Notes: We very much enjoyed our spacious room that accommodated our family of four in a king bed and two rollaways.  Compared to most hotels, the Kennedy School’s maximum occupancy per room policy is rather flexible (which could be beneficial to larger families).

Not to be Missed: Our kids loved watching movies in the old auditorium, while we all enjoyed an early ‘happy hour’ dinner in our seats. Minors are also welcomed at the Courtyard Restaurant and the Cypress Room with kids menus, but naturally are excluded from the bars (such as the very cool ‘Detention Bar’).
