Harvard Square Hotel

Step out of Sheraton Commander Hotel and onto Harvard Square, one of Cambridge's most renowned attractions. Harvard Square, also encompassing Harvard Yard and nearby Cambridge Common, has served as a meeting and commercial point since the Revolutionary War.

When you stay at our Harvard Square hotel, you not only experience a piece of authentic history, you're located in the heart of charming Cambridge, Massachusetts. Don't miss the following neighborhood favorites:

Harvard Square Bookstore - This new and used bookstore has been a local staple for more than 80 years and often plays host to many popular authors and book signings.

Leavitt & Pierce Tobacconist - Established in 1883, this tobacco shop has a wide selection of traditional and unique gifts.

The Garage - Formerly an actual parking garage, this shopping center and food court still retains the original driving ramps inside.

World's Only Curious George Store - Your one-stop-shop for Curious George merchandise as well as other children's toys, clothing, and books.


Our Harvard Square hotel is just a five minute walk from the nearby MBTA subway and bus station. Guests may travel up to North Cambridge and Somerville or down into the city of Boston.
