CAMBRIDGE, Mass., July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The well-appointed Boston Marriott Cambridge is offering guests who book their stay 14 days in advance 15 percent off the weekend rate on rooms and suites.
This hot option for enjoying the New England summer climate will appeal to families, couples and travelers seeking to take advantage of the area's outdoor attractions and water activities.
Located within 5 miles of Logan International Airport (BOS), Kendall Square is a favorite location for use as a New England summer exploration base camp. Guests are encouraged to enjoy the beautiful New England countryside and waterways, as well as take part in community activities near the Marriott Cambridge hotel. The area is also rich in historical sites and museums.
Tourists coming to the Cambridge area this summer will discover the perfect weather to canoe and kayak on the current-free Charles River, with waterside access directly from the square. Visitors can also stop by the legendary Longfellow house, the preserved residence of American poet Henry Longfellow. It also served as the headquarters of Gen. George Washington during the siege of Boston, so history buffs will appreciate the adventure. While the house is available for guided tours May through October, the grounds are open year round. The site is also perfect for exploring 19th century literature and art.
Visitors headed to the city can enjoy an evening with the Boston Marriott Cambridge's amenities and services after a long day of outdoor New England activities. A state-of-the-art health club features cardiovascular exercise equipment and free weights with 24-hour access. For visitors who just can't get enough of the water, an indoor swimming pool and whirlpool provide a welcome diversion. A sauna soothes aching muscles that have been sailing or kayaking all day long.
Hungry guests can wake up to several sizzling hot breakfast options in the morning and get their espresso fix and lunch at the Starbucks coffeehouse at the hotel. For a wider variety of lunch and dinner cuisines, guests can visit Champion's Sports Bar, one of Cambridge's hottest entertainment and dining destinations. With over 20 wines by the glass and 35 domestic, craft and imported beers to choose from, it's a great option for visitors wanting to wet their whistle.
After an adventurous day, visitors staying at the hotel in Cambridge will find luxurious beds topped with cotton-rich linens and plenty of fluffy pillows for a sound night's sleep. Well-appointed rooms feature high-speed wireless Internet access, 32-inch LCD TVs with premium movie channels, coffee makers and plenty of electrical outlets for charging cellphones, computers, tablets and other personal devices.
