I stayed here for a week while doing a course at the Havard Extension school and found it extremely well located right in centre of Cambridge town. The room was spacious although I do think they need to think of just one bed when its just one person. I had two double beds in my room !! Other than switching...

We stayed for one night. It's a quaint old hotel with nice rooms and well located in Cambridge. The price was very reasonable and the rooms clean and comfy. The bar at the restaurant was also enjoyable last night. There is a park across the street that is good for a morning run.

We had stayed at the Commander previously and found it to be a good combination of location and value. Our recent trip was the same. The room was clean and well kept. The front desk staff was courteous and attentive. Despite having a street facing room, there was very little traffic noise. We had breakfast in the hotel to save...

The location of this hotel is perfect, right next to Harvard where I had a course this summer. The hotel rooms were average size for city hotels but big enough for me. The staff were the highlight.

I stayed at the Sheraton Commander Hotel for one night in August during a business trip. The front desk personnel were very friendly and checked me into a room 2 hours before check-in time, which was appreciated after a morning of air travel. My room on the 3rd floor was spacious, and had great amenities for business travelers including free...

Our recent stay at the Sheraton Commander Hotel reminded us how much we enjoy this beautiful hotel. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and the hotel staff is excellent! The Commander is located within walking distance to great public transportation, as well as picturesque neighborhoods in Cambridge.

Nice hotel central to most everything in Cambridge/Harvard Square. Nice rooms, good service and housekeeping. Fairly priced for the Harvard area. This hotel lies within easy walking distance to Harvard metro, Harvard square, and all the restaurants.

Have stayed at Commander a couple of times per year for several years. It is a beautiful hotel with a little bit of history around it, centrally located. Rooms are nice and clean and have received some updates. Last time I was in a very nice and spacious suite. Bathrooms are on the small side. Good and well equipped gym....

Hotel is nice, rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Food at the restaurant is good, but room service food is mediocre. The location of this hotel is perfect if you are visiting colleges in the area. Staff and check-in was fast and friendly.
