Every staff person I encountered during my stay was fantastic - very patient and accommodating. I reserved 2 rooms (a queen, and a double) for my group of 6 people. The rooms were a bit small (and the beds felt small also), but it was still a comfortable stay. I can't say enough about how great the staff was. I... More

. This is the former YWCA in Boston's Back Bay. This does not mean it's uncomfortable. For a European traveller who wants good value the rooms are adequate in size and have TV, fridge, microwave and coffee making equipment. The bed in my room comfortable and while the bathroom only had a shower that was fine for my needs though... More

I've stayed at Hotel 140 numerous times and it never disappoints. It's my favorite place to stay when visiting friends in the great city of Boston. It may not be the Ritz-Carlton, but what it lacks in glam and frills, it makes up in charm, service and authenticity. The rooms are clean, comfortable and welcoming. The staff was extremely friendly... More

It rained fairly steadily during our three night stay in Boston. Determined to walk the Freedom Trail anyway, we returned to the hotel with dripping wet clothing. A management level employee saw us and insisted she take all of our wet clothing to their clothes dryer. They were returned in an hour, warm, dry and folded. She refused a tip.... More
