The Ames hotel was conveniently located to my office and a quick walk from South Bay Station. Uber modern feel in the lobby and attached bar. The room was terrific 14th floor, adjoining bathroom with a glass wall so you could see the bedroom/tv, fully stocked mini-bar. The downside was at 5am I was awoken by what I can imagine... More

I stayed here for Business Travel for a few days in early December. The location is great for airport access, and a short walk to the T if you need to explore further. The Hotel it's self has its charm, i had one of the loft suites which was airy and spacious and plenty of room to work/relax in the... More

Only 14 minutes from the airport in the middle of the historic district of Boston, you can get anywhere from here easily! Near a subway (T) line (State St), hop and a jump from the airport..and walking distance to all sorts of sites (if it is not pouring down rain)! The lobby is small, front desk staff nice and quick...

My wife and I stayed here over the weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our experience! We booked a deluxe suite which overlooked the clock tower. The room itself was a great size with a separate seating area. The location for us was perfect, 2 mins from Faneuil Square and 5 mins from TD Garden. To top it all off the Celtics... More

A historic building in a great location with an excellent,friendly staff. We arrived on a very early flight for a 4 day stay and they accommodated us quickly..Rooms are reasonable size,clean and well equipped. Easy walking distance to most downtown activities. For longer trips the "T" is across the street. Well worth a stay if you are going to Boston

Wonderful place with very friendly service. Stylish, quiet yet in the center and very functional. The building is one of the oldest skyscrapers in Boston. Many of the hotspots to see in Boston are in walking distance and the bike rental is just around the corner. In the bar they have live music and nice coctails. Even breakfast is available... More

On our way to Barcelona, we stayed here one Saturday night and could not get a wink of sleep! We could hear noises & conversations (!) from the crowds in the street, sirens from emergency vehicles, car traffic all night into the morning hours, etc. We tried to rationalize that we had a street-facing room, but then we could hear...
