We just completed our fifth stay at The Charles, all within the span of one year. We chose to splurge and stay here the first time we visited Harvard with our daughter, due to its close proximity to campus, and were completely spoiled by the incredibly convenient location and lovely facilities, When planning each subsequent visit to Cambridge (for interview, pre-orientation program, move-in days, musical performances, etc.), we always looked into alternate hotels (only because their rates were much lower!) but we just could not bring ourselves to give up the understated luxury, warmth, friendliness, and convenience of our beloved Charles ... and ended up staying there each time! While we could definitely have saved hundreds of dollars by staying elsewhere, The Charles has become our "home away from home" and we are hooked. We'll be back this weekend! What we love: the pristine cleanliness of the rooms, excellent level of service, fabulous breakfasts at cozy Henrietta's Table, helpful front-desk, valet, and concierge staff, "retro" bicycles to borrow, and location, location, location!! What we don't love: the crazy/high rates!!!
