Be sure to request a room in the north tower, so as to overlook the harbor.
Fodor's
"Call it the anti-boutique hotel: The 424-room InterContinental, facing both the waterfront and the Rose Kennedy Greenway, consists of two opulent, 22-story towers wrapped in blue glass." Full review

"Just a block from Harvard Square, the Charles has been the place for business and leisure travelers to Cambridge since it opened in 1985." Full review
Concierge
"The 294 business-meets-Americana rooms mix Wi-Fi with checkered Shaker quilts, and all were spruced up in 2006."
Insight Guides
"A touch of class on the edge of Harvard Square: rooms are appointed with commissioned artwork and high-tech amenities, and offer views of Harvard Square, Cambridge, or Boston."
Fodor's
"It used to be that the Charles was the place to stay in Cambridge, and while other luxury hotels have since arrived... this Harvard Square staple is standing strong." Full review

For a partial river or skyline view, ask for something above the 7th floor.
