Stayed here while my husband had conference at Harvard. Because of the kids, he wanted to be close enough to come back and forth from the campus. If that wasn't so, probably would not have chosen this hotel. First, the parking lot is tiny. $35 per day to park there, and they have said that we can go in and out as we please (I have heard that some hotels you can't since it's valet parking); however, we didn't use our car because we feared that we might not find another parking lot when we came back. Not that we really needed car for the trip we had planned. There is a small lobby. Staff seems very nice. The room is small, but clean. Free wi-fi is nice. There is no coffee machine. For a hotel ~300 per night, you think there would be complementary coffees.. There is a small snack bar at the lobby where you can get coffee for fee. There is no bath tub which would be fine but my daughter hates shower. We stayed in the two double bed room. The beds are very comfortable. Our room faced the street/parking lot, but still had a nice view of the town being on the third floor. The fridge in the room was nice so we can keep our kids milk. Another thing that was little inconvenient is that in order to get to the elevator from the street, you have to get in to one of those handicap lift which did not work for me; I had a stroller with me for my one year old.
With all the little 'issues' I had with the hotel, the truth is that we will probably stay here again. the location is AWESOME. This place does not need any restaurant in the building, since there are tons of places just few steps away from the area. For any conferences/business that you might have at Harvard, really you can go in and out as you pleases since it's close proximity.
