Everything was wonderful from check in to check out. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful, and they had a crib ready for our toddler (which was great). Overall a wonderful stay and we highly recommend it!

This is basically a hotel that must live off of its privileged location. And the gym is very good. Not much else is. Staff is basically tone deaf to detailed requests. Room service menu is poor quality for its price level.

Very positive experience. We liked the location near Harvard Square. The farm to market restaurant (Henrietta's) inside the hotel was nice and relaxing and a good place for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
