If you don't mind the anonymity and predictability of a chain hotel—and don't mind staying outside of Boston proper—this is a decent choice. Five colleges sit less than 5 miles from the Marriott, making it popular with visiting families. The just-renovated guest rooms are pleasant and clean, and the property has an indoor pool, hot tub, and small gym. The T is right outside the door, as are ample neighborhood restaurants. (An on-site eatery is open for breakfast and dinner.)

We are in Boston for a quick visit. Staying at Marriott Courtyard in Brookline for its good price and location across from the T, walking distance to Longwood Medical, great restaurants and shops within walking close walking distance.

My wife and I are frequent guests at the Courtyard Boston Brookline, primarily because of its location (in a great village --- and near our grandkids!), but also because of the friendly and helpful staff. The small lobby is very personable and pleasant, the pool and fitness center underused. Always enjoyable.
