Review: Courtyard Marriott Cambridge

The Courtyard Marriott Cambridge is situated only a few minutes from Harvard University, right along the Charles River.  The location offers a running/biking across the street.


I booked my stay on the day of arrival because 1) I am sometimes a procrastinator and 2) the hotel rates for Boston were insane, so I checked Airbnb for other options.  I ultimately settled on this property, which I was familiar because of past stays.



I arrived at the hotel before noon so I had to wait to check-in for a few more hours (insert Gyu Kaku here).  The hotel has covered/uncovered parking for $39/night. The fee was waived by the front desk staff.


Check-in took a grand total of five minutes.  The front desk staff did not provide any info on the property amenities (which did not matter because I would not be wasting time at the hotel).



The room is located on the 12th floor.  It is a weird hallway to get there…first a right then a left to get into the room.



There is a small market to the left of the check-in desk.


There is a Japanese restaurant located directly across from the check-in desk.


There is a small food menu in the room, which I did not try.  I would rather eat anywhere else in Boston than a hotel.

Final Word

I love the location of this hotel. Harvard Square is a few minutes away, while Boston is a short Uber ride away. I will definitely stay at the property again.
