Convenient

Great location for a hotel. Minutes walk to travel attractions, tour info, bus/train & freeway. We were right next to the subway. The street & neighborhood was well lit & looked relatively safe for walking even late at night. Was a little nervous about the possibility of wailing sirens from ambulances arriving at hospital across the street but fortunately that didn't happen the 2-3 night over a major holiday weekend.

Au Bon Pain across the street may be a better choice than Starbucks in hotel building.

The staff was friendly and very helpful..

Doubletree' Hotel Boston-Downtown, BOSTON, MA Room was very nice, clean and newly renovated. Ample size with desk. Conveniently located in the business district. There are two business centers in the hotel with free internet. The rooms have internet for a fee. The staff was the standout. They were very friendly and very helpful. I will stay there again when in Boston.
