Stayed one night for business. Absolutely delighted from the moment I arrived to the moment I left (and I do a lot of business travel staying in city CBDs, so have some context for comparison). And the location is excellent (central boston). Can't recommend this highly enough. If you can, grab a beer and the duck parfait flatbread from the... More

Aside from being a beautiful modern hotel I was very grateful for the help of the housekeeping team. We left behing a pair of pretty expensive and new trousers behind. I was pretty frantic and they called me back immediately and arranged to ship it back to me. This kind of service matters to me.

I stayed in the Ames in Boston in June 2010 as part of a wider trip to the US. The hotel as a whole is very well presented, super clean and very well designed. I especially liked the outside area where you could eat a meal on some nice outdoor sofas. The room itself was bright and spacious - the... More

I booked the Ames because it looked really modern and trendy and was close to an event we had for the weekend. The front of the hotel can be easily missed because it blends right in with the other business buildings in the area, but rest assured once inside it is just amazing. On the first floor there is a...

Although I've stayed in many Morgans hotels in the past (Hudson, Mondrian LA, Sanderson, Shore Club) I was starting to get a little tired of them as I felt they sacrificed substance over style. That is however simply not the case at the Ames...not only is it stylish but its one of the nicest places I've stayed at. The big... More
