I usually stay at larger chain hotels, but chose the Ames hotel because of its proximity to my business meeting. What a find! My room was upgraded to a suite at check-in, and what a suite it was! Very spacious, modern, immaculately clean, and comfortable. The staff was attentive, helpful, and knowledgable. The Woodward restaurant in the hotel was fun... More

I chose to return to the Ames for a second visit in a month, first for business later for pleasure with a family member.As a seasoned traveler I can say that this was one of the most refreshing city hotel stays I have ever had...from the friendly doormen to the 'nothing is too much trouble' front desk,on to the crisp...

We are a family of 4 on a driving vacation from outside of Chicago. Started in Cape Cod and finished up our trip staying a weekend at the Ames. We pulled up in a mini-van with 4 bikes on the back, immediately Jordan and another bell hop (I apologize I don't remember his name) helped my husband unload the bikes... More

My daughter and I both loved the hotel. The staff was nice and attentive. The decor was cool, but not cold. The location was great for us! Would definitely go back and refer to my friends.

Great vibe indeed! Thank you so much for your review, I’m glad you enjoyed your time with us and that you loved the decor!

My husband and I booked the Ames on lastminutetravel, got a great deal, and loved everything about our two night stay at the Ames. The hotel is chic, modern, trendy, interesting, and a great location. We walked to Faneuil Hall, Boston Common, Beacon Street, Frog Pond, theatre district, local restaurants, and walked to James Hook & Co. by the waterfront... More

I think the peek-a-boo showers are so fun! I’m glad that you enjoyed them and loved your stay. Boston is a walking city, as they say, and it seems like you found that to be true! It’s nice being right in the middle of everything, that way you can spend half the day in once side of the city, come... More

Staff was friendly and very accommodating. Bar & Restaurant were quite the hot spot, but it didn't interfere with hotel guests being comfortable. Corner King Room was fantastic - bed & pillows were comfortable, flat screen tv was big and positioned well and the view was terrific. Street noise on the weekends (and it was mostly ambulances) were a little... More
