Best Cambridge Location

The hotel was great, the location was even better. Take the "T" wherever you go, get a Charlie Card.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the "T" from the airport and back. From the airport, take the Silver Line (right outside baggage claim) to the South Station, transfer to the Red Line Outbound Alewife, and then get off at the Kendall MIT stop. Walk up the Main St. steps and you will enter the back doors of the Marriott. You will save more than $30.00 over a cab ride and get there much quicker!!!

Good hotel, excellent connections

The subway station is literally right outside which is 5 minutes from Boston Common. The trains run every 5 minutes and are cheap (if you buy a weekly Charlie pass). It's also two stops from Harvard in the other direction. We found the red line (which the hotel is on) to be the best of the subway lines. Once you're in town, most other places are walkable. The Au Bon Pain across the road (NOT the one in the food court) is excellent for breakfast, but there's a lack of places for an evening meal - Legal Seafood being the notable (and delicious!) exception. There's a mall 10 minutes walk away which was handy for a snowy day! The hotel itself is fine, it's a Marriott, you know exactly what you'll get which is fine, it's just a base at the end of the day. The staff were great, friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. We wondered about being in Cambridge rather than in Boston, but it really was not a problem, well worth staying here.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Public transport from the airport is *much* cheaper than a taxi. Took us 45 minutes from terminal to hotel at rush hour. Just jump on the Silver Line bus to South Station and switch to the Red Line (direction - Alewife) to Kendall which is right at this hotel.

Very enjoyable experience

The Boston Marriott is located in a very convenient location - within walking distance of several tourist attractions such as Fenway Park and Faneuil Hall. The locals are very friendly and accommadating. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. We would have preferred a little more room for our toiletries and a little more drawer space, but overall it was a very enjoyable experience.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The Fanuiel Hall marketplace is a must see. Lots of small pubs serving great food within a square block area, as well as lots of shops. The bottom floor of Fanuiel Hall has lots of great food and shopping too. The Duck Tour was a lot of fun and very informative - a must for visitors to Boston

good experience!

I really enjoyed the room as it very nice and clean. I felt they really tried to make their guest comfortable. The soaps in the bathroom were bath and body works, in all the hotels I have stayed in all the soap smells like a funeral home arrangement. this was a nice change! Room service was open till midnight. The food served was just "ok". The hotel was about 4 miles form the airport so I liked that. Make sure your taxi uses a meter, if he doesn't get out! you are about to be charge 3x the right amount. If you are looking for all the tourist attractions I would stay closer to downtown. A guest must either take a taxi, bus or the T(Subway) to see attractions. I would have rated it great if they offered free internet and more food options.

check in on time

You gotta check it on time: when you get there earlier, you'll not able to check in because rooms are not ready then.
