Great service!

From the moment we drove up, we were greeted with smiling faces who seemed as if they couldn't wait to assist us. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we were never inconvenienced and had everything we could need. Of course, the neighborhood couldn't be beat. We had a great time walking around the city. I would definately recommend this property and give the staff very high marks!

Visiting local colleges

Hotel was centrally located to visit schools in Boston and Cambridge. Great location, rooms, amenities and staff. Among the best hotels I have stayed at. Will definitely be back.

Great place

It was great staying there. It has a great location in Cambridge and the services are very good. The room is high tech and, at the same time, comfortable and warm. I'd return there, with no doubt.

Perfect for a young professional

The Charles Hotel was amazing. Beautiful, modern hotel, with very helpful and professional staff at hand 24-7. The hotel is in a perfect location right in the heart of Harvard Square, you can walk to the T station or you can hail a cab and the quality of restaurants and services within the hotel are remarkable. I would recommend this hotel to couples or singles for a very pampered weekend away or for a whole vacation in Boston.

Harvard bars, high quality restaurants and ecclectic shops are all within walking distance. Grab a martini at Noir or right outside on the hotel front patio at the Legal Seafoods outdoor bar- it's a great way to relax in the afternoons.

great location

The Charles Hotel was quite comfortable and very friendly. The location in Harvard square was fantastic for my girls weekend and the dining options could not be beat. Everything was available from formal dining to casual. Room service was fantastic and the hotel staff did all they could to meet our needs. The beds were extremely comfortable for a restful night's sleep. Perfect in every way!
