Really not impressed

Bought a queen room for two nights, they say they are out and want to upgrade me to a king for free. Well of course right? Well dont let them cause they will give you a handicapped room on a floor that seems to.be reserved for their lowerclass customers. Cable tv consisted of 8 news channels, and a horrible movie channel playing movies that couldnt even make it to a redbox. And nothing was complimentary. No breakfast, the tea thing they advertise never happened, and overall not what I was expecting for the price. Would have been better off at a holiday inn. The loby and the location are the only good points this place got.

cold!

A little down at heel, this one. Windows that look into the other rooms across the way meant keeping the blinds down all the time. It was a cold week in Boston and the heating in the hotel wasn't up to the task. More importantly, I was part of a large conference centre group, and I think everyone showered at the same time of day -- and I awoke one morning to a *cold shower*!! I'm afraid the absence of hot water at 7 am in a hotel in the middle of winter is a dealbreaker. The staff were friendly enough, but were not willing to offer me any refund for the inconvenience. Also, note that wireless internet is approximately $13/day.

Be careful.!!

We just recently stayed there 2/14/12. First off, trying to locate parking. parked in the front and was told i would have to find parking. Once inside at the reception counter. I asked the lady if my room came with breakfast or parking. She laughed and said you booked with a 3rd party ) you just get the room . Once inside , we could not lower the heat. We then come home at midnight and were told valet parking was $46.00 or park in the garage for a great rate of $31. After looking at what we paid. The same rate booked with the hotel would have included parking Please stay away if you are not rich. Bad customer service. Never again!!

Too small

The room was too small for my wife and me and neither of us are big. It's an old hotel that was never updated, old sink, shower, layers of peeling paint.

Definitely not a 3 or 4 star establishment

I think this hotel's only marketability is it's name and location. There were holes in the walls, electrical outlets half way out of the walls, impractical toilets, TONS of air conditioning problems. The staff are never suprised with the problems that crop up.

A sad old hotel

Picked this hotel last minute based on its central location. The check in process took 20 minutes - not that we waited in line 20 minutes - actually checking us in took 20 minutes. They couldn't find the reservation even though I had the confirmation number and showed them my confirmation email. The clerk left and went into some mysterious back room for 10 minutes while the line behind us grew full of annoyed travelers. Eventually we got checked in a king room on the 11th floor. The halls smelled of cigarette smoke. The room was clean so there's a plus for them. The walls are paper thin - a woman in the room next to us sneezed and it sounded like she was in our closet! Bathroom is circa 1950's. Tiny, tiny toilet. Next time I would choose another hotel for sure. Nothing special here.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

Storeyville - great night spot if you are 20 and like to wear shorts and sneakers and hang out in a black basement for your big night out on the town.

Not worthy

Besides magnificent lobby & great location, highly overpriced. Expect to pay $46/day for valet parking. Room needs complete renovation. Just because it has a big flat screen TV, it does not cover the chipped paint , dirt, etc. Dissapointed :(
