My 10th floor room had a corner window and a view over the T on to the Charles River. The room was large, clean and nicely designed. Bath had an elegant floor light that turned on by motion sensor and turned off automatically with an appropriate delay. Concierge desk was quite helpful.

I stayed here 3 nights for the 2017 Boston Marathon. I found the room acceptable, albeit a little small, but since I was travelling solo it was fine. Evidently, from reading some of the other reviews, my room hadn't gone through the moderization process yet as the hotel was currently under renovation. I was alerted to this fact the afternoon...

Comfortable rooms, Looks like the rooms have been updated since our last visit. Very modern but - using the same door for the closet and bathroom where only one...

So let me start off by saying I normally stay at Hiltons but starting staying more at Marriotts because points and free rooms rack up a little quicker than Hilton but historically Hilton chains are superior to Marriott UNTIL I stayed here!!! Marriott has upped it's brand and the everything from the lobby to the backlights in the elevator have...

Excellent hotel, near a train station, great staff. If you you get/choose a high room you will get an excellent view from the city! It's like 20 minutes from Boston Airport and is on the MIT area and close to the Harvard Area where you can walk.

The hotel has improved significantly since my last stay a few years ago. The rooms have undergone a major makeover. I had been looking forward to staying at the Marriott mostly because of the location next to MIT and the T, but it turned out that it was a nice place to be in its own right. Great bed, shower,...

This is a nice property in general. Fast elevators, right next to the red line. It was rainy/windy/miserable weather when I was there and I couldn't get warm. So I decided to take a hot bath. However, because there is remodeling on at least one of the floor, the water was turned off, so what I got for water was...

Average hotel. Expensive in general. It is very convenient if you're studying at Sloan / MIT, the distance is short (2 blocks). The location is very calm and convenient in general. Red line is only some steps from the front door of the hotel.

The only reason I am giving this hotel 2 stars is because the location is great (the Red line is outside the front door) there's a Starbucks in the lobby and and it was convenient because my husbands conference was held there. Other than that- it was quite a miserable stay. The first night we got there, as I'm getting...
