Having just moved from an expensive but disappointing historic hotel in downtown Boston, I was pleasantly surprised by this modern, budget-friendly Crowne Plaza. My room on the 9th floor was clean, roomy and comfortable. Comfortable beds, good hot shower, nice amenities (including a sleep kit with earplugs and linen scent spray), reliable elevators.
Yes, it is built over the Mass Pike and the train rumbles by regularly but I didn't find it excessively loud on the 9th floor, especially with the fan unit running for some white noise. It is conveniently located to the Mass Pike, obviously :), but also to lots of interesting locally-owned shops and restaurants in the nearby neighborhoods.
The lobby was under construction which was a bit of a nuisance but we weren't planning to hang out in the lobby anyway. We did have dinner in the restaurant which was PACKED, not surprisingly, because the food turned out to be quite good.
All in all, if you are looking for a convenient place to stay in this neighborhood this is a good, inexpensive option.
