I worked at the original, Le Pli Spa in the Charles, 20 some years ago. But I've never actually stayed in the hotel itself and had never seen the rooms. The location is mint. It's in Harvard Sq but just on the edge with easy access to make a get away without driving around the loop of the Square. And it's great access to public transportation, and just plain hoofin it. The hotel has exceptional restaurants, a full spa & fitness center, bars, I think it's a jazz bar still I didn't go in this time but it's got it all. There's also an Avis rent-a-car onsite which is extremely convenient. The rooms are large, and you pretty much can't get a bad view with it's ideal location. The bed is very comfortable, I have a lot of orthopedic injuries so this is something that is key for me. I slept better than I sleep in my own bed at the Charles. It's got an upscale feel to it but it's not outrageously priced for all the amenities in the hotel itself and the room which is definitely worth it. The staff are great, very friendly and go the extra mile. It instantly became one of my favorite hotels and I will absolutely keep coming back!
