“Great Location, Great Hotel A+++”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

This hotel was perfect for our weekend visit to Boston. The hotel was close to everything and the staff were very friendly. The rooms were extremely clean and modern; and the beds were SOO unbelievably comfortable! We were very happy with the whole experience and recommend these accommodations for anyone staying in the area.

Great Staff. There was a problem with my reservation and Haopbeet Kaob solved it beautifully. If it weren't for the front desk staff, I would have been out of luck. Especially great since they were so busy at the time.

Location. good access to Boston or Logan airport -- since you're on top of the turnpike, but not to the subway. It's in Newton, not Boston proper, but within 3 miles of the airport

Clean, very pleasant and helpful staff, rooms have plenty of space, good beds.
Heated magnified mirror in the bathroom is always a nice touch for shaving. Hairdryer, ironing board, nice shampoos, soap, fragrance, etc.

Food. The breakfast restaurant was directly off the lobby, but was actually quite pleasant and the breakfast buffet was fresh & excellent. There is a restaurant also, which we didn't visit.
There are some decent restaurants within walking distance - - a Bertolli's, Amarin (an upscale Thai place), etc. and a small breakfast place and a tiny Irish bar that serves food across the street, which we didn't visit due to ear-splitting World Cup observances going on, a Subway, etc.

Noise. The hotel literally straddles the Turnpike! We were on the 10th floor, and with the airconditioner running continuously, the traffic noise was ok, but if you turned it off, I think only city-dwellers would be able to sleep well.

Access. You exit the hotel onto a one-way street, cross the turnpike, and then have a half-dozen lanes to choose from, so don't worry if you have to practice a few times to get where you want, just drive around the hotel again and try for a different lane.

Room Tip: Well all the rooms have a great view of traffic on the turnpike, if that turns you on, but ask for a...

I reserved a block of rooms for my wedding and was very happy with my stay at the hotel. All of my guests were very satisfied as well! The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially one of the women at the front desk, Franny. The rooms had awesome views and were very clean. I loved the aromatherapy lotions and shampoos in the room. I would definitely stay again!

My family and I came to the city on Wednesday night, at around 10:15pm. I had a meeting in town and my family came along to do some sight seeing. We were greeted by a man as we pulled up the driveway who offered to help us with luggage. The front desk staff was amazing! They explained to us that the lobby restaurant would be closing soon and made the bartender aware that we would be coming down shortly to eat. They explained how the parking worked and we were on our way up to the room. The bellman accompanied us up to the room and on the way he mentioned he was also the concierge and asked if we had any questions about the city...we did! He told us of many of his favorite parts of the city and restaurants in the north side of the city. He also mentioned a hop on hop off tour. Very knowledgeable, an asset to your hotel!

The hotel was very comfortable and the kids loved the pool!

The front desk agents, bellman and room service attendant made the stay very enjoyable!

We came for the bed, and will come back for the exceptional service!

The room I had was lovely--spacious, clean, etc. The hotel itself is nice, and includes free wifi which is a great perk. That being said, I found the staff to be not particularly helpful, and the location is a real challenge. You're not close to the T, and the hotel had a hard time in certain cases getting a taxi, even within 10-15 minutes (which seems a very reasonable expectation for a hotel). You're also directly over the highway so even with good windows, there is some noise...
