This hotel is aptly named for the "Commander" aka George Washington. The building is historic and I believe the footprint of each room is different. Don't let the age of the building scare you, it is well maintained. The lobby is well appointed (quite impressive when you enter) and inviting. There is a sort of business center with computers etc.... More

A good hotel close to Harvard Square. Close to the school and nearby attractions and the T station. Older hotel but remodeled. Staff was helpful with suggestion on where to go see the fireworks by the river. Recommend for visitors to Cambridge.

I had to travel to Cambridge for an overnight trip, and stayed on the club level at the Sheraton Commander. Everything was very much as it should be for the Sheraton. Very nicely maintained building, which takes some effort for an older building. The hotel is conveniently located across from Cambridge Common Park, next to Harvard Yard. The service was... More

Perfectly located a block away from Harvard Square crowds, with easy valet parking. Very friendly check-in and Club Room people, which had nice variety for afternoon hors d'oeuvres and breakfast (worth the upgrade). Well maintained rooms and lobby. Had 2 rooms for family stay--one huge King and another King that was typically sized--ask for the larger ones. Would not look... More

There are so many positives about the Sheraton Commander. I arrived after many hours of flying from overseas, and the reception staff had me checked in very quickly. The room was spacious and quiet--I don't think I ever heard any noise from above or next door. This is one of the things that I value most in any hotel. The... More

We stayed at the Sheraton Commander in Cambridge, MA and had a terrific time. It is conveniently located to Harvard Square, and is lovely inside. It has a nice restaurant, the staff are friendly and helpful and our experience was a great one. We would definitely stay here again.

The Sheraton Commander hotel is situated in a nice part of the Harvard area. We didn't venture much around the hotel but from face value everything was great except for our bathroom inside the room. The door didn't fit the wall so there was no way to actually close the door or lock it. Also, the elevator is very loud... More

Some months ago I booked to stay at the Sheraton Commander for ten nights (as I was attending a course at Harvard Law School.) Imagine my annoyance when, having arrived at about ten o'clock in the evening, after a journey of about 24 hours from Australia, I was told at 'check in' that the hotel was overbooked. I was told...
