Stayed here I'm May with family when they did the Run To Remember marathon, nice rooms, view was not that great tho, but we were only there to sleep anyway. Great location and easy walking distance to a lot of things to do and see which is a plus considering I walk with a cane. If I have the chance... More

Stayed here 3 nights with my children.The hotel was good,the location is probably better when you stay for business than pleasure.We had to take a taxi to everywhere,as there is no shops etc around the hotel. It takes about 25mins to walk to the old part of Boston,if the weather is nice,this is a nice walk and the old part... More

The hotel is very professional, well maintained, excellent staff and nice location. The rooms were of average size, but the bedding and linens were extremely comfortable. The bathroom was well lite and and a nice variety of toiletries. The staff was friendly and helpful in explaining how to best get around the city and catch the trains.

We were here for 2 nights during a work related event. Nice spacious rooms. Lobby was impeccable and rooms were clean. We did not have a great view from our room, but I was not paying so I did not request a room change. The beds were comfortable. Really nice hotel.

The hotel was beautiful, well maintained, great staff, and nice location. However, the Wi-Fi was not complimentary. There were several restaurants and bars within a 5 minute walk. The bar in the hotel is nice as well, and I didn't have an opportunity to eat at the restaurant. I enjoy walking, so I learned that Boston is a nice walking... More

This hotel was the best one we stayed in during our last holiday to the US. The room was great, the beds were so comfortable, the bathroom was perfect, with good toiletries and good coffee provided. The staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good although a little confusing as they didn't serve the buffet every day.... More

Ain't nothin wrong with this place but nothing to get excited about, either. I was there to work with a financials services client. The even was for their meeting planners and the hotel was on their best behavior to make sure these meeting planners - who pick properties to hold big meetings - had a good experiences. I got the...

Recently had a couple of colleagues housed here for a nearby conference at the convention center and the staff was GREAT! The hotel is beautiful and in a great location on the water, the front desk was so very accommodating to every one of our needs, definitely recommend it and definitely will return!

We stayed here for the concert at TD Garden. You can get to the venue from this hotel with a $20 taxi ride, or take the Silver line to South Station then take the T to North Station, or a 35 minute walk past the harbor front and the iconic north end: we walked and stopped to see the tall... More

Booked this hotel through Priceline and was thrilled! Great waterfront location. We haven't been to Boston for several years and this end of the waterfront is really developing nicely. Walking distance (10-15 min) to Faneuil Hall area. Rooms are what you would expect at the price point. Bed was crazy comfortable with nice pillows and soft linens. Breakfast is expensive... More
