A co-worker recommended the Charles and I am so glad that they did. I was traveling to the Boston area on business and needed a property that was conveniently located to the highway and also would offer easy access to restaurants. The Charles is walking distance from Harvard Square and the highway is less than a mile away. It was nice to be able to walk to dinner and walk back to the hotel. The staff is pleasant and the rooms are comfortable. I would definitely choose the Charles again!

Excellent hotel. Excellent staff. Rooms are luxurious. I received an availability upgrade due to being a member of the Harvard Parents Club and I prefer member. Who could ask for more? The location is wonderfully central to both the University and the Athletic Pool and Fields.

The Charles Hotel always known for understated comfort, good food, and a great music venue did not disappoint. Though the Regatta Bar is not yet opened again for concerts the rest of our evening and night out to the theater was wonderfully framed by a bite to eat at Noir and after show cocktails at one of the many places close by.

I love staying at the Charles. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the staff is so welcoming and there are nice views out of every window. The location is perfect too. it just feels like a home away from home.

The prices at the Charles have stayed the same yet no room service, no mini bar, no laundry, no turn down service are in place. While this is obviously COVID-related, many hotels have now found ways to re-introduce some of those services. The Charles is counting on its location to keep its prices at pre COVID level yet the service levels are of a 1* hotel. It is working from the hotel management's standpoint (much higher margins), much less for customers who despite it all keep filling the rooms for lack of local competition
