The Ames Boston Hotel was an absolute pleasure to stay at. On top of the reasonable price, guests are provided with all of the amenities one could possibly ask for. The hotel is immaculate - decor is clean, floors are clean, and the rooms are clean. There was not one moment where I could pinpoint any filth or dirt, or... More

Stayed at the Ames for an overnight business trip. As everyone else had said, it's a great, central location in downtown Boston. Easy to get to and from most Boston sites and well situated. It's a small, boutique hotel with a modern and simple vibe. Not cushy but rather spartan and simply appointed with pops of design and wit here... More

I had to stay over a night in Boston while on a business trip. The Ames was easy to find and in the heart of downtown, right next-door to the State-Building complex. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was fascinating, being entirely enclosed in glass and had a fantastic shower with a rain-style head. Everything was well-appointed and well-designed...

We stayed overnight for a wedding of a coworker. I would come back in a heartbeat! Staff was wonderful, room was perfect and location was great! Great continental breakfast at a reasonable price. Great bartender! Very comfortable and European!

The location of the Ames Hotel is amazing. You can walk to nearly everything, and the Quincy Market is a short walk to pick up a meal. We had a great waterfront view. The hotel has the best workout facility I have seen on a smaller property. The front desk employees were always cheerful and helpful. While we were there,... More

I booked this hotel thorough their internet site, for my 2 kids and myself. When I did the booking deluxe room seemed okay for us. But as we arrived to our room there was no extra bed for my son. I talked personally to manager and he told me they gave me what I booked. And they ran out of... More

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. After following up, it appears you booked a Deluxe King for 1 adult & 2 children with no other requests until you checked in at 5:30p. Unfortunately, as we were completely sold out (the city of Boston was actually sold out for 25 miles on that Saturday night) & we were out... More

This was our first time in Boston. We didn't know where to stay. My son & his wife stayed at the Ames and recommended to us. Well, it exceeded our expectations. The staff was fabulous and very helpful. Dana, Angie & Taka were so kind and helpful to us during our stay. The hotel was located in walking distance of... More

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We'll pass along your comments about Dana, Taka, & Angela. We're sorry the noise from outside bothered you, but next time you're in town request a high floor & we'll try & get you as far away from the street as possible.

We were kind of put off by the mixed reviews but decided to spend two nights at the Ames because of the great location. It aspires to be a trendy hotel: hipper-than-thou clientele, stark uncomfortable lobby, modern room furniture, etc. The strangest surprise was the clear glass floor-to-ceiling wall that separated the bedroom from the bathroom. It provided an excellent... More

Thanks so much for staying with us. We're sorry about the issue you had with your in room refrigerator & we hope you brought it to our attention so we could have someone look at it.

This hotel was chosen by friends whom we were meeting for a few days of touring Boston. On arrival, we were impressed by the ambiance of the hotel (contemporary features in a stately building)and the helpfulness of the staff. Our room on the fifth floor was high enough to miss most of the traffic and subway noise - ambulance sirens... More

As others have raved, the location of the Ames cannot be beat. Easy walk to the major historical and tourist sites. Super convenient to the airport via the T Blue Line, with a stop less than a block away. My king room in this historic building was beautiful with high ceilings, large arch window, neutral color palate, and high-end, contemporary... More
