A little gem in Cambridge
A weekend away in sunny Cambridge. This hotel was a beautifully converted fire hall. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The decor was lovely. The furniture selection was gorgeous. It was a short walk to the T and well situated for Harvard, MIT and Boston. The breakfast was superb!

Charming, comfortable, and perfect location.
Lovely hotel! Right by MIT, right beside the subway stop, a stop away from Central Square, and two stops from Harvard. The room was large and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Also the breakfast was pretty solid. Great for trips to the big universities.
