My husband stayed here on business a few years ago and liked it, so we stayed with our 2 kids (5 & 8) for a weekend. There was a problem with the reservation (mix up about arrival dates), but the front desk handled it smoothly. The hotel is elegant and understated. Our room was clean and well-appointed. The kids LOVED the TV in the bathroom mirror. We ate at Henrietta's (in the hotel) which was extremely child-friendly -- healthy, farm fresh food, albeit pricey. Also, lots of restaurants nearby. The hotel is located close to Harvard and the subway, so it was easy to get everywhere we wanted to go.
