I was very happy with Hotel 140. The desk people were very nice, polite and helpful. The bed was comfortable and the location was perfect. My standard room was small but fine for me since I was alone. The only thing I disliked (strongly disliked) was the shower! There was insufficient water pressure, just a very low fine spray which...

Nice staff, clean hotel. Great location. It was our first time in Boston and the staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. They told us where to get the train to get anywhere. Only wish they had parking.

We stayed here 9 years ago shortly after it became a hotel, so when we were returning to Boston there was no doubt about where we wanted to be. The location is perfect for the marathon or just visiting Boston. The staff couldn't be more helpful, courteous or friendly. Stay here, you will be glad you did!

I had been to Boston before and didn't get the opportunity to visit certain areas, I actually love this hotel because it was close to they key places. The overnight "New Guy" was hilarious and very helpful. Curtis knew a bit about the North End and Quincy Market. I was pleased to discover I was in good hands from arrival... More

For the prices charged over marathon weekend this hotel was a major disappointment. I run Boston yearly and have stayed in many different hotels. Similar prices at other much nicer hotels - book early! Staff not particularly helpful or friendly. Room extremely small. Tiny YWCA shower stall - big disappointment. No food service or in-house restaurant open after 6pm. Fairly... More

Stayed at Hotel 140 for the marathon and for cost / convenience it was a great choice. Staff was friendly & helpful. Room was clean and the location ideal for access to Copley, the T, shopping and dining. Rooms are small as other reviewers have indicated, but are more than adequate to serve as home base during your stay.

It's a great location but be careful. The hotel did not give me the rates and cancellation policy that I was quoted on the phone. We had the Kennedy suite and though it sleeps 8 it has only one very small bathroom and you have to pass through one bedroom to get to the other.
