This hotel checks all the boxes for normal expectations from a city hotel, but for the premium price you pay, it would be nice if there were some sense of something extraordinary. Instead, it’s just a nice “Hampton Inn” feel at a resort price.

We always enjoy our time at the Charles Hotel. We always stay there when we travel to the area for squash matches for our children. It has a nice vibe and the rooms are very nice. Henrietta Table is a great venue for breakfast.

Great location, and rooms and staff! Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Went to Harvard hockey game- also within easy walking distance. Henrietta's table for brunch was great as well.
