    The location is really convenient for access Harvard University.

    The bath tab water was clogged. No hair blower in the bathroom.

    The location

    i used to come to you few years ago and spent few times there. Now i came back after 5-7 years and insisted to stay at your hotel and i was really disappointed and consider not to come back next time i will in Boston: the price is high comparing to what you get: the staff was not nice and as not welcoming. I was shocked when i realize that i have to pay for parking using the computer downstairs and not having any thing for breakfast. The feeling was that you try to get as much money and save on us as much. Sorry for this poor experience.

    Staff at front desk were very alert & accommodating. We loved the price & proximity to Harvard Square.

    Small, out of date bathroom was a bummer.

    there was one concierge who made our experience of the hotel services above average. His name is Avidan Attia. He was able to "zone in" on our needs without us barely even saying anything.He efficiently took care of us, including booking tickets for shows for us, directions, maps.He went the extra mile. He was polite, patient and thorough. Very professional- better than the manager. The room service was good, people were polite.

    overall, it was a satisfactory hotel. The desk help was average. After Avidan Attia, the concierge, helped us one day, I realized that I can expect better service from the desk. So my assessment of the other desk help went from average to mediocre.

    We loved the stay at the HSH. Beautifully designed in a European modern aesthetic which we found comfortable, smart and clean. We wish more hotels were like this. If you are visiting Harvard or Boston (train stop is a 2-minute walk) you will love the location. We also loved the services surrounding the hotel --- great highly regarded cafe serving awesome cappuccino, cool shops, excellent retaurants, etc. We are already planning to return for our next Boston visit.

    Superb

    Location worked well for our trip to watch our daughter run the Boston Marathon. Hotel was very clean, and the hotel staff very accommodating.

    Bathroom was very small and the fan did not work.

    Great location - It was very close to my niece at Harvard which is why we stayed there. My room was clean.

    Only one elevator - I know the hotel is going to be closed soon for renovations so was not surprised when they were moving furniture out from the fourth floor. I cannot figure out why management did not tell the movers not to use the elevator from 11:30-12:00 noon when we were trying to check out. This is a problem when there is one elevator. It would be nice to have coffee and continental breakfast in the hotel at least.
