The rooms are huge, very big, both the 1 bedrooms and the double queens. It is great for an extended stay, to have adequate space to spread out and relax. The front desk staff are very good, extremely well trained, friendly, funny, welcoming, the managers too are terrific. The breakfast staff are absolutely wonderful, they keep the food hot, replenished,...

The location is perfect, close to the T and a short ride into Boston. The stay was a little pricey but the rooms were clean and well kept. We could not find a grocery or convenience store close by so if your looking to stock your refrigerator without going through the hotels services, plan ahead. The breakfast buffet was ok...

My husband was attending a class at MIT and my kids and I decided to join him on the weekend. He was staying in a 1bedroom suite all week and we stayed in the same room on Thursday night. We requested a rollaway. It was tight but adequate space. On Friday, we reserved a larger room for the weekend. They...

I stayed here using my Reward Points because there's no way I would have paid the actual price. This hotel offered several great perks which might make it worth the price for you. First, the room was well-appointed. It had a kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator with freezer, dishwasher, microwave, cooktop, and lots of utensils. The kitchen spilled into the...

We had a great 5 night stay at the Residence Inn in Cambridge. As a family of 5 that prefers suite hotels, the options in downtown Boston are limited. Loved our two bedroom, 2 bath set-up at the Residence Inn- it gave us plenty of space to spread out, the convenience of a kitchen for the insatiable appetite of our...

We stayed for four nights for fall break mid October. Perfect for a family of four (kids 11 and 13). Five-minute walk to the T red line Kendall/MIT station, but an easy walk across the Longfellow bridge to the heart of the city. We also walked to the Museum of Science, Boston public library, and to Harvard, although you can...
