The Charles Hotel cover
Description Located just minutes from downtown Boston and a variety of world-class attractions, The Charles is a AAA Four Diamond Hotel and a proud member of Preferred Hotels and Resorts.

Reflecting the eclecticism that is Cambridge, The Charles Hotel is a modern interpretation of New England hospitality with a thriving jazz club, the Regattabar, two signature restaurants, year-round Farmers Market, state of the art conference facilities, Corbu Spa & Salon, and a central location in the heart of Harvard Square.

The Hotel is home to Henrietta’s Table, featuring “fresh and honest” home cooking, and Benedetto, the second Cambridge-based Italian restaurant for the talented Chef Michael Pagliarini. Noir, the hotel’s chic, cozy bar, serves classic cocktails mixed to perfection and sultry signature drinks until 2 a.m. Since its opening in 1985, The Regattabar has established itself as the leading jazz and world music club in Boston and the New England area. Corbu Spa & Salon is named after famed architect and designer, Le Corbusier and offers a harmonious escape from the stresses of urban life. A French influenced menu offers seasonal treatments with locally sourced ingredients. Open daily.

With frequent recognition in The Wall Street Journal, Travel + Leisure and Boston magazine, The Charles Hotel has earned its reputation as a leading independent hotel. In 2011, the Hotel was recognized by Travel + Leisure in the annual World’s Best Survey as one of the 500 Top Rated Hotels and as one of the top 25 World’s Best Business Hotels in 2010.

As the winner of the “Good Earthkeeping Award” by the American Hotel and Lodging Association, the green-minded Hotel implements a guestroom green program, recycles, composts, uses environmentally-friendly products and, in 2009, introduced the nation’s first “Juice Bar” for electric cars, as well as a nanoMAX� small car detection system, within its parking garage.
