Location can't be beat

The Charles is a great hotel -- Steps from Harvard Square. The rooms are well appointed, there are two upscale restaurants, a bar where Jazz is played and a full service Gymn with swimming pool. I try to stay there whenever work or social events bring me to Cambridge.

You pay for location, not for the facilities

Close to Harvard and Legal Sea foods. Weird room placement near conference rooms.

Excellent hotel located within 1 block of Harvard

The Charles Hotel offered friendly reception and concierge services. The rooms were nicely renovated, which included a tv embedded in the bathroom mirror. Offered easy access to Harvard University, which was great during the cold and rainy day.
