It was fantastic to stay at a hotel that's run by people and not a corporation

I especially liked the artwork on the walls in my room!

Convenient location close to the Kendall Square T station.

Walked through this area on our hunt for the MIT COOP. Although there was alot of construction going on, the area was clean and clear of street debris. The flowers were well manicured and in full bloom. We actually saw a wild turkey just walking around. I can't wait til they finish with all the construction, because it's really a nice area to walk through.

When visiting MIT this is a great area to shop or get a good cup of coffee. We were sad that the rooftop garden isn’t there since there is construction. I hope they put it back.

While Kendall has MIT and a ton of companies don't expect much activity on weekends or late evenings. Come enjoy the many area restaurants during regular work hours if you plan on visiting the area.

In the past two decades, Kendall Sq has transformed itself into a thriving, high energy innovation hub. One feels that much "with it", just hanging out at the numerous cafes and coffee bars people watching. I also feel an extra spring in my step whenever I am there. There are numerous restaurants serving creative food. If you have only a few days in Boston, plan on spending some time walking around and getting a drink or a meal in Kendall Sq.

I went to this restaurant in July after a trolley sightseeing trip . I had a grilled chicken salad which was delicious, but the best thing was the staff member called Woddy , I was on my own and he made me feel very welcome and had a nice chat with me ,he was very interested in where I came from , I would definitely recommend this restaurant

We came to this lively location twice on our recent visit to Cambridge. There's nearby parking and lots of restaurants, although some are not open in the evening. We ate at two: Smoke House BBQ and Mamaleh and liked them both. Mamaleh is not open in the evenings.

The metro station serving MIT, the location of the MIT Coop store, the center of a new tech hub developed by and around MIT with a lot of energy around it, where old industrial buildings used to be 25 years ago.

I do recommend walking around here and along Mass Ave to pay some attention to all the buildings. Despite the architecture, here you get a sense of the company that are here. I am in the medical field and then I was these cancer research buildings and neroscience buildings and felt very fortunate to be able to walk with these brightest minds in the world.

Be sure also to drop by the MIT Co-op store. I personally did not buy anything but seeing the "puns" they put into their products sometimes make me smile, such as words on a mug or a notebook made from taking tiles from a periodic table. It reminds me that it is never to late to learn!
