Stayed here for one nice and it was very nice. From the minute you check in the staff is very helpful. The hotel itself is large and the rooms are very comfortable. If you get the right side rooms, you'll have a fantastic view of the Charles River & downtown Boston.

We stayed here for four nights while in the Boston area. Being right next to a subway station was perfect to be able to hop around the city. The hotel was overall very clean and the staff were friendly. Nothing exceptional while we stayed, just a solid hotel over all.

Hotel has a spectacular view of boston/beacon hill and is located on the red line metro stop. The lobby is VERY busy as it also serves as a pass-through for a conference center and the metro. The staff is very helpful and the rooms comfy and clean.

Nice and large reception area with plenty of seats, a good bar and breakfast area and friendly staff. But once you get out of the elevator it is annout-dated place. Rooms can certainly use a repaint and more. Comfy beds though. A very small gym for this size hotel and it gets full at 6am.

Hello oldtraveller131 - Thank you for your post. I truly understand your comment regarding coming off the elevator on the guestroom floors and seeing an older décor and color scheme. This will all be changing later in the year with totally updated guestrooms. We take great pride in the service and amenities we offer. I hope you will have the... More

Guess it's a standard US city hotel. Room was fine; I loved being able to look down the street to the river and watch all the snow clear up (I was there during The Great Storm That Never Was in Jan 2015. A weird coffee set up compared to the UK, but I got to enjoy it - little filters... More

I was in Boston for a couple of days (a Saturday and a Sunday) to visit friends before heading up to Maine and chose this hotel based on location and price.

Hello Aimee B Thank you for choosing to stay with us on your way to Maine. You are absolutely correct about our location. We are not in the heart of Boston (located just over the Charles River), but with the subway stop right outside our door, you can get into the city in less than 10 minutes. I appreciate your...

Sure, Boston is an expensive placee to stay but we were in a bind to find a room for our son's graduation. We were stuck so we booked a room at the Boston Marriotf for $499 a night. Instead of something special, considering the price, we found a small room, with a very small bathroom area, and the worst in-room... More

we were in Cambridge for a MIT and had not been pleased last year at the Kendall Hotel. So instead of boutique we decided to try the Marriott. We were much happier. Beds were very comfortable. All our requests were met, including a mini fridge that we had to request. Rooms are a little dark as the windows are just... More

We were a group of 4 adults and were promised two double beds, they tried to put us in a room with 1 king and a pull out couch. We got to room and the springs on the pull out couch were terrible, not even good for a young adult let alone two grown adults. So we had to go... More

It's a Marriott, so you know the lobby will look classy. The desk staff were competent and friendly -- I was already booked and pre-paid -- and were good at answering my routine questions. ("Are local calls free? Are 800 numbers free?") The room was beautiful. The king-size bed was extremely comfortable -- although, oddly, the side of the bed... More
