Stayed at the Charles this past week (June 19th) for an ed. conference at Harvard Law School and really couldn't have asked for a better location. Location was great in terms of being close to our conference, but also really enjoyed hanging around Harvard Square and being close to the T stop. The Charles itself was a very nice stay - staff was friendly and very helpful, rooms were nicely done and comfortable - I really enjoyed the TV within the bathroom mirror! The only reason I didn't grade at 5 stars was the lack of a walk in shower (regular tub shower was used), and the slow (and therefore very obnoxious) elevators. Other than that, I had a fabulous stay and would definitely recommend!
