If you are looking for a hotel outside of Boston (but still easy to get in and out of the city) - this is a great hotel to pick. It is near the mass pike and Rt. 128. There is plenty to do in the area as well. Restaurants, movie theater, several malls all with-in walking distance or a quick car ride. The staff at the hotel was very accommodating and friendly. We ate at the restaurant on site - The Pantry for breakfast and we would recommend it highly. When you walk in the aroma is very calming and welcoming. The rooms were beautifully done and spacious. It was a win win for our family.
