If you are going to be relocated then this is a good hotel with sitting room, kitchen, and bedroom. There is a small pool with a hot tub, and a small exercise room. They offer a complimentary breakfast and they offer something different every night in the small meeting area. None of the food is great as it tasted like...

Came to Boston for PAX East (gaming convention). The hotel is located 1 block from public transportation, which makes getting around so much easier. Joseph, a front end clerk, answered every question I had and he was pleasant. The breakfast in morning filled us up and was pretty good (please add bacon) Love the fact that Starbucks was connected to...

This was my second visit to the RI in Cambridge, though this one was a little longer -- two nights. The location is really convenient to many school and companies in the area, and there is a lot to do in the immediate area. The Front Desk staff on this stay really stood out. I interacted with at least four...

I stayed here last week for 3 nights during a work trip. The lobby was ok and the people at the desk were helpful. The room had stain on the carpet, a long black hair in the shower, and rust around the shower drain. On the second day I asked to move and I was given a key to a...

The hotel is at a safe and convenient location. About a 10 minute walk to the subway station which will take you into Boston or out to Harvard, etc.. It is within a 10 minute walk to MIT. Great breakfast, and nice clean quiet rooms. I highly recommend it for your stay in Cambridge.

It was one of the more affordable options near kendall. The room was big with a pull out sofa bed. There's a tiny kitchen with utensils. The free breakfast menu was extensive but seating was limited, so best to go early.

My wife and I head to Boston yearly for an Anniversary trip in January. I chose this hotel because I had points as a Marriott rewards member and it offered breakfast and access to the T. It's a great place to stay, for sure. Clean room with a fully stocked kitchenette as a bonus. Bed was comfortable and room temperature...
