Not so hot but good location

The chief advantage to this place is it's about a block from Boston Common and several colleges. Also a Ben and Jerry's and Au Bon Pain right next door. [$25 for breakfast buffet???? No thanks.] Room was slightly smaller than normal, with no desk or work space, teeny not-so-clean bathroom, only one wastebasket in the whole space [none in the bathroom] and neither the bathroom fan nor the room air fan controls worked. Bedding was good and comfortable [white cotton, which is my benchmark -- no busy prints to hide the stains]. It was okay and convenient for our one night but I wouldn't stay there again.

Great Location, Value and Comfort

I had been wary of staying here for a long time because I believed it was an old dame who had seen better days and was worn at the seams. NOT TRUE! The hotel has been nicely updated, rooms are comfortable, great on sight restaurants (including McCormack and Schmick) and the location is superb. Added to that, they often have rooms available for less that $120. There's no place else that comes close to matching that value and additionally the rooms are also comfortable. This is no budget hotel, it's a full on 4 star hotel that I will from now on call my home away from home while in Boston.

If it was half the price, it would be worth it

To start at the beginning, the lobby is beautiful. And completely misleading. If you expect the rooms to be as posh and new as the lobby, you will be greatly disappointed (as I was). The rooms are tiny. But it isn't just that; they are poorly designed. The TV is next to the bed making it awkward to watch, the bathroom has the light switch out side of the room, just little things like that. Everything was old, including the mismatched tiles and the radiator heat. There isn't free wi-fi, which for the price I was paying, is absurd. But by far the worst part was the noise! I could hear all of Boston just outside my window (which also let in all the cold air). I didn't sleep well at all. But hey, at least it was in a good location

Take a Duck Tour! It was a ton of fun and I got to see a lot of the city. It was much better than walking all over the place. I learned a lot too and the guide was funny.

Everything about the hotel was great, save the fact that there was no complementary wifi in the rooms. However, the room was great and so was the location and staff.
