I selected this hotel because my son was participating in a track camp at Harvard for the weekend and this was the hotel the camp had reserved rooms at. I am a Marriott Gold member but I think that is meaningless at this particular property. I arrived at the hotel early; 9:00 a.m. because my son had to be at... More

Stayed here for a week with my family. First and foremost, the entire staff at the hotel is probably one of the friendliest you'll come across. They always have a smile and are ready to help you in any way possible. Breakfast is decent and the snacks they had Mon-Wed nights were good. Hotel is conveniently located to everything in... More

We specifically stayed at this hotel to be able to walk to the river and see the fireworks and it was the perfect location. The two bedroom suites are very large and comfortable and there is an on-site starbucks.

Dear DCKirby, Thank you so much for joining us for another incredible Boston 4th of July. I am very pleased to hear that you and your family enjoyed the extra space in our large Two Bedroom Suite for America’s Birthday.

We stayed as a family of four - very roomy and extremely comfortable beds. Convenient to the T and very easy for visiting Harvard without the congestion of Harvard Square. Highly recommended for family or business visits in Cambridge.

My husband was so disappointed he hadn't learned about this hotel earlier - he'd traveled a couple times and after seeing this place would have stayed here his previous visits! Very nice, suitable suite. Comfortable bed, bathroom was spacious (water closet was rather small though). Pool is small but a nice amenity. Close to several restaurants (within walking distance).

I was here 2 nights for the BU graduation weekend. 14th floor. Very quiet. Didn't hear a sound. Elevators have a decent speed. No valet parking - parking is in a public ramp behind the hotel (not accessible from the hotel) but a quick walk around the block. Unload before parking. No doorman. Great location adjacent to MIT. Clean, safe.... More

Was here with the whole family and had a great stay. We have been at other Residence Inns before and this one was modern and newer. Staff was friendly. Carpark very convenient. Breakfast was in the lounge - really nice and cosy. No complaints at all.

I stayed here for 4 nights on a business trip recently. It's a perfectly reasonable and decent hotel with the usual facilities available; check-in staff were lovely, room was large with kitchen and sofa, breakfast was pretty basic. However, this room (room 1006, and maybe others too) has a major issue with noise from pipework in the vicinity of the... More

The hotels in Cambridge are disgustingly expensive, and those around MIT even more so. However, I booked this hotel half a year in advance and got a "decent" rate by Boston standards. The hotel is very clean, the room/suite well laid out and the breakfast much better than the usual fare at a Residence Inn. All in all, a great... More
