We choose the most afordable 4* hotel in the back Bay area. And it was worthed. Location is great. A walking distance from attractions, good restaurants, and afordable parking. You can expect exactly what you see on the photos of their web site. Rooms are not spacious but they are clean and quiet, bed confortable. Staff extremely kind.
