Harvard Square Hotel, Cambridge
Great location and convenient
I've stayed at the Harvard Square Hotel many times while in Cambridge on business. There are very few options at the heart of Harvard Square and HSH provides the right balance of price, quality and location for me. I find the staff very warm, friendly and willing to help. The hotel is close to the metro, bars, restaurants and the University. Rooms are simple but nice and again, cannot beat the location.

Great location
The location is fantastic! Not a luxury hotel. Thin towels. Small room. Nice perk of coffee, tea, hot chocolate in lobby.
