Accommodations for 55th Reunion
The Eliot Hotel, 370 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215, is a five-star hotel which adjoins the Harvard Club of Boston (they share a common wall). It is a 30-second walk to the HCB, making it extremely convenient and accessible. There are 20 rooms reserved (the maximum amount). They are all suites and can accommodate two persons, each with a separate room. These are luxury rooms. The cost for the rooms are $436.50 per night, plus a 14.95% local tax rate. The parking cost is approximately $40.00 per day. Rooms can be reserved by contacting The Eliot Hotel at 617-267-1607 and referring to the “Harvard-Radcliffe Reunion” to get the discounted rate. The rooms at the Eliot Hotel must be reserved by March 16, 2022. Since these rooms are suites with 2 separate rooms, 2 classmates can share the suite cutting the per night cost in half, a good value.
We have reserved 25 rooms (the maximum amount) at the La Quinta Inn and Suites by Wyndham, 23 Cummings Street, Somerville, MA 02145. 20 of the rooms are regular rooms with either one king sized bed or two queen sized beds. They can comfortably accommodate two people. 5 of the rooms are suites, which can be occupied by two people, each having his or her own separate sleeping room. The cost for the regular room is $179.00 per night and the cost for the suite is $229.00 per night. To the cost of these prices must be added the 14.95% tax. The La Quinta is 5.3 miles from the HCB, is on a public transportation line that connects near the HCB and is a 14-minute drive, or a modest cab fare from the HCB. La Quinta provides free parking and a free breakfast. The nature of the breakfast is to be determined by the COVID situation in May 2022. There are numerous quality restaurants in walking distance to La Quinta. Rooms can be reserved by calling La Quinta at 617-625-5300 x5 and referring to the “Harvard-Radcliffe Reunion Block” and the group rate code of CGHRUI. The rooms at La Quinta must be reserved by April 1, 2022. The La Quinta is an excellent lower cost option. All the rooms can be shared by 2 classmates, which again cuts the cost per night in half. While La Quinta is not a luxury hotel it is quite acceptable and perfectly adequate. Many families coming to Boston for graduations patronize La Quinta as do families of patients treating at the nearby Massachusetts General Hospital.
