We stayed during the MIT Splash 2016. Even though it was extremely busy, Marriott never disappoints. The staff made the stay! Everyone at the front desk was so friendly and helpful. The cleaning staff were friendly and our room was immaculate. The breakfast service was delicious and the wait staff was lovely. If my daughter does end up going to... More

We almost always stayed at the Cambridge Residence Inn when visiting our daughter in college there, but hadn't been there for a while since her graduation a few years ago. The Residence Inn is as good as ever. The common areas were remodeled recently - a nice facelift although the traffic patterns through the breakfast area aren't the best and... More

I stayed here for one night in October 2016 for work. I have stayed here once before and had forgotten how nice a hotel it is, right in the heart of Cambridge. The rooms are great: quiet, nicely furnished, well maintained, and comfortable. The hotel's rooms all have two rooms. There is an entry room. This is a combination sitting... More

Clean suite, enjoy having a living area separate from the bedroom/bath. The staff at the check in desk were great. They gave me a good recommendation for dinner, and was able to even enjoy the dessert hour afterwards. Breakfast in the morning was ok, the eggs were served up fresh but I couldn't get them to stay on the fork... More

Overall, a very solid residence inn. The location is great in that you are next to the Kendall MIT station (a block) and right on MIT campus if that is why you are going. Staff were super friendly. Rooms were in the process of being updated and overall comfortable (although sofa bed was not the best). Rooms were quiet and... More

This has to be one of the best hotels in the Boston/Cambridge area. The rooms are clean. Close to Boston and surrounding colleges to visit. Plenty of places to eat nearby. The only problem is the construction that is going on nearby. The gym is small but good enough. Parking is pricey and a little tricky to get into. Felt... More
