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...

Nestled in the heart of Boston, the Ames provides a chic, contemporary living space that feels more like a sleek, urban apartment than hotel. The spa-like bathroom is spectacular and the Boston Cream Pie, served by the adjacent restaurant, is decadent and delicious. However, what makes this place memorable and worthy of a return is its staff. From the moment... More

Great location – interesting place. Run down: Location: In the middle of Boston – can’t really go wrong. Property: Really well done renovations – that is the part that struck me about the property. Food: Very good (I only had breakfast) but it was excellent. Service: Decent. No complaints. Room: The most unexpected part – very modern, huge ceiling, huge... More

SCORE! I got a great Hotwire deal to stay here for a few days. I t is in the heart of Boston, within walking distance to many places you want to visit if you are a tourist and right in the financial district if you are here for business. The rooms are modern, visually comfortable and comfortable. From the greeters... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at AMES for 3 nights in early January. I planned Boston as a simple getaway for us and to treat her to a weekend away from NYC. It was my first time visiting Boston and I had done a great amount of research into which hotel we would stay at because I wanted it to... More

Loved the decor and privacy of the rooms. Subway running underneath can be quite noisy. I noticed it, my partner did not. Bathroom quite luxurious compared to similar hotels. Modern, functional decor was a nice change of pace. Excellent views if you're a tourist!

Thank you so much for the kind review. We're sorry if the subway bothered you during your stay. In our defense, the Ames building was here first (built in 1893)! We do strive to have all of our guests enjoy their stay so we hope you brought it to our attention so we could accommodate you on a higher floor.... More

Me and my husband stayed at the Ames for 5 nights in December and really loved it. Location is the best in Boston in my opinion, so close to Faneuil Hall marketplace with all the restaurants and bars and Quincy market. Short walk to the North End and Washington Street just around the corner where you can do some serious... More

We stayed for one night with another couple and couldn't have had a better stay! Check in was quick and seamless, and all the staff members were warm, welcoming, and very friendly. Our room was ready before check in time which was a definite plus. The staff even put us in adjoining rooms without my asking! Brilliant!!! The hotel is... More
