First time at Residence Inn by Marriott. We stayed at 2 bedroom unit. Very spacious, walking distance from subway. Full apt with full kitchen. Next to MIT. Breakfast with usual choices of scrambled eggs, yogurt, waffle maker, but Starbucks is next door if you prefer so.

We have had many good stays with Residence Inns in the past and this was no different. The hotel was easy to access from major freeways and there is a conveniently located parking garage that you can choose use ($40 per day, unlimited in/out, secure, and you don't have to deal with a valet). We checked in early and that... More

Breakfast is free and very complete. 4th night is free. Some apartments come with 2 bedrooms so you can split cost. Rooms are actual apartments with bedroom, 1 bathroom per bedroom, (so no sharing bathrooms), living room and fully operational kitchen with all utensils and dishware. Only 2 "T" stations from Harvard, round trip is less than $3, week pass... More

Hotel is conveniently located near MIT, Microsoft, and the MIT train stop. Also, wonderful amenities-gym is 24 7, and includes elliptical machines, bikes and treadmills. Breakfast is complimentary everyday, and Monday through Wednesday evenings the hotel offers dinner.

Stayed at this hotel on August 31, 2016. The hotel lobby was clean and inviting. It was not large or grand but was nice. There was a little store/area on the side of the front desk where you could get drinks/snacks for purchase which was convenient. Parking was available, for a fee, behind the hotel. It was $40.00 per night... More

This is a busy location with easy access to the T, right at MIT, near Harvard. Note - no convenience stores or pharmacies nearby, so if you want to buy some snacks, drinks, etc., there is a CVS at the MGH T stop (1 stop before Kendall-the one you want to use for the hotel). Love the included breakfast, staff... More

Typical Residence Inn. Room was pretty standard. Furnishings were pretty beat up. Pool was taken out of service and staff didn't know much about. Pool area needs maintenance (walls). Room did have safe in it even though staff said it didn't. Great location. T right around the corner. Took kids kayaking on the Charles. Rentals right down the street.. FABULOUS!... More

What I both love and hate about Marriott brand hotels is they're pretty much the same everywhere you go, it's good though because you get that familiarity anywhere in the world which is kind of the point! So if you've stayed at one you've stayed at them all (by brand - residence inn are different than say full service Marriotts).... More
