The Charles has a great location in Harvard Sq. But, if Harvard Sq isn't your focus, stay elsewhere. The rooms are very small, do not have a refrigerator, nor a coffee maker. The bathrooms are tiny and have the least possible wattage bulbs. You will need a flashlight to shave or apply make-up! The food in the restaurants is good, not great & the service is slow. Additionally, the room prices are very high - even by Boston standards.
In short: If you have to be in Harvard Sq for an extended time, the Charles is a great location, But, if you are just going to visit Harvard Sq. for a few hours, stay elsewhere in Cambridge or Downtown & take the subway/MBTA or taxi as required. You will be richer, happier & better looking!More
