I stayed for a six weeks, business trip. I was impressed by the consistency of good service. I travel a lot and have rarely stayed at a place with such a friendly staff. Breakfast, front desk, housekeeping, management. Whoever I met!
To keep up this high quality of service over such a long time is outstandig.

Great hotel for a family reunion! Very helpful staff made our stay welcoming and fun. The rooms with two beds were great for gatherings, and the seating in these suites very comfortable. Will be back!!

We've stayed at the Residence Inn Boston Cambridge several times over the years, especially when visiting MIT or other parts of Cambridge (MA). We like the location close to the T station. Several food outlets are in close proximity.
This time we were given a room on the top floor (Level 12) and it was clean, comfortable and quiet. The carpets and several other furnishings were new, although not the refrigerator and other appliances. We noticed much of Levels 2 & 3 were under heavy renovation. We were told by the workmen that they had replaced the carpets, sofas, etc. on most of the floors and were nearly done. The result is that the rooms are now pretty nice compared to our last visit a couple of years ago.
As is typical of Residence Inns, you get complimentary breakfast and "happy hour" with the room rate, along with free WiFi. We found the prices reasonable though by no means inexpensive (we also stayed at a couple of other hotels on this trip and thought we actually got a better rate at a downtown hotel than the Residence Inn Boston Cambridge. That said we have no complaints about our stay and will definitely be back the next time we're in Cambridge, MA.
Finally, our favorite feature of the hotel is the guest laundry room on Level 2, with ample washers and dryers. It is clean, convenient and really useful when you're visiting Boston in the middle of winter.

Room Tip: High floor away from traffic noise.

Dear kwanghui,

Thank you for being a loyal and repeat guest. I certainly appreciate your taking the time to tell us about your recent stay. I am very glad that you were able to stay in one of our newly renovated rooms. The entire Hotel has been completed!

It is interesting that you note the appliances. I have just received approval to purchase some new appliances this year. This gives the Hotel an opportunity to evaluate any of our refrigerators and dishwashers that are not operating efficiently and replace them during the next few months. We also have several other investment projects planned this year to truly enhance the guest experience, including new beds throughout the entire Property. I look forward to you returning to enjoy our new rooms.

Thank you for the other feedback about the rest of the Hotel. I will be certain to share your comments with our staff at our daily meeting.

With kind regards,

John Wilmoth
General Manager

The Hotel was in a very bad condition. The rooms needed serious upgrading. The furniture was worn out. The internet was extremely slow to a point it was not usable. The lobby was just refurnished and the staff did mention that the rooms were going to get remodeled soon. I did complain about the internet connection to the staff and got an offer to stay again at the Hotel at a discounted rate and try the new internet connection. The Hotel is minutes away (walking) from Kendall Square and MIT.

Room Tip: Request a newly remodeled room

Dear AnaWaRefeginly,

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments about your stay in June of 2013. I am very pleased to announce that the Hotel is in the final days of completing our room renovations. The transformation of our guest rooms includes new furnishings, color schemes, carpet, draperies and bathrooms.

I apologize that you also experienced a poor internet connection while visiting last year. In the summer of last year, the Hotel replaced its entire wireless internet system, and we now offer multiple speed tiers to help you accomplish what matters most. After the installation of our new internet system and as a gesture of goodwill, I had made a discount offer to specific guests to return to the Hotel. I would be more than happy to personally reserve your next trip and apply the discount that was mentioned in my email.

I am looking forward to hosting you again on your next return trip to the area. I am confident you will thoroughly enjoy your stay.

Kind regards,

John Wilmoth
General Manager

Stayed at the Inn for two nights in October in a room for three while visiting son who is a MIT student. There was a kitchenette, extremely comfortable bed, sofa bed, and good breakfast. Did I mention there was plenty of room to spread out. It was an ideal location for proximity to MIT and the red line. The only negative was the room rate. Nearby Mead hall was a good spot to have a beer, but the dinners were expensive for the quality.

Dear Ursula21,

Thank you for staying this past October when visiting your son at MIT. I am so happy that you enjoyed the suite, especially the extra space in the room. Now that we have begun our total Hotel guest room renovation, the rooms are a great retreat after a long day.

I am sorry to hear about your experience at nearby Mead Hall restaurant. Next time you are in the area, feel free to ask the Front Desk for some local favorites including Champions Sports Bar at the Boston Marriott Cambridge next door.

When you return to visit your son at school, be sure to inquire about special rates set up for MIT visiting parents. I would be more than happy to be your personal contact as well!

I greatly appreciate your taking the time to post your comments to TripAdvisor about your stay. I hope to see you back soon.

Kind regards,

John Wilmoth
General Manager

If you have business with 1 or many clients in Cambridge, this is the perfect place to stay. Great, comfortable full suites. Walking distance to many sites, and an easy ride out from the airport using public transportation to Kendall Square.
