The Charles enjoys an unparalleled location in Harvard Square, literally on top of Harvard. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and quiet, the design of the whole hotel in side is a sort of colonial modern idiom, with quilts for decoration in the halls and contemporary Windsor chairs as accents here and there. The staff is so welcoming, you might think they had known you for years. Children and pets welcome, but not at all disturbing. Nice views onto the courtyard and Charles River beyond and onto the Harvard Kennedy School. Parking is super convenient, but count on an extra $40 per day.
