            Individual guest reviews

            • Location is very convenient to Harvard square and the university, room and hotel in general very comfortable, the front desk is very professional and very informative. Beds are wonderfully comfortable, and the linens are very clean.

              Staff is hopeless.

              The hotel is very old and small and not good for a family.

            • The staff were helpful and knowledgeable about the area, my First Night was fine, the interior designer really had great taste in room colors. Service was efficient, the bed was the most comfortable in the world and breakfast was really good too.

              This hotel is not near Harvard square.

            • Just minutes walk away from Harvard square and we pressed for a room on the 6th floor and you get a great view of the adjacent park and beyond. The hotel is very well maintained, the front desk staff are always friendly and nice furniture really doesn't make up for substandard plumbing.

              Expensive telephone and internet, poor food. Disappointingly tiny gym.

            • Mit is just 2 stops away, the town is awesome day and night, the location is good in Harvard Square. The decor is lovely and for the price, you can probably do better. Desk staff are courteous and try to be helpful and accommodating, the beds are quite comfortable.

              Not great view at all, beautiful old hotel and the shower never got really hot either.

            • Very convenient to Harvard square and the t stop and numerous bus lines, faneuil Hall is just 30 minutes away. On a positive note, the location is great and the hotel is comfortable. The rates are usually pretty good as well, the lobby is huge and impressive, the staff is very accomadating and friendly. The rooms are gonna be a bit smaller and the a/c is not going to be central air.

              The internet isn't free, the business center isn't free, service is poor.
