Rated 3 out of 5 by SusanR51 Location, location, location...was ideal
The hotel's excellent location made it very accessible to Harvard and all the area restaurants and stores while ensuring a short, scenic walk began and ended my day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KK12 Great location & nice hotel
My only two complaints would be the small elevator and the hotel was a little overpriced. I did however love the location in reference to Harvard.

Experience far surpassed our expectations. As a Starwood associate, I didn't expect such a great room (free upgrade!) for the amount paid. WOW!

Rated 2 out of 5 by IrritatingNickName Second Try
Generally, the Commander is a reasonable place to stay. This being my second stay, with a consistent experience, I'll look elsewhere first. I paid top dollar for both stays, and each time was placed in an uncomfortable room. During the first stay, a loud snowblower was scheduled to run all night outside of my 1st floor window. I was moved to an awkward room with exercise equipement in it. Not what I'd expect for the money. This past trip, my top dollar room was more like a closet. The bathroom was cramped and had no room for me to put any of my things. I came away with a couple of new bruises from banging my leg on the furniture, and arm on the door as I tried to dry my hair. The free wifi was non functional the first day, and once repaired (24 hour later) it was so slow as to not be usable for the work I needed to do. I ordered breakfast in my room and the order was wrong. Not a big deal, except that when I tried to simply order tea for my room that night, it was wrong too. Not to mention, no one thought to remind me that I had tea in the room already. It was better business to charge me $10.00 for the tea. I'll avoid the Commander unless there are no other options.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HDCesq Excellent location for Harvard University
Our room on the 4th floor, and the hotel in general, were ok but definitely needs refurbishment.
