Boston Marriott Cambridge

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Check in went smooth. I was there for just one night. Went to a show. Not many places open late to eat afterwards.

I picked this hotel bec. I got an excellent deal from Orbitz flight and hotel combined. We arrived and got a warm reception during check in. Our hotel room was in the 8th floor and had a nice view of Cambridge, Boston. The room was clean and the bed was so comfortable. There was no refrigerator in the room as advertised. The sink did not have cold water but the hotel staff adjusted it when we complained. The next day they same problem happened but we let it go since it was only a 2 night stay for my kids swimming competition in MIT. We requested a late check out and they gave me a 1pm time. Upon knowing that some of my friends were given a 2pm late check out, me and another friend went to the desk to request a 2pm check out. Cameron gave my friend a 2pm but rejected my request. He told me that he was a Marriot gold member, however my other friends who were not members had a 2pm late check out. My son was not feeling well after the swim meet and needed to take a nap for the 4pm finals, but Cameron told me I can pay a half day rate and when asked who his supervisor was, he told me that he was the manager. They were not consistent, when in fact after I checked out at 1pm, I saw several of my companion checking out later than us even if they did not ask a late check out. I did not find the manager nice and kind. I told him that I will never ever stay in that hotel bec. the manager was heartless and was not considerate. My experience was not pleasant at all.

Great place to stay - we visited many of Boston's great spots with a little help from the subway system and a lot of walking. Beautiful hotel with many nice amenities.

Good area to walk to down town, MIT, and subway station.

I travel extensively. I never take time to do this. Will for this one. Mike is a concierge, desk clerk and travel guide rolled into one - like having a personal assistant on site. Terrific.

Exhorbitant rate charged for tiny, cramped room with no room safe, no working clock, no refrigerator. Very small bathroom and sink area. Location next door to Kendall Station is good.

Just next to MIT and red line. Perfect location. Clean and quiet

Good central location with access to the subway right out the back entrance. Was offered the use of their towncar service when no taxis were available. Valet service was lightning fast. Housekeeping found an item of ours after checkout and shipped it to us. Very impressed with the facility and even more impressed with the staff. Thank you!

Room is clean and tidy. Amenities are new and good. Staff is nice. Very good location also, 5 mins walk to MIT's main campus. Also about 15 mins drive to airport, very convenient. If living in a high floor and facing south, will get a good view of Boston downtown. Overall, recommended.

It was a fairly basic hotel room without many nice things but with a hefty price. Centrally located to the Red Line, Hubway bike rentals, MIT, and a good place to stay for trips into Boston. But really wasn't that nice of a hotel, especially for the price.

one night, all went well, nice facility..........................................................................................................................

Liked the hotel location but when I booked this room I was told we would have two double beds. Not so, only a queen with pull out couch. Paid extra for my daughter and husband to be with us, very cramped sito and I did not like the sleep arrangements.If I had known this ahead, we would of booked 2 rooms.

Great location next to MIT and 3min to Charles River. Friendly and effective staff. Pool area could be nicer

The train was right at the doorstep. This was great for weary travelers.

Very enjoyable stay. Close to "T". Try the Blue Room restaurant in the area

This hotel has a great location and good view especially I stayed at 26 floor! The subway was just next to hotel, which was really convenient. The laundry room was completely free and the hotel also provided washing powder. Moreover, I was very satisfied with the room which was really comfortable. The only thing I will complain is that there was no free in-room wifi unless you paid $12 per day. However, I could still use free wifi in lobby. In conclusion, I will definitely recommend this hotel.

Hotel was a GREAT location and was literally 30 seconds to the subway stop. It was easy to get anywhere in Boston in a few minutes. Will definitely be coming back.

The room was very clean with a really nice view. It was a little small, and there could've been more towels (we took some from the pool area because we only had 2 in the room). Besides that, the staff was very friendly, remembered our names and gave us great local areas to visit. The hotel is right in next to the train station, which takes you to the middle of the city in 5 minutes. Overall, I will be coming back on my next trip to this hotel.

Great value for the money. Room was clean, great view, & just very nice. Enjoyed the stay.. We were there to attend activities of our daughters' at MIT. Just a nice walk to anything on campus..

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