Great for being around Boston

I stayed here after having shoulder surgery. I wanted to stay near Boston in a room that had a kitchen, living room and seperate sleeping area. It was great. There were coutyards to sit in on a nice day just to be outside. Restaurants and public transportation are within blocks. Anyone who wants to have easy access to Boston with as much comfort as home should consider staying here. I made myself comfortable on the couch. I also moved from the couch to the high back computer chair. I also brought alot of food from home because I didn't want to eat all take out. The kitchen had pots, pans, dishes, bowls, etc. The staff was helpful and courteous. Anything I needed was immediately delivered.i would definitel stay herw again. The complimentary breafast is GREAT. Way more than a bagel and coffee. Scrambled eggs, home fries, waffles, cereal, fresh fruit, juice,etc. A pleasant surprise.

Bed and breakfast in Cambridge Center

We spent a long weekend here visiting our daughter; not our first visit. The hotel is doing renovation of some of the rooms but we've never had a problem with the rooms here. At first, we had difficulty in getting hot water, but the hotel quickly took care of the problem. The big plus here is an excellent free breakfast, daily newspaper (even Sunday) and free wifi, so overall, it's usually a very good value. There's no bar or restaurant in the hotel but plenty of both nearby, and the proximity to MIT and Kendall Sq. metro is excellent.

Attractive price, tired infrastructure

Spacious room with fridge, dishwasher etc. but the AC rattled constantly and most of the water from the 'shower' actually came out of the bath tap. Staff were friendly.

A Good Choice

This hotel is comparatively reasonably priced for its proximity to the MIT and Harvard Business School campuses. The lobby was undergoing renovation, but staff went out of their way to meet customer needs. The room furnishings needed updating but were satisfactory. We were here during the Boston bomb attacks, making it an atypical time to evaluate a hotel. Overall, we were pleased with our choice.

Residence Inn

Perfect place to stay in Cambridge. Easy access to the T and to downtown Boston. Staff was friendly and they do have laundry facilities. The only drawback was the lack of restaurants that were in walking distance, but it is on the MIT campus. Looking past that, I would stay here again as it was a nice hotel.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you are staying in the Boston area, don't rent a car as parking is scarce and costly if you find one. The MBTA has a $15 link pass for the trains, buses, and inner water taxis for 7 days. I used mine all the time and got my money back pretty quickly. You can get from the airport to this hotel within an hour of landing and not get lost if it is your first time to Boston.

close to MIT

Hotel is very nice and clean, is in a safe area and close to the T-line. Rooms are very spacious and well equipped. Only complaint is that the breakfast buffett got to be a little bland after a weeks stay. The restraunt staff is very nice and helpfull.

Comfortable Stay in Convenient Location

The hotel stay was good. The breakfast buffet was kept well stocked. I would have preferred some healthy cold cereal options besides Raisin Bran, but still a good deal for the money. When we requested service on the room, the maid provided good service as well.

Average, with a lot of amenities

The room comfort was the primary negative of our stay at the Residence Inn. The air conditioning was under maintenance while we were there and Boston had record high temperatures. The room was unbearably hot. We had to leave the window open and unfortunately there was construction right outside that began at 6 AM every morning. Aside from this, the breakfast was fantastic and free, the housekeeper was friendly and very thorough, and it was nice to have a full kitchen to use.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are visiting for a week, do not rent a car. It is very simple to ride the T and for $15 you can ride it as much as you like for the whole week. I'm from the Midwest and have never taken public transportation and had no problem figuring out the T. It is very user friendly.
