One if the fewer options for family of 5 - studio with 2 double beds and sofa bed. Room was spascious and clean well appointed. No fan in the bathroom. Breakfest with a lot of choices as good as you can expect in this type of chain. Close to Boston so it was sufficient for 1 night. Asked for sofa-bed... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful. We checked in very late and the staff had everything ready for us. There was free wi-fi for guests, it gets a bit tricky because everyday I'd have to forget the network, restart the phone, and then sign in again, but it was manageable. The breakfast was good, but the best part was... More

My 3 Top Things to Say: staff was warm and genuine, the hotel itself was chic and fitted the neighborhood well and the proximity to historic sites, dining, shopping and campuses/business of interest was great. We traveled with nine high school students and everyone enjoyed the locale and amenities. Would recommend and stay there again.

I had the pleasure of spending four (4) relaxing nights at the Marriott Residence Inn Cambridge in Massachusetts. The Residence Inn Cambridge is near the Kendall/MIT Station with lots of shops and restaurants. Check-in was quick with Ms. Natalia at the front desk, who greeted me with a warm smile and welcome. Ms. Natalia was also kind enough to deliver... More

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.

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.

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
