Immaculate and Convenient

We were pleasantly surprised that the Hotel 140 was completely renovated and immaculately clean. The location was excellent - right across from Copley Plaza. The offering for breakfast was meager but adequate. It would have been nice to have access to coffee or tea during our stay. We will definitely go back and share the good news with family and friends.

A basic hotel in a fantastic location

I was a little wary at first because so many reviews were bad but I really liked it. It is true that it is not a luxury hotel and it does indeed have a dorm feel to it but the room was clean and everything was in working order. I really didn't need anything more than that. It was great to be a block and half off of Copley Square. Every place I need to go was in walking distance.

Great location, decent price

The lobby was better than I thought it would be. The rooms were very clean and nice, but quite small. No frills. Hotel is located is right next to the T and in the heart of activity; excellent location! Got a great price, so really, no compaints.

Some good things, some bad things

Great location, close to T subway and restaurants on Boylston St. 10 min. walk to Boston common and Newbury St. I didn't like that for breakfast you only get to choose two items, and the selection menu is wayyy limited. In the positive side, security is great, and the rooms are very nice.

Great Location

Its a mixed of hotel & local residents. Each have their own elevators (hotel are the upper floors). Great location (near Pru Center). Its a converted YMCA that offers a great price for the Boston Area. My only issue were the beds which are only full size (not queen) which is very small by today's standards. You can upgrade to two beds like we did.

Took the daugther for a college tour trip......it was perfect for us and our kamakazi trip. Only thing missing was their breakfast nook to get us on the road. Closed down for some reason.
