I stayed for two nights in a Marriott Residence Inn in Cambridge, MA. when the city was full of 96 inches of snow. It was easy to get into the hotel and the service was excellent, even though I knew it was not easy for their employees to get to work, with the subway system barely operating. I got checked...

We usually stay at the Marriott in Cambridge. But we used points to stay at the Residence this trip. You miss a lot of the amenities. We haul our own luggage; luckily we grabbed a cart. Our room was not cleaned one day even though we were out and about almost all day. The complimentary breakfast is the same every... More

Dear Michelle K, I would like to first thank you for choosing our Hotel as an alternative to the Cambridge Marriott. Residence Inn offers complete suites and spacious living areas, and I can appreciate how you missed having extra amenities throughout the building. Our location is central to dozens of terrific restaurants, all within a 5 minute walk of the... More

Stayed at this residence inn for a week during a biz trip to Cambridge last month. The location is perfect, with 5 minutes walk to MIT and kendal square. Besides hotel, there are a lot of good place for either dinner or just a drink. The room is spacious, and seems recently renovated. The breakfast was quite simple but fresh.... More

This is your average residence Inn with good clean furnishings and a friendly staff. The room we stayed in had a queen bed and sofa sleeper. Much of the room seemed to have been renovated but not all. The furniture (nightstand, headboard, dresser) seemed a little worn and dated. Breakfast was standard Residence Inn fare. Nice location near the Charles... More

Stayed here for an overnight on business. No major frills, just a good, semi-spacious, clean room with a comfy bed. The draw here is the excellent location. You are a short walk to all that is Kendall Square. There is free breakfast in the morning. It's nothing special, but if you want something quick and free, it's very convenient. Not... More

Dear minicooperdad, I am so thrilled to hear that you found the bed to be comfortable, as we just replaced all of the beds one month ago! Thank you very much for staying with us and it sounds as if the location suited your needs very well. Our central location in Kendall Square grants access within a five minute walk... More

One if the fewer options for family of 5 - studio with 2 double beds and sofa bed. Room was spascious and clean well appointed. No fan in the bathroom. Breakfest with a lot of choices as good as you can expect in this type of chain. Close to Boston so it was sufficient for 1 night. Asked for sofa-bed... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. We checked in very late and the staff had everything ready for us. There was free wi-fi for guests, it gets a bit tricky because everyday I'd have to forget the network, restart the phone, and then sign in again, but it was manageable. The breakfast was good, but the best part was... More

My 3 Top Things to Say: staff was warm and genuine, the hotel itself was chic and fitted the neighborhood well and the proximity to historic sites, dining, shopping and campuses/business of interest was great. We traveled with nine high school students and everyone enjoyed the locale and amenities. Would recommend and stay there again.

The Residence Inn Cambridge is near the Kendall/MIT Station with lots of shops and restaurants. Check-in was quick with Ms. Natalia at the front desk, who greeted me with a warm smile and welcome. Ms. Natalia was also kind enough to deliver... More
