The hotel closest to Harvard Law School is the Sheraton Commander, a pleasant 5-10 minute, 0.2 mile walk across Cambridge Common. We have reserved fifteen rooms at a group rate of $209/night (plus state and local taxes), approximately 10% less than their usual online rate. This rate is only available until February 18 or until all 15 rooms are booked, so early booking is strongly advised; check the hotel website for complete terms and conditions. If you phone the hotel (+1 888 627 7121), be sure to mention the Barbara Pym Society.
Nearby B&Bs include Irving House at Harvard, Mary Prentiss Inn, Parkside on Ellery, A Bed & Breakfast in Cambridge, and Harding House. There are also numerous Airbnb listings in the area.
There are several other hotels that are just 2 or 3 stops away on the Red Line, either in Cambridge (Marriott, Kendall, Marlowe, and Royal Sonesta near the Kendall-MIT stop) or just across the river in Boston (Wyndham and Liberty near the Charles-MGH stop). And some of the large downtown Boston and Back Bay hotels (Park Plaza, Parker House) may offer better rates than those closer to Harvard.
