The main appeal here is the location - only about three minutes walk from Harvard Square and the T station, close to just about everything Harvard. The downside is that it's right on busy Mt Auburn St, and I found there was quite a bit of street noise at almost all hours (even late on a rainy night.) Well insulated windows help. The rooms, and the bathrooms, are compact. The decor is trendy modern. The king-size bed was very comfortable, but there were a few minor annoyances. One of the lamps didn't work (I asked to have it fixed but no luck.) And the bathroom faucet was so stiff it was hard to adjust. Prices are high, but I gather that's just Cambridge. I would stay again, mainly because it's so close to the action at Harvard.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Harvard Square Hotel contemporary in decor is centrally located in the heart of Harvard Square. Just steps away from all that Harvard Square has to offer including the Harvard University Campus, Harvard T-Station, Charles River and the many eclectic stores and restaurants found in the Square. We are also only a few miles to downtown Boston. Our on the go Starbucks Cafe is a big hit with our guests as the head out to start their day !! We would like to thank our recent guests for their patience as we installed a brand new elevator. ... more less
