The Porter Square Hotel is a small, 65 room, boutique hotel and restaurant in the heart of Porter Square, Cambridge.

Fronting onto Mass Ave and abutting a residential neighborhood, the brick and granite clad 5 story structure fits the scale of it's urban surroundings, with a step-back at the 4th level to create a roof terrace wrapping three sides of the building.  The ground level restaurant opens out to a sidewalk cafe and the rear half of the site will be a landscaped garden, a green roof on the below-grade garage.  The rooms are a mix of efficiently laid-out single rooms and suites and a sun-lit atrium brings natural light into the heart of the building.
