Stayed there for 2 weeks last year. Rooms were great. Location was good, a short walk to the T .The breakfast buffet had a good assortment. The bathroom was a little congested, they could have made it slightly bigger.

Stayed 5 nights in a one-bedroom suite (queen bedroom and sleeper sofa in the living room). Three of us stayed there and enjoyed a nice quiet sleep on a high floor. Early in the morning, construction on the building next door would begin but it wasn't too terribly loud. Our room was clean and the housekeeping staff accommodated our request... More

I stayed at this hotel for 1 night. The location right next to the MIT campus was a great advantage for me. My stay was pleasant, the room was very large and included kitchen amenities. The sleep quality was good and the TV channel selection was also good. I give it 4 stars because of the following, relatively minor issues.... More

Dear hexalite2k5, Thank you for staying with us recently, as you visited the area. I am glad that you found our location convenient to MIT, and am also appreciative of the comments you provided.

We stayed at the Residence Inn Cambridge over Memorial weekend. The hotel is going under renovations but we didn't see much going on as we visited over a holiday weekend. We had two rooms and both were spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. It was nice to have a kitchen with a full refrigerator. The breakfast was very convenient as we... More

Stayed one night using points in a one bedroom suite with a queen bed and sofa bed. It is a typical residence inn layout. Nothing to complain about. Took the T to the Marriott down the street, then walked to the hotel. There are several dining options nearby. The room was very clean, and furnished well, with some cute art... More

Only stayed one night but the location and room was large and great. Very clean. The lobby renovations are almost done. 2 blocks to the T. Parking is $30 if you need it. Breakfast was included. I'd definitely stay here again. We didn't have much interaction with staff other than check in and that went quickly and efficiently.

I stayed here on a business trip, for two nights last month. There is a great deal to recommend this hotel, even with renovations going on. The location is terrific. It's on the eastern side side of Cambridge, in what's known as Kendall Square. It is adjacent to the MIT campus, the many hi-tech companies that have sprung up around... More
