We once again stayed in the Residence Inn this time for the 4th of july. We arrived early and this time with our pet. The hotel staff at the front desk arranged a room immediately and we were able to have breakfast. I had always wanted to see the fireworks and was able to walk past MIT and be right...

The staff was not helpful. Additionally, according to the staff ALL the 2 bedrooms are tucked into a corner with claustrophobic view of the building next door. The internet was free but quite slow. At times, I had a hard time connecting with an iPad. I would stay somewhere else.

We stayed for only 1 night but wished we had planned to stay longer. The people at the desk were very friendly - especially Lorraine who was very informative and professional! The rooms are set up nicely ..one great room, but there s a natural divide between the "bedroom" and the sitting room/ kitchen area. I love Residence in b/c...

Great staff at frontdesk, Lorraine and other reception desk staff are just the best we ever had. Great rooms, good breakfast (considering it is complimentary and there are a lot of guest wanting to have breakfast at the same time) and good starting point for trips, subway and buses are just one street away. This is a must stay for...

We searched for a hotel that was near a T stop. This hotel is one block from the Kendall/MIT stop on the redline (two stops from Boston Commons). The Marriott next door to the Residence is directly in front of the T stop, but no free breakfast, so that was the decision point. They are about the same price. The...

We wanted to find a 2 bedroom suite while staying in the Boston area, and this Residence Inn is one of the few hotels that met that criteria. The room was clean and the furnishings were all in good shape. We were able to find several areas in the local area that were either in walking distance or a short...

I just returned from spending a Saturday night at this hotel. We were there for my nephew's lax tournament that was being held at Harvard and we were traveling with our dog.

I vacationed in the Boston area with family for a week and this was my second time staying at this property. This hotel was ideally located near the MIT/Kendall Square "T" stop which made it easy to see everything. The staff was helpful, rooms were clean. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit. The breakfast was so-so. Typical...
