Wonderful Hotel

It was great- clean, friendly staff.. the only thing I didn't like was the parking wasn't free. kind of expensive for what you get though. Really great location if you're going to TD Garden - real close to the "T"

Good value

I used to stay around the corner at a different hotel but decided to try this one. It's a good solid place. The room was a good size and it was in good shape. I had a problem with a window not closing but maintenance was there right away and fixed it. The breakfast buffet left a little to be desired and I would skip that the next time, but otherwise this place is a keeper.

This hotel is in the theatre district and they're all within a block or two of the hotel. So is Chinatown.

Was very pleased with our stay here!

Enjoyed our stay here. Was very clean and nice rooms! Nice view of the city at night. Floors were squeeky however. Didn't understand why the pool was closed for the holiday though? Like the Valet parking, was under the hotel...cars much safer then parked out by the road! Was a little pricey though when your not used to paying for parking $35.

Tirp to Boston

We toured the city. The hotel was right outside the subway station so that was great. They had free computers and printers so we found a parking voucher online and used it because parking was like 35$ a day at the hotel. I've learned that the problem is Boston wide. Great place to stay otherwise, clean and friendly staff

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.
