This is the 3rd time I've stayed at this hotel for business in the last 4 years. What I like about it is they have a shuttle service that drops you at Sullivan Square Station at the top of the hour. It is literally a 5 minute ride (but not one that you should walk as it's not the best area as you near the station). Then it is only 3 stops to Quincy Market. They will also pick you up from Sullivan Square Station at 10 minutes past the top of the hour until 10:10PM. Taking a taxi back to the hotel is about $6 if you don't want to wait for the shuttle. This area is in the middle of a big change with an outlet mall being build within walking distance and a new high-rise apartment building being built on the other side of the shopping center with some nice amenities such as a walking path on the Mystic river and even a little stage with cement tier seating.
As for the hotel, it is typical of a business travelers hotel. The room was fine, the air conditioning / heater was louder than I like and kicked off and on all night. I eventually turned it off entirely. The bed was comfortable and the room clean.
One kind of disappointing thing happened at check in. I was travelling with two young, male colleagues. I went to the desk first to check in and got my usual room request as outlined in my profile. My colleagues were helped by a different desk clerk and when we all regrouped to head into the city, they informed me that they had both received free upgrades to a suite. Was just a little bummer for me.
