We recently checked into the Charles Hotel in the heart of Harvard Square for a staycation in the city.
The hotel has undergone some recent renovations and although I didn't experience the "before", I certainly can appreciate the "after".
The rooms are tastefully appointed with classic details such as batten paneling walls, Shaker chairs as well as Harvard chairs, however the highlight was the mirror TV in the bathroom, which, let's be honest, is the coolest thing, ever.
Bonus points for complimentary wi-fi, absolutely always a necessity.
