Very spacious rooms, good standard Marriott quality. Nice to have kitchenette with full-size fridge and stovetop. Breakfast had good choices. Views not much, but that's not the focus. Steps from the Kendall Sq T stop. Easy walk to Central Sq are as well. A bit pricey, but again -- the location somewhat demands it. All things considered, I prefer the... More

This was a great place to stay; much less $$ than staying inside the Boston tourist zone (Copley, Back Bay...), and with a ton more neighborhood character (Meadhall across the street, Clover, Area Four, Flour). The hotel is comfortable (good bed, separate living area/kitchenette, 2 blocks from the T) with free breakfast (didn't try it) and OK free wifi. I'll... More

The hotel is very clean and everything was good, I would just call some attention to breakfast. I had the feeling that the ladies working at the breakfast are too slow for the job, they had two trays of scrambled eggs empty just seating on the table when I arrived for breakfast, then it took 8 minutes to get it...

This residence inn is first rate. Rooms are newly remodeled, very clean and very functional for business travelers. Strong internet connection worked well for streaming video (6.95 day up-grade from free internet). Buffet Breakfast was very good for hotels in this class and had lots of choices. Front desk staff were very friendly and efficient. Parking garage is adjacent to... More

I love hotels with kitchens. I have dietary allegies so I need to buy or bring food to eat. The staff was helpful and the restaurant kitchen. Could answer my questions about food. Great morning breakfast. We also enjoyed the last bbq of the season. They are conveniently located near the T so we could leave our car in the... More

The front desk people are nice, housekeeping polite and efficient,moth wise it is a Residence ain't that does not meet the standards of others I have used. The purpose of the extended stay property is to allow some semblance of home while on the road and this should include a reasonable kitchen. Ours was not the best, with no shelves... More

My husband, mother, kids (7 & 9) and myself spent a few days in Boston at the beginning of August. It is a beautiful venue. Room was clean, recent and well-kept, beds were comfy (although a bit too soft to my personal liking). The complimentary breakfast was pretty good - cereal, toast, bagels, English muffins, hot items (sausage, hash, eggs,... More

Had a two queen suite, which was perfect for our family of two couples and a child (who slept on a divan in the suite lounge). Hotel well located for metro into Boston city, and for the MIT area. Very good breakfast, and it's pretty much next to a sister Marriott hotel with a restaurant which was also convenient for... More

My 2 teen daughters and I stayed here recently for 2 nights while visiting Boston. We mainly chose this hotel because it had the best rates around and included breakfast.
