We stayed in a very large studio apartment. It's very nice, clean, great breakfast, helpful staff. The only thing was very loud plumbing noises whenever the next door guest flushed his toilet. Really LOUD! I don't know if it's through out the hotel but it was disturbing in mine.

We stayed here for 2 nights before our trip to Cape Cod and then for 1 night on our return trip before flying back home. The location is great. It's in a quiet neighbourhood near the subway and several restaurants. The decor in the lobby and breakfast area looked modern and clean. Wi-fi was a bit slow in the rooms... More

Spacious room, good breakfast and hospitable service. The only downside was the cost of parking, which I didn't expect to be as high since we were hotel guests. We had to pay for a full 24 hours although we were there less than 10 hours, which was frustrating. Bottom line - make sure you factor in parking when looking at... More

This may not be the most luxurious or newest hotel I have stayed in, but I felt its warmth and hospitality even before stepping through its front doors. I sent the hotel an email asking about some check in and parking arrangements; I received an extremely helpful personal reply from John the General Manager within 6 hours. Efficient! Situated very...

This is a typical Residence Inn property. My studio room was quite spacious and had a comfortable bed, a good shower and a nice TV. The TV had some satellite trouble with the NBC affiliate and that channel was hard to watch. My only big complaint was that the "free" wi-fi was virtually unusable about 10 p.m. on a Sunday... More

Needed a couple of nights in Boston as a transition between four nights in Provincetown and a flight home. Took a cab from Long Wharf ($20) and got in before check-in but the friendly person at the desk checked in our bags so we could find a place to have lunch. Kendall Square is close by (5-minute walk) and found... More

Stayed here overnight on a quick trip to Boston... Had a King Bed Suite... room was large, clean, and quiet. I can't comment on rates as I used points. The front desk was helpful with parking and directions. Breakfast buffet was large and had good selections. Was a great alternative while in town. There is a starbucks in the building... More

Great location. Within walking distance to many eateries and shops. Close to public transportation, and MIT. Room was larger then expected, and clean. Full breakfast was a plus. Would definitely stay here in the future if I get a chance to visit Boston with family.

This is a pretty standard Residence Inn, in a great location if you need to go to MIT. The room was clean and comfortable. It was quiet and easy to sleep. (I did need to close the bedroom door to stop noise from the refrigerator, and as usual I needed to switch the AC off.) The wifi worked well. Check-in... More
