrally located and you can take the subway right from Kendall Square stop which located next to the hotel right into downtown Boston. But there are plenty of restaurants and places to grab a meal within walking distance if you don't feel like traveling in the city. The views of the Charles River from the rooms are... More

Stayed here for a college visit trip t MIT. Great MIT guest rate, but a bit of a lackluster hotel. Better than the Courtyard next door, but not as nice as the Hyatt o the Marriott hotels in Boston. Best feature: proximity to MIT/Harvard. Rooms are ok, a bit faded and older, traditional décor. Lots of marks on wood, tiny... More

The hotel location is great if you are visiting MIT. But otherwise, there are better choices in the Boston area, and this hotel should be avoided at all costs. We checked into the hotel on a Friday night. Valet parking was full. I have extra pillows requested in my profile preferences. The extra pillows were not in the room when... More

We stay at Marriott's regularly and the service here, specifically the front desk, was amazing. They listened to your needs and were very professional and helpful.

Within walking distance of MIT, this hotel was just plain nice! We stayed on the Concierge level and the food/snacks/drinks were convenient and well worth the extra cost. We had an awesome view of the Charles River and the roll-away bed they provided was a "real" bed and not a bunch of springs with a thin mattress. I'd definitely stay... More

Stayed here for 4 nights on business. Convenient location for MIT and for heading into Boston. Literally right next to the Kendall Red Line stop. Several good places to eat within a few blocks. Farmers market on the square outside one weekday afternoon. Very comfortable bed, and a nice room (quite large for a city hotel with a sofa, desk,... More

I stayed at this hotel twice recently on a business trip. The hotel is in a good location and the rooms and facilities are also reasonable. The price is a little expensive but not unusual for Boston. The reason for the low rating is that on return from this trip I found the hotel had charged my credit card $4.50... More

Just completed a great visit to Boston to see family, and this hotel is great for a home base. It's VERY convenient to the Red Line (almost attached to the lobby) which gets you to Harvard, Davis and Central Squares, and South Station. Many good restaurants in the area. The lobby renovations are done, and the staff attitude is as... More
