Very quiet despite facing the street. Quiet and well adjusted air con.

great location. Parking was expensive though. Also was not advised that housekeeping was on demand only.

Location to the T. New. Staff very helpful Rained and he staff had hotel umbrellas. Maps were a valuable.

The location was good, as the T is only a block away. The room was quiet and very clean.

The rooms are very very very small. I'm an average sized person and I was having a hard time moving around. The room has 2 beds but there should really only be one full sized bed at the most. Between the 2 beds is about 16 inches and there is no room on the other side. Getting in and out of the shower is even hard. Overall waaaaaaaay too small. No fridge either.....

Lovely hotel and great staff, but I wasn't able to get a "flatter" pillow and the air conditioning didn't regulate evenly. So it was either too cold or too hot (mostly too hot) throughout the night.

The location is what led me to book the Porter Square Hotel. It was especially convenient because there is a small shopping area right across the street where I could pick up some nighttime snacks and also have my morning coffee.

This was a clean hotel. The room was a little small, but still clean and enough to move around in. Ice was located on the basement level. I didn't get a chance to eat inside, but there was a nice restaurant near the entrance of the hotel. The hotel's in a very convenient location as it is less than 5 minutes walking distance from the MTBA red line train and close to MTBA bus stops.

Near Porter square T stop, very new, interesting design

a very good location - a nice place for 1-2 nights

Small room but really plush. Super cozy bed. Great location. Happy with my stay.
