Overall, a very solid residence inn. The location is great in that you are next to the Kendall MIT station (a block) and right on MIT campus if that is why you are going. Staff were super friendly. Rooms were in the process of being updated and overall comfortable (although sofa bed was not the best). Rooms were quiet and...

Excellent location, you are almost on MIT campus. Rooms are nice and clean. It is like having your studio with a kitchen. The morning breakfast will remind you of your dorm days. If you like walking it is perfect, we used to walk till Harvard Square. Metro is close by too. BTW, there is a huge construction going on right...

Dear Praveen C, I am so glad to know that you took advantage of our central location. Thank you for choosing us on your recent visit. The local subway stop just 1 block away certainly gives a lot of options for touring Cambridge and Boston. The local area continues to boom with new additions, and I am hopeful the nearby...

This hotel was perfect for our recent trip to MIT. Parking was easy and our room was ready for check-in the morning of our arrival. Being able to settle in and freshen up before we were due at MIT made a huge difference! The staff was helpful and friendly. Our room was spacious and clean. We had a comfy bed...

This has to be one of the best hotels in the Boston/Cambridge area. The rooms are clean. Close to Boston and surrounding colleges to visit. Plenty of places to eat nearby. The only problem is the construction that is going on nearby. The gym is small but good enough. Parking is pricey and a little tricky to get into. Felt...

This was perfect for what we needed. It was much more economical than most of the other hotels in the area. It was a mini efficiency suite, with a separate bedroom and a sofa couch. We found it to be very clean and the people are very friendly and helpful. The room boasts free breakfast in the morning. Don't get...

First time at Residence Inn by Marriott. We stayed at 2 bedroom unit. Very spacious, walking distance from subway. Full apt with full kitchen. Next to MIT. Breakfast with usual choices of scrambled eggs, yogurt, waffle maker, but Starbucks is next door if you prefer so.

We have had many good stays with Residence Inns in the past and this was no different. The hotel was easy to access from major freeways and there is a conveniently located parking garage that you can choose use ($40 per day, unlimited in/out, secure, and you don't have to deal with a valet). We checked in early and that...
