    Get married here. Seriously. You will not be sorry you chose the Commander. Judy, the events manager, is the most amazing person. She helped us through every step of the process, had great ideas, was super responsive, and was an overall delight to work with. Now that my wedding is over, I'm a little disappointed that I won't be able to hang out with her any more! The staff at the Commander were consistently friendly, attentive, efficient, and just so nice! From bellhops to waiters, everyone rocked! And the food! The food is outstanding! Over 140 meals were served on time, with no guests waiting around. I'd recommend the devils on horseback for cocktail hour. The Commander only takes one wedding at a time, and it shows! The hotel itself is beautiful, with lots of historic touches and a George Washington theme. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. You can't beat the location in Harvard Square, 5 minutes from the T. My favorite banquet rooms are the Lexington and Concord rooms with amazing original windows, which is where we hosted brunch. So many guests kept coming up to the groom and I to tell us how much they loved the food, the staff, and the hotel. I cannot sing the praises of the Commander loud enough!

    We fell in love with the Sheraton Commander as soon as we walked in the door! Every person we met, from the reception desk to the event planners to the folks who clean to the valet person to anyone whose path we crossed were professional, polite, caring, eager to help and welcoming. The Sheraton Commander is our Number One go to place when visiting Cambridge.

    Sheraton Commander Hotel's reply:

    Barbara, It was a true pleasure working with you and your entire family. We hope that next time you are in Cambridge you stop by and say hello! It was an honor to be part of your celebration. Thank you! Judy & Kristen
