“Basic, adequate lodging whose main attraction is proximity to other things.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Hotel is best described as adequate. Rooms are good sized, reasonably clean, and the balconys are nice. But i for one, am not sure the attraction of courtyards. No free breakfast, not even a donut or bagel, no paper at your door in the morning, really, not much except basic lodging. Bedding was OK, matressess a little cheap and firm but maybe i am spoiled. not enough elevators. Parking tight, road out front is always quite busy. Plenty to do in the area though, shopping, food choices, etc. Surly desk staff. Looks elsewhere unless you are in a pinch for this spot or are using points.

Room Tip: Larger balconies in the front center rooms. try to look over the swamp, it is quieter tnan the road...

I stayed here a lot in 2012, almost 3 months straight. Very nice hotel, awesome staff, nice rooms, just a great experience.
If you want to eat somewhere, just ask the staff, they know all sorts of great places, and will gladly take you there.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This was a rewards stay for last Saturday night. We checked in at 5:00 and it was quick and easy. The room was clean and at a pleasant temperature and a light was already on in case we arrived after dark. After we settled in, I made a reservation at a local restaurant and found out that the hotel provides a shuttle to area locations within two miles so I contacted the front desk and they said it was first come, first served so to please be there about 20 minutes before our reservation. We had a lovely driver who made certain to give us her card so she could return to pick us up, very nice! This hotel,was in a perfect location for the Natick Mall, area restaurants, and for the reason I was there, to visit my daughter at Wellesley College. We did not visit the bar or restaurant on site, but they had coffee and tea out at all times and gave us each bottled water for our room.

For a family event in the Boston area, we stayed at this hotel and were pleasantly surprised. We usually stay in Bed and Breakfasts or quirky hotels. This hotel did not have any of the features of a B&B, and was definitely not quirky -- okay, it was a bland chain hotel, but fit the bill for a one night stay in an inexpensive (special rates because of family event), very clean, hotel. The room was large -- it had a king bed plus a sleeper couch. The bathroom was spartan but spotless. There seemed to be a small balcony, albeit one looking over a busy uninteresting stretch of road. Even the breakfast surprised ---well, part of the breakfast, that is, the excellent omelets made on request. The rest of the breakfast was typical chain hotel stuff, though the fruit was fresh. So, if you have to be in this area, this is a fine choice. It is located in a suburb of Boston very close to a large, suburban shopping center. This is not a hotel near any obvious tourist destinations (at least none that I am aware of).

visited for a small family reunion and could not have asked for a more helpful staff. From Check-in thru Check-out the staff was exceptional. We needed a small refrigerator in one of the rooms and it was delivered within 15 minutes. Housekeepers had a smile every time we would walk by. would have liked the bar open later than 11pm, especially after dealing with that much family all day. Lynne the Director of Sales was wonderful, she made us feel like we had been friends for decades. If you want convenient in metro west, this is it!

When I drove up to this hotel there was a large dumpster full of carpets. Oh, oh - not another hotel under renovation! I remember a Hampton Inn in Florida where they had the smoke detectors covered in plastic so the dust wouldn't set them off (I was the one who went off!). Not this place, though. My room smelled of new carpet. It was on the sixth floor. Definitely clean, new furniture apparently and no complaints about the room. The hallway carpet has stains and holes but I imagine that is on the list to be replaced.

The front desk staff was great, greeted me as a Platinum Elite Premier and if I have to be in the area again I will certainly stay here.

A real nice place, very clean and comfortable. Only a slight problem. We brought bathing suits to enjoy the indoor pool for the afternoon when we arrived. To our shagrin it was closed till 4 in the afternoon. Apparently closes from 11 am till 4 pm ??? Not very accomodating hours . Other than that , clean rooms, nice lobby , cute little bar.

Room Tip: best thing was it's a smoke free hotel
