This Inn is very close and convenient to Harvard Yard and Harvard Square. It was nice that the inn had staff at the front desk 24 hrs a day. There was very few areas in this place that were common sitting areas. There are a...More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. While Irving House is a very big house, and some of our rooms do have shared baths, and some are small, we try very hard to make clear in our marketing just what...More
Clean place on a great location near harvard square.
Good complete breakfast, tea, coffee and cake during the whole day on a common kitchen with microwave, and self service laundry at a good price.
I spent the thanksgiving there and they offered a free delicious...More
I stayed at Irving House for 5 nights recently and found it to be welcoming in many ways. Each morning there was a hearty breakfast with good coffees and several choices of all kinds; you won't go hungry at Irving House. Of course, you may...More

Thank you for your kind and detailed review of your stay with us. While our breakfast is not cooked to order, we do offer a full array of savory and sweet, protein and fruit options. We are pleased to see that you seem to have,...More
This is more like a hotel than a b&b. Several floors with a dozen or so rooms per floor. Our room was a very small space with two twin beds. Very reminiscent of my daughters tiny dorm room. It was clean and simple. Breakfast was...More

We are sorry you did not find us to be a good value. Hotel/bed and breakfast rates vary with location, and in the Harvard Square area Irving House is a good value. The inclusion of breakfast, wifi and parking make it even a better value...More

We do not have suites, so, depending on your preferences, we could accommodate your party in 2 or 3 rooms. With your son being so tall, I would recommend three rooms each with queen bed and private bath. This is the type of room of which we have the most. A family room has a queen and two twin beds. The twin beds are 72" long, so not very comfortable for someone over 72" tall…..
Our sister property, Harding House, has mostly the same bed configuration, but also has adjoining rooms, so depending on the timing of your visit, you might be able to arrange adjoining rooms, one of which would have a queen bed, another having a double (full) bed. The double bed is also just 72" long, but your son could sleep on it diagonally and be quite comfortable.
I hope this is helpful!

Joanne, I believe I have answered this question in another response. Irving House does not have suites, so we would accommodate your party in two or three rooms. Your tall 16 year old would be more comfortable in a full (double) or queen bed, which would require a third room. I hope this is helpful information!
