Very well kept hotel with personnel and the manager who go out of their way to make it the best hotel in Riverton. Mission acoomplished.

Lumpy bed, sheets too big, not queen bed

Posted Apr 11, 2016
Pros: The people at the front desk were competent.
Cons: Everything - room size, quality of bed and pillows, soundproofing for T noise.
The mattress was incredibly soft and lumpy, partly because the sheets were a foot too long for the bed. The pillows were foam. The subway runs under the hotel so we heard the noise very late into the night and early in the morning. The room was so small it was clear they had to reduce the size of the bed so one could walk around it - the headboard was a foot and a half wider than the mattress. I could see staying here if the price was $100/night but the price was $250 - comparable to nicer hotels. Disturbingly, there was a man sitting in the "lobby" (which is really an aisle) on his computer all day - which made me concerned about using the wifi.

Clean elegant rooms but very small.

Posted Feb 1, 2016
Pros: Staff was so friendly.
Cons: Can't make rooms any bigger so not much to recommend. This hotel isn't for everyone (especially families!)
If you don't mind staying in a very small boutique type hotel then I think you'll find this hotel very charming. It is clean, new, and the staff is SO friendly. However, I am 5'2" and not a large person - I think I managed to bump my hip, butt, and head on various tables/counters/lights in the room because it was pretty cramped. I didn't mind the fact that there wasn't a restaurant - there's a nice couch/seating area with free danishes and coffee which is a nice touch. I was there to take a class at Harvard so I needed to be close to Harvard Square. It's about a 6-9 minute which in my mind, isn't super close when it's freezing outside. There are other hotels like Harvard Square Hotel that might be better for students. It's also about a 6-9 minute walk from the subway station. One other thing to note - it didn't matter to me that much because noises don't bother me too badly - but you can certainly hear the subway / train station and it's really close to fraternity houses and late night partying. Again, it's Cambridge/college town so in my mind, that is to be expected.
