“Good Hotel with Convenient Access to Boston-Proper”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

Great room, with a great view on NYE. We were able to watch the 7:07pm fireworks before heading out for the evening. The lobby was under construction, so we had to check in on the second floor. My guess is that during a busier time this temporary relocation would get crushed due to limited space.

We skipped the hotel restaurant and opted to walk to the restaurants that are a 5min walk away. Great restaurants and easy to access. You also have two Starbucks that are very convenient.

The public transportation is down on the backside of the lobby, so while you are not in Boston proper you have easy access to everything.

We are planning to return during the 4th of July.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the water facing rooms.

Spent an overnight in early December with my two sisters and brother to celebrate his 50th birthday. We requested connecting rooms and were given a room with double beds connected to a living room area with a bedroom with a king bed-great views. It was great! Clean, roomy, living room area, quiet and comfortable. We did not have an opportunity to use the restaurants or the pool area. When pulling to the front of the hotel we were greeted by a valet who was friendly and helpful.
Upon entering the lobby the staff was friendly and welcoming.
When planning this weekend I was in touch with the online staff. The person I worked with was wonderful, helpful and accommodating. Nothing we asked for was impossible.
I feel the price of the hotel was reasonable, the location outstanding, staff excellent-a great place to have a great vacation!

I stayed in this hotel during new year, one night, my daughter was sick and vomit on her bed. Their staff came promptly and take care of the situation with the highest hygiene possible! We were so impressed and amazed the efficiency of their professionalism.
Plus, they have very clean, neat environment, right next to the T-Kendall station exit (Excellent if Boston has bad weather). Coffee in the room are easy to make and taste GREAT! Bottle water available for guests for free! 5 stars!!

There are some great aspects to this hotel. It is really easy to get to from the Red Line - and therefore from the airport. It is well placed for MIT. It has some stunning views over the Charles River (I was on the 22nd floor). The staff are helpful, my bed was very comfortable, everything was clean. The website hides away the fact that there's a swimming pool - so that felt like an added bonus. However, I resent being expected to pay extra for wireless Internet in my room. If it's free to someone who buys a beer in the bar, why isn't it free to people who are paying for a room without them having to go down 22 floors to use it? And I resent having $4.50 added to my bill for drinking the bottled water that was left out in the room without any indication it was an expensive optional extra.

We were in Boston for a wedding and found this hotel met our needs very well. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were super clean and had plenty of space. It was a great value. My only suggestion is that free internet be offered in the rooms, with a stronger connection. The front desk was kind enough to give us internet as a courtesy, but guests are typically charged. The service and food at the restaurant was also impressive. Highly recommend this hotel!

The Boston Marriott Cambridge is nicely located at Kendall Square and is only a short walk away from Harvard Square. The Kendall Sq. subway stop is right outside, which makes it extremely convenient. The hotel itself was under renovation when my wife and I stayed, but we didn't hear any noises. In fact, we found our room extremely quiet and comfortable. We loved it there. It was spacious, clean and felt fairly new, and we could see part of the Charles river from our window, which is always a plus. The bed, blankets, pillows provided excellent rest after our busy days walking around the city. The bathroom was also spacious, bright and pleasant. There was a relatively large TV with channels like HBO, ABC, MSNBC, etc. and the option of choosing other films for a fee. The only unwelcome surprise was the $12 fee for internet access. The service in general was good and professional. All and all, we really enjoyed our stay there and would happily return in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view to the Charles river.

A good hotel. reasonably priced, comfortable and clean rooms .. the prime advantage is the location: walking distance from MIT and the subway at the doorstep makes it an easy hop to Harvard.
Good eating options nearby, you don't have to rely exclusively on Champions and Starbucks in the hotel.
