    I'll be walking from Harvard on a Friday evening to stay. Is there a lot of foot traffic? Is it safe?

    Probably OK till 9 or 10, not so good later.
    Are there hair dryers in the rooms?

    I also suggest you call the Cambridge House. Another tip for you. If you want to insure you get a parking place in their lot arrive by 3P.M.
    How long is the walk from the nearest T station? Is there any restaurants on the way from the station?
