My husband and I go to the Charles often. We have two children at Harvard. It is the nicest property in Cambridge and has a great workout facility. It's a great location right in the heart of Cambridge. The staff is really nice. The casual restaurant Henrietta's is really good food and nice setting. Sometimes the hostess has an attitude but hey , it's Cambridge.
The rooms are nice but boring. And they should be updated soon.
I do think they take advantage of the college parents charging 3x their normal rate for graduation. That's the reward one gets for being loyal all four years. It's a nice hotel but overpriced when compared to the Westin in Copley for example. Rooms are nicer and better lit. Lighting at the Charles is horrible. And bathroom space average . But it is the place I would stay when visiting Cambridge !More
