“Decent hotel. Green-washing?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

This hotel was just fine for a short stay - the beds were comfortable, staff was friendly and the breakfast was a bit better than the standard continental. Nothing wrong with the hotel, just nothing fantastic. Business centre open all night and the internet was very fast. Wifi was free, nice!
The one thing that I didn't like to see was what I'd call some green-washing. The hotel has big colourful cards on the beds saying you're contributing to a better environment by re-using sheets and towels, fine. But then you go downstairs to the breakfast and everything (EVERYTHING) is served on styrofoam. Not so eco-friendly in my mind and certainly not worthy of saying "we're so environmentally friendly". Opportunity for improvement!
(skip the 99 restaurant across the street - the food was lousy and the staff rude until it came to tipping time!)

Good restaurants are within 2 miles in a shopping center. Be sure to check directions to hotel carefully, there are a lot of unmarked one-way roads in the area. We had to use a phone gps to get to the hotel the first time.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

the hotel is a bit far from the center of boston. the price is very reasonable, the room was quite big and clean. the shuttle bus is very convenient for the near by hospital, the metro station and the airport and it is free of charge. the personel was very kind and helpful. breakfast that was included in the price of the room, was not something special and the thing i personaly did not like was that everything was served in disposable cups and plates.
