The hotel is very nice. It has a very impressive indoor courtyard with all the corridors around.
The views are spectacular, specially if you get a room looking to the Charles River and Downtown Boston.
The suites are very comfortable. they have a nice living area with a table for four person, a couch and a lounge chair, and a very nice plasma TV.
The kitchen is in the corridor to the bedroom. it has a small refrigerator and a microwave, Every day they replace the stock of tea, coffee and coffee condiments. There is a coffee maker to brew your coffee every day.
The bedroom in my case had two beds and a nice desk to work with my computer while enjoying the great views.
The only problem with this hotel is the shuttle service: it is completely unreliable. the most of the times I waited in the pick up stop and it never came, or i got ONE minute late to the lobby and it has already departed (although we needed to make the reservation, so they knew that somebody was missing). Other times, in the contrary, we waited ten minutes on the bus and it didn't departed. They change the routes constantly, they had old brochures with outdated schedules, etc.
Be ready to spend money in taxis, or to walk a lot, because there are no buses nearby and the subway station is a good 15 minutes walk.
The pro of this: walking to Harvard along the Charles River is exquisite (although it will take you more than 30 minutes)
