Great weekend trip!

Upon arriving at the hotel were were two hours early for check in. However, Portia at the front desk helped check in early with no trouble which was a blessing after experiencing a 4 hour delay at the airport earlier on in the day. The amenities were great and my favorite part of the hotel was the indoor gymnasium with pool, basketball court, rock climbing wall, ping pong table , and more. The rooms were very clean and the beds were as comfortable as could be. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Holiday Inn Bunker Hill

Very good experience. Staff great and attentive. Location a little out of way, but hotel had a shuttle bus that would transport for free within a 3 mile radius. Used it several times and it came within minutes of calling. I would highly recommend this hotel and would recommend to friends who wanted to stay on north end

OK but not great

Location is OK, 15min form downtown. I came for a weekend stay to visit some friends, the staff are great. The 1st room was facing the highway very noisy and there was a constant loud beeping sound coming from outside the window. They changed rooms for us but it was smaller, not an issue. They do have parking, they do not offer breakfast, just morning coffee.

Lesson learned booking through...

...this website (and why can't I use their name?!). Overall was completely as expected, and under normal circumstances, everything I'm sure would have been fine So I can't blame Holiday Inn for the prices, I booked in Boston during Game 1 of the World Series (though I was there for work), but paying $300 this hotel... well, you know. My biggest "lesson learned" was that because the transaction was processed through this website, I was unable to to negotiate once I decided to change my two day stay to a one day. Granted this was last minute on my part and they explained that if I was a few days earlier they would have been able to work with me. However despite the fact that hotel could have easily resold the room, at higher price than I was paying, (did I mention it was the World Series, and Boston won Game 1? Game 2 was the following night) the manager couldn't work with me to arrange a refund. Ah well, lesson learned.

Better than expected

The hotel was less than .5mi from the Sullivan Station Orange line and that was important as the T was my sole source of transportation the entire time we were there. Bunker Hill Monument was only about a mile and we walked there, and from there we followed the Freedom Trail into Boston. It was perfect. The staff was friendly and really helpful. The hotel was quiet and the restaurant had pretty good food. We would definitely stay here again.

Somerville Holiday Inn

Need more people at the front desk. A line started to grow to check in as the one person working was away looking for a manager. Room was clean. People were friendly. Breakfast buffet was ordinary but passable. The best thing about the hotel for me was the two computers and printers in the lobby available for hotel guest use. I didn't have to drag along my laptop. The negative is the price. Just overpriced for what you get especially since check-in time is 4:00pm. A good part of the day is gone but you're paying for it.
