Conveniently located a mile from the stadium and a 30-minute walk from there and other restaurants near Harvard Square. Elevators can be slow because the hotel is very popular and crowded. The bed and shower are wonderful and the room is very comfortable. Service is friendly at the front desk and in the "grab and go" self-serve market with many... More

The rooms in this hotel are reasonably large. There is a good sized TV, coffee machine, and a couch (and of course, beds). However, the hotel seems to have seen better days, and some things were pretty worn out: The toilet seat and the doors in my room, for example. Other than that, the staff are helpful, and the location... More

Very good location and great staff. Hotel very clean. The TV was GREAT BUT NOT AWESOME!!!!! MLB would make it awesome. They offer a lot of SPORT channels which many other Marriott properties DO NOT. They offer NESN for REDSOX, NHL Network, NFL Network, NBCSN, FS1, GOLF, but NOT MLB which is HUGE for Summer baseball watching. They also have... More

Stayed here for a football weekend road trip with friends. Nice Marriott property with a free shuttle ride within a few miles radius. Friendly front desk service and our shuttle driver named "Cadillac" was entertaining and personable! Rooms were typical Courtyard sized. First assigned rooms had broken air conditioning so we were moved to another room. Check your bill though...they... More

The exterior is bland/ugly. Don't let this fool. The interior was remodelled a year ago and the rooms are wonderful. They're small, but highly functional and well apointed.

I stayed here on a business trip to Harvard in Sept 2016 and I must say this is the lowest quality Marriott I've ever stayed in.
