I stayed here for one night on either end of a trip abroad that departed from Boston. I had a queen-sized room that came equipped with everything I needed -- mounted flat-screen TV, desk, docking alarm clock, decent-sized bathroom, and free wi-fi that was actually reliable. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the rainfall shower was lovely. Though the room... More

My boyfriend and I just got back from a weekend getaway to the Ames.... This was our second time staying there and decided to upgrade our room to make our stay more special. The first night there, our neighbor decided to throw a party at 3am. It literally sounded like the man was in bed with us. I called downstairs... More

As avid RVers, we don't often stay at hotels but when I do, I always look for something eclectic that stands out from the cookie cutter major hotel type of room and the Ames Boston Hotel did not disappoint. We stayed there overnight for a jaunt into Boston for my birthday and it was awesome! Not only is the hotel... More

The location is good, the bed was very comfortable and the staff was friendly enough but... The comments about the noise and vibration from the "T" are accurate. Public transit was closed due to the winter storm when I arrived in Boston so no problem when I got to the hotel or that night, but early the next morning the... More

Firts of all like the title says the location si great.The building used to be one of the tallest in Boston. Since it was built in the late 1800's there is alot of charm to this hotel like the beautiful marble ans iron staircase. We had the one bedroom suite wich was super spacious with amazing arched windows.The staff was... More

We spent the weekend at the Ames for a family wedding. We stayed Friday and Saturday night. Check-in was fast and easy and the valet service was expensive, but well worth the fee. The room had a fantastic view (15th floor), and the bed was very comfortable. The concierge (Charles) was very helpful with restaurant and bar recommendations in the... More

This was a great hotel in the northern area of Boston. Hotwire "chose" it for me at an excellent price. Easy subway ride from the airport with the station across the street! Close to many attractions. We had room on the top floor with incredible views of the sunset and city. Surprised there wasn't a coffee machine in the room... More

The location of this hotel was fabulous, right in the heart of Boston. I booked it through Hotwire and was Very pleasantly surprised. I called to request a double bed room and needed to pay an additional amount for that but with two people and an infant felt it was necessary. The room was beautiful, plenty of space. They had...

Reserved a room at the Ames Hotel through Hotwire, and not knowing anything about the hotel, I was very pleased with the website outlining it's history and renovations. The rooms were smaller than most, but perfect for our brief stay with vaulted ceilings, making the space feel much larger. The historic qualities of the building were outstanding, and mixed with...

Thank you so much for the wonderful review, we really appreciate it. We're sorry you found your room small, but that may be because the rooms hotwire reserves at our hotel are our Standard Queens which are physically the smallest rooms in the hotel.
