I am a Platinum Elite with Marriott and this is the first hotel where I noticed that their employees need some customer service training. At time of check in, dispite the fact I had already checked in via their APP for both of my rooms and also requested them near each other, the person couldn't locate the second room as...

I left my room at 9am and I took down the do not disturb sign. When I came back to my room after a long day of meetings, to my shock and horror, my room was not cleaned up. I then called the front desk staff and she replied that the housekeeping staff had left and nothing can be done....

This is a standard Residence Inn with large rooms, clean atmosphere and great location . It is generally less expensive downtown Boston hotels but the Red Line subway station is very close. In many suite rooms, the bed has no night table or light on one side of the bed, making it difficult for two people to read at night....

We stayed for the weekend in a two bedroom suite. We paid premium pricing. The room was specious and clean but nothing to write home about. It really could use an update, especially for the prices they charge. The decor and kitchen really need to be revamped. The location of the hotel was near a lot of restaurants & schools...

If you are going to be relocated then this is a good hotel with sitting room, kitchen, and bedroom. There is a small pool with a hot tub, and a small exercise room. They offer a complimentary breakfast and they offer something different every night in the small meeting area. None of the food is great as it tasted like...

Came to Boston for PAX East (gaming convention). The hotel is located 1 block from public transportation, which makes getting around so much easier. Joseph, a front end clerk, answered every question I had and he was pleasant. The breakfast in morning filled us up and was pretty good (please add bacon) Love the fact that Starbucks was connected to...

Had two room suite for business trip. Close to Kendall MIT T stop. Area has decent number of restaurants within walking distance but only one small convenient store. Lobby nothing special but dining area fairly big with free breakfast and evening food. Room was ok, big but bathroom was a little worn. Clean though. Fitness center small. Wifi decent, smart...

This was my second visit to the RI in Cambridge, though this one was a little longer -- two nights. The location is really convenient to many school and companies in the area, and there is a lot to do in the immediate area. The Front Desk staff on this stay really stood out. I interacted with at least four...

The hotel is at a safe and convenient location. About a 10 minute walk to the subway station which will take you into Boston or out to Harvard, etc.. It is within a 10 minute walk to MIT. Great breakfast, and nice clean quiet rooms. I highly recommend it for your stay in Cambridge.
