Stayed here with my husband and parents from Germany for the 4th of July night. It was withing perfect location to the great dining options of the South End (for those new to the city, head south/away from from center on Claredon Street and you will hit it) and within a short walk to the Esplanade. We didn't look for... More

Many of the reviews of this hotel complain about the size of the rooms and the stark nature of the decor, but to be honest you can't complain given the price you pay for the location. The rooms are small by US standards, but the bedding and bathroom were clean, nice toiletries and staff were really helpful. The complimentary breakfast... More

We spent a Memorial Day Weekend in Boston. 140 Hotel represents an affordable option, in a great location. For 139$ a night, we got a spacious room on 14th floor that was furnished in an old style. The windows faced a quiet street. We were nicely surprised to discover that there was a fully complete kitchenette too, that included a... More

While the location can't be beat be wary of this hotel. I was given an upgrade to a suite (usually makes me very happy) but while the space was terrific--large sitting room/kitchen and large bedroom, it lacked many features that make a room comfortable. The lighting was sub-par--the large sitting room had only one floor lamp--no lamp on the desk,... More

Yes, it's small, but how much time do you spend in a hotel room when you're in a city as exciting as Boston? Those who complain about the size must live in their rooms! My wife and I were very pleased. It was clean (I've stayed at some 5-star places that were filthy!) and the people at the front desk... More

There is NO WAY this merits 3 stars - lets begin with the linoleum floors in the hallway and room I had (824) the minature spot for hanging clothes - their idea of a closet is wall pegs behind the door - since room is MINISCULE don't bring much as there will be no storage. It resembled a cross between... More

This hotel is the best value for dollar you will find in any big city. Great location. Comfortable rooms. Friendly & helpful staff. All for a price anyone can afford. We travel a lot, and this is my best find yet.

This hotel is in the middle of downtown Boston and quite a deal. We paid $71/night with AAA discount. The room was recently redone. Very clean , private bath, I'net access in room. No disappointments.

The Hotel 140 in Boston, MA, is a historical and charming building. The architecture of the lobby is beautiful and the rooms are spacious, warm and clean (with extremely cozy beds). The staff was exceptionally courteous and helpful with directions to points of interest and local restaurants. The building is located in Copley Square, which is a historical area in... More
