Well, it's 8:55 and I have been checked in for about 4 hours. We drove 2 hours to Boston this morning, and spent about 6 hours touring two colleges, so I was a bit wiped out by the time I checked in at 5, and looking forward to some relaxation and the opportunity to take advantage of our Concierge level...

My company is located next door, so I'm often stuck staying here. I switched to Hotel Marlowe and had a MUCH better experience for a lower price. This trip Marlowe was sold out, so I came back to the Marriott. Not only have the rooms been the same for the 10 plus years I've been visiting, they are filthy! Last...

I recently stayed here for a conference and booked the room at a special conference rate. The stay was memorable for an entire night of a fire alarm blaring in the hotel. At the end of the stay they conveniently doubled the rate of the hotel and the hotel conveniently reported "they were committed to protecting their rates". Beware of...

We had poor directions from AAA but could see the hotel from across the river in Boston. As we pulled up to the wrong entrance the valet came right out to park our car. We checked in quickly and easily. The room was excellent with a nice view. We stayed there for a conference and had a gear continental breakfast...

While the hotel's location is great, you can die waiting for the elevators, especially when the hotel gets busy. My advice is to get a room on a lower floor. The rooms are fairly large and well appointed. But the hotel is dated. They remodeled the lobby, but not the rest of the facility.

The hotel is steps away from MIT and the Kendall Square subway station. The rooms are standard high quality Marriott rooms - modern and clean. Tip - Rooms located near the elevators get noticeable noise.

Can't say enough about our week stay there. The check-in was seamless. Mike at the check-in desk was outstanding. He helped us all week. First trip to Boston for these Southerners. Rado at the concierge helped with tours and restaurants.. Housekeeping was great! View from our room was awesome! Watched the sailboats on the river.

I stayed for one night before a cruise and I loved so much about this hotel! It has a full service Starbucks, a giant sports bar, a snack shop, a business center, comfortable spacious rooms with a fridge inside AND a corner window with a view!

The location is good - right at a redline "T" stop. Friendly staff. But...It is very expensive for an average hotel room. They charge for in-room internet which seems archaic in 2016. Free internet in the lobby so the lobby is a very popular place to be. Also, because it has conference facilities they tack on a conference center tax...

Dear CHS28, Thank you for letting me know about your recent stay at our Hotel.
