We were dropping off our daughter at Harvard and stayed in this hotel simply because of its proximity to the school. It is a very clean, nicely run hotel, without any pretensions. We had several meals at Henrietta's which is a lovely restaurant with solid, well prepared food.
It would have been overall an amazing experience had it not been for a waitress by name Amelia who left a highly unfavorable impression by being utterly standoffish, not helpful, and simply the best living proof of how even one, most insignificant employee can affect a reputation of the entire institution. Nevertheless, we will be back and we highly recommend this place.
