    Fabulous

    The staff was friendly. The hotel was very clean and the location was perfect, close to good shopping centers and beautiful old and new landmarks.

    We would like to suggest that at the moment of registration, the staff explain the hotel perks.

    It was a very basic hotel environment.

    Superb

    The room was comfortable, with a suitable bathroom. (No interesting view but we did not mind, as we were in the room only at night ). The location was excellent as it was on an important avenue and we could get any transport . There were restaurants, for different budgets, five minutes walk from there. Breakfast was really satisfactory.We enjoyed our stay. On top of that we had free internet.

    The location

    Hotel was a little dated and room was not the cleanest.

    Good

    I stayed at the hotel several times. It situated in historical center, it is close by attractions as well as by business district of Boston. Also it is relatively cheap for this area.

    The hotel room need renovation, especially bathrooms. It was much better 2-3 years ago when I stayed there.

    The location, the free internet access, the breakfast.

    Poor customer service when I complained about the noise during the night.

    Superb

    Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Free computer printing in the Business centre. Location in Back Bay close to two different T (subway) lines. Very quiet for a city centre hotel.

    Self serve breakfast on plastic plates was functional but lacked charm and did not encourage lingering. Three separate taxes added to the bill are mandatory and should be included in the quoted price.

    Good

    The location was central but nice and quiet in the evenings which was relaxing after days filled with sightseeing and shopping not to forget the proximity to various restaurants.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    The location of this hotel is excellent. You can walk to many sights and the mbta subway stop is nearby. The WiFi was free and had a strng signal. No real views in the rooms but it's still a good option for business or pleasure.

    The included breakfast was just ok and the seating was very limited.

  • 6.6
    Good

    we found the hotel to be very well located and the staff very courteous

    We found the standard of continental breakfast to be very poor . eg there was a very poor selection of bread, no cheese or jams and none of the minimal levels of cold meats or eggs that one would expect for acontinental breakfast

  • 8.8
    Superb

    the complimentary breakfast was very good, am a smoker so it was nice to be able to get a coffee at 630 am and go out for a smoke, relax and then go for breakfast. Even though you are downtown, which is fantastic, the hotel is nice and peaceful in the evenings.
