Where will I be housed during my program?
For most programs, your accommodations will be at the Doubletree Hotel, a Harvard-owned property along the banks of the Charles River overlooking the iconic red brick buildings and white cupolas of the Harvard campus. At the Doubletree, you’ll enjoy a private two-room suite along with many shared spaces for socializing, studying, group project time, and dining. To see if housing is included in your program fee, please visit the program's webpage.
Why is housing provided?
Executive Education is an intense, immersive learning experience. You will learn from your peers in class, as well as in study groups, during breaks and meals, and at other social activities. The Doubletree space promotes informal gathering in a comfortable and collaborative setting. In order to maximize the benefit of peer networking, it is important for the whole class cohort to be housed together.
What do the accommodations include?
You will stay in a private two-room suite with a bedroom, separate living room, and bathroom. Each suite includes a king-size bed, two 27-inch high-definition televisions, coffee/tea maker, small refrigerator, microwave oven, and complimentary wireless internet. You will also be able to extend your stay by booking up to three additional nights pre-program and/or up to three additional nights post-program at the best rate available, based on space availability.
Can my family stay with me in the hotel?
While we strongly recommend that participants schedule any family visits after the completion of their program, the newly renovated suites are large enough to accommodate families traveling with participants (up to two adults, which includes the participant, and two children per room).
How will I get to class?
There is a dedicated shuttle to and from class at the beginning and end of each day’s schedule. There is also a Harvard Shuttle Service which provides a loop around our campuses throughout the day. We do not advise you to bring or rent a car while attending a program, as parking can be expensive and hard to find.
For those who want some exercise, it is only a 20-minute walk on a paved path along the scenic banks of the Charles River from the Doubletree to Harvard Kennedy School. The walk passes by Harvard’s beautiful undergraduate river houses and the Harvard Business School campus.
