Our take on The Charles Hotel

A luxurious property found steps from Harvard Square, the Charles Hotel is a four-star property that's sure to please every guest that walks through its doors. This independent Boston hotel has attracted a variety of celebrity patrons that range from movie stars like Ben Affleck to world leaders like the Dalai Lama. Whether you're in the area for business, to visit Harvard's brainiac campus or just for a family vacation, the Charles Hotel has lots of amenities that'll surely make the most of your stay. In addition to typical amenities like flat-screen TVs and comfy mattresses, you'll also find state-of-the-art features like free Wi-Fi, DVD players and TVs built into every guestroom bathroom mirror. In the warm months, be sure to rent a bicycle so you can enjoy Boston's cityscape from the banks of the Charles River, but once winter settles in, you definitely won't want to miss out on the hotel's very own outdoor skating rink.
