Attentive customer service is a standout.

Posted Aug 31, 2015
Besides that our room was clean and fresh and that the bed was extremely comfortable, the warm hospitality and personalized customer service took our experience from great to greatest. The front desk extended my parking free of charge past check-out time because I was afraid I would not return in time from dim sum in Boston. After I had checked out, when I thought I had left my wallet in the room, they immediately dispatched a housekeeper to check while I waited on the phone and later accompanied me to let me check the room myself. (Wallet was in the car, duh!) It's not too much of a walk to Harvard Square, just 15 minutes!

Friendly Staff!

Posted Aug 23, 2015
Pros: location, staff
Cons: free breakfast
The staff was very helpful and friendly - I was impressed. The hotel was clean and nice, as I would expect from a Marriott property.. Disappointing that we would have to pay for breakfast - so we went out to eat instead. Rather has a fresh cooked meal than reheated food.

Nothing bad to say

Overall, a nice hotel. Rooms are just fine. Location isn't close to much, so you'll need a car or transportation to get anywhere, but otherwise, perfectly acceptable.

the room space is good. The people in reception is very nice and helpful. The only problem is that the air conditioning is right beside the bed and we have to cover it at night otherwise the cold air will directly blow into your body. The bed is queen size and very comfortable. the location is ok.

Nice hotel. Close to Harvard Square

Posted Aug 9, 2015
Pros: The room was nice and clean. Our view (12th floor) of the river was fabulous! Everyone on the staff was super-friendly and extremely helpful.
Cons: Open the pool!!!!!
Location: Awesome location, especially if you like to walk. Also, it's away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet there's a lots to do.
The hotel was in walking distance of Harvard and Harvard Square, where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. There are also a dunkin donuts, trade joe's, and whole foods wtithin walking distance. Also, the Charles River is right across the street, with a wonderful walking/biking path.

Room

I was unhappy with the room that I received. I book a room with two queen beds but I received a king with a cot for three adults.

Best Part....next to a Trader Joe's and Starbucks!

Posted Jul 28, 2015
The hotel was fine, but it was hard to get over the $35 cost for parking! The gates didn't even close so my car wasn't in a secure parking lot. I just don't get it.
