3 star hotel
Area: Prudential - St. Botolph, Boston
2.70 mi from Harvard University
Best Rooms: The side of the building facing Boylston St. offers decent city views. Rooms ending in *05 (i.e. 605, 705) sit at the corner of Blagden and Exeter Streets, and depending on how high of a floor you're on, you may be able to catch a glimpse of the Charles River; these will likely be the best views offered from the hotel.
