The doorman was was chit chatting with the driver of the SUV in front of us in front of the hotel. We proceed to unload and then he sauntered over to ask whether we were checking in. Other than that, I really like the hotel and the food in the dining room.

The location and amenities, along with a well trained, friendly staff make this an excellent choice for any visit to Cambridge. The hotel was immaculate. Harvard Square has lots to offer and easy access to public transportation is a bonus.

Great location. Reasonable rates. Lovely rooms. Comfortable beds. Great service. Easy parking. Beautiful quilts and nice decor. Great food options within hotel and in surrounding area. Easy walk to the heart of Harvard Square and Red Line access. A great find.

While visiting Cambridge for the weekend for a debate tournament, we stayed here. The room was spacious and luxurious and the TV embedded in the mirror of the bathroom was a ridiciously cool feature! Beds were comfortable, especially pillow. However, housekeeping did a horrible job cleaning the room, to the point where I'm almost certain they didn't come. Don't waste your time and money at the restaurants in the hotel - they were exuberantly overpriced and the food wasn't impressive. All in all, I prioritize the quality of the room and ammenites, so it was very good in that aspect.

I love everything about this hotel. It is impeccably kept. The service is amazing--comprehensive, yet unintrusive. The gym is fully-equipped. The location is terrific if you're there to visit Harvard. If you need to go into Boston, there's a T stop right within easy walking distance. A lot of the restaurants are more geared toward students, but there are still good options if you're not looking for upscale. If you don't mind eating in the hotel, there are several good places there.
