We were attending a symposium at Harvard, and we were fortunate to secure a room at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Charles Hotel is conveniently located within a ten minute walking distance to the Harvard campus. Downtown Cambridge is a lively, friendly town with cafes, stores, and high quality street performers. Walking to and from the campus is delightful. The hotel itself is meticulously clean and comfortable. The rooms are spacious and loaded with amenities, such as free wi-fi, an amazing television in the bathroom mirror, and comfortable bed. Lots of outlets are available for the tech savvy individual. We parked our car at the hotel on Wednesday for $35 per night, and never saw it again until Sunday when we left. There are so many wonderful restaurants and activities within a very short distance that the car was unnecessary. The hotel has a number of dining options for meals as well as late night snacks, with four restaurants and outdoor dining. The hotel and adjoining restaurant staff were very welcoming and friendly. Room service is fast and reasonable. We are thinking of going back to Cambridge just to stay at the hotel!
