Across from the Old State House, this hotel puts you right in the heart of things. We walked or rode the T everywhere. The rooms are sleek, sexy and fun. The staff is very helpful. You do have to order ice but they are very prompt. Filling the empty restaurant space would be a plus. There are, however, so many... More

I stayed at the Ames for one night only, but it was a great stay. The staff was friendly, the location was superb, and the rooms were very modern, and clean. The rooms are a bit on the smaller side, but our view, from the floor to ceiling window was great. Loved the shower too.

Took a weekend trip to Boston for our daughter's track meet. We wanted to stay close to Quincy Market- so this hotel was perfect for walking to the shops and restaurants. Since it was the beginning of March, it was still cold, but there was no snow around, so we were still able to enjoy walking around the historic area... More

Great historic boutique hotel. Close to historic Boston and North Boston (great Italian area with lots of places to eat) AND the subway station (only three stops from the airport). Staff was extremely helpful. The only small thing was that there wasn't a lot of hot water in the mornings…

Really nice hotel with friendly staff and very comfortable rooms. I stayed for 4 nights on business in March. The let down is that they only serve breakfast and if I'm honest it's overpriced for what it is, however there are plenty of other food options right on your doorstep! Overall - a great hotel.

We're sorry about the confusion in regards to breakfast you experienced during your stay. Breakfast is included with some of our corporate rates & if it is our staff has been instructed to inform our guests & give them breakfast vouchers. It appears that this didn't happen upon your arrival & we are incredibly sorry about that. We hope to... More

We recently stayed at the Ames Boston Hotel. Absolutely wonderful. The staff was wonderful. Ask, and you received. But, didn't need to ask, because they provided. Walk out the front door, and they were more than speedy in hailing a cab. The room was cleaned. Everything just went perfect. They had placed a coffeemaker in my room, prior to my... More

LOVED IT!!! Everything about the room, bed, decor, really cool glass shower, the minimalistic style was perfect for my tastes. Location to the Red Line just steps from the front door. And the room was so very clean too. Everything was new and shinny. I stayed in room 805. I could see the Old State House from my window and... More
