We stayed here for 3 nights, 21-24 Oct 14. For fellow Brits reading this, I'd describe this as midway between a Travelodge and a Premier Inn. If you are expecting luxury, this is not the hotel for you. Although our room was small, it was adequate, and very clean, for all you ladies it even has an iron and ironing... More

Dear Tali1964, Thank you for your recent stay at Hotel 140! I am thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that our Front Desk Team was so helpful!

Rooms are quite small, but we weren't in Boston to spend any amount of time in the room so it was no problem. Bed was a lot smaller than we're used to and made worse by the fact that it was far too soft (at least for my back) but that seems to be typical of the US and wasn't... More

We chose the hotel based upon its location and weren't disappointed. It is well placed for access to Back Bay station and the underground, we walked from the hotel to Fenway Park as well and to the USS Constitution. For breakfast we used the small café downstairs and my wife and I each had two eggs plus toast with coffee... More

This hotel might my expectations - clean room, comfortable bed, quiet room and walking distance to most of the sites. Logan express stop and subway stop very close. Not the fairmont but I would rather save the money and still get my expectation met. Would definitely go back.

I was assigned a room, given a key and sent to my room. But the room was already occupied by another assigned guest - I walked in on him. We were both shocked and embarrassed! This is totally unacceptable.

The hotel's own description "Boutique" doesn't fit with our interpretation of the word. It does its job well enough, but the room lacked any real character to merit "boutique". But in an interesting city, who spends much time in the room? Not a very large one, or the bathroom, typical of city centre hotels, but very well placed near Copley... More

The shower was a small closet. There was no shelf to place soap or any small bottles in the shower. You had to leave them on the floor. Also, the "free" shampoo, conditioner appeared to have been refilled - not new bottles - water marks on the bottles. I'm glad I brought the "free" shampoo and conditioner from my previous... More
