I had a single bed room over looking lovely older buildings and fall foliage. The other guests were an international lot. My room was very comfy with an arm chair, desk, good lighting, control over temperature, Bose music & radio system, and a small HD TV on a wall mount. One morning the drinking glass was dirty. There was a... More

If you are a student, faculty or employee of Harvard you can book a room at this lovely, wainscoted club, or sponsor a reservation for someone else. Situated across the street from Harvard Yard, there really is no better location when you are at Harvard for events or meetings. There are only a handful of rooms on offer so you... More

We were privileged to be invited to dine at the Faculty Club by a friend who is a member. The dining room reminded me of those in fine old classical European hotels where both the food, the wine list and the service are impeccable. No tipping was allowed although I was strongly tempted.

If you have a HArvard affiliation (of pretty much any sort), give these folks a call to see if they can assist you for a lunch or dinner, or for an overnight room. There's no better location in Cambridge -- great food, comfortable rooms (elevator to all floors), very helpful staff.

Not the biggest fan of the Harvard ambience myself, but I always enjoy staying here. Over-stuffed rooms, hands-off help, an air of slighly hysterical respectability, but still very comfortable and you can always observe the natives.

okay, this place is somewhat stuff in atmosphere of course. but it actually has an amazing lunch buffet every week day that is quite delicious and tasty (and affordable at $25/person). just need to show a Harvard ID to get in (unlike Harvard Club which requires a membership). its a nice place to meet a business colleague.

I hosted a state social for professors, deans, graduate students at the Harvard Faculty Club. It was AMAZING. You get silverware that's 100's of years old and the Reading Room is breath-taking. I was concerned I wouldn't get enough attendees to my event (since we were flying in from California and not everyone is familiar with Cambridge, MA). But, the... More

Came here as a treat after graduation for the Sunday Brunch.....food selection was excellent but one negative was that they didn't refill the shrimp after it was finished....great selection of food.....including all of the breakfast favourites...and the roast beef was excellent...try to leave some room for the desert...the flour-less chocolate cake was one of the best I have ever had...
