About

Location.

The Charles Hotel is located in Cambridge, Mass, just off the Charles River in the center of Harvard Square, filled with quaint cafes and boutique shops. This stylish New England retreat is five miles from Boston Logan International Airport and less than three miles from downtown Boston. Nearby cultural attractions include the American Reparatory Theatre, the Harvard Art Museums and Brattle Theatre, all within four blocks of the hotel.

Hotel Features.

The well-lit, contemporary lobby features original paintings of Cambridge streets and New England architecture, fresh floral arrangements, and clean lines. The lobby also provides a quiet setting for reading in the library nook. Kid's Kit gift bags, filled with toys and activities, are handed out to children upon arrival. The Charles Hotel features four eateries on site, including French and Italian fine dining, a jazz club, New England inspired café, a 1940s-style martini lounge, and a quick, casual restaurant. Ten meeting and conference rooms, wireless Internet access, an automated teller machine, car rental, and a 24-hour business center are also provided. Adjacent to the hotel are Corbu Spa and Salon and Wellbridge, a full-service health club and fitness center, with an indoor pool, spa tub, sauna, steam room, fitness machines, and spa services.

Guestrooms.

The 295 spacious guestrooms feature floor to ceiling panoramic windows and Shaker-style accents reminiscent of a New England boarding school. Custom-made furnishings include professor's chairs and desks. Extra accents include black chalkboards with chalk artwork, oversized clock, and wooden coat pegs. Guest beds are dressed with handcrafted down quilts and premium linens. Bathrooms feature Seura in-mirror televisions, bathrobes, bathroom scales, makeup mirrors, Origins bath products, and shower/tub combinations.
