Not a better place to stay if you're attending an event at the TD Bank Garden. We stayed there last week while in town for a concert. It was an easy walk to the event. Also, our room had an unbelievable view of the Charles River. Also, the staff was friendly and helpful. My room had just been updated and... More

We stayed at at the Royal Sonesta to go to a Red Sox game. We always enjoy staying there because of it's proximity to the T, the Science Museum, and a mall with the Cheesecake Factory right across the street. This time they were under construction, so the lobby was a little bit noisy, but yet it was still immaculate.... More

Stayed at Royal Sonesta over the 4th of July weekend. Hotel is very nice with a modern look. Rooms were spacious and clean and easily accommodated the family. Staff was nice. Gym had new equipment and was open 24 hours. Only thing keeping it from a 5 for me is the parking fees. Otherwise a great place to stay in... More

This property is decorated in a starkly modern but elegant style. The rooms have some interesting details like a motion activated nightlight and motion activated closet light. Our room was very comfortable, clean, and well maintained. We had a minor issue in our room which was promptly fixed.

Chose this hotel for 4th of July visit. It was easy to get in and out of with on site parking garage (at $38/night though). Location was nice. Rooms were nicely decorated but lots of noise from others.

The Hotel charged me $30 extra for a river "view" that I had to bend my neck to see the river, and the rooms did not have a coffee pot. I had to travel to the Starbucks in the mall across the street. You would think they would want to keep the hotel guest in the hotel.

This hotel has a great location, clean inside, but a couple things annoyed me, First and formost for the $ they charge there should be a coffee maker in the room or complimentary in the lobby! Also, walls are pretty thin and the restaurant is EXPENSIVE!

We just spent a four night stay here iver the Fourth of July. While we were a little nervous when we walked in to hear the construction when we went to our room on the 5th floor or even just around the corner to the first floor restaurant you couldn't hear the noise. The river view was amazing. The room... More
