For Labor Day weekend, my husband and I visited family in Back Bay but wanted to stay at a smallish, fairly hip hotel in another part of town. Ames caught our eye, and we had a very enjoyable stay. What jumped out at us on their website was the sleek, uncluttered room style. It's not too out-there modern where most... More

I stayed at the Ames Hotel recently when I was in town for a business trip. The place I normally stay was sold out and I opted for the Ames. A beautiful, charming hotel in Boston with beautiful rooms. The service was excellent especially the person (man) that helped me with the Cab in the morning! I also ate room... More

So we really like staying in a boutique hotel. This hotel is close to everything. The trolleys are right outseide your door and the frredom walk is as well. The harbor is just a few blocks down. I heard the noise was a problem, but we stayed on the 9th floor with a beautful view of Court Street and the... More

The hotel was nice to look at... Trendy decorations and clean, sleek lines all around. The room was comfortable....except the bathroom. The shower was surrounded by glass, which created a see-through bathroom experience. Yes, the full bathroom, including the toilet could be seen from the bed. There was a sheer curtain that provided no modesty, and was controlled from the... More

Thank you so much for staying with us. We're sorry you didn't enjoy our "sexy showers", but we do have rooms without them available upon request. We hope we're better able to accommodate you on your next stay! More

When we booked this hotel for a business presentation, I was told it had a great location, wow, what an understatement. The Ames basically touches the Grand Hall, Fennel Hall, and is within super easy walking distance to several other quintessential Boston sites. The rooms are an upbeat eclectic mix of history and modern technology with large spacious showers and... More

The location of this hotel couldn't be better. On arrival be prepared to met be with the upmost friendly, helpful service. The hotel is modern and minimal in utilitarian way, guest friendly lobby and a lively bar meet you on entry and when you open up your room expect your luggage to already have arrived. The deluxe king room is... More

I was pleasantly surprised from the moment I stepped in. The staff was extremely professional, helpful and friendly from the very beginning to the last good-bye. The hotel is in a great location, just steps from many of Boston´s attractions and the T. Excellent places to dine and shop within minutes. Our room was big, very comfortable with great amenities....

The hotel is nice, very clean and friendly service. Restaurant is not up to a 4 or 5 stars. The breakfast was poor in terms of value for money (ex. No scrambled eggs or any worm food). The biggest inconvenient was that we took a room "double double deluxe" to have two children sharing room with us and the room... More

Thank you so much for staying with, we appreciate it. We're sorry you thought our all you can eat continental breakfast was poor in terms of value, but we're always trying to tweak it to improve it. Our Deluxe Double rooms contain two double sized beds & are about 50 square feet larger than our smaller Superior Doubles. The size... More

We recently went to Boston and the rooms were very hard to find. We ended up with a reservation at the Ames Hotel. It was a great location, clean and quiet. We had a spacious room at the end of the hallway with no neighboring rooms so it was very private. I would definitely stay here again.
