A charming Cambridge stay right across the river from Boston, near Harvard and just minutes from the city

So you can’t, in fact, park your car in the Harvard Yard, but park it in the Harvard-area Courtyard, and you’re doing the next-best thing. On the banks of the Charles, this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner is just a stone’s throw from the university’s campus, a mere 10-minute drive from central Massachusetts Hall and the famous green, the birthplace of the Ivy League.

Of course, there’s much more to Cambridge than its most iconic college – and we don’t just mean its second-most-iconic college, MIT, also nearby. This charming city is right next to Boston, making it your gateway to Fenway Park, the Freedom Trail and the beautiful boating pond at the Boston Public Garden. It’s also home to charming boutiques, a lively dining scene and a host of landmark sites. And for that matter, there’s more to Courtyard than its Cambridge location. Between its lively bistro, teppanyaki-cooking spot and convenience store, you’ll be well fed, and with a cozy room to sleep in, you may prefer to park yourself right here.
