    About this area

    Cambridge

    The Charles Hotel is located on a river and in an area with good shopping. The area's natural beauty can be seen at Boston Public Garden and Boston Common, while Semitic Museum and Museum of Science are cultural highlights. Check out an event or a game at Fenway Park, and consider making time for New England Aquarium, a top attraction not to be missed. Our guests appreciate the hotel's central and quiet location. It's also convenient for public transport: Harvard Square Station is 6 minutes by foot.
