I booked this hotel weeks before my family stayed here and I specifically asked for two double beds and a pull out couch. When I arrived, of course there was no pull out couch as promised. The price of course was not adjusted for the oversight, but of course they would cancel the reservation for me and I could go... More

we liked the hotel very much. Staff very helpful and friendly, got us in our room early, and let us stay a little late. bed and linens high quality. Lots of space to put our stuff, updated all around. We had a 'King bed City View' (sort of). Our only issues were with the building itself, which can't be helped,... More

Hotel has a wonderful friendly staff and great location for tourists, just a walk away from all points of interest. Upon check in you receive a warm cookie and a bottle of water, cookie was delicious! Rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. Highly recommend this hotel. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is ideal if you need to go to Tufts medical center, but if you just need a place to stay... look somewhere else. The rooms are dated, the elevator went down twice while we were there, and the A/C went out. We actually ended up needing to move to a different room because of it. If you get... More

From the moment I stepped into the hotel, the service staff were notably accommodating and went out of their way to make sure my stay was an exceptional experience. The complimentary Internet, printing services, and extra warm cookies and bottled water upon arrival didn't hurt either. There is also a Starbucks connected to the hotel lobby. The central location of... More

Excellent hotel to use for tourism in the downtown area without depending on a car. close to the T station and very close to the Boston Common and Theater District. The staff was very accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable about getting things done to see the city. The beds in the room were very comfortable and all amenities had been updated.

Stayed here with my family because it was the most reasonably priced hotel within walking distance of the landmarks we wanted to see. Despite some of the other reviews, we walked everywhere and it felt very safe. Lots of things to see and do nearby, and good food too. Rooms were nice. Staff was friendly. Will stay again.

Stayed here for a conference in Boston. It is in a central location to feasibly walk to everything in Boston. We walked to the freedom trail, all the restaurants we wanted to visit, Fenway, and even out to MIT across the river. We celebrated our anniversary and the staff sent up a very nice food basket and always welcomed us... More

The location of the hotel is not as central as others in the area and you do have to walk past a hospital every time. It is also not the most pleasant walk to most of the popular spots. Having said that , the hospitality and warmth of the place more than makes up for the location. The front desk... More
