Enjoyed the hotel and great location A review of Sheraton Commander Hotel
My husband and I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. All the staff we encountered were pleasant, friendly and professional. The decor is lovely. Our room felt more like we were staying in an Inn rather than a hotel. We had a corner room towards the back of the hotel. We could look out and see neighborhood houses and trees.
I must comment on the shower. The wall mount shower head was amazing. It was about 5 inches around. It felt like I was in a warm rain shower. There was also a knob to adjust the water temp. There was a hand held shower head too.
There is a nice front courtyard area, attractively landscaped. Great for relaxing with a beverage after a day of activity around the area.
We have been to Boston numerous times and it was our first time staying in Cambridge. We loved it. It's about a 7 minute walk to Harvard Square where there are many shops, restaurants and open areas to check out. Lots going on during the day and night.
It is also quite easy to get into Boston. The red line runs from Harvard Square and connects to the the other subway lines. So you can get to almost anywhere in Boston. If you arrive by train the red line has a stop at South Station. I would stay there again.
