Light in the bathroom would sporadically not work, which is problematic. One of the two towels in the bathroom was really dirty, and the other was ripped up... I opted to use the ripped one. Carpet in the room was very worn and dirty. There wasn't a safe in the room... first time I've ever not had a safe in... More

The staff at the hotel made everything easy from start to finish. Check in was done and dusted in no time, any information needed from places to eat to which train to take was available in no time at all. Check out was the same they also stored my bags allowing me the final day for some last minute shopping... More

The rooms are extremely small, but clean and efficient. Everything was in nice, new working order. However, the walls between rooms are so thin as to make them virtually nonexistent. The staff was accommodating when we asked to move rooms due to noisy neighbors the first night. However, the second room was no better, and we could hear the people... More

Perfect place central to shopping, dining and theater. Small but immaculate rooms, comfortable and friendly staff. Price is great for Boston and parking is next door with a 40 percent discount. Yes this is a renovated YWCA but this is just like staying at any other hotel.

The hotel is located very close to the BackBay train station and Copley square. There are a couple of malls just a block away and many food options. The justifiably famous Flour bakery is right across the street. So, location wise you will not get a sweeter deal than this. The icing on the cake is the reasonable room price.... More

My husband and I stayed here only one night. This hotel is a great value. The staff were extremely helpful, the room was large and clean, and the bed was comfortable. We were on the 8th floor and the room was perfectly quiet. We easily walked from the hotel to everywhere we wanted to go. I would give the hotel... More

Met up with a good friend here for a girls' weekend. The location was incredibly convenient to public transportation, and we could walk almost everywhere we wanted to go.
