Boston Marriott Cambridge

Boston Marriott Cambridge

The Boston Marriott Cambridge is located in Kendall Square, across from MIT in Boston’s famous and historic college town. The hotel features 1 Grand Ballroom with capacity for approximately 500 guests with a dance floor. The Grand Ballroom can be divided into sections. You can host your sangeet/garba, ceremony + post-ceremony lunch and reception there.

This hotel is very convenient for weddings with a lot of out-of-town guests as it’s just 4 miles east of Boston Logan International Airport. The Kendall Square T station is just outside the hotel, making it even more convenient.

A nice feature of this Marriott is the courtyard in front which makes for a fun baraat and perfect location for milni.

Above: Notice the chairs in the Grand Ballroom photo above, that are setup for an event. Those are the hotel’s standard banquet chairs that come with all events. You can opt to rent other chairs instead.
