Historical Traveller Reviews of Boston Marriott Cambridge Hotel
overall good stayfrom Glinny
LOVED IT!!!!!!!!from 3footprints
Amanda was extremely helpful to obtain the connecting rooms we needed. The beds were very very comfortable. Nice amount of space. TVs were modern. Jean at the pool was helpful and polite! The place was clean. I even went into the pool!
The T is directly across the street.
I will always stay here when going into the Boston area.
Excellent Hotelfrom slickoperator
My room was a bit noisy because it had a connecting door to the next door room. I asked to be moved. It's typical of this hotel that they moved me immediately. Joanie on reception was responsible for this quick and efficient service and she deserves thanks here.
The servicing of the room was quick, discreet, and efficient, and the rooms are very pleasant.
One or two tips: there's a branch of Legal Seafoods next door. It's top of the Zagat guide. Well worth trying. I liked it so much I went there three times.
About ten minutes' walk away you can find the Kendall Square Landmark cinema. It shows a mixture of films, but if you like arty films that is a real find. You need to ask for directions before you leave the hotel; it's a little tricky to find first time, because you have to pass through Kendal Square and then walk past the car park. But it's well worth the trouble.
I stayed at the Marriott immediately after staying at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Boston, so had an interesting comparison. The day I arrived at the Hyatt because of a mess-up they made I could not be checked in until 6pm. By comparison I arrived at the Marriott at 6am and they checked me in without demur. The Hyatt Regency basically has just two eateries, one in the bar and one restaurant, neither of which are very inviting. The Marriott has two plus a Starbucks, plus an entire foodcourt which is open most of the day. Really much much better. The Hyatt is not far from the Downtown Crossing subway station, but you still have to leave the building and walk for a few minutes. You can walk just twenty feet under cover to the Kendal subway from the front door of the Marriott. Moreover, the Marriott is cheaper than the Hyatt. The service throughout the Marriott is more polite and courteous than that at the Hyatt, too. If I ever had the choice between the Marriott or the Hyatt I'd take the Marriott any day of the week.
I've stayed at the Marriott before, in 2003, and my stay in 2006 was even better. When and if I next visit Boston I'll stay there again.
Note that dining/bar options within immediate walking vicinity are limited. However, many more are available with a short train or taxi ride.

Excellent service, Great Locationfrom greggl
Ask for a high floor facing the Charles river. The view was spectacular, overlooking the river and the Boston skyline. The weekend we were there, the Cambridge area around the hotel was like a ghost town....We walked about 8-10 blocks to the new Cambridge mall and saw nobody on the streets.
The rooms are on the small side, particularly the bathrooms, but we were out and about most of the time. Our rate was $108, which is not bad for a city hotel. Parking (valet) was $25.00/day. I would stay here again.
Convenient Comfortfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms are currently undergoing a remodel. Ask for a remodeled room if possible. Our room was completely updated in stylish comfort. Many of the rooms have very nice views of the Charles river with the beautiful lights of Boston providing a reflective backdrop. Our king size bed was very comfortable.
The hotel's concierge sent us an email before our trip asking if we had any special requests. The staff was very responsive to the few requests that we did make which made us feel right at home.
As travellers without a vehicle, the best thing about this hotel was that is right across from a subway stop. It was extremely convenient to travel to dozens of destinations in Boston including Logan
Also, we found a great brunch on Sunday a few blocks away at a restaurant called "The Blue Room." You may want to call ahead for reservations as it seemed to be quite popular. I highly recommend it.
Great Locationfrom welshjonah

Top Local Tips for Boston
Kendall Square is red line on T Plan accordingly. Fun just to walk across lively-with-outdoor-enthusiasts bridge or stroll the lovely MIT campus, if weather nice. Seeing crew members out practicing on the Charles was a classic.
check out Basta Pasta ...off Central Square for high quality Italian pasta dishes at college student prices. Bit of a walk from the metro though.
Red-Line T Station is directly across the street. Very easy to get around.
