I would like to say a few good words. I stayed at your hotel dates 28/6 - 8/7. (Ames hotel) Throughout the stay the hotel staff was very courteous. Room service and a high level of cleanliness of the room! There is a fact that gives the name Diana cano service and personal attention.

I booked this hotel for two nights through as a hotwire mystery hotel. On booking, despite being quite familiar with Boston, I was unaware of it. However, on the whole the experience was really positive. First, the location is really good- about 50m from State subway stop, thus three stops from Logan airport on the blue line, about 150m from... More

Great hotel - the location is ideal and the accommodations are very clean and modern. We had an issue with our safe not working and it was replaced very quickly. Extra pillows were no problem - everyone was so friendly. Parking was atrocious ($42/night) but when you're in downtown Boston I guess that is to be expected.

We loved our stay at the Ames Hotel located in the heart of the historic district. The desk staff was courteous and helpful and our room was terrific. We particularly enjoyed the two "door men" Drake and Derek. They could not have been more friendly, cheerful and helpful. If you're looking for a great location near "old" Boston, give this... More

My true rating is 4.5 stars, however that is not an option above. It should be! Perfect location, LOVELY suite (we upgraded from a standard room, and it was SO worth it). The suite had floor to ceiling windows, overlooking the city streets. It was a beautiful view and enabled us to see the city moves from the comfort of... More

Thank you so much for the kind review. We're glad you enjoyed our location & interior. We're sorry you found the Molton Brown amenities in the bathroom "lacking", but we do have many other items (dental kits, shaving kits, etc.) available upon request.

In combination w/ being centrally located in the Downtown Boston area, the staff here was very friendly, informative, and accommodating from start to finish.

Stayed here for my birthday and really enjoyed this hotel. One of the nicest rooms I've ever stayed at. Very clean and comfortable room for a couple. Right behind the Olde State House along the Freedom Trail...the bar downstairs is very nice and the bartender was very pleasant. Highly recommend this hotel!

Charming, historic, central...beautiful suites on the 3rd floor--highly recommend booking one of these rooms. Gym is new but small. Views of activity on the street. Close to everything wonderful in Boston (Financial District,Fanuel Hall, North End, historic sites). Old marble stairs are beautiful..and a great work out versus the elevator.
