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

Each room has 2 queen beds and a couch all very comfortable. Clean rooms and common areas. Each room equipped with mini kitchen. Access to hotel right off Broadway in Cambridge. Easy access to both sides of city. Efficient for work or fun. Breakfast was adequate.

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

The Cambridge Residence Inn would earn 5 star reviews just for its comfort, cleanliness and superior location. When you factor in the charm, warmth and classiness of the staff, you wish you could add more stars. John Wilmoth is the general manager. He personally and graciously handled our gift certificate reservation and set me and my 10 year old nephew... More

Stayed in a two bedroom-two bathroom suite with very comfortable queen beds in each bedroom. Nice size living room, kitchen area. Housekeeping gave prompt, great service.

Pros: friendly staff; clean rooms, great location, large rooms, fridge, in middle of MIT campus Cons: very thin walls, somewhat outdated kitchen areas, pricey If you are staying in Cambridge I would recommend this place and the Marriott (which is basically next door). The Marriott is much nicer. However, if the Residence Inn is cheaper I would pick it. The... More

The room was clean, bed was comfortable. The lady at the front desk was the nicest person I have ever dealt with at a hotel. She was so kind checking us in and she gave us the room a bit early, which really helped us out. She also gave the 11 year old a very thoughtful little treat on the... More
