Went to Cambridge with family (5 of us in total) to prepare to move the family a few months down the road. We had stayed here in 2012 and we chose this place due to the proximity to the office (Kendall Square) and also the convenience of the space. However, with heavy renovations under way, I could not believed they charged $400/ night for a studio with 2 queens. The lobby was noisy when work was underway. The elevator took its time as one of the cars was used only for construction work. I tried to do a load of laundry of 3 days of clothes and half the machines were labeled out of order, while the machine I ended up using water-logged the load and required about 3 hours of drying. The linens in the room showed their age and the soap/shampoo amenities seemed to be a potpourri of leftover stock with a really weird scented conditioner. The good part was that the front desk was very attentive, receiving stuff on my behalf from a colleague and from Amazon. All the staff were especially friendly and they took the edge off the disrepair. Breakfast was included and nothing to complain about - standard Marriott fare - a little tiresome after 3 days, but as expected. Overall, would have been fine if the price had been about 40% discounted.

CRC_CAN, Thank you so much for your candid feedback. We apologize for the inconveniences that you had encountered during your most recent stay. I can imagine you were frustrated, and I can assure you that we understand. Our suppliers are having issues delivering certain items, which is cause for the "potpourri" of amenities in the guest room. Additionally, just this week we have started to implement the new furniture for the guestrooms that will certainly elevate the product. Lastly, we have listened to our guests from previous stays and are in the process of building a lounge at the hotel. The good news is, the loudest of noise is behind us, and pretty soon we will have a practically brand new hotel. We hope you give the Residence Inn an opportunity to change your mind in the future. Please reach out to me and I will be happy to upgrade your reservation.

Overall our stay was average. The room was relatively clean, although it was a little dusty - we kept sneezing from dust allergies. The bed was comfortable. The sofa bed was not so comfortable for our son. The other guests were noisy at night and walked the hallway making noise, kept our son up. The fridge and ice maker in the room is very noisy. Breakfast was okay, nothing to write home about at least it was a hot breakfast. The coffee was very low quality.

Dear HelpfulAngel Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience while staying with us. We are sorry for the issue with the dust. We are currently renovating and unfortunately, finding dust is lingering and appearing as though we have not dusted. I can imagine this was frustrating and I apologize. We are currently waiting on our new furniture and getting ready to begin our lobby renovation which will include upgrading our lobby and F&B offerings. I hope you choose to stay with us again when your travel plans bring you back to the area so that we can change your opinion of the Residence Inn's offerings. See you then! Jennifer Pendola General Mananger

Hotel was great. Room very spacious and recently updated. Usual super comfy Marriott bed. Workout room was one of the best I've seen with top notch equipment including a machine with pullup bar, which you don't often see. However, the best part of this property was the staff from check-in, to housekeeping, to the people working the breakfast area. Of special mention was Samia in the breakfast area. I had failed to properly grease the waffle maker despite the sign saying I needed to. In shame I attempted to cleanup the mess I had made of the waffle maker but knew it was going to take quite awhile. Samia came to the rescue. She graciously cleaned things up and then made me a waffle! That's what I call going above and beyond.

We were informed the day before our reservation that our room was not ready (they are undergoing renovations). They were accommodating and gave us two rooms for our family of five instead of the larger one room. The rooms were just so-so. They were very large and spacious which was nice. One of our rooms smelled very strongly of ethnic food which was the biggest complaint. The bathrooms were quite old, but since they are updating I assume the rooms we were in would be re-done soon. I always dislike when bathrooms do not have a ventilation fan and these rooms did not. The lobby was nice, breakfast was great. The location was in a nice area and a very quick walk to hop on the subway into the main part of Boston.

My first room smelled like patchouli so I was kindly moved to another room which was very large (wheelchair accessible). It looks like there is construction going on, so maybe they are renovating but this hotel needs it. Seems very tired and generally not very attractive. The desk staff were extremely nice and helpful.
