This hotel should have been refurbished at least twice in the last 30 years. Shabby, but clean with beds lumpier than school custard. Creepy stalker staff, that stared at my wife and no restaurant facilities. On the upside, great central location.

You better chose this hotel if you really want to be in walking distance from central spots, e.g. the Hynes Convention center but have low expectations on comfort. The rates are high, WiFi costs extra 10$ per 24 hrs, and the room equipment is very low, even no fridge. Beds and pillows are good though. The isolation of the windows... More

I booked this hotel last week last minute for the night of April 19th. It got cheaper as the week went on so I ending up paying $223.00 with the AARP discount. I was so scared of all the negative reviews. And everyone posted on here said said to stay in the back of the hotel...Well I wanted a front... More

If you are looking for a state of the art modern hotel in downtown Boston, this is not for you. It is dated and our room was small, as was the bathroom. What this hotel is, is perfect for someone who is visiting Boston for a couple nights and is not planning on spending time in the hotel except to... More

My son and I stayed here while visiting Northeastern. Room (2 doubles) was very comfortable-not cramped at all. Walking distance to Northeastern, Copley Square, Back Bay Station and the Pru. Staff was exceptionally nice, from Carole, to Gil to Ketsy... they were all extremely helpful, professional and courteous. My son will be attending NU so we will be staying here... More

This hotel is terrible. I went with 4 other guys to Boston for a bachelor party, and we still could not stay in this place. We were walking to our room, and there was a unmade cot in the middle of the hallway and a latex glove which looked used. The maid even asked us if the latex glove was... More

Stayed at the Midtown over a trip to Boston, The Hotel is all in all a great deal with an awesome location. Not a resort or destination hotel by any means... I am writing this review because of the awesome staff. Specifically Gil at the front desk maybe the day manager? He was very helpful and made our entire trip... More

This is not the nicest hotel in the city. Probably not the tenth nicest. But for value? It's a screaming deal. Ten minute walk to Fenway, five minutes to subway stations, close to Prudential, the BSO, universities....what's not to like? Parking available (for a fee) on site. Yes, it's dated, but clean. Rooms aren't enormous but are completely adequate, clean,... More

We were in Boston with our 18-year-old son to visit Northeastern Univ and have a quick half day walk-about in downtown Boston. This hotel was recommended to us and it was perfect for our needs. Location: T stops (on the green line and on the orange line) within a block or two (then 7 or 8 minutes to downtown?), breakfast... More

I was looking for a "reasonably" priced hotel near the Back Bay area as I was attending a conference at one of the high priced hotels there. I got a great deal on this property. My first room was on the 2nd (top) floor and it was incredibly noisy between foot traffic and auto traffic. It went on until around... More
