Room Review

Hotel is a neat 125 year old hotel at Copely Square. Staff was over the top friendly and helpful. Room was nice and clean. Large pillows, not those little square ones hotels seem to be going to. Room was cold most of the time, no heat. Notified staff twice. Water was warm at best, most of the time no hot water.

Good hotel - bad wireless internet

I was in Boston for 2 days on business. The hotel is in a nice location near Copley Square. It was basic in most areas and room was comfortable and clean. The fitness room is tiny. I had a terrible experience with the wireless internet speed. It was excruciatingly slow and it was not my computer which worked fine at multiple other locations in town and since. The speed was worse than dial-up and took several minutes to load or save basic small files. If you plan on using the internet at this hotel, I would go elsewhere otherwise it is fine.

Best Value in Copley Square

We stayed here and found the hotel to be a small boutique hotel with very small, but comfortable rooms. Good location one block from Boylston which is the main shopping area and a short walk to Boston Common. Fenway Park is about a 30 minute walk.

great room, but no room service

Very nice people, but did miss having room service... daughter loved going to the Aquarium. Felt very close to Copley Square. Hard to find the place driving in, however!

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a very handy grocery store across the street in addition to all the retail shopping... good for fresh fruit.

Nice Place to stay

The room was nice and the location is right in the heart of shopping and nice restaurants. It is also a close cab ride to the theater district. Excellent location, nice staff and room was very comfortable and quieter than I thought it would be.

Perfect Location

The hotel puts your right in the middle of Back Bay at a relatively low cost. It's an easy walk to the T, the Pru, Copley Center and Newbury St. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The only drawback is $45 a day parking (valet).
