It was very disappointing for the amount of money we paid.

Excellent location for Brigham & Womens hospital - 1/2 mile. Hotel is quiet and in very good shape. Staff is excellent and efficient in getting car as valet. Very comfortable beds. Will come back. Thanks

Staff was super friendly. Hotel can use a good cleaning and some updating.

This small hotel has exactly what you need in Boston. Great size rooms, excellent service, valet parking and perfect location for medical centers and local colleges and universities.

Very convenient area. Nice staff. Close to all the main hospitals.

The Staff was friendly and professional. The room was comfortable and well appointed. The ability to control the air conditioning and heat in the room as needed was a big pluss.

We booked this hotel because it was close to Brookline, where we were having a family event. It was very nice and looked to be newly renovated, and tastefully so.

I was underwhelmed by this hotel. The room was tiny, there was a standard double bed, not at least a queen size. Probably 10 feet x 20 feet total space. Small bathroom with a shower that did not drain properly. Will never use this hotel again. Not recommended.

Room was clean - only issue is that there was no place to sit down besides the bed and one desk chair. Another chair would have been nice. Loved the complimentary 4 o'clock "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" snack food. Staff was very helpful.

Decent room, but cozy. Parking is limited on street, but valet is available and quick for $25/ night. I'd starry here again.

Rooms were very clean. Hotel was quiet. Complimentary tea and coffee in room.

Intimate little hotel with green out the window, a block from river, the T right there... 10' walk from lots of restaurants. For anyone who wants to experience calm at the end of a day in the city.

Great personnel, great location, attractive boutique hotel near several universities. Loved my stay.

The people who are staffing and managing this modest hotel are extraordinarily helpful. Dining is a bit of a challenge, since nothing is nearby - although the T rolls right by the front door. That is a blessing and a curse, because the rumbling of the above-ground subway line can be heard throughout the building all through the day and night. Avoid rooms at the basement level or fronting Huntington Ave.

I stayed here for a few nights while visiting HMS for work. The room was amazing--enormous, spectacularly clean, and incredibly comfortable. Public transportation is conveniently located right outside the door.

Needed a place to stay for two nights close to the Harvard Medical School. This hotel is about 1 mile away, which made walking an option (I also found a couple of nice breakfast/coffee shops along the way). It is very clean and well appointed. A nice touch: each evening I would find on the bed a couple of really good caramels from a local company. There was also a social with appetizers and desserts from local chefs one evening unfortunately, I was busy elsewhere and couldn't take advantage of it. If I have to go back to the area, this hotel would be my top choice.

This is the second time staying at this hotel and can't wait to come back. Very conveniently located to mass transport, groceries, good restaurants, places to run, you name it. Nice additional touches to make it seem like more than the typical chain, like a refrigerator/microwave, comfortable lounge with newspapers. Safe,easy for solo travel.

My wife and I went up to Boston for the night to visit a relative who lives in Jamaica Plain. We didn't want to sleep on their floor, so needed a nearby hotel. This place fit the bill perfectly. Very clean, very convenient (to JP). We checked in around 9:00 pm with no problem. Our room was right over S. Huntington, which gets some loud traffic and may be too loud for some, but we live in the city so the noise wasn't a problem for us. No bar/restaurant in the hotel or very nearby (15-20 minute walk) though there is a mini coffee shop in the lobby, as well as free drinking water and apples. I was conflicted over what to rate for Value--certainly not what you'd get for $200+ in most place (including several major cities), but for Boston it's actually pretty reasonable. I went with a 3, but I could see the argument for a 2 or a 4. All in all, perfectly acceptable hotel and I will likely stay again next time I visit this relative.

We were in for one night because we had some things to do in Boston. The hotel is lovely, and the staff are extremely helpful. We're locals, but I heard the staff give tourists the sort of useful (and accurate) information that I like to get when I'm in a new place. The value was great. We'd definitely stay there again.
