We booked a room for a weekend. The location is an 8 minute walk from Harvard Square. I found the front desk to be friendly and helpful. The hotel room was small but spacious enough for the two of us. It had a small foyer with an adequate closet, a desk, and a chair with lamp for reading. There was a reading light in the room for the chair but I would have liked to been able to brighten up the space a little more. Overall, we had a very nice stay and would stay there again.

This is an older hotel that has successfully kept some of its attractive older decor but is also sufficiently modern to meet a visitor's expectations. We had a very large king room, with a couch and chairs, The room could have used an additional lamp or two, as it was a little dim. The king bed, while comfortable was quite high and a challenge for a shorter person to access. The bathroom was fine and, and we were provided plenty of towels. The hotel is in a traffic congested area, and it's a little tricky to load and unload luggage. The adjacent parking lot is very convenient. We only stayed one night but would consider staying there again.

Well I guess we have to live without our rooms being cleaned. But we should not have to live with hostility and bars closing at 10. We had 18 people staying this week, and we arrived at the bar at 9:20 we were aggressively told that last call would be in 10 minutes. When we asked why we were told the bar closed at 10. When we said why last call at 9:30 she said they wanted us out at 10. We ordered drinks and did not get them for 20 minutes. At 10 we were told we had to move to the lobby. In the lobby we were told we had to "quiet down". There was not attempt to make us happy. It is ridiculous to close a bar at 10, and more ridiculous to be aggressive about it.

Dear guest, Thank you for your online review. I'm sorry we did not meet your expectations in regards to restaurant hours. During the pandemic, we have needed to adjust some of our services and hours. Your party was notified in advance regarding our closing time. While I understand your frustration, our restaurant is not permitted to remain open past our posted hours of operation. We look forward to getting the pandemic behind us so we can resume our normal hours. Warmly, Michael Guleserian General Manager

Hotel itself is fine. Despite being packed on a Wednesday, restaurant informed us at 9:20pm that they were preparing to do last call in 10-15 minutes. Preparing for their 10 pm closure. Manager asked us to leave at 10:07, despite just serving us drinks. Indicated we should go to lobby. Front desk clerk then asked us to keep it quiet. Really an unwelcoming vibe. Would not recommend.

Thank you for taking tine to write an online review of your last visit. The coronavirus pandemic has negatively impacted our business and we have needed to limit our services and amend our hours to meet the lower demand. Wednesday's are consistently slow including when you were here. We look forward to business levels returning to normal so we can offer more regular service and hours. We hope you understand how much Covid-19 has affected our industry and our market and you will consider visiting us again the next time you are in the Cambridge area. Warm regards, Michael Guleserian General Manager

The staff here,from front desk check in personnel to maids, to restaurant servers all exhibited similar traits - wonderfully friendly as well as efficient. They made our stay here so pleasant. As Titanium Bonvoy members, we were upgraded in advance to a 1 bedroom suite using SNA certs. .Well done!
