I stayed in Cambridge for a week to attend a course at MIT. The location of this hotel was excellent and it offered the best value for the area without being ghetto. The rooms were clean and quiet and I slept great. I did have to change rooms once when I arrived; I had asked for a quiet room when... More

We were 5 people-- 2 adults, and 3 teen boys aged 12-15 for a weekend, and we were of course quite cramped in the smallish 1 BR suite. This was not a surprise--- we had reviewed the accommodations with the hotel and understood that the room would be just barely adequate for our group. The room does indeed has a... More

I have stayed here several times, and have always been pleased. The manager is phenomenal, and has a great staff on board. The rooms are spacious, and its nice to have the bonus of a kitchenette. Beds are comfortable. This is a great option for a girls weekend, a quick family getaway, or a quiet weekend without the kids!

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

It seems as if you took advantage of our location in the heart of Kendall Square, nearby to the local subway station and other vibrant neighborhoods. I understand that you... 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
