This hotel is perfect for travelers wanting to visit Harvard University. The hotel is only a few short blocks away from the campus. It has valet parking, free wifi and a courteous staff. The room was quiet & comfortable. There is an excercise gym
on the first floor with three treadmills, free weights and several stationary bikes- small but decent. This hotel exceeded my daughter's and my expectations!
The room was very clean and comfortable, the service was very considerable. The breakfast was so good and condierate. The location is also very good, near Harverd University and the subway. Very nice and valuable.
The Sheraton Commander staff was very gracious and helpful, giving us clear, easy directions to follow for each excursion. We were amazed that the hotel was as accessible and convenient to both the T and the highway. Usually we avoid the city, but
found this location to be perfect.
Naturally, the room was lovely, comfortable and quiet. This was one of the few hotels in which I have ever slept well. We definitely will return!

The SOWA Flea Market on Harrison Ave. each Sunday morning was fun and simple to get to on the Red Line of the T. It was a fun way to spend a couple hours browsing crafts, antiques, and farmers' produce.
This hotel was very clean... comfortable...nice...and superb friendly staff! It made my trip wonderful. I'm going to consider to go back there in my next visit to Cambridge. Excellent location! just a few minutes walk to everything we wanted to
do,even though little bit noisy on the street side at the midnight.
Our room was extremely comfortable and attractive in a sophisticated way. Its location was convenient but also a little out of the craziness in the Square, across from the peaceful Common and on the border of a gorgeous residencial neighborhood
which provided enjoyable walks and a few special and unique restaurants. Only wish that the hotel's restaurant had a "menu" selection for breakfast rather than a generous and delicious buffet that created the desire to overeat!

Short walk from hotel
Trattoria Pulcinella is a fantastic little italian restaurant located .6 miles from the Sheraton. It was delicious, well-priced and the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming.
We were visiting the school in Cambridge, and found this hotel to be in the prime location, minutes of walk to Harvard Square. On top of the excellent location, the beds and linen are top-quality, possibly the most comfortable I've ever
experienced in a hotel room. There was also a flat screen LCD TV for leisure. In addition, we were pleasantly surprised by the large size of the room. All in all, if the hotel had free internet, it would've warranted a 5 star rating.
We felt welcomed from the moment we parked our car to attend our son's plush wedding reception until we drove home 2 days later! Each and Every staff member was couteous,polite and extreemly professional in their actions and demeneour.We were
treated as family,not as guests-it was a truly lovely experience overall.Thankyou so very much!
It was just one night so such a short visit doesn't require much. The room was fine, bed was super comfy, the staff was very nice and got some toothpaste for us b/c we had forgotten it! I was a little disappointed that they didn't have soy milk or
any milk alternative, though I can't say it was really expected. I'm vegan and used to it, though I was have been extra excited if I could have had cereal with my fruit for breakfast.
