The Inside Scoop by our Local Expert

Harvard University is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States and currently comprises ten separate academic units. The Harvard Square Hotel is a downtown property located in the heart of Harvard Square and is within walking distance to the metro, which can take you to and from the airport. Aside from its centered proximity to Harvard University, it is also less than half a mile from many museums and the Mount Auburn Hospital. The Marriott Courtyard Boston/Cambridge Hotel is another ideal property about 1 mile from Harvard University, but has a great little Japanese restaurant on-site. There is a nightly parking fee, but well worth the time and effort than trying to find ample street parking. The Marriott is also located right across from the Charles River, where you can walk and enjoy the scenery towards the Harvard area where there are a number of eateries. Both Hotels offer great amenities at a fair price.
