We had stayed at the Commander previously and found it to be a good combination of location and value. Our recent trip was the same. The room was clean and well kept. The front desk staff was courteous and attentive. Despite having a street facing room, there was very little traffic noise. We had breakfast in the hotel to save... More

The location of this hotel is perfect, right next to Harvard where I had a course this summer. The hotel rooms were average size for city hotels but big enough for me. The staff were the highlight. Isaia at the front desk was a gentleman and always willing to help. The night time manager steph went above and beyond helping... More

I stayed at the Sheraton Commander Hotel for one night in August during a business trip. The front desk personnel were very friendly and checked me into a room 2 hours before check-in time, which was appreciated after a morning of air travel. My room on the 3rd floor was spacious, and had great amenities for business travelers including free... More

Our recent stay at the Sheraton Commander Hotel reminded us how much we enjoy this beautiful hotel. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and the hotel staff is excellent! The Commander is located within walking distance to great public transportation, as well as picturesque neighborhoods in Cambridge.

Nice hotel central to most everything in Cambridge/Harvard Square. Nice rooms, good service and housekeeping. Fairly priced for the Harvard area. This hotel lies within easy walking distance to Harvard metro, Harvard square, and all the restaurants.

Have stayed at Commander a couple of times per year for several years. It is a beautiful hotel with a little bit of history around it, centrally located. Rooms are nice and clean and have received some updates. Last time I was in a very nice and spacious suite. Bathrooms are on the small side. Good and well equipped gym.... More

Hotel is nice, rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Food at the restaurant is good, but room service food is mediocre. The location of this hotel is perfect if you are visiting colleges in the area. Staff and check-in was fast and friendly.

dropped off our luggage at 9 am & continued on our tour of Boston. Returned to our room at 5 pm, reunited with our luggage! Was upgraded to Star service, took advantage of the food offered, with tea and coffee. Later ordered some food from a nearby pizza place. The room was great, clean and comfy!

This was a top notch Sheraton- it's is upscale and quiet, while being centrally located, just steps from Harvard University and Harvard square. The staff is very helpful and welcoming, from the room service delivery, to check-in, to the valet parking. The rooms were clean and updated. The restaurant/bar in the hotel (called Nubar) was fabulous. Spacious and calm, a... More
