Great location and decent facility but way overpriced for the quality of the hotel. I was particularly disappointed with the bathroom. The toilet paper holder was broken so you had to keep it on the floor or the back of the toilet, the bathroom had...More

The room was not only small but so awkwardly furnished that I could barely open my suitcase. But worse than that, the bathroom was smelly and the shower had not been cleaned properly. To add insult to injury, the room was priced at Manhattan rates!...More

Great location, with friendly, welcoming staff. We had an issue with the ac and were immediately given another room. When there was an issue with water pressure in the shower, they fixed it. Parking a bit high, but that's the case everywhere near the Square.

Great hotel - clean linens/towels/room. Very comfortable (read: squishy) mattress. Fabulous location literally in the middle of Harvard Square. No hotel breakfast (but there are plenty of breakfast options in the square). Beautiful images of Harvard square line the walls, which is a nice touch.

About
Description
The Harvard Square Hotel contemporary in decor is centrally located in the heart of Harvard Square. Just steps away from all that Harvard Square has to offer including the Harvard University Campus, Harvard ...More T-Station, Charles River and the many eclectic stores and restaurants found in the Square. We are also only a few miles to downtown Boston. Our on the go Cafe is a big hit with our guests as the head out to start their day !! Stay tuned for updates as we plan out our hotel renovations scheduled for late 2018 !! Less

Hi, not sure what your question is, but, no we didn't have the opportunity to research it in advance. The stay in Boston was unexpected.

I have not ever had odor issues. Last time I visited, elevator was broken, but no construction. Agree with other reply: just call and ask!
