Between snow storms we fit in a long weekend and stayed at this location of Marriot's Residence Inn. This property has a great location on Kendall Square in Cambridge and is close to the MBTA Red Line. You do not need a car to get there and you really don't need one to get around given how the MBTA network... More

We stayed there with our family in a 2 bedroom suite..plenty of room; breakfast was more than adequate; free Wi-Fi; large kitchen; handicapped bathroom if necessary Two negatives: Parking fee is really high so beware! and a TV remote was missing: we called down but housekeeping never brought us one; we made due by sharing.

My room was big with a kitchen with fridge, microwave, dishwasher,coffee machine,etc...a great facility to prepare something to eat or drink. It is very clean and the breakfast is ok. It is possibile to use wi-fi for free in your room...a great plus!!!

The rooms are spacious and mostly well appointed. There's a ton of space in the middle, between the bed and couch, that seems a waste. Otherwise it has everything you would expect from a Residence Inn. The bed was comfortable but as typical had way too many pillows. The breakfast in the mornings was really good. I also arrived during... More

Dear Patel G, Thank you for staying with us during the Blizzard of 2015! I am glad that you made it in safely and enjoyed your stay with us. We had many staff members stay at the Hotel throughout the storm to continue delivering great service. Although the weather was briskly cold, I was very pleased with the continued warmth... More

Again I will begin my review with the outstanding service! The staff at this property is just outstanding! They welcome you and make you truly feel like they appreciate you as a customer! Their rooms are standard residence inn style but they felt a little bigger than most! Super comfy bed! Haven't slept that good in a while and the... More

Location is close to MIT and the Kendall/MIT T station so you can get to and from Logan airport and elsewhere around Boston easily. Hotel has decent breakfast buffet and there are... More

Hotel was not our family's favorite hotel that we have ever visited but it met our needs and was in a quiet area for our Boston visit. There is a small pool and basic free breakfast. There is also a free social hour but due to our visit over the New Year's Holiday, they only had it one evening and... More

I am a Marriott person and have stayed in this hotel now on three different occasions. The staff is very friendly, but the past two times I have stayed there, there has been some type of issue. First, a water pipe burst on my floor and the next time, they were renovating and wanted me to move my room (you... More

This was a great room for a weekend in Boston. Although, as some reviewers note, some of the furnishings could use an update, it was all clean, spacious and very quiet. The Kendall T was a quick, easy walk. The front desk staff was friendly and competent with good advice when we asked questions about getting around. Highly recommended.
