Fifteen years after first assisting to modernize the Harvard Square Hotel, Arrowstreet was once again commissioned to update the hotel’s image and improve the overall guest experience. The result was a stunning transformation to a modern boutique hotel ideally situated at the heart of Harvard Square. Arrowstreet completely reconfigured the entrance and lobby levels, doubling space available to guests to create a sleek yet comfortable space. At the street entrance, Arrowstreet designed stone and glass monumental stair to invite guests from the Mt. Auburn street entry to the lobby and reception area.
Arrowstreet improved guest room function and space within the existing small framework to maintain the total number of rooms in the hotel. Contemporary custom furnishings were carefully designed to maximize storage and workspace. Light colors with bright crimson accents, oversized art, and glass tiled showers expand the sense of volume throughout the room.
