        The staff looks like they are happy at their job. If it is a good place to work, I think it is a good place to stay.

        The location so close to Harvard Square can not be beaten. Just walk out the door and you are there in the thick of it!

      • Single
        10.0

        The location is the best in Cambridge, Mass.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        convenient location; generally good staff attitudes.

        Compared to our university town your prices are high for what one gets.

        The staff was very attentive and the Inn was beautiful. Only stayed one night but everything was just great! If we are ever in the Boston area again I would certainly stay there.

      • Single

        It was a convenient location

        The attitude of the concierge would not make me want to return to this hotel. At the front desk, I inquired about a business center where I would be able to print off a document. She told me to do that at the concierge desk. When the concierge arrived, he didn't say good morning or anything. In an aggressive tone, he said that this computer was not meant for public consumption. I indicated that I understood and would not have used the computer without asking permission. I also let him know that the hotel staff member at the front desk informed that I could use it. Plus, the food was overpriced and horrible. I mean, how can you mess up fruit?

      • Single

        The comfortable bed

        No tea/coffee making facilities in the room. The meals were very expensive, and I observed that very few dined in the hotel - far better deals nearby!! A laundry service that was advertised but apparently was not available.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        Fantastic location. Very comfortable room. GOod value for money

        I find the decor in the courtyard area a little dated.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Warmth and hospitality. Rooms are clean, attractive and comfortable. Staff is exceptional and helpful--from bellhops to people who clean the room to desk staff to manager.

        Workout facility is only so-so

      • Family with children

        Location within Harvard University

        Data not uptodate: (!) upon check in it took long time to find my reservation (2) my other reservation which is direct to the hotel for connecting stay was not treated well

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Parking right there at hotel. Staff very good and friendly.

        A bit pricey -- esp with no breakfast included.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Convenience to Harvard Square, efficiency of service, location, amenities; beauty of design, atrium, quietness of accommodations. It is generally a well-run place, and the staff, though sometimes inexperienced (as in most American hotels), is well-meaning. Room was spic and span, and tastefully low-key in decor. Main atrium is extremely civilized and charming, probably one of the best hotels of its kind in America.

        Clientele at any hotel can include inconsiderate people and worse. I have stayed at this hotel often enough to know they are the exception, but neither are they altogether absent. Although it is generally a well- run place, I don't like not being able to reach the front desk by a direct line on the phone--as opposed to 'phoning the hotel, even when one is right inside it, about a problem.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        The room was clean, quiet, dark, and cool (the weather was hot) -- perfect for sleeping. The staff was friendly, and the location was excellent.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        Friendly and helpful front desk staff/concierge. Explained all nearby restaurants and made reservation for us for dinner.

        Bed was too soft - back ache in the am. Otherwise everything else was great!

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        Everyone we encountered from the valet attendant to the cleaning person to the general manager to the special events manager to the front desk rep were lovely!!! I am a nursing mom and needed a place to pump and my colleague needed a quiet place to pray. Everyone was more than accomaditng. And when we needed directions everyone wanted to help!
