We were there for a Bachleorette party this past weekend. The rooms were spacious and fit 10 girls perfectly...even though our room did face a brick wall and there was almost no natural right. I would recommend to ask for one of the exterior rooms with big windows. What made this hotel is the staff, I have never had better... More

I very much enjoyed this location in the city. It was across the street from TD Garden. It had a few restaurants, convenience stores nearby. The hotel staff inside were nice, the guys standing at the doors who are supposed to help with bags and getting taxis, they weren't as helpful. The only problem I had with the room I... More

I travel to Boston about twice a month and over the last three years I have been staying at this Holiday Inn location every time. They are always welcoming and the rooms are perfect. The location is perfect for everything you would want to see since the North Station is right across the street. I stay at Hotels about two... More

I have stayed here twice now - the first time was about a year and half ago for two nights while traveling for business and I was really impressed. I had a huge room with big windows overlooking Causeway street and the Boston Garden area. This time we were originally put into room 304, and to be honest, it was... More

Staying in Boston because Dad is at Mass General. Hotel gave us a discount because we there at the hospital. 2nd floor room facing a street and bar was not that bad. The room was comfy and very clean and the building was beautiful with great atmosphere. Free Breakfast in the morning was good. I would stay again.

good location central for doentown Boston. Room only had skylight windows but it was clean and bed very comfortable with a decent shower. Breakfast was verygood and receptionists, breakfast staff, etc could not have been more hhelpful. Not cheap - but then nothing seems to be in Boston.......

We were very pleased with this hotel. It is in an historic building and in a great place for visiting the USS Constitution and Government buildings as well as TD Garden. Parking is valet, so be mindful of some challenges if you have an early flight the next morning. No big deal, but if the valet attendant is not yet... More

Took the train from Maine to Boston and this Hotel is in a great location, just right across the street from the station. Room was good size as was the bathroom. The Continental breakfast had all you could ask for. Darrell, the other front desk staff and the cleaning staff were exceptional - could not have asked for a better... More

Hotel was in a great location. Room a little dated and the Bathroom was very small . Lobby was just ok. Not a whole lot going on in hotel but because of location it really didn't need much. The price was a little high for the accommodations but not unreasonable.
