    5/5 Excellent

    Convenient location near Harvard

    We had a pleasant stay with no issues. Large room. Parking next door with friendly attendants.

    Pros: Room size was good - with a dressing area with wash basin separate from bathroom.

    Location: Location just a short walk from Harvard Yard and the Harvard Square T station. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance.

    4/5 Good

    Hotel still undergoing refurbishment. Some construction noise and cosmetic blemishes apparent. Staff are very friendly and accomodating. Our room had been updated and was very tastefully done.

    Pros: Friendly staff, good location.

    4/5 Good

    Historic hotel with contemporary flavor

    This hotel open in 1927, but has been completely renovated inside, though keeping the elegance of the golden era Location is great if you want to be in Harvard Square but not in the middle of the crowd (five blocks away from the T Station). It is right in front of the Cambridge Commons, ask for a room looking to this beautiful park. I go to Harvard every two month and this is the first time I've used this hotel, and I am glad I did it. The rooms are completely updated, but they kept some old time flavor a nice modern canopy over the bed Do not miss the chance to have dinner at Nobar, the restaurant downstairs. Food is great and the ambiance too. I am a duck lover and I tried the duck entree with maroons puree, it was simply perfect. For dessert I tried a warm expresso chocolate cake which was excellent too. The fitness center is not big but comfortable, I used the bicycle every morning and always found one available.

    Location: If it is your first time in Harvard do not miss the walking tour around the campus lead by some of the students. They are fun and entertaining.

    4/5 Good

    Just a weekend stay but felt like I was a repeat customer. Great staff, friendly and helpful.

    4/5 Good

    Good Location in Cambridge

    The staff was friendly, and we enjoyed the convenience.

    Pros: It is a comfortable place.

    Cons: The hotel is old. Some fixtures were rusty, and the ceiling vent for the bathroom fan was cruddy. For over $400/night the place should sparkle.

    Location: Good restaurants and all of Harvard are nearby.
