This is our first trip to Boston. I booked Element a week ago after I read a lot of review online. The hotal and the room surprised us. It's much better than what we expected. The lobby is modern, bright and clean. The room is big enough for one family, which has a kitchen. In the kitchen closet, you can... More

This is a fantastic hotel, ideal for families but also for single travelers or couples. It is very clean, modern, light and everyone working at the Element is very friendly and helpful. We've stayed at the hotel at least 6 times and each time we look forward going there and we are never ever disappointed. We love the kitchen facilities... More

The Element is a gem and it gets my coveted 5 star rating. It's not very easy to find modern, clean, comfortable and reasonable accommodations in the Boston area. Far too many Boston hotels know that they can happily gouge travelers with impunity, after all you _have_ to come to drop off your kid at BU or to see the... More

This hotel reminds me of a college dorm. Hallways are steaming hot and room never got to a comfortable temperature. The Mon-Thurs food/drink in the evening is disgusting. No wonder it is free. The guest laundry room is dirty with old washers and dryers. Margaret the evening front desk clerk is one of the rudest and nastiest woman, I watched... More

This is by far the best hotel I've stayed at in the Greater Boston Area. Went on a college visit for the wrong time (last week of August during the first weeks of school) and all hotels in downtown Boston were either booked full or were ridiculously expensive. Though it's a little far from Boston, it is a very good... More

This was the first time we stayed at an Element Hotel. We liked that it was away from the business section of town. The staff was friendly. The breakfasts, which were included were very good. A different hot egg special is served every day. (We were there three nights). It is easy to find it from the airport. There is... More

In my 2 week road trip to New England, I kept the cost of hotel lodgings to about $100 each night. This was by far the best value of all of the places I stayed. It offered appetizers and drinks that night. There was a BBQ outside for guests. The next morning we were treated to the best breakfast I... More

Picked this hotel because it was part of the Starwoods chain and in the vicinity of Boston. The location is great - less than 20 minutes drive to central Boston and if you like history and nature the minuteman national park is literally across the road. This is a green hotel - apparently that means the sheets will not be... More

Stayed here the night before and then the night after a big bike ride. Check in was fine, but single staffer had a lot to do with 3-4 people trying to check in. Given the stress it is understandable my Starwood Platinum level wasn't recognized. No biggie. She helped me with options for food in the area and I was... More

I had chosen this hotel for a business meeting. They indicated they had an executive suite that could support a meeting for up to six people. The suite was divided nicely into a meeting area/kitchenette and sleeping area. Unfortunately the "conference table" doubles as a dining table and barely sits 4 people comfortably which I guess is why there were... More
