This hotel is modern and clean. Some rooms have harbor views. Although there is nothing memorable about this hotel, it's a good choice if you are attending a convention. The fitness facilities are above average for a hotel. The concierge lounge is very nice, with friendly staff.

This hotel is conveniently located near the Seaport World trade center. We walked back & forth even in the cold. We ate at MC Spiedo for every meal even bringing the volleyball team and parents to this restaurant. The food is exceptional. Best bolognase I've ever had. Wood oven pizzas, and the prices are great for being in the heart... More

Stayed for 4 nights and the location is the best thing about this hotel. Did typical family tourism things in Boston and the tour bus lines pick up very close to this hotel. We ate in the restaurant a couple of nights and the food and wait staff were good. Easy walk to other restaurants. I expected more from the... More

Staff was friendly and attentive, hotel was quiet and located near some excellent restaurants. While we chose to eat outside the hotel, the restaurant there has been James Beard nominated in the past. Avoid the Starbucks in the lobby - our experience was that things most Starbucks offer to toast (a bagel, for example) are unceremoniously bagged and shoved across... More

My family stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is located on the water front. There is no subway lines there. There is a bus silver line. We walked up to Quincy market and it took about 25 minutes. There are nice restaurants near the hotel and in the hotel. The beds are very comfortable and so are the pillows.... More

We stayed here the night before boarding a cruise. The Cruise Terminal was a 5 minute cab ride. Room was spacious with a great view of the harbor. Excellent location near restaurants, harbor walk, and Harpoon brewery. Staff was very helpful with directions and information.

Stayed in a double bedded room on the 17th floor from June 25-28, 2015. The beds are wonderfully comfortable. Location is in the Seaport area of Boston which is very close to the airport. Silver Line (bus) from airport will drop you off for free, right across the street from the hotel. Nearby restaurants are busy at night (we stayed... More
