Reminicent of European rooms

Despite the construction taking place on the exterior, the interior public spaces are lovely. The staff and website were useful for finding nearby coffee and meals. The location is incredibly easy to access off of the Commons, and is a straight one mile walk from South Station. The room itself was pretty small-- a few feet of floor space around a comfortable bed. But unlike European hotels, the bathroom was spacious and private. There was no closet, but it did have a tall wardrobe to hang things. There was no fridge, but it did have an easy-to-reach power strip to recharge electronics. Overall, I would absolutely stay here again if I found the same bargain online ($165/night), but would probably keep searching if the price went much higher than that.

Convention stay

This hotel was conveniently located for the various venues of my convention. Unbeknownst to me in booking this hotel is the fact that parts are currently undergoing much needed renovation. The location certainly has a prestigious history, however that prestige needs further work.

The staff and service was quite good. The Concierge, and the staff at the front desk provided lots of help. And, the tech crew helped with some minor problems with my computer.

Best value in the area - Terrible shower conditions

I had the chance of staying in 2 different rooms. The first was standard full-size bed with a full size tub in the shower. The second was a queen-sized bed with THE SMALLEST SHOWER. Both rooms were tight which is not a major problem since they are clean and we spent the entire day out of the hotel. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The location is walking distance to most if not all (subjective term). Cons: You have to pay separately for valet parking, no self parking or free parking available came out to close to $50 per night. Pay for wifi in your room big turn off. Long lines for the elevator during rush hour.

Nice stay

Didn't need to stay in the room much so was okay with areas that we're lacking. Very nice for an older hotel however the a/c was stuck at 80 unable to change temp &/or turn off. No free wifi in room. And construction was a little disturbing but otherwise was a nice stay in a great central location. Would likely stay there again.
