Great, walkable location and quiet despite the large parties at the hotel at the same time. A lot of parking spaces blocked off by cones and overflow parking is a block away. Ice bucket in room but could not locate an ice machine and no fridge in room. One of the front desk staff was a bit condescending when I asked a question about an event nearby and one of the bartenders at the bar ignored me while I sat there for several minutes. Decent place but nothing fancy. You definitely pay for location.

We arrived at the hotel late and were looking forward to getting a little room service but couldn’t get an answer. We went down to the Regatta Pub and despite being closed they accommodated our request for some chowder. It was delicious and just what we needed. The bartender was kind and gracious, despite the late hour.

I arrived in town much earlier than expected. Dolly at the front desk was not only very pleasant, but possibly the most professional hotel person I have ever encountered. She was able to get me an early check-in and my stay could not have been better!

The room heating/ac unit was as loud as a leaf blower - I basically passed out from exhaustion listening to it rather than falling asleep. The TV was unplugged for some reason when we arrived, requiring me to climb behind the dresser to reach the outlet. The wifi did not work. Front desk was unable to make change for me to leave a tip for housekeeping I was expecting so much more from a property with such a great reputation.

Great and reasonably priced place to stay. It is an older hotel so the water pressure in the shower wasn’t very strong, the windows were a bit drafty, and some wallpaper was peeling off a bit from the walls, but otherwise was lovely and comfortable. The staff were very polite and helpful. They provide water bottles, at no charge, to their guests. I didn’t see a recycling station for them, though I suppose I could have asked. Overall it was a nice place to stay and I recommend it.

Great location. Staff was nice.

The location was absolutely perfect and the bed was extremely comfortable. The staff was excellent and the food was delicious in the restaurant downstairs. Everything was very clean too! It is a little pricey but considering it’s right next to the wharf, it was worth it.

It started off rocky because the reservation from Orbitz was not in the computer when we arrived and it took an hour to sort out and get us a room. Then they put us in a very noisy room right above the restaurant (226). I asked to move and they upgraded us and put us in VERY quiet room and gave us breakfast vouchers and a plate of cookies so the second half of our stay was great.

Very nice.

Great location and easy to access the city. Walls were a bit thin tho.

This is wonderfully located and everyone is very pleasant, the pool is also excellent.

Great location to walk to all the attractions. We loved the Peabody-Essex museum and spent an amazing evening at Hamilton Hall at a Mozart string quintet! Even in off season This was a great lication!
