Wonderful location

The hotel itself was mediocre but the location definitely makes up for what it lacks in other departments. Located in the heart of Back Bay, it was easy to access the T line and restaurants and shops. Overall a good value!

Horrible Experience

Horrible experience. I went there for peace and quiet and I got none of that - any of the nights I stayed. There was a convention with Kids there the entire weekend and multiple people had to contact security and nothing was done about it. The first night I was there the running in the hallways and screaming went until 4:30am. They provided no help tp me because I "purchased these tickets through a third party". One person even went as far as to tell me I got the room at a subtacially discounted price. So that is why I had to deal with loud abnoxious children, because the room was less than usual?? I will never stay there again no matter what the price.

Charmer by the park

What a nice place, what a great location. This is an older hotel and I was charmed by the retro feel of the place. My room wasn't large, but it had everything I needed and was nice and clean. But the real value here is the location: steps from the Boston Common and easy walking distance to everything.

Excellent hotel with very freindly and curteous staff.

We were very pleased with this hotel. The room was very comfortable, spacious and clean and they provided excellent and very friendly customer service. A small problem we encountered was taken care of immediately making sure that our comfort was not compromised. We highly recommend this hotel.

Precious and comfortable rooms!

I had a great experience and the staff was very accommodating. You have to pay for parking, but can valet or park on your own (parking is approx $35/day for self-parking). The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are adorable, clean, and comfortable.

For great thai food, try Montien (on Stuart). I highly recommend the seaweed salad! For an interesting experience, try Vapiano on the corner of Stuart and Charles. Nice pasta made to order. Fresh herbs literally growing at your table.
