Very Good8.0
The need for heat
The check-in was very casual and the check-in clerk seemed to have limited interest in good service. Also, the first room I was allocated had no heat and it took 45 minutes to try to resolve this and then get a new room. Everything else was lovely - great room (eventually), great breakfast , great area

Clean Room & Good Breakfast, but VERY Steep Steps.
Everything was very clean, and the breakfast was good. Good location near the Harvard campus and not far from public transit. Historic house. But I was sent to a 3rd floor room that had very steep, spiral stairs and a teeny tiny bathroom. I'm 63. I should have been warned that my room was meant for a small, young billy goat.

Great hotel, great location. My complaints are likely specific to our visit and situation (like coming back at 11pm to a room with broken AC after an 80-degree day). I would still recommend it to anyone in the area and would likely stay again.

Great Experience!
Great stay. I stayed in a room with a fireplace (heaven) and the jetted tub. The room was quaint, clean and cozy. I felt right at home, and slept fantastic -which is NOT my usual "hotel" experience. Check-in was seamless and the front desk staff was extremely helpful. Breakfast was delicious (amazing coffee) and they were very accommodating of my food allergies. They also helped me find restaurants close by that I could eat at. So helpful, as eating is a huge challenge/stress for me while traveling. All around great stay! Will return.
