    Well located hotel for Cambridge visitors. Unfortunately, the price/value proposition is extremely poor. internet access is horrible, rooms are average. Service is solid, infrastructure average but clean and comfortable enough. Definitely not a 400+ uSD/night proposition.

    Everything was amazing! Of all praise. The hotel has surpassed all expectations: we will definitely recommend it to friends and on the next visits to Boston and Cambridge - we will live at the Charles Hotel.
