I've been visiting at the Charles Hotel for a 1 or 2 night stay every year for nearly 20 years. They never disappoint with stellar room service(wonderful food) and I always know I'm going to have a super nights sleep. The beds are exceptional.

Claen, beautiful, comfortable. I stayed for a week and that is a long time for a business trip. If I have to stay in one room for an entire week, I'd like it to be as nice, spacious and comfortable as this one was.
