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

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

Dear jimmerhand, Thank you for being a loyal Marriott guest and for staying with us several times over the last few months. I appreciate your taking the time to post your comments to TripAdvisor. As you mentioned, a hot water supply pipe ruptured on a guest floor during the second week of December. We were very fortunate that this unexpected... 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.

While not in Boston, this location is great. It was a 10-minute drive to all the attractions we wanted to go see (though the parking once there is a beast!). It is close to the subway but since the temperatures were freezing and we have 4 little kids, we opted for the car. Our room was nothing too exciting but... More

They upgraded us without our requesting it and were just very nice all around. Quiet with good sized rooms. Though it's beginning to show its age. Breakfast included as well a small kitchen. The bedroom ded was comfortable, but the foldout was - well a foldout. Not horrendous, just a basic foldout

The first impression is rather good… friendly service and welcoming reception area interior with a comfortable breakfast room next door. However, the rooms disappoint. The furniture reminds me of a college dorm and apart from the large TVs the room’s interior looks dated and neglected. There were some 15 people in our group booked into this hotel and the consensus... More

Great value compared to hotels in downtown Boston, we walked into town (approx 25 minutes) when the weather was nice or caught the subway which was easy to navigate and only a few minute walk from hotel. Few restaurant and bar options nearby that were walking distance (10-15 minutes towards Harvard). Kitchenette in room was handy, and hotel has guest... More
