Editorial review:

A down to earth business hotel located in the Kendal Square Tower, which offers comfortable, high floors rooms which afford stunning views of Boston across the river, and easy access to the train station which is steps away from the entrance. But that is not all: there is an indoor swimming pool and fitness center, the service is very efficient, there is an on-site American bistro for dining, and 80's décor.

          The staff always pointed us in the right direction. Very helpful and cheerful!

          Value of room serve breakfast was lacking, not worth $35

          The room was spotless!

          There were a group of German people staying the room next to mine on the 26th floor. This group was partying and being extremely noisy all night long. I was forced to talk to them myself, finally after I called security, along with many other upset guests, a security guard came to their room and asked them to be quiet. 1/2 an hour later the group was back at it again and security never bothered to show up again. I could not sleep all night because of this noise. It was a very unpleasant experience.

          It is difficult to understand that this hotel, considering the amount paid, has no freezer in the room and the wifi is not complimentary

        • Family with children
          5.0

          The hotel was close to the subway, very fast to get downtown Boston

          The room bathroom was very small and not clean. The hotel did not offer extra facilities/comfort (I.E. free wifi, guest slippers, extra towels,...)

        • Single

          The location was excellent. A mbta station for the red line, which takes you to the beginning of the Freedom Trail was a few feet from the entrance to the hotel. Getting around the area without a car was very easy. We rented a car, but would not do so again, because the expense of parking was ridiculous, particularly considering the ease of using the subway.

          Initially, the valet and bell service was almost non-existent. We were practically ignored until I made an issue of needing help with our luggage. Later, we got better treatment, but only after my husband made sure to tip the bell captain excessively. A business person with little luggage who is traveling by taxi would be the best kind of guest for this hotel. A couple or family on vacation should not expect the service most guests in that situation would need.

          The location is very good, almost near a metro station, and in walking distance of MIT buildings. Hotel offers nice views of the city and the cambridge neighborhood with spacious well decorated rooms.

          It's really strange not to offer free wifi, when the surrounding area has free wifi provided from MIT. Even the small Starbucks store in the lobby hasn't. Really bad policy.

          10.0

          We arrived in Boston close to 7:00pm, extremely tired after a long drive. Our family of four were looking forward to spending a couple of days treating ourselves in the comfortable, clean rooms of the Marriott and having a break from a very stressful and hectic year back home. When we checked in the front desk initually had a difficult time finding us in the system. When we showed our print out with the confirmation number she agreed we had a room. When we got up to our room (1208) it appeared to have been cleaned however once we got in we found an open shoe box with it`s paper contents and plastc shopping bag on the table, earphones on the table and the wrappings to what looked like an iPad. One of the beds also looked as if it had been laid in and one of the cups in the sink area had been used. After calling the front desk, 2 cleaning/support staff arrived almost immediately and changed the sheets and took the garbage. Later that night the front desk staff delivered a note, wonderful bottle of wine and food gift basket! We want the hotel to know that we are so appreciative of your extra effort for making us feel wlecome after the interesting arrival. We were very grateful for the gifts as they were actually very much needed after being on the road for so long. The Boston Marriot Cambridge staff was wonderful - thank you!

          The restaurant charged a lot for a rather greasy, dull buffet for breakfast. We were seated at the back away from the main restaurant as overflow (which is fine - we understand the busy summer peak times), but it was a noisy, undeservingly expensive, rushed breakfast that was better suited to a meal at a truck stop diner and not a Marriot Hotel. That would be our only compliant. Otherwise the hotel and its staff were great. Thank You.

          The view

          Unfortunately this Marriott Hotel is not a good example of its network. It intends to be a executive hotel in a very important place in the US, but it's expensive (US$ 497.00 per day) without frigobar, some rooms don't have even a safe, and internet is not free (US$ 17.00 per day)!!! The employees are not prepaired to help guests and know nothing about the surroundings.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          We loved the location. We parked our car for the weekend in the adjacent parking garage and hopped on the subway just across the street. The bed was very comfortable, loved the extra pillows to lounge on, sheets and comforter were fresh, white and fizzy. We would definately stay again. We don't travel too often and mistakenly ordered room service for our complimentary breakfast. On checking out I explained this and was not charged, it was the right thing for the hotel to do. Thanks.

          Decent room.

          Everything was extra; $16.95 for WiFi for example (and that didn't really work).

        • Single
          7.8

          Easy check-in; friendly staff; great location

          No free parking; no free internet access - for the price I paid, I did not expect to have to pay extra for parking and internet.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Quiet & comfortable hotel, a bit far to walk to shopping & eateries. But we managed quite well.

          Not enough tea & coffee in room. Thin walls. We could hear all that was going on in the room next door, even when they were not yelling.

        • Single

          No hassels

          Internet access required a long time on the phone to the IT support resulting in my laptop configuration being altered for subsequent internet connections outside of the hotel
