Nicely decorated, comfortable room. Helpful and efficient staff. Drawbacks, HVAC unit was super noisy and I had to turn it off to sleep. TV was poor, low def channels on an HD set leads to grainy reception. Few emenities

Somewhat surprised there was no microwave or coffee service in the room. Beds were somewhat "crowded."

Wonderful stay at Harvard Square Hotel. Room was great - clean, modern, comfortable and with nice views of Cambridge. Highlight of my stay was hotel staff and manager service - they went out of their way to help me during my stay. Had a really enjoyable experience with them, will definitely stay again. 5 stars.

Fair 4.0
At over $450 / night you would expect some basic things to be taken care of. 1. Temperature. It was 76+ in the room and no way to address that without opening a window to a construction site and bus stop 2. This is 2019. HD tv is expected. Not a 45 inch tv in SD and only old school 15 channel choices 3. A lobby - the 500 square foot lobby was fine, but that was it. It felt like the pay booth for the parking garage. 4. Pillows that don't feel like over inflated balloons 5. A sink that drains. Gross. 6. Drawers. Your options for unpacking are a single 1 foot wide shelf, the desk like table top or the floor. 7. Did I mention temperature control !!! 8. Ugh, so many more ... never again
