I was on 7th floor away from street. It was quiet and comfortable. Room clean and nice. Breakfast is standard holiday inn express fare which I don't really care for. I end up just eating the oatmeal. Staff was friendly and helpful. They arranged a few taxi rides for me.

We stayed at this hotel at the start of a 2 week road trip around New England starting with a visit to Boston. The hotel's rates were much cheaper than staying in the city and it had a free car park for our rental car. Check in was a little tricky as the lady on the desk was distracted by... More

Stayed there for 2 nights and it was great. Rooms were spacious and clean. Free breakfast! Hotel was located a short 10 minute walk to a local shopping centre where we were able to get on the hop on hop off tourist bus. Staff we're very helpful throughout our stay. In particular Phil who was great from checkin to departure.

Clean, comfortable and well located for the T into Boston town. Staff were helpful and breakfast was fine although the 'fresh orange' juice was from a machine and was rubbish. Some natural yoghurt pots would have been nice for a continental style breakfast. Minor points and overall pretty good.

We stayed one night at this hotel. Our room was clean. In a good area, that was close to attractions. They had great cookies at the front desk! Breakfast was good. Only down sound, we could hear all the noise from the street in the morning. Would stay again.

Our family spent 4 nights here. Front desk very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and hot breakfast was tasty. We made a to-go bag two mornings in order to catch an early train to Salem and get an early start sightseeing around Boston. The T stop is an easy walking distance.Will definitely stay again when in the area.

This was our first trip to Boston. We chose this hotel outside of Boston due to price and we typically choose the Holiday Inn Express everywhere we travel. This hotel is really great. They have friendly service, clean rooms, comfortable beds and a good tv channel selection. The only downfall of this hotel is the parking situation. They don't have... More

This was our first visit to Boston, and loved the location of this hotel. It is just three blocks from the subway T. Room was very clean, bed comfortable & morning breakfast was hot with a clean eating area. Front desk staff very helpful and answered all our questions when it came to directions and things to do.
