What a terrific Harvard Square hotel! The room was modern, comfortable and smartly outfitted. Free wifi. The service, spearheaded by Concierge extraordinaire Frank, was outstanding. Food offerings were excellent on site, although The Sunday Brunch starts at noon ( late for our schedule). One complaint. Headed to Noir at 10:45 pm where we hoped to catch a late snack. No go. No food after 11:00. Not even soup. Were directed to return to our room to order room service by our dismally inferior waitress, Tiva. Seriously? Kelly, the sharp knife in the waitress drawer here, got creative and offered to order from room service for us to be delivered to our table. That's using your head. Tiva fail. Save by Kelly.
With one exception, a superior stay which we will repeat certainly.
