Charles River


Stay at our Charles River hotel, and enjoy convenient access to a bustling neighborhood with scenic pathways and a variety of outdoor activities. The Charles River is home to seasonal events throughout the year, including the Head of the Charles regatta in the fall, the Annual Earth Day Charles River Cleanup in the spring and the Boston Dragon Bost Festival and Cambridge River Arts Festival in the summer.

The Charles River is also the ideal spot for outdoor activities. Go for a run along the shores, ride a bike down the many paths or watch local university teams practice and compete in crew competitions. Want to participate in water sports yourself? Canoes, kayaks and paddleboards are available for rent from Charles River Canoe & Kayak, whose Allston location is just a 10-minute drive or 30-minute walk from our Charles River hotel.


Sheraton Commander Hotel is less than half a mile from the river at its closest point. Walk south down Garden Street, then turn right onto Mason Street. Mason Street will become Ash Street after a slight right before you reach the Charles River.
