First time staying in this hotel. It was close to shopping and restaurants. Very clean room and pleasant located on 2nd floor facing Beacon St. Staff were accommodating and friendly. Would stay again.

Hi there, One of the best holiday inn experiences for me. Came to town on a red eye for an interview very late, I was met by Dean who was incredibly nice especially considering it was the middle of the night. I'm not one to write many reviews, but the staff was great and facilities were great. Indoor covered pool,... More

We stayed here for a weekend in November to attend a family wedding at the Alden Castle (worthy of its own fine review). The shuttle from the hotel was available and responsive during the entire wedding for guests to go to and from the hotel. Staff was great at all levels. The entire hotel needs a new look but we...

This hotel is about 6 blocks south of the west BU campus, right on Beacon Street. If you have a BU student at this end of the campus and don't mind the walk, the rate can be relatively reasonable, even during the Head of the Charles weekend. The two guys at the service desk (one was Robert but I can't... More

The layout of this Holiday Inn is very strange. If you enter through the garage, you come in on the lower level where the banquet rooms are located. You have to walk up the stairs to the hotel registration. The guest rooms do not have windows to the outside - the rooms face an indoor courtyard with an indoor pool.... More

This hotel is right at a T-stop (Green Line). It is also close to several medical clinics (Joslin, Boston Childrens hospital, etc), and there is a hotel shuttle to these locations. Few restaurants are immediately accessible, But, the hotel is badly in need of attention. Cleanliness is an issue (hairs in the bathroom, dated furniture and carpeting for example). Some... More

This hotel is within walking distance, one block away from Coolidge Corner which is probably considered the happening place in Brookline also the close proximity to Boston right on the T!

This is a very nice hotel in a lovely residential area. The staff are very gracious indeed. The room was well-equipped (mini-fridge appreciated) and very clean. Bed was comfortable, although I had to turn off the temperature control as the register was directly above the bed. Hotel is on a trolley line, a bit out of the city, but pretty... More

Thank you for your feedback. We do our best to provide our guests coming to the hospitals the best rate available upon availability.
