Stayed here for 4 days during my daughter's college graduation. Fantastic location, with the T, big CVS drugstore, and lots of restaurants close by. As it's directly on the Red Line subway, it's more convenient to Harvard or MIT than 'closer' options which are three or four times the price. Unlike others, John Jeffries' rate doesn't triple during graduation season. The outside gardens are pretty, service was generally good, maids were great, room clean and comfortable (we had a kitchenette which was handy) and nice complimentary fruit and coffee available in the lounge. Elevator access available if you have trouble with the entry stairs which are a steep 1/2 flight. There is a lovely walk along the Charles River just outside the hotel doors. Only suggestion is that the 'light breakfast' was only suitable for sugar addicts-- (maybe that's what they mean by 'American'?) very stale and very sweet donuts being the only option. Some cold cereal or even a bagel or toast would be far better.
