Close to MIT and downtown Boston. Great rooms with kitchen. Breakfast was a full buffet which changed from day to day. Very comfortable dining area. I'd recommend staying on lower floors as elevator ride during morning rush can be somewhat long.

We stayed 4 adults in a 2 queen beds studio and there was a lot of space in the room! Kitchen, living room, clean, modern, good food, ... perfect! We asked for a 20$ single rolling bed (witch was comfortable for a rolling!) and combine with the sofa bed, the 4 of us had a bed. I couldn't find another... More

I travel to MIT every 2-3 weeks and usually stay in the nearby Marriott Boston Cambridge but since I travelled with family this time I decided to stay in the next door Residence Inn and was quite happy with the experience. Spacious rooms, good breakfast, convenient location. Giving it 4 stars since it's still quite expensive and if you're a... More

I've stayed at this Inn on a number of visits to Cambridge. This last visit just didn't work. I was given room 1504, which is on the garage side of the building. Evidently I hadn't stayed on this side before. There is a loud blower on that side of the building that, to me, created an unbearable racket. I called... More

Dear RMA626, I was very disappointed to read your comments about the disruptive noise on the back side of the building. I would like an opportunity to learn more details from you, and would appreciate if you have a chance to contact me directly at the Hotel. This will give me a better idea on how to research and address... More

I would come back. Located one block from Kendall/MIT T station on the Red Line, making it easy to/from Logan Airport without changing T trains. (And good for any other place convenient by T train). Welcome living space—two double beds, bathroom, writing desk, sofa and coffee table, fully-equipped kitchen and dining table. Spotless. Very decent breakfast buffet—cooked food, cereals, pancakes,...

I just checked out of this hotel after a four night stay, and my overall expectations were succeeded. The staff was friendly, the breakfast was good (and the selection changed each day), my room was very clean, the location was great for attending a conference at MIT and as a surprise, the hotel had 'small dinners' two of the nights...

The front desk and breakfast staff and the management are the best, better than any other hotel we have ever stayed at. They really care about customer service; friendly, professional and seem to enjoy their jobs. Makes all the difference. The rooms and breakfast areas are all freshly decorated, and the rooms are quite large. The only drawback is the... More

To start with, the reservation was not so easy for me who was trying to make a reservation for over 90 days! Isn't that strange? I work for a corporate which has ties with this hotel, so I had to contact the front desk manager for booking confirmation with the company negotiated prices. The front desk manager (Donovan) never replied... More

We stayed in a 2 BR suite for 5 days. Overall very nice. Only issue was a strong mold smell originating from the vanity sink in one of the bedrooms. We weren't around much and it was not a big deal. The thermostat did not work one evening but when I called, they had someone up to fix it in... More

Dear Airfotog, I would like to thank you and your family for staying with us recently. I hope you enjoyed the newly renovated rooms, and I’m sure the Two Bedroom Suite gave you and the rest of the family plenty of room to spread out and relax.

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights for a Training session with my company. The hotel was great! The bed was so comfortable. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was amazing, with so many choices of food and drinks. The area is very safe with many restaurants within walking distance. I will definitely be back!
