    The staff was very helpful and accommodating and very conscious of cleanliness and sanitization measures due to Covid. I felt safe staying in this place and would go back anytime.

    Walking distance to Harvard campus

    We drove up to Cambridge to visit our son last weekend. Absolutely loved staying at Irving House. Drove all day and was able to check in very late. During Covid they have gone to great lengths to make sure everything is clean and you feel very safe staying there. Having had to pay for parking last time we visited it was wonderful to have your own parking space. We also enjoyed our breakfast eaten outside on the front porch. Will reserve my room again for a visit this spring! Highly recommend!!!

    Terrific place, with a very friendly and helpful staff. If you're visiting someone at Harvard it's hard to find a better location. Beware the parking lot, though. It's very convenient, buy a little tricky to navigate! We'll certainly try to stay here again!

    The perfect COVID getaway

    My best friend and I needed a night in Harvard after a long time apart, and the Irving house was the perfect spot. It was safe, clean, and healthy and at the perfect price. I just recommended it to my family for another trip. Thanks for everything!
