    Location, very clean, excellent coffee

    We were there to drop our kid for college, elevators were not working, we couldn't carry anything upstairs so we had to leave stuff in the lobby and most of the things in the car. Had to come down in the morning to get clothes and shoes.

    Great location in the heart of Harvard Square! Very helpful and accommodating staff. Hotel has a clean, urban, contemporary feeling. It was an ideal place to stay for dropping off a student at Harvard and for using the subway.

    The elevator was under repair, but the staff was very accommodating with luggage. The repairs are estimated to be completed by early September.

    Elevator was out of order-staying on the 2nd Floor it was horrible. Also 2nd Floor might not sound bad for lugging everything to room but it really was as there were four long flights of stairs not counting the stairs in the lobby to street. Something should be done to compensate for this.

    Location (near the Harvard T-station). Free wifi.

    Overpriced, given no breakfast and a relatively basic room design.

    Location to the center of Harvard's campus life and the surrounding area.

    Poor recommendations by staff for dinner.

    Great location in the heart of Harvard Square

    We travelled with two teenage children. Room with two double beds was tiny. One bed was practically up against the wall so impossible to exit bed from one side. Bathroom had no room for toiletries. Parking was convenient but expensive. Elevator not working most of the day we were there and staircase was stifling.

    Right in Harvard Square, close to everything, including a T stop a block away. A great base to explore Cambridge and the entire Boston area. Although not overly large, the room was clean, comfortable and very quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

    I have no complaints.

    Location was the best aspect of the hotel. Despite the mediocre quality of the building and rooms, the staff/service was great, going so far as to place a birthday note and candy in the room for my girlfriend. The large window allowed for good daylight, and a nice view.

    I chose the hotel due to the recent "renovations" touted on the website. The renovations, however, were bare minimum, surface only, and poor quality. Once past the shiny, yet cheesy, lobby with friendly staff, it was all downhill. The elevator was tiny, old, and seemed to struggle getting to the fourth floor, becoming progressively slower. Once off the elevator, I felt I was back in the seventies, as the carpet, wall surfaces, and lighting, had clearly not been updated. The room itself was cramped, and the air conditioner was unable to bring the temperature any lower than 74 degrees, despite the tiny size of the room. All the furniture was very modern and very cheap. The bathroom wasn't terrible, but had similar low-end modern surface updates, and pieces of the previous door hardware were blatantly sticking out of the door, as newer hardware had been installed slightly adjacent to it. The vanity mirror had clearly not been upgraded, as pieces of Formica were peeling off the side, and it was spaced off the wall with layers of double sided tape.

    Location, location, location. Great bang for your buck and the staff is great.

    The wifi was horrible. There is a free "Harvard Guest" option that is a tiny bit better.

    Excellent location, close to Harvard Square, 200 m from the subway station, great for exploring the city. Breakfast is not available at the hotel, but there are several places in close proximity.

    The hotel has been renovated in the last year, so it's worth trying again if you didn't like it in the past.

    Everything in Cambridge is amazingly expensive. If I was a tourist rather than a business traveler with meetings at Harvard, I would have stayed somewhere less expensive.

    Nice clean room with great location.

    VERY small room and bathroom. Too small for 4 people to maneuver suitcases etc. Sized better for 2 people.

    The location, and helpfulness of the staff, except for one man who was over-helpful!

    I had trouble with the fan/heating system - never did get it to work.

    The staff was amazingly accommodating. There was confusion with my reservation so they had four room options ready for me. Everyone I spoke with throughout my stay was welcoming and helpful.

    Parking was a bit confusing. I was expecting a valet but there was not one. Since we were unfamiliar with the poroporty we didn't know to just park anywhere. Since there was a thrifty car rental right next to the entrance of the hotel weren't sure if it parking was for that or the hotel.
