I stayed here on a work trip. As I was working down the road in Cambridge the location was super convenient, and since I was last in the area (about 18 months ago) there are lots of new places around which was great to see, including a great little bottle shop a short walk away. Meadhall is also a stone's...

Dear Krrr4, I would like to thank you for staying at our Residence Inn in Cambridge. The time you took to write a review on TripAdvisor is appreciated. This direct feedback about the two local restaurants is very useful, and I will make sure the Front Desk is aware of your experience. The neighborhood has grown so much, and we...

Stayed here for 3.5 months recently. I have mixed feelings about it. I'll start with the cons. My first impression was that it was unsatisfactory from the start. I changed rooms three times to find one that didn't reek of curry or some other foul cooking odor. I finally wound up on 15 and while it still smelled, I was...

Stayed here for MIT Parent's weekend. Large room compared to most hotels, kitchen, and great location. We were able to keep coming back to the hotel during down times from campus which was not an option when I stayed further away. No taxis needed - could either take the T or walk everywhere. For MIT parents, this hotel is very...

10" Black hairs on the floor of my bathroom, trash in the trash bin, dirty pillows, living room chair looks as if it is 10-years old, (so worn you can not sit in it without the material sticking into your forearms), and last but not least I come back to my room at 9PM and it was not cleaned.

Dear Brian C, First, I must apologize for the most dissatisfactory experience you have incurred during your recent visit. It is upsetting to me to learn of the numerous items you mentioned.

The rooms are huge, very big, both the 1 bedrooms and the double queens. It is great for an extended stay, to have adequate space to spread out and relax. The front desk staff are very good, extremely well trained, friendly, funny, welcoming, the managers too are terrific. The breakfast staff are absolutely wonderful, they keep the food hot, replenished,...

The location is perfect, close to the T and a short ride into Boston. The stay was a little pricey but the rooms were clean and well kept. We could not find a grocery or convenience store close by so if your looking to stock your refrigerator without going through the hotels services, plan ahead. The breakfast buffet was ok...
