Very nice historic hotel in the heart of Cambridge, MA. The location couldn't be better -- close to everything but on a back street with little traffic.My room (double) was very quiet and well appointed. I especially appreciated the deep soaking tub and TV inset into the bathroom mirror. I also loved the comfortable lobby with the free lending library!
The only "drawback" is lack of in-room coffee maker. Although the hotel provide complimentary coffee on request, I prefer to make my own cup of tea at bedtime. Easily remedied by purchasing a hotpot at the local CVS, though.
