Great Location
The location of the hotel was great for visiting my daughter at Harvard. Her dorm is in Harvard Yard. There was no heat in the hotel and it was a very cold spring with temps in the low 40's and rain/wind. The outlet in the bathroom went out and I had to ask twice to have it fixed. At over $400/night, I wouldn't stay here again.

Near Harvard Square
Staff was very friendly and helpful, great location. I wish they had robes in the room and a gym but aside from that its a nice property for the value

Clean, excellent location. Great hotel for biz
The hotel is very clean and the rooms are very modern. The location is perfect and really accessible. There are not a lot of bells and whistles but this is a perfect stay for business. The hallways can be a little noisy and you can hear a lot of noise in the rooms, but a part from that, it was perfect and I would definitely stay again.

Clean, comfortable and well-priced for Cambridge
Clean, comfortable, minimalist hotel. A lot better priced than most of the other hotels in the Cambridge area. One major missing item for me was a lack of a gym. There may be some private ones nearby that offer day passes - I did not look - although nothing is as convenient as having a gym inside the hotel itself. Perfect for a short stay.

GREAT location, but...
I chose this hotel based on location- right off Harvard Square. The location can’t be beat if you are there visiting Harvard - you can walk everywhere. The staff is helpful and friendly, but the hotel itself is not that great. The rooms are small, bathroom is small, ceilings are low, and they don’t have Hi Def TV’s or breakfast. They do have decent WiFi, it is not noisy, and it was clean. For the price, I expected more. That being said, if you care only about location, it is great and still cheaper than the (nicer) Hotel next door.
