IPSEC Hotel Recommendations

Julie Fooshee - Monday, March 7th, 2016


There is no designated hotel block for IPSEC 2016. It turns out that individuals are likely to get a better deal on a room this year than the conference was able to find in a block. Last year, many conference participants found accommodations for a reasonable price using AirBNB or searching Kayak.
The conference will be held at MIT Media Lab and we encourage people to stay either walking distance from the Media Lab or at an easily commutable distance by MBTA. The Media Lab is a very short walking distance from the Kendall/MIT stop on the MBTA Red Line.

The MIT Media Lab is located at 75 Amherst Street, Cambridge, MA 02139

In order of proximity, here are some local hotels:

The Kendall Hotel

Boston Marriott Cambridge

Residence Inn Cambridge

Le Meridien Cambridge-MIT

Royal Sonesta Boston

Hotel Marlowe

Hampton Inn Boston/Cambridge *

Fairfield Inn & Suites Cambridge *

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Boston-Cambridge *

*The last three hotels on the above list are a bit of a walk. however, there are bus lines that service the area frequently during peak hours that could help defray some of the travel by foot.
For more options, please check AirBNB and Kayak. If you’re looking to stay further outside of the immediate metro area, you are encouraged to stay somewhere on the Red Line to make the MBTA commute easier.

If you feel that difficulty arranging lodging may prevent you from attending IPSEC, please contact Science Festival Alliance staff to see if we might help.
