Value in Boston

Good value, old hotel but clean. Room was comfortable, bath small and dated but functional. Make sure you check out beautiful old banquet rooms and ballroom.

convenient location

The location is perfect, in the Back Bay, Boylston St and Newbury St just footsteps away. The room was tiny and the hotel was noisy at night. The outside of the building was under construction so that took away from the aesthetics.

Boston before Cruise

Wonderful hotel! Wish we had stayed a couple more days before heading on our cruise! A lot of nearby construction, but I was okay with accessibility to hotel entrances.

Great Location

This hotel is in a great location. Very near the train entrance and close to the city, which I loved. The room was pretty clean, but they kept trying to clean our room at 9:30 am in the morning. I did not appreciate that. The bathroom is kind of too tiny to maneuver in, but the beds were comfy. Honestly, we chose for the location, which was great so I am happy.

Pay for Internet Access

This is a pricey hotel, and yet you have to pay $12.50 a day for internet access! The continental breakfast is $18.00, and a hot one will set you back $25.00. So come prepared to eat at the Panera down the street. While there, access the internet free of charge. That said, the staff was very helpful and friendly, except the doorman who directed me to the valet parking ($48 a day). He seemed to look down on my humble Forester. Granted, it was covered with country dirt and the license plate gave me away as a yokel, but still.... Although the location is great, I would not stay here again. Too many extra charges.
