The proximity to local shopping, historical sites and eating is suitable. That aside, the hotel was wonderful. Front desk reception were on hand to assist with everything we needed. This is a very ideal place to stay for families with young children or anybody that would like to have the amenities to do there own cooking/have a studio apartment type... More

Was here for a business meeting. The hotel was a block from campus, a block from the subway, within a short distance from a few really nice bar/restaurants and breakfast cafes. They had social gatherings and amenities galore. Perfect for the need. I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Stayed at the Residence Inn during January/2015 during part of my MIT program. It is really close to most of the MIT buildings and I had an excellent time at the hotel. Really recommend it to anyone studying or visiting Cambridge/MIT. I will definitely stay there on my next time in Cambridge. [+] Pros: Staff, staff, staff. They made sure... More

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.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2015

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

I was here to attend a meeting. Staff was great friendly professional and efficient. Property is nice and rooms are spacious, clean, well aired, and very well equipped. 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
