4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel was clean and well kept-everything you would expect from a Marriott. The bar has a great burger deal (Wednesday night, I think). There were many great restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. It was also extremely easy to hop on the subway to all of Boston's historic destination.

Rooms are what you expect from a Marriott - reliably clean and comfortable. Location is great - close to public transportation and in the heart of MIT. Lobby is very modern with a full-service Starbucks.

Paid a fortune to stay here for a work event (so not much choice) so was expecting much more than the hotel could deliver. It has a handy location right next to MIT and Kendall T and only 2 stops into main Boston area, but this was definitely not a high end hotel as the price implied. Best thing was... More

Hello JuB29 We have a great staff at the hotel and I am glad to hear that you found them to be efficient and accommodating. Hotel prices in the Cambridge/Boston area run very high during the summer months, probably the highest you will experience throughout the entire year. I am sorry you felt that your accommodations did not reflect the... More

Stayed overnight with a buddy while in town for a concert at Fenway. We had looked around for something a bit cheaper (hoping for something in the $150 range near a T station, but nothing decent available), but ended up here, sacrificing $$ for the convenience of being about a mile from the stadium. The hotel lobby was very clean.... More

Hello KidRip I hope you enjoyed the concert. We have had some great entertainers visit Boston this summer and Fenway is a fun place to see a performance. Our location is a key selling feature of the hotel. Being directly on the subway line you are just a few stops from Boston or Harvard Square. This also affects the room... More

Was worried reading other reviews on this Marriott, but happy to say our experience was great. Yes, pricey. A little higher than I normally pay for business hotels. And yes, you pay for WiFi and breakfast. Again, it mimics what I've experienced at business hotels. But our room was lovely, the hotel lobby has that great city buzz of shakers... More

This is an older Marriott with untrained staff and poor room configurations. Every room is on an angle and the views are restricted. The rooms have terrible lighting so many parts appear dark. The TV is too far away from the couch which makes viewing difficult. The front desk staff does not comprehend Marriott policies. I did not receive my... More

Dear Case1096, I was disappointed to learn that you did not have a great stay at our hotel. Our floor to ceiling corner windows typically provide great views of Boston and the surrounding area along with lots of natural light.. I would welcome the opportunity to hear from you about the specific room you were in along with how your... More

This continues to be my go-to hotel in Boston. The service is fantastic and the location (adjacent to the Kendall Square T station) is excellent. It looks like the hotel is being upgraded in stages. The lobby and elevators have been done -- they are nice and modern (in fact, the lobby is a great place to hang out). The... More

This is a very old and dated Marriot. It was very expensive and we wished we had spent the extra to stay at the downtown Marriot at the wharf. The plumbing system obviously needs an overhaul. Our toilet did not flush properly from the get go and when it overflowed all over the bathroom into the rug in the hallway... More

The hotel is well located for those doing business in Cambridge - close to most of the Pharma companies. It's also located close to some good bars and restaurants like the Mead Hall. The rooms are large but are relatively basic, and are in reasonably good condition. It's a very standard Marriott - good for business, nothing exciting, but comfortable.

Hi Joroenvdl Thank you for your post. Our location could not be better if you are here to visit the Pharma companies in the area. I think you will find our upcoming renovation will address your comments about our guestrooms. We are very excited about our new rooms. Hope to see you again if you are in the Cambridge area....

We expected to be picked up by the Trolley Tours right outside the hotel, but as I mentioned in my Trolley review, that rarely happened. So we took the Red Line, which picked up right in front of the hotel. The WiFi cost money, there is no breakfast unless you pay $16 for an apple and muffin, but thankfully we... More
