Love The Charles Hotel! Walking distance to great restaurants, beautiful hotel, 5 star staff! Wish we could have stayed longer but it was an overnight business trip. I will definitely visit The Charles again for leisure in the near future.

This is a great hotel near Harvard. The service is excellent. The rooms are very nicely done and the TV is very large. It has many great amenities (gym, pool, restaurants) and very convenient. A great hotel!
