anniversary night out

The hotel location was very convenient for our trip. We took the green line right to Arlington st and it was right there. We used public transportation while in boston and it could have been better. It was a great stay and thinking about another visit soon.

Perfect location for TD Garden

Stay was great. Rooms were not small as other reviews mentioned. It was very clean and the location was perfect. Parking in a nearby garage is cheaper than valet parking FYI.

Great location for a shopping weekend trip to Boston

This hotel is great if you like shopping as it is located pretty close to the Newbury shopping area in Boston. The rooms are OK. Not great, but this works fine if you don't intend to be in the room all the time. It is not convenience if you have kids.

Good Quality For the Price

Stayed at this hotel a few times. This time my room was at the end of the hall and it was very nice. It had a separate area for writing and a few chairs.
