Great location, cramped and small.

Would recommend Sat, Nov 21, 2015
After arriving I was taken back by how nice the lobby was and the fantastic location! The room was disappointingly small and the desks and future in the room was all scratched up or failing apart. I was told my room would have a city view and all I actually saw was a nice brick wall out my window. The room also had a strange odor and housekeeping came before we were even scheduled to check out.

vacation with my daughter

Would recommend Fri, Oct 23, 2015
The trip was great. The hotel needs some work in the rooms. The carpet was frayed in spots and there was one spot on the floor where I think part of the flooring was missing as you could feel it when you stepped. The WiFI would frequently cut out. However, the bed was very comfortable as was the heat system. Location was great, near the T and near the on off Trolly. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I thought it was a bit expensive for Sat. night but it's Boston and I guess they can get those prices. The other days were reasonable but an extra $150 for Sat. seemed a bit high.

Unfortunate trip

Would recommend Sun, Oct 4, 2015
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take full advantage of this trip. We weren't able to spend the night since there was a huge snowstorm coming our way, so we ended up driving back home early to beat the worst of it. What we saw of the hotel was nice enough. We should have known, being as old a hotel as it is, not to expect the cookie-cutter modern style that you expect with chains. Our two-bed room had separate rooms for each bed, which was very different. Might be great for some people, but it wasn't what we were expecting. It was definitely spacious though, and clean. The view of the city was great!

Quick get away

Would recommend Wed, Sep 16, 2015
Overall my experience at the Hotel was good and I loved the location. however I was given 2 dinner vouchers and was told I would receive continental breakfast. Well I got the dinner vouchers but not the breakfast and I was very disappointed and they was having issues in the business center and I couldn't print my boarding pass. Was able to go to the Tea Party Muesem.

This hotel is within walking distance of Fenway Park and the T line which can take you anywhere else in the city. The restaurants are all within walking distance too. Rooms are large suites so large two king beds and bath with large living room and sleeper sofa. Restaurant in area lobby is fantastic.
