This is a nice, classy hotel. It is very modern and offers all the conveniences we needed for our winter trip to Boston. My two complaints: 1. hallway noise/door slamming If another guest has a conversation in the hall, you can hear every word in your room. The doors slam shut and also are not muffled. 2. wifi isn't included... More

I just stayed there 2 nights for a bachelorette party. The lobby was beautiful and had a Starbucks, which was perfect for us. The rooms were nice. We did have 1 issue; we were told there was a mini fridge in every room, but there wasn't. We called downstairs and they had one delivered to us asap so it all... More

Dear Karissa, Glad to hear that you had a great stay at our Hotel. I do apologize if you were told that all of our guest rooms have mini fridges. At this time, only our suites, concierge level rooms and superior rooms have them. Of course, as you experienced, we have many in stock that can be delivered upon request.... More

Staff very professional, let us check in quite early Room size, cleanliness, and decor very good like the rest of the hotel Kendall T station right next door compensates for slightly out of the way location of the hotel; also there are some...

Needed a good alternate to pay the high prices of staying in Boston and this hotel fit the bill. The hotel is right off the red line and just a few stops from downtown. Room itself was clean and met my expectations. Food choices around were plentiful and convenient. Parking rates were a bit high but found plenty of street... More

The Marriot is a Marriot, the rooms are exactly as you expect. But I was surprised when sitting in a restaurant area off the lobby, sheltering from the icy blasts that go through to the lobby, to be castigated by a restaurant manager and made to move for "not ordering food". The place was empty, it was not a meal... More

Dear Djgold, I am very sorry for the poor service that you received in our lobby lounge. Your experience was certainly not the Marriott standard and I will be sure to follow up with the leadership of that area. Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to provide me with some additional details. I am pleased... More

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...

Hello Beatric~ I was sorry to hear of your experience in our lobby. You are absolutely right about the winter we are having and it does impact the lobby on extremely cold days. The majority of the time the lobby is a very enjoyable place to relax, gather with friends and connect to Wi-Fi. I hope you find yourself in... More

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

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
