Utterly modern, the purpose-built Charles Hotel nonetheless has an air of relaxed refinement that befits its smart Harvard Square location. Guest rooms are kept simple, with a New England aesthetic that includes Shaker furniture and handmade quilted comforters on the beds. DVD players, flatscreen TVs and sleek Seura 'in mirror' bathroom televisions add to the air of unobtrusive luxury. The Charles is also home to an impressive line-up of bars and restaurants: the renowned Rialto, Henrietta's Table, whose menu highlights organic and local produce, the seductive Noir bar, and the Regattabar, a nationally recognised jazz hotspot. In winter, a skating 'pond' is set up in the hotel's courtyard, while during the summer months the famed Legal Seafoods hosts a popular raw bar here. All in all, a unique place to stay.
