Location, location, location. Conveniently located in the heart of Harvard activities - the Sheraton Commander is a great place to stay if you have any business with MIT or Harvard. Minutes walk from Harvard Square and a plethora of restaurants (as well as a T stop) means you're never far from sustenance or entertainment. As noted in other posts, the... More

Location is perfect walking distance to Porter Square or Harvard Square. Great location for families visiting college students. We moved our daughter into college during our overnight at the Sheraton. Very helpful staff and they greet you as you arrive! Will use Sheraton Commander again! Only negative was paying the extra to park in their lot, but parking in Cambridge... More

This hotel was extremely convenient to Harvard, which was the reason for our trip. It is technically in Harvard Square, although "behind" the hustle and bustle. It is within a block of Radcliffe, undergraduate admissions, and the graduate school of education. The hotel is an older property, but has an updated feel. The staff was all very accommodating and helpful,... More

We came in after a 12 hour drive from Pittsburgh. We arrived on a Sunday evening with our daughter and we were moving her in to law school the next morning. First of all so many times even with google directions it is easy to pass a hotel, especially in a city because they don't have an adequate sign. Their... More

We stayed at the Sheraton Commander for 5 nights in August for a sightseeing and college trip. We loved the location, a 5 minute walk to the subway at Harvard square. We did not even rent a car, just used the subway. The hotel was beautiful, full of old charm but with all the modern amenities. We used the club... More

Stayed here when visiting Cambridge for a wedding. Overall, the hotel is acceptable but very pricey for the facilities it offers. It has no pool, some of the smallest elevators (especially the doors) that I have seen and limited restaurant selection. The rooms are OK. The main attraction of the hotel is its location, within walking distance of the Harvard... More

From the minute we checked in, the staff was so accommodating. They helped us plan our transportation, including train rides to the colleges we went to visit. Not only did they verbally tell us, but they printed out Maps and walking/train directions. They accommodated us with every request. The room was spotless! We had a suite with access to complementary... More

Came on a three day conference at Harvard. When I walked in I knew there was going to be a bit of a suboptimal experience as there were two women at front desk with no customers and neither looked at me as I approached the desk. After about 15 seconds standing there one looked up and said "over here" without... More
