The Sheraton Commander is the only remaining hotel near Harvard Square. But more than that, it's an excellent hotel in any location. The rooms are well-appointed and clean and the staff is without exception courteous and efficient. The restaurant, unusual for a hotel restaurant, is one of the best ones around with prices that are comparatively reasonable. We'll be back!

I stayed at the Commander in July while attending a Professional Development conference at the Harvard Grad. School of Education. I chose this hotel for it's close proximity to the school. I'm so glad I did! The room was very comfortable( great bed!), quiet (even though near the elevator!) and the staff was fabulous. They went out of their way... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Sheraton Commander. Although we didn't really spend any time in the public areas our room felt a little dated but nothing really to complain about. It's location makes it perfect for exploring Harvard and Boston - just 5 minutes walk from the subway, The parking is right next door to the hotel so you... More

I stayed recently here for business. The room was great and the bed was comfortable. I liked that the wifi was complimentary. There was a tiny step to get into the bathroom which I continually stubbed my toe on especially in the dark. What I found most interesting was the elevator. Barely big enough for two people with no luggage.... More

The rooms can be a little crowded. The staff is courteous. There is no pool. Workout room is acceptable. Biggest selling point for this hotel is its location on Harvard campus. If you have to visit Harvard, then this is your hotel

We recently stayed at the hotel for my daughter's wedding. Great location to Harvard Square and public transportation. Walk through big home neighborhood behind the hotel. Terrific F/B staff, every thing works well given the historic footprint of the 1927 hotel. Small elevator to our wing, small queen-bedded room but great air-conditioning, internet, bedding. Business center off main lobby with... More

I've stayed here before (although didn't review). So this is my second stay here in less than a year. This hotel gets a lot of things right, although you pay a lot for this level of service. This time when I stayed I stayed on the "club level" which included free hors devours and breakfast. That was nice. The room... More

The room was much larger than we anticipated, had 2 double beds and a rollaway bed and there was still plenty of room to walk around in. Staff were very nice and helpful with directions. I wish that they had a microwave in the club level

Funky shaped rooms with nice furnishings. Good noise separation. Upgraded to club level gratis (only SPG gold) and really enjoyed the espresso machine in the lounge. I short walk from Harvard Square. This is our first choice on all trips to Cambridge.
