We were looking for a hotel close to Blue Hills Pavillion so my daughter and 2 girl friends 17-19 years old could walk to the concert and over the bridge to Fanuiell Hall area. Location Perfect for this! I had called the hotel a few weeks before to request a cot in the room( I do not usually travel with... More

New or renovated hotels stayed at the club level rooms. Everything was great BUT the valet drivers need some work in common courtesy. I had a rental and pulled up to pick up my bags that the hotel was holding and was berated/yelled at by the valet b/c I couldn't park and run in to get my bags unless I... More

Friendly staff, step up from basic rooms. Located near water…true but...Faneuil Hall and the rest of the major attractions are a long walk away. Nightmare as there was no water when we woke on Saturday morning. No fault of the hotel as it was reported to be a water main break. To their credit they did slide a letter under... More

I stayed for a week in August with the family. The staff was very friendly and allowed us to check-in well before check-in time as we had an early flight. The Navigator was very helpful in pointing us in the direction we wanted. The room itself was comfortable with a great waterfront view, but the hotel is located a bit... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I appreciate your kind comments regarding your smooth arrival to our hotel and our team's ability to accommodate an early check in. While the Seaport district is admittedly not as close to some of the historical sights in Boston, there is quite a bit of development in the area that... More

Nice place to stay, room with two beds not very roomy for the price. Extras are pricey, 16.75 for internet. Food is pricey but, has starbucks but not much selection in breakfast food. Front desk and "navigator" very helpful. Located in up and coming area south end of town but several places to eat and short taxi ride to the... More

Stayed here for five nights in August 2014: kind of in an industrial area but within walking distance to a few restaurants/bars. Check in was easy, you can do mobile check-in/out, the front desk staff were very nice and helpful. Eisha at the "Navigator" desk was AWEsome, really helped me find my way around Boston and full of recommendations. The... More

Great property, easy access to MTA Clean room breakfast in bed was excellent. Ask for high floor for Harbor view. Check in early if available and luggage storage after check out. Nice lounge and entertaiment, better for business than tourist unless you know how to use MTA and don't mind paying for Taxis

Great property. Great staff. Plenty of dining options within a very short walk. Concierge Lounge is good sized. Breakfast in restaurant is quick with many tasty options plus the normal buffet. Room was clean and nice. Check-in was a bit slow as a lot of us were checking in at the same time but the staff handled it well.

$16.95 a day for WIFI? And $12.95 a day for slow WIFI? $4 for a tiny bottle of water? C'mon, I already paid $677 for two nights. Why not just beat me up in the elevator? Abusive prices for extras is a sad way to treat people who are paying top dollar. I won't be back.
