    I liked the location being so close to Harvard. The room was great and fell a notch above what I was expecting.

    The pool was not part of the hotel but connected and therefore had weird restrictions on kids using the pool.

    Location is fab, blue bike just outside, easy access to T and Charles river walks.

    The complementary bikes were not great, maybe cause it was summer. But given the Blue bikes, there is no need for it.
