Great experience!

The service was exceptional - delightful stay! The room was so comfortable and the view was great. Maid service hospitality was also exceptional. The only suggestion I would make is that the WIFI service be provided to guests free of charge - not just in the lobby area. It was time-consuming and frustrating to learn that the WIFI service had to be paid for by the day. Other than that, I have no complaints. Having a Starbucks at the hotel was also great!

Relaxing stay and great location

We found a great deal for two rooms at this hotel which isn't easy to do in Boston. The rooms are comfortable, however the bathrooms are small. My only complaints are you have to pay for wifi which is ridiculous and parking was $42!!!!!

The location is excellent, next to the Transit station. Making it very easy to get around Boston and to see the Historic sites all over the city!

We came down from NH to see a show at Boston Opera House and it worked out perfectly to stay here for the night. Staff was exceptionally friendly, it set the tone for a really nice getaway.

Good Expirience

Except the fee for internet in your room and the empty refrigerator every thing was good. The price was reasonable, it also has a fitness center and pool. The place is close to subway station there you can go wherever around.
