Great location between the Harvard and MIT campuses, with a fantastic view of the Charles river. Quiet place, with easy access to Trader Joe's next door for all essential supplies. A taxi was always available at the door to commute to the city centre about 10-15 minutes away. Friendly and efficient staff - helped out with payment and checkout very quickly, even arranged for a taxi to depart at 4.30 am. The room was airy and clean, with regular cleaning service, tea/coffee maker, ironing equipment, hair dryer and refrigerator.
Pricing was slightly on the higher side, but very reasonable compared to other hotels in the city centre.
If I wanted to stay at a Haunted House on Halloween, this was the place! For starters; at 73 degrees outside this hotel did not offer air conditioning, instead suggesting I open the window (which opened a whole two inches) and was “overlooking” the river. We were also told to set the thermostat at 65 degrees to turn the fan on. After having to adjust the thermostat and leaving and returning from dinner the room had not decreased in temperature, but in fact had gone up! The ice machine was located at the end of our hallway: or not?! At 9pm I was searching the halls for ice to keep my beverages cold. I called the front desk and was told that I needed to find floor 5 to get ice! Was I just supposed to know this? You would think front desk would apologize for the inconvenience and fetch the ice for us. Once “settled” in laying on the bed in minimal clothing due to the internal temperature of our room we attempted to relax. Relaxing was far from us; upon using the bathroom in the middle of the night there were two stink bugs in the sink. We could not wait to leave! While leaving in the morning, the hotel was down to one elevator, and no one at the desk to wish us well. I will be contacting the Better Business Bureau to obtain my payment back. This stay was an absolute joke and I will never stay at a Marriott or any associated facilities in the future.
Room was clean and comfortable
I didn't eat breakfast because, despite the fact that the person that checked me in indicated breakfast was free, the breakfast servers indicated it cost $15. So, I ate at Dunkin Donut 1 block away for $3.50.
No complimentary waters.
