Awesome, Brand New Hotel

I was extremely satisfied. I arrived very early and the staff kindly allowed me to checked-in. The design of the hotel interior is very notable. There are four restaurants/bars in the hotel, and a mall just across the street, and also the green line is not far. Overall great experience.

Family Trip

Hotel met my expectations. Staff was very courteous, including restaurant wait staff. Room size could have been larger. View of Charles River from room was very nice. Food prices in the restaurants were a little pricey. The daily parking rates were too high. The room service feature was very helpful.

it is a nice hotel

so we stayed there just for one night.the location seems very nice,and there is a mall just on the other side of the street. The hotel looks pretty inside and the room is clean. Staff are very friendly and I am satisfied. However, there is one thing causes the imperfection. They over charged the deposit or whatever fee and I found that problem and called them back. They said they see the problem and then they charged the right amount again. So I suggest bring some extra money in case this happens to you

A pretty good place to stay

This place is really nice. The view is incredible if you get a room facing the river. The room is really nice and cozy. Location-wise, it's ok, but a bit too far from the convention center and the mall which is on the other side of the river.

Really nice hotel

I got this for extra low price and I have to say that it's a pretty nice hotel. Location is fantastic; and even 'non-river-view' room actually did have a view of the river (though I expect not as wide). One qualm is that the pool isn't open 24h :/
