    From our entry to our departure we were met with friendly yet unobtrusive service from all staff. The response to requests was immediate at every turn. We very much appreciated the quiet room. We were never bothered by unwanted noise.

    The Charles Hotel is our favorite location when staying in Cambridge. The rooms are spacious, quiet and crisp. The location is easy walking distance to Cambridge shops, restaurants and the Harvard Museums. The main restaurant is very good.
