    Very enjoyable hotel, it has a way of making you feel "at home". Subway station not too far away (Porter Sq.), plenty of shops/restaurants in close proximity on Massachusetts Av. I would definitely come back. The resident cat was cute :) [beware of allergens]

    There was a full breakfast served in the morning. It was conveniently located about 5 blocks from Harvard. It was affordably priced at $139 for a loft style queen room. There was free parking.

    My room smelled a little of carpet-glue, but overall it was well worth it for what I got.

    Mothers of students on college visits, attending academic or sports camps,visiting sons/daughters at Harvard this is a wonderful place to stay. It is very comfortable, beautiful relaxed setting, delicious breakfast and cookies, free parking and a gracious staff. It is a short walk to the bustling Harvard Square and there are numerous nearby restaurants.

    My room opened onto the deck, which was full of flowers and well maintained. The room itself was comfortable, decorated with a nod to history, yet with the modern advantage of a whirlpool tub.

    Very friendly welcome, wonderful staff, beautiful surroundings (room and outdoor area). Late check-out with a tasty breakfast. Just a generally nice vibe. Rooms are decorated beautifully. Close to Harvard University area.

    Fabulous

    I enjoyed the convenient location. The Inn itself was beautiful, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The check-in times and staff were most helpful.

    As I said on the room review form, I had many problems with the tv remote. I thought perhaps it just needed new batteries but that was not the case. The tv had to be manually turned off and I could not change the channels. Also the air conditioner was extremely loud at lower temperatures.

    Wonderfully appointed bedroom, great breakfast

    The cost is competitive with other Harvard area hotels and b&B. I find the $200 / night price after tax Excessive. This is not directly the fault of mpi, just the culture that dictates that lodging charges as high as the market will bear.

    A real gem of a hotel. A classic New England building within easy walking distance of Harvard. Close to a subway station: surrounded by decent and varied restaurants. Finely decorated rooms: the whole ambience exuded old world charm. The cooked breakfast was excellent and the tea ( fine bone china) and home-baked biscuits in the afternoon was just so. Staff were helpful and knowledgeable about the local area and Boston. A most enjoyable stay.

    Excellent location for our purpose: to visit out daughter who is a student at Harvard. We liked that it was relatively small but homely and had a very good ambience. The breakfast was excellent and would love to go back for more! Very friendly staff as well. Overall, we had a wonderful experience.

    Superb

    The building and setting were charming, the staff accommodating, the breakfast a good start to the day, the parking a great convenience, and the location was perfect for the activities we had planned.

    Temperature control was tricky and air (from heater) in room dry for sleeping.

    Exceptional

    What a warm, welcoming inn. I was made to feel comfortable for my entire trip. Complimentary tea and homemade cookies in the lobby by the fire, multiple options for the complimentary breakfast, helpful staff, and a cozy, well-decorated, and well laid-out room in which to stay all made me feel as if I were on vacation rather than a business trip.

    Note that there is a cat -- this would only be a problem for people with allergies (I was unaffected).
