Hotel 140 is in the heart of Back Bay and right over the metro station so it's the perfect location to stay in Boston and get around easily. The area is safe and plenty of bars and restaurants around. We had read in previous reviews that if you 'like' the hotel on Facebook and comment on their page before you... More

Our trip to Boston was to visit Emerson College so we didn't do much else but felt this hotel was in an excellent location for a Boston visit. We were walking distance to Boston Gardens, Boston Common, Beacon Hill and the Back Bay neighborhood, the theater district, many good restaurants and shopping. The AmTrak and T stations were less than... More

The location can't be beat. Hotel room is on the small side but the queen sized room is definitely big enough for 2 people. Very clean (and I'm very picky about cleaning), comfortable bed and surprisingly quiet room. On the down side, the air conditioning is quite finicky (at least in my room) and I was either freezing or hot... More

Stayed three nights with my husband while sight-seeing in Boston. Perfectly central location, friendly and attentive staff, super clean and comfortable rooms with all the standard amenities.
