          We rented a so-called suite but was not up to their description, overpriced, and very average to below average experience. Great location and my prior stays have been good just this last stay in June 2017.

          Outstanding service and everyone was very helpful throughout my stay. The hotel is in walking distance of restaurants, shops and the University. Rooms are large and the beds are comfortable. I would highly recommend the Charles Hotel.
