I accompanied my wife on a business trip to Boston and her company put us up at The Charles. The staff was friendly and efficient. The hotel was upscale and in a great area, adjacent to the Harvard campus and next to the Charles River. We were within walking distance of several restaurants and convenience stores. The restaurants ran from IHOP to upscale eateries and local favorites like Charlie’s Kitchen. The room and bedding were comfortable with a nice view of the square. Unfortunately it did have a tendency to be a little noisy at night. One of the nicer perks was a television screen mounted behind the bathroom mirror which allowed for viewing the news in the morning as you got ready to go out. I would recommend this hotel if you are in the area. I will stay here again, as long as it is on someone else’s dime.
