Good value and good location

We had to leave the luggage cart at top of stairs about 4 doors from our room and carry all of the luggage the rest of the way down. There was also only a shower, no tub, which made it difficult to give a little one a bath. Close to T for easy access to North End - within walking distance to Beacon Hill, Newbury Street, Boston Common. Because this hotel is directly across the street from the New England Medical Center, you may hear sirens throughout the day and night.

Fantastic

Used this downtown hotel as our "home base" for touring Boston and its attractions. Found it to be excellant for this purpose. Close to entertainment, transportation to attractions, and a good value for a downtown hotel in a major city

A good deal.

This hotel was fine for the dollars spend. It was not spectacular, but for location, cleanliness, ease of movement, very close to the subway, it was well worth the dollars spent.

Great for Theater or Freedom Trail!

Our family of 4 stayed here on a weekend visit to Boston to see a play. It was the perfect location - a quick 5 minute walk to our theater or to Boston Common, with a subway stop right next door to get anywhere else. The room was clean and the fitness center at the Y was great!

Fantastic weekend getaway

My friend and I spent a weekend getaway in Boston. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The location was terrific for getting to all the hot spots and easy to find your way around. I will go to this hotel again in the future.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Go to the Fenway Tours. It is reasonably priced and it is a great way to learn the history of the park as well as the team. It was an hour long and you visted various areas within the park. I don't like baseball.However, my friend is a fan, and I enjoyed it just as much.

Good modern hotel, slightly off centre

This is a good modern, slightly impersonal hotel, very well located for theatre enthusiasts, as well as for the Chinese district of the town, but well out of the liveliest parts of the city and a fair walk from the harbour and the old historical part of town.

Not bad

The hotel was located just outside of Chinatown. Great location for what we had planned. The room was spaciuous and the bed very comfortable.
