Great japanese restaurant in the hotel and great staffGenuine Expedia guest review
went to see tom petty at fenway park. It was an easy 1.5 mile walk of a quick 10 minute cab ride. Breakfast buffet was great and all the staff wonderful. Highly recommend staying here should you need a Htoel cloe to beam town but not IN bean town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location to MIT. $5.00 shuttle per day was a nice and unexpected convenience. We even invited one of my son's friends to come to dinner with us and the driver was nice enough to drop them off at school and return me to the hotel with NO extra charge. I didn't eat breakfast in the hotel (too expensive)) but loved the beds, view and desk staff (who […] gave me a complimentary shuttle ride back to Kendall Square so my son and I could get to the airport. The packets of complimentary treats and water were also a VERY lovely touch. Loved my stay there and would happily stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel and location"

"Perfect place to visit Boston"
Near Harvard , MIT and Boston University. Facing Charles River. A little far from the subway, since you have to cross the river and take the bus at Boston University.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were please with everything! Staff over-the-top!! Very comfortable bed..felt like we were sleeping on a cotton ball. Very cozy room- end room facing the Charles River. Quiet. Very clean. My only wish is for the hotel to be closer to the T...only a ten min. walk to Central Station but little unnerving at night. In a perfect world, would love train […] to be closer. Would stay here again. Lived in Boston years ago and it's fun to come "home".good place to call home for the night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good value in Cambridge"
The hotel was very nice, clean, and convenient. It was a good value for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient hotiel near Cambridge sites and neat T"
really enjoyed the location - was great for driving, with easy on/off to mass pike and storrow drive) and also for public transitGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location for walking to Harvard Sq, MIT, Fenway Park (we like to walk). Only downside was paying to park, but I guess that is to be expected for any hotel in or near the city. The view of the city from our room was beautiful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good room Good Value"
Great room. Good location. Courteous staff. Good for a quick trip to the Cambridge area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall met my needs"
Clean and very nice personal service. Looking forward to the new renovations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy to get on and off the highway."
When we have gone to Boston we have usually stayed more outside he city area to avoid the stress of driving in it. However this hotel was very easy to get on and off I 90. It was a half hour walk to Fenway or there were plenty of taxis which were very reasonably priced. It is also about a 12 to 15 minute walk to a T station if you prefer that option. […] The rooms were very clean and the staff was very helpful. The pool was a little worn but did enjoy a swim. The beds were ok for comfort. That could be improved some. There is a Starbucks less than a block away. Also very near by are Dunkin Doughnuts and Trader Joe's. We used these as a less expense option to the hotel breakfast.

"Close to Harvard"
Hotel is a 3 star but the hotel restaurant is a Japanese Restaurant. Limiting, since there isn't another restaurant within easy walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall experience was great. The pool is very small and not appealing.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our room did not get cleaned until 4:30! We had to go sit by the pool and wait to enter the room. Pool did not seem much cleaner.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to Harvard square"
I'll go back again , only problem I had was I ask for roll over bed and was not given even it was booked in advanced .......Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel; isolated location"
The hotel staff were friendly and efficient; room was clean and reasonably appointed. The Japanese restaurant located in the hotel was frankly poor; breakfast buffet was fine if somewhat overpriced. The hotel is located within walking distance (depending on your degree of fitness and fatigue) of approximately zero restaurants. Cab it to Harvard Square […] for dining.

"Good choice for the price."
Not the fanciest place, but certainly comfortable and fairly convenient if you pay for the shuttle service to take you to the nearest subway stops. The front desk was very helpful and friendly. Wished the TV worked better, but we were too busy to watch much of it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Friendly Service"
Perfect location with serene view of the river. Staff were very friendly and room very clean and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Close to convenient stores for necessities ..close to hospitals as we stayed night prior to surgery ..clean ..comfy beds..good location..would use hotel againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quality stay, good price though a bit of a walk"
Stayed here for St Patrick's Day, excellent service, clean, quality room for a very reasonable price. Location is in a good neighborhood but is a bit of a walk from the closest T or bus stop. Hotel provides a shuttle to closest station for a fee but upon checking out the front desk comp'd our last trip to the station. A+ customer service! Very good […] stay.

"Location did not work for us"
Stayed at the hotel because it said it was walking distance to Fenway. Was not the case what so ever. Had to take a taxi instead. Overall the hotel was nice, but too far for us to stay again if we are going to the game in Boston.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cambridge Marriott Courtyard"
Hotel was good. Beware of the crazy parking rates - $32 for over night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Convenient place to stay. Close walk into Central Square. The pool was in need of an upgrade. It was noisy at night with construction.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok,but a little overpriced."
Ok location,right across from the river. Gas station,train station,boat and mall within 10 miles radius. Hotel is a little outdated and it shows its age in some of the rooms. My bathroom ceiling was peeling off pretty bad,the paint was almost flaking off. Mattress was old and worn,bad back support. Parking lot was a fortune so BE AWARE of the extra […] parking charges. Convenient transportation with "Free" shuttle and they always have 1-3 taxi cabs waiting right by the main entrance. Staff was pretty helpful and friendly. Decent size rooms, refrigerator did not work,Noisy AC with the old school temperature dial. Main lobby has a touch screen with "things to do" you can easily browse through it if you are not familiar with the area. OK overall. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was there for one night and everything went smoothly. Check in was almost instantaneous.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Trader Joes right behind"
Nice clean room, our toddler loved the high pile carpet and mirror. King sized bed comfy. Friendly service, minimal fuss.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel/ close to Trader Joes, Whole Foods"
Great location- along The Charles- nice walking pathsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel; Good Location"
Very easy to get around from this hotel. Somewhat central location, in between Harvard and MIT. Easy to get on metro from hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right by the regatta."
Great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great business center, location, and complimentary beveragesGenuine Expedia guest review
"Conveniently located, in need of upgrade"
The hotel was very conveniently located. I was surprised, however, to learn of a (very high!) parking fee for the "privilege" of parking on the hotel property. That fee should be advertised much more prominently when a reservation is made. This hotel is in pretty serious need of an upgrade. There was some peeling paint and mildew on bathroom ceiling, […] and general shabbiness around the edges. The room was apparently clean enough, and linens were nice. Staff was friendly and helpful.

"New hotel. Great location"
Great hotel. Very nice and helpful staff. Great location clean, spacious roomsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location in Cambridge"
Enjoyed the stay here. The staff was very courteous. They have a shuttle that costs $5/room/day to go to Harvard, BU and likely MIT. We rented a car and found out that the overnight parking at the hotel costs $32. The staff suggested we take the shuttle/public transportation to get around to avoid parking fee at the hotel and parking in general in Boston, […] tolls etc. That was the best advice. The subway station closest to the hotel is, what feels like, a mile away. If that is a problem use the hotel shuttle to Harvard Square and get on the subway. The room was comfortable, the view of the river was a plus. Trader Joe's, Whole Foods are close by if you need a quick snack, fruit or some such. Downside - no restaurants nearby. You have to go either to Central Square or Harvard Square. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was nice. The 32$ a night parking was a real downer .The Japanese steak house was excellent !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a great hotel and very fun for kids. However, I do think they should tell you before you get there that there is a $32 fee for parking your car there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"hotel was very good"
Could use updating. Towels were very thin.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Verry nice hotel 15 mins from downtown Boston."
The guy working the counter was a heavier man who was extremely nice, and asked my wife and I about our trip and where we were from. He gave us menus to restaurants close by and told us which would deliver to the hotel and called the room to let us know they were bringing our food up to our room. The room was excellent in space, cleanliness, and view […] of Boston from wall to wall floor to ceiling was great to. Would defanately recommend to anyone going to Boston who don't want to drop $300-$400 a night. I'm already planing a trip back and will defanately book here again. Great experience!

"July 4th 2014"
Was very disappointed that the hotel charges 32 dollars to park in their hotel garage. Also no room thermostat to control temp, lousy for that ,was not cool enough in 90" weather 100% humidityGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little shopworn, but a good deal"
I stay in Courtyards a lot for my business travel and this one is long overdue for an upgrade. Still, they are earnest and well-intentioned and the location, just a mile or so from Harvard Yard, was ideal for our purposes. The $149 all-in rate from Hotels.com didn't hurt either.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for Red Sox and Harvard"
Extremely friendly staff. Right on the Charles River. Walking distance to Harvard and even to Fenway (1.5 miles).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The shuttle service can be offered free. The closest subway is not so close. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to walk the stretch of River Street to Central Square station.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place to be. Definitely recommend. Nice staff and quiet environment.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Be aware of hidden cost!"
I am very disappointed. Room is very small which half the space was used on hall way. The air condition was pre-programmed that I won't even able to turn it stronger; therefore, the room can only stay cool, not cold during the summer. When I took my daughter to the swimming pool, it was out of towel and there was no one around who I can ask for assistance. […] Also, This is the first hotel that I experienced charge on parking for guest. They charged $32.00 parking per day for their guest which is higher than other long-term parking.

Response by Courtyard by Marriott Boston-Cambridge Thank you for your feedback. We apologize that your stay with us was less than optimal. We try our very best to accommodate all our guests, and understand that each need is different. We hope you give us a chance to make that up to you. Our A/C and heat units will be renovated in November to be controlled by a thermostat, and understand why controlling the temperature can be confusing currently. Our units control are located right on the unit itself to adjust the heat and cooling. We have also share with the proper departments the lack of pool towels. While we try our best to stock public area items regularly, we do have phones on all the floors for any special or specific needs. Parking in Cambridge is at a premium due to the limited amount of room on the streets given to residents, and while all hotels in the area charge for parking we make a large consideration in cost to our guests and assure we factor that into the parking rates.
"Near Fenway Park"
Hotel was close to Fenway, Harvard and MIT. Im not sure why they see the need to charge 32 bucks for parking. AC unit had difficulty cooling the room. Staff was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff is always ready to assist;very amenable. I am concerned about the charge for parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My only thought would be that I would have liked to know ahead of time that I was going to have to pay for parkingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great view and Whole Foods nearby"
Great hotel staff. Had a couple of toiletry needs they addressed courteously and promptly. Whole Foods next door for easy take-out meals.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
