Good location, price affordable, clean and quiet, free internet.
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.
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.
Hotel was a little dated and room was not the cleanest.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Very difficult to get luggage from the parking to the hotel. All stairs and no help when we arrived!
Value, value, value. Free use of the business center and continental breakfast was wonderful.
Friendliness of staff, convenience of location, adequate complimentary breakfast
Not enough seating/tables at breakfast, room could do with fresh decor
