Average hotel in great location. Was there at start of term, so heaving with students and their doting mummies and daddies, and had to wait wait wait to checkin, which is always a pain. Others seemed to get their rooms before me. Rooms fine, lifts creaky, staff generally nice enough. Nothing special. Pricey. Breakfast not included, but a short walk... More

Stayed for one night had a very comfortable stay. Breakfast was very good and sumptuous. The hotel is very close to Harvard Square and Harvard Yard. Harvard Square is a very lively place with a number of eating places. One can take the subway from Harvard Square to the heart of Boston and visit all the tourist attractions. The Museum... More

It looks like an old apartment building (it was, built in 1927). And the neon sign on the roof that says "Sheraton Commander" looks a bit cheesy (the building was known as the Commander before it became a hotel), but it's a nice, comfortable, convenient place to stay. The cost? Eh, a little on the expensive side. But it is... More

OK - plus points.... Comfortable bed - I slept well. Reasonable breakfast - I ate well. Location, good. Lady on check-in desk was humorous and friendly. Ummm, what next...? I Can't really say much about Traffic noise in the room, as that's the location (on a road) - and I'm sure it wasn't the hotel that set off a car... More

I stayed there while on business at Harvard and my review of this hotel is in line with other reviewers. The location is fantastic, I was very happy to be able to walk to Harvard and to have many eating options in close vicinity. My main criticism has to do with the customer service. I felt like I was interrupting... More

As a lifetime gold spg member I go out of my way to stay at spg properties. I will not go out of my way to stay at this one again. Starwood needs to close it down and do a top to bottom renovation. The rooms are dark and worn. The bathrooms are old which is okay when they are... More

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
