The Charles Hotel Review

: Ideally located right next to Harvard Square, this nine-story hotel has been welcoming business and leisure travelers since 1985. The d├ęcor reflects a contemporary take on country Americana reminiscent of the Shaker style. Arts, dining and entertainment can be found on the nearby campus and square. The hotel's restaurants are acclaimed citywide, as is the bountiful Sunday brunch. Guest rooms include nice touches such as quilts stuffed with down and Seura "in the mirror" bathroom televisions. The lobby library is a pleasant place to spend a rainy afternoon curled up with a book, or to work on your university application forms. From a swinging jazz bar to a pampering day spa, this property houses a nice collection of indulgences. Guests enjoy free access to the neighboring health club and pool.
