To be frank, the accomodation was fine and the desk very helpful but no room service, no bar and the fact that half the hotel is actually apartments based on a hostel type affair, this really wasn't worth the money they charge. I fully reccomend that you pay a little extra and stick with one of the better known chains.... More

I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for reasonably priced hotel accommodation in Boston. Hotel 140 is in a good location - walking distance from the main tourist attractions (inc. Newbury Street which is a five minute walk and great for dinner) and right next to a subway station for exploring farther afield. Whilst the room is small, it... More

Rooms are very clean and staff very helpful. Location is superb. Price much less than the other hotels in the area. Not all of the "chain" hotel amenities are available. The rooms are small but little time spent in the room. We would return to the hotel our next trip.

Location: This hotel is a block from Copley Square in a convenient central location. This means it is also close to the Copley Square metro station for easy access around town and to/from the airport. You can walk to Newbury Street, the Boston Public Garden and Boston Common, to the shops at the Prudential Centre, the library etc. Hotel: We... More

I picked this hotel in July as prices seemed to be somewhat reasonable, although, $200 is plenty of money. It also appeared that Hotel 140 is close to a lot of activities, and for that convenience you may want to stay here. A converted YWCA, the rooms are a bit small. The bathroom is even smaller but functional. I felt... More

The hotel is within walking distance of everything we wanted to see and do and, of course, Boston has a very comprehensive public transport system that is very accessible from the hotel. The hotel occupies what used to be part of the YWCA and various other organisations share the building. The reception and staff are helpful, efficient and friendly. Our... More

I stayed here twice, at the beginning and end of my holiday. I booked this place for the price, which is reasonable for Boston. I was pleasantly surprised at the size and quality of the rooms. The staff were extremely helpful, and I scored a free upgrade on my final night, which was a pleasant surprise. The rooms were quiet... More

Dear TimothyO, Thank you for staying and returning to Hotel 140! Our location is fantastic! We are just a two minute walk to Back Bay Train Station. The rooms are immaculate and very quiet. Many of our guests comment on how quiet are rooms are. If possible, we do like to offer complimentary upgrades, although not guaranteed. We hope that... More

We stayed at Hotel 140 for 2 nights and we really appreciated it. The location is great, near a metro station, but also in a very nice area. Breakfast is not included but there is a nice little restaurant/café in the same building and other nice café around. There is a parking lot right next to the hotel. It is... More

The hotel describes itself as 'boutique' but the price is very reasonable. Travellers from the UK beware: the local taxes will make this more expensive than the rates quoted in booking site. The decor and facilities are generally good, though the queen size rooms are not very spacious. The king size rooms are better though space was not well used... More
