old building, but excellent location

this is a very a old-fashioned hotel. the room was really clean, but the heater was super-loud. there was no minibar. the location is excellent - harvard yard is a 10 minute walk away.

Staying in Cambridge MA

We arrived at the hotel after a long day of travel from Europe with flight delays due to weather. We were tired, but made to feel welcomed and happy to be there. The elevators are a little small and slow, but they work. Our room was large and well appointed. The bathroom was well equipped, yet held the character of the building. The dinning - lounge area is nice. After the freshness of food in western Europe I was a little disappointed in my salad. There is a park across the street and Harvard Square is only a short walk. The beds were the best I've enjoyed in a long time. I would stay there again.
