    Hotel is clean and well situated if you want to visit the Harvard Square area. Henrietta's table, their traditional restaurant, has good American cooking and there are plenty of restaurants around. The staff is professional and friendly.

    Wonderful room...like the walk-in shower; comfortable bed; more than adequate resources for charging phones, computers. Overall, stylish without the gimmicks. Excellent catering and a good menu in the restaurant.

    Expensive but very nice overall. Location for Harvard and Cambridge cant be beat .... worth the expense if most of your activities are in the Harvard Cambridge area. Within 5 minute walk to most HArvard venues. Many entertainment and dining options within walking distance.
