Team Building and Meeting Enhancements – 2019

“Over the past 16 years, I’ve spent more room-nights at the MIT Endicott, than any other hotel in the world.  We have created, managed and lead, more than a dozen 5-day events there, and used every inch of the facility.  Without question, from food, to friendliness, to service, to grounds…and everything in between, the Endicott house is hands-down, my favorite place to have events.”

Rick Sapio

Founding Chairman, Gathering of Titans, Inc.

MIT Endicott House - Your home for group retreats

"You will not find a more impressive place to hold an event than MIT's Endicott House. There is something uniquely and refreshingly civilized about the environment ­ the buildings and gardens are a relaxing and pleasant departure from the bustle of campus. I take particular pleasure in having students experience an event at the House. They are invariably astonished that MIT boasts such a refined and architecturally stunning facility, and that, as part of our community, they have the privilege of enjoying it."

Prof. John G. Kassakian

Laboratory for Electromagnetic and Electronic Systems

Owned and operated by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
