    Cambridge is one of our favorite places and the Charles Hotel is a great place to stay! Service is excellent, the rooms spacious and well appointed, and the location can't be beat. The artwork in the rooms is very clever.

    We really loved this hotel! Nice ambience, well-maintained and comfortable rooms. We arrived late and were able to get great room service. Breakfast at Henrietta's Table was a plus. This is a fantastic location if you are wanting to be near Harvard.

    The Charles is, for the most part, satisfactory for adults. Our room was quite comfortable except for a few minor slightly quirky details. (What, no coffee maker?) Curiously, though we were on a high floor, a very few tiny black ants populated our lovely bathroom....More
