Our wedding and event services go to the top of the class. We’ve lavished couples, families and companies with remarkable moments and captivating events. Here are some of their experiences: 

"Again, I want to thank you for your efforts on our behalf. We had a very good experience at the Charles Hotel and you did a good job! The people who served us at both the cocktail hour and the reception were excellent and we appreciate their hard work. Please let the management know this. We would happily recommend the Charles Hotel for a wedding reception!"

Mother of the Bride - Regattabar, May 2017

"Thank you for being part of our 10th annual colloquium. I appreciated particularly your flexibility and assistance with our hotel arrangements. What a great job you did this year in ensuring our participants enjoyed their stay in Cambridge. We look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship"

Institute for Inclusive Security

"We had an amazing time at our event...And we have received nothing but rave reviews from everyone – the couple, our family, the bride’s family, all our friends and colleagues who attended the event.

Everything was so professionally managed including the set-up and the service during and after the event. But perhaps most importantly, there is a graciousness and sense of going “above and beyond” on the part of all the staff that makes the event extra special. I was greeted by a server who had worked at my son’s Bar Mitzvah in 2003 (a testimony to how well treated your staff are, that they don’t leave!). Steve (who managed that evening) was always around and available to take care of things. On the day of the event I decided we needed to have dancing, so the DJ had to set up extra equipment, and your AV people swung into action and helped him set up...Thank you for that, and for all the big and small ways you accommodated our crazy multi-ethnic family and helped us make a happy celebration, extra-fun, loving and spectacular. I hope to have many more happy events at the Charles in the future. And in the meantime, our heartfelt thanks for all you did to make our last event so fabulous."

Mother of the Groom - Pavilion, December 2016

"Thank you for the terrific event you made possible for us last evening! I could not have been more pleased with the setting, service, and food, and you and your colleagues' accommodations of all our many special requests. The pace was perfect too. We received lots of compliments on the food, and the dessert was an absolute hit. Please relay many thanks to all your colleagues who helped last night.

As a first experience working with you and your team, this certainly will not be our last! And we look forward to working together again over the coming years as the Fogg is renovated.

With many thanks!"

Ann Starnbach

“The service at The Charles Hotel was second to none and the facilities were extremely good. Thanks to you, our event was a big success and I would like to thank you very much for looking after us so well and for making all our guests feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and all our requests were met very quickly and efficiently. Thank you so much for everything."

Capgemini, UK

"The evening was magical and Abby was treated like a princess! (The rest of the family felt like royalty, too.) The decor was gorgeous, the food phenomenal, the Siagel and hotel staff brought their A+ game which together made for one heck of an amazing party.

Thank you, thank you, thank you."

Debbie- Mother - Ballroom, May 2017

"I just wanted to say thank you for everything. Super Saturday went really well and our experience at The Charles was great (as usual!). The students were raving about the hotel! I also wanted to send a special thanks to the entire banquets team that worked our event on Friday. They really took extra care of us."


"Thanks for helping us organize our recent visit to Harvard Business School. This event could not have been a success without your help.

Our visit and the discussions we had with the students were productive and enjoyable. We hope to have specific proposals for them as they approach graduation. We look forward to working with you again successfully in the future."

PER MBA Recruitment Team

"Thank you for all of your help with our 1L Panel & Reception. It was a great event! The food was amazing, and everything ran very smoothly. The Charles Hotel does a great job of making both students and guests feel at home! Again, thank you for everything."

Proskauer Rose LLP

"We are so pleased with the way the whole evening went! The hotel and its employees were so accommodating, pleasant, and professional! The hors d'oeuvres, dinner, and dessert were wonderful. Our guests really seemed to enjoy themselves throughout the event, all while supporting our school. We've already gotten such positive feedback from the Fayerweather community. Thank you so very much for your guidance throughout the process. It truly was a pleasure working with you!"

Diane Braunstein

"Once again – you and your teams did an exceptional job last night.

We appreciate the hard work you and your folks put in to make the event such a great time for our students. They truly enjoyed themselves."

Harvard University

"Thank you so much for all your help with the Gala this year – you and your team were absolutely fantastic and helped make my job so much easier."

The Guidance Center

"On behalf of the MIT VCPE Club, we would like to thank you for being so accommodating during the just concluded 6th Annual MIT Private Equity Symposium. We really appreciate the fact that you went out of your way to cater to us.

As always, we value the relationship we’ve built with the Charles Hotel over the past few years; this is the fourth successive year we’ve held the Symposium at the Charles, and the experience continues to be the highest standard and quality.

We are definitely looking forward to partnering with the Charles on future events."
