HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 November 2016

Great location, friendly staff, room was great. Breakfast in club lounge was a little weak in my opinion (and lounge was also tiny), but I haven't been to a ton of Sheraton lounges so I'm not really sure what is normal. I did have to fight with the staff at checkin to get them to honor the perk of being...

Old time elegance in this renovated jewel from the 1920s! The rooms are spacious, with comfortable beds, and large windows overlooking Cambridge. Extremely convenient for a parent visiting a Harvard student living at the Quad. Easy walk to Harvard square for restaurants and shops. Nubar restaurant on property is above average with a well stocked bar. Club level rooms offer...

This was my 3rd stay at the Commander, and i will be back. It is not a glitzy, contemporary hotel, but it is clean, comfortable and well-maintained. The rooms are spacious, and the bathrooms are well-designed and updated. Best of all, is the staff, who are absolutely outstanding. Once again, Isaiah welcomed us as we arrived late in the evening,...

I was in town on a business trip and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed my stay here. I was expecting the typical basic single room which is generally very cramped, but instead stayed in an extremely large room (with enough space to do aerobics in the morning) and the most comfortable hotel bed I've slept in, in...

The Sheraton Commander is in a nice neighborhood just a short walk from Harvard Square. The hotel is especially convenient if you're visiting Harvard Law School, but it's only a short walk to other Harvard schools and Harvard Square. The staff at the Commander are very nice, but the furnishings are getting a bit dated. This hotel would be wonderful...

We have been staying at The Charles but did not feel we were getting good value and on our 2 most recent visit there we were rudely awakened despite the Do Not Disturb sign on the door. When Marriott merged with Starwood we decided to give the Sheraton Commander a chance. We're so sorry we didn't experience the Sheraton Commander...

I so enjoy the Sheraton Commander and on my last visit, the way I was welcomed by Isiaih Williams was utterly delightful. He was warm, gracious, extremely helpful and had me laughing after a long day of traveling. Having talent like Isiaih reflects on Sheraton's values and beliefs about their customers. Thank you Sheraton Commander and thank you Isiaih!

The Sheraton Commander is a great place to stay if you are visiting Harvard, Cambridge or the Boston area. It is a well run and classy establishment. The Guleserian family has done a fantastic job over the years. We have been staying at the Commander since August 2009 and most recently in March 2017, when we celebrated our daughter's wedding...

I would highly recommend this hotel for a business meeting (or anything else!). Jessica, the Sales Manager, worked very hard to help me arrange reservations for a group of 40+. Unfortunately our meeting fell through for other reasons. However, I would definitely consider this hotel again. It is a lovely place and Jessica's knowledge and patience through the process was...
