Over-priced Marriott in Cambridge!

Doorman was unfriendly; concierge was unfriendly and brusque; with tax and parking I paid over $250 for one night!

The Old Town Trolley tour was not a good choice for us; at one stop we waited 30 minutes while 3 full trolleys passed before being picked up!

Great price, great location!

Boston is a great town and this hotel was in a perfect location. The room was nice, the bed really comfortable! Great views. The bathroom wasn't working when we arrived but they fixed it right away. The phone also wasn't working but they fixed that as well. The breakfast buffet was great. Aside from one rude staff member, the staff was wonderful. It was definitely a good place to stay and would go back without hesitating.

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.

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

Dependable Marriott, friendly staff

I am unfamiliar with Boston, but this hotel didn't seem far from Logan Int'l - about 15-20 minutes drive at noon and 7:30am. I noticed a MIT bookstore, safe to say MIT is nearby. Great exercise room and pool that I wish I brought the right clothes for. The bistro on the 2nd floor only serves breakfast but the desk staff was quick to tell me about a sports bar on the property an other nearby options. My only real complaint is the dry air from the fan that ran continuously to maintain the temperatures.
