3 of us stayed here recently in a Standard King Deluxe Suite. It was a corner suite and had floor-to-ceiling windows along the length of the apartment. The living area was decorated in what I'd describe as a modern sixties style - minimalist, with lots of white. We all thought it was gorgeous, spacious and light-filled. The bed was extremely...

Was disappointed in the quality and upkeep of the rooms. We tried to get an alternate room but it appeared to be of the same nature. It is definitely not all in the details at the Ames. The hallways were quite dark as well which is generally not a good sign either. The staff however was friendly and helpful.

I stayed here for a weekend and I wanted to take a shower after I had checked in. I noticed small black hairs in the shower and around the sink area. I personally went to the concierge and notified them about what I had encountered. They apologized and said they will fix it immidiately. Unfortunately, I arrived to the room... More

Great trendy rooms.. friendly staff! A boutique hotel with the works! The beds were very comfortable and rooms were spacious. Would stay here again. Close to the Subway. Had breakfast in their neighboring restaurant which was just ok in terms of what they offered.

The good is it's in a prime location, right by Faneuil Hall, in a historical building (albeit hard to notice that from the street and they've erased any sense of history on the inside). Also good: the staff tries genuinely hard to please and be appreciative. On the other hand, they aspire to a level of quality that they don't... More

My husband and I were very satisfied with the Ames and can recommend it. The old, exterior architecture is beautiful contrasted with a starkly serene and modern interior although a bit cold for my taste (charcoal gray everywhere). You could not expect a better location as a tourist...all the important sites are within easy walking distance. All in all a... More

A friend and I stayed here for 3 nights. The location is spot on, close to most of the sights and literally seconds from the subway. The exterior of the building is great, lots of detail. The interior leaves something to be desired. The ceilings in the lobby are great, but the bar and reception area is rather plain. The... More

Great location - near Faneuil Hall and an easy walk to the Common, North End, etc. We chose a deluxe suite and it a great size for us plus our little one. It was a good value for a suite in Boston. 12th floor corner suite was high enough to have a little water view, in addition to the old... More

We stayed here 2-3 times for weekend trips, and haven't been disappointed once. Rooms are comfortable, quiet, well cared for. The staff is always friendly. It's nice to stop downstairs for a drink and app, before walking around to everything that is close by. Breakfast was very good as well. Will stay there again.
