Refurbished former YWCA building located a short walk from Back Bay Station and Copley Square. Clean, comfortable well appointed rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Best value for the location. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in downtown Boston.

I enjoyed the quiet of a small hotel and the good, simple taste of the room. I enjoyed particularly the willingness of the staff to help me with questions about itineraries and other needs. The location couldn't be better.

Hotel 140 is conveniently located, close to the Back Bay Station (Orange Line) and the Copely Station (Green Line). The hotel itself is very clean and nice and the staff is extremely helpful. We were able to move from downtown Boston to relative in Jamaica Plain and Waban without a hitch.

I like the hotel- it is clean and has free Wifi. Just be warned- it is TINY!!!! Do not book this if more than two peoples restating in the room OR if you are two large people. It has all the essentials and the staff is friendly. We were not in the room much so the size did not bother... More

It was our first trip to Boston and we were looking for a hotel to stay that was a good value, and good location. We found both with hotel 140. Great service. Rooms were small, but we were out and about most of the time and just needed a bed. We would definitely stay there again.

The hotel location is very nice. Near Copley square and the Boston Commons. I went for a pleasant walk the day i arrived from Europe and the next morning when I woke up early. I also walked to the shorefront (30 minutes). The reception staff is pleasant although the hall is not that luxurious or big. It is ample but... More

Comfortable, welcoming, fabulously well-located hotel near Copley Sq. in Boston. Rooms are small but well-appointed and squeaky clean. Great front desk staff. One negative -- there is no staff to help with luggage up and down entrance stairs.

Great location and staff! Room was comfortable and cozy! The hotel is near Copley Square, the T transportation rail line, the Logan Airport Shuttle service, and is within walking distance to most downtown tourist attractions.
