HYATT house Boston/Waltham

best value near Boston

bedroom, and living area/kitchen were very clean and updated. Good wifi. Excellent bedding and towels. Convenient bathroom area with double sinks outside, then tub and toilet in separate room. We stayed late fall, but there is a nice clean outdoor pool w patio area that although this is a chain hotel verges on quaint. Also a small workout room w decent equipment. We have stayed before in Hyatt Place, which have a feng shui suite kind of design w wet bar, but without a kitchen area..more like Embassy Suites arrangement. This is our first stay at a Hyatt Place, but in contrast, it is really like a mini executive long term apartment feel, which we really liked! Very convenient and well-designed kitchenette, which had a complete set of dishes, pots/pans, dishwaster, microwave, full refrigerator all in a small space that felt spacious, very functional and also with 2-stool counter. We only stayed one night, but could see that the kitchen and living room couch area were very livable if you were staying longer, complete with full ironing board stashed in an extra storage closet. Didn't use the pull-out couch, but loved the sectional design, with ottoman, and separate long section. Having tvs in both living area and bedroom was nice too. We are going to check and see where other Hyatt House locations are, and try to stay when we travel!

Taj Boston

Great front desk staff, amenities and rooms. Their concierge staff was lacking and failed to provide advertised complementary services after several calls over several hours. Other than that, it is a pretty nice hotel.
