good location, over priced.

Beautiful property. Great location--by Harvard University, parks, restaurants, and easy to get to bike path by Charles River.

Very nice hotel in a great area. Staff was extremely friendly. Some of the supporting activities weren't available (as a byproduct of the COVID situation) which was very understandable. But all the core features were knocked out of the park.

okay place to stay

A delightful stay. Beautiful rooms that are classy but not stuffy.

Great location, excellent staff, bed needed to be replaced

Location! Excellent restaurants. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms very slick.

Property was close to everything in Harvard Square in Cambridge which was great. Parking was $45 a day which cost me $135 a lot. It should be free if your a guest

Great hotel, spacious rooms, prompt service, excellent location. Tasteful and understated.
