We stayed here for a few nights while visiting colleges in the area. Just a short walk to MIT and the Kendall Sq T stop is right across the street from the hotel. There are many positives to this hotel, here are the pros: - Close to colleges, restaurants (Legal Sea Food) - Service is outstanding. Used the mobile app...

The rooms are comfortable and we had a great view of Boston across the Charles River. The shower was excellent. We did not spend much time in the room. It is a little inconvenient from the north end and Charlestown but uber helps

The staff was excellent, very friendly and attentive. The location is great, being walking distance from many of the best Cambridge restaurants, bars, and attractions, including the Charles River. I really liked the design of the new rooms, but unlike some other reviewers, I was there for fun so didn't pay close attention to the lighting. There was lots of...

Positives -- staff was friendly and rooms were remodeled. Negatives -- remodeled rooms aren't super functional and are all really dark. Despite impressive cabinetry in both the bedroom and bathroom, there is *one* drawer in the entire room and even that is poorly designed (you cannot have the one drawer and bathroom door open at the same time, leading to...

Dear JLR819; I was disappointed to learn that your recent stay with us was not perfect. I am glad that you found our staff to be friendly and the rooms to be new and up to date. I regret that some of the design features of the rooms intended to make innovative and efficient use of the space resulted in...

I understand the need for renovation and have stayed at this Marriott a few times previously however... whoever designed the new rooms needs to hear not all of us enjoy it. Several of us in our group were sharing the same dislikes for this reno. First there is very little light on the desks. It is up above and ambient...

On hearing I had been booked at a city Marriott my first reaction was not one of great satisfaction but, I am happy to report that this was quickly overcome in entering the door. Quick, friendly and competent staff rapidly got me to my room which was surprisingly comfortable, quiet and well appointed. Lobby area and elevators are perhaps a...

If you are visiting the dons or students of MIT, the famous Broad or Koch research facilities across the Charles River from down-town Boston, you couldn't find a more convenient hotel. A comfortable walk across a rather long bridge also brings you rapidly to the historic center. The rooms have been refurbished and are comfortable although I found the ceilings...

Was in Boston for a Wedding. Inside, the lobby is spacious, bright, and the staff was friendly, even when checking in at 11pm on a Friday night. Room was looking upon the Charles River which was nice. Rooms are clean, spacious, and comfortable. Staid for 2 nights, when the rooms were cleaned, the service was great, no complaints.

My 10th floor room had a corner window and a view over the T on to the Charles River. The room was large, clean and nicely designed. Bath had an elegant floor light that turned on by motion sensor and turned off automatically with an appropriate delay. Concierge desk was quite helpful.
