We have been staying at the Charles whenever we visit Boston for a number of years. They never disappoint. This year we took part in the Valentine's 101 package as one of the winners of the How We Met contest. When we arrived at the Charles the woman at the registration desk was very welcoming and, along with our key, gave us some wonderful champagne. We enjoyed it immediately when we arrived in our beautiful room as we admired the view of the river. (The artwork and the huge pillows are especially nice.) We then headed out to explore (read “shop”) Harvard Square. When we returned to our room there was another bigger bottle of champagne waiting for us and some wonderful cookies and chocolate desserts. We enjoyed them immensely as well as the breakfast the next morning which included what my husband declared to be the best corn beef hash he ever had. This past weekend was one of the most romantic times we have ever had at the Charles Hotel.
