We need to go to Boston often and have been victims of the city's high priced hotels. Hampton Inns have a reputation for consistency and in our experience we know what we're going to get. This facility was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the breakfast, while not at the gourmet level, is better than what I usually eat at home in the morning. The serving area was clean and the attendant was polite and helpful. The bonus for us, was that the hotel is situated minutes from a significant number of stores and malls, so we were able to shop nearby before, heading into the city. The access from the Mass Pike is very quick, although our navigation system took us there by a longer way. The value for the September weekend we stayed was excellent. Getting back onto I-90, took only minutes, although I noticed that if you want travel through the suburbs and go through Wellsley and Newton, you could also take US 9 and avoid the tolls. US-9 becomes Huntington Avenue and takes you straight to the Pru Center.This facility also has a significant meeting areas on the second floor. We'll be back.
