Night before early flight

The hotel was fine, but there are better places to stay in Boston. Location is good, but hotel and rooms are outdated.

One night stay

Hotel was average to below average. Decor was bad, hallways were dirty - looked like they hadnt been vacuumed in a while. Gave me doubts about the room. Room was fine, smoke detector kept flashing (brightly) all night. Glad I was only there for ~6hrs before my flight. There are many better choices in Boston for the same or a little more money.

Good find in a great part of Boston!

Our room was quiet, very clean and fit our purpose. It was small, but we weren't there that much during the day. The bathroom was small, but very clean and the shower was great! The air conditioner didn't work when we first arrived, but once we told maintenance it was fixed soon after. The staff could not have been more helpful. The location is superb - two blocks from Copley Square & metro and a half block from Amtrak and the Commuter Rail Line. AND "Flour" (great restaurant) was across the street!

"Flour" - a pick-up/eat-in bakery and restaurant was just across the street a bit. They had great food! The lines were long, but moved fast! They supplied complimentary ice water while you wait - perfect on our hot day in September!

Nice, clean boutique hotel in fantastic location. I parked my car next door upon arrival and walked or took public transportation until departure 3 days later. Wonderful staff was accommodating and friendly at all times.

Hotel is ok, great location, can't beat the price. Might get loud during night though as they also offer long term rooms.
