I must say I am very disappointed to stay at Ames hotel. While the location is great, less than 10 minutes from the Boston Airport and the tube ( State station) is just across street. this designer hotel is more style over function. There is no coffee machine or tea kettle in the room which is extremely inconvenient. There is... More

I stayed at the Ames for one night in September. It is in a great location and the staff was very friendly from the valet to the front desk. The hotel was a little too dark for my liking and the room I was in was rather small, but it is a boutique hotel, so I guess that comes with... More

I stayed here last week on a business trip and it is a very nice hotel. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and light, and are well equipped. I only have one small complaint.....the breakfast isn't great. Its a limited cold buffet - and I am not a fan of stale hard bagels. I would... More

Great location - beautiful rooms. The best shower I have ever been in at a hotel. The staff was excellent. I highly recommend this hotel for corporate or vacation travelers. I am a travel agent and this is one of the best hotels I have stayed at! You can't beat the location - never took a cab. Lots of shopping... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed in the "superior king room" and it was amazing to say the least. We stayed in room 303 which has the big beautiful curved windows with an awesome view. The service was friendly and so accommodating. We went out to dinner and when we got back, there were rose petals leading from the entrance... More

The location of the Ames Boston Hotel is extremely convenient for those that want to be close to the Boston Common. This hotel is in walking distance of the Boston Common, TD Garden, Quincy Market and more. The hotel itself has a modern feel and nice amenities. The room I stayed in had a well stocked mini bar and Alton... More

Great location, most of places you'll like to visit at walking distance (and red metro station very close for the rest). Friendly and helpful stuff that helps in enjoying your visit to Boston. Nice modern rooms at a end-nineting century building, clean and confortable; some people may find them a bit small -we think it was enough-.

We stayed in the Ames for three nights in September arriving from New York. It was pretty expensive per night, but I think Boston overall is not a place to scrimp on your hotel - there seems to be really nice hotels in good locations and then the rest which are 'meh'. It was a brilliant hotel in a great... More

Spent 3 nights at the hotel. The location is an excellent base to explore the city. The room was spacious and clean and a nice bathroom. Very comfy bed. Staff were pretty helpful. Although it seem all hotels in Boston are pricey, the location of the Ames puts you in the midst of the city.
