Fun place for a bachelorette

The concierge was very helpful when we asked for local breakfast sit down places. They were also understanding about our splitting the room rate.

Family getaway

The hotel was nice. However they said that this company was the problem. We had a large party and two rooms. However they said we couldn't have two beds because we book through this company.

Practical, right by Kendall T stop

For taking care of affairs at MIT, this hotel's location can't be beat. It is located right next to the Kendall stop and pretty much on MIT campus. I had great views over the Charles river from my room on the 20th floor. The room was quiet and clean, the bed comfortable. Also--the elevators were very fast. And there is a Starbucks inside the hotel.

Good hotel at a great location, cool view

Typical Marriott hotel, great location just across the bridge from downtown Boston in Cambridge. If you get one of the higher floors, you have a really nice view acrosss the inlet between Boston and Cambdrige. Room was good, except for the A/C which produced way too much draft in the room.

Nice rooms, but somethings in the air....

The rooms have a nice arrangement in that each room has a "corner view". We were happy until we all started sneezing and coughing. There was some dust or other allergen in the air (I do not have allergies). We all ended up with stuffy noses which cleared up once we left the hotel. Hmmmm......maybe they need to clean out their ventilation system. Other than that, I would have given it 4 stars. The staff was so pleasant, room service was quick and reasonable, and everyone was very helpful, kids had a blast in the smallish but fun pool. Exercise room was great.
