we stayed at the marriott quincy for one week.
it is a newer hotel with exceptionally fast check in, about 1 minute.the lobbey is very nicely decorated and includes a free business center with email, printer, fax...
the pub had very good food at reasonable prices and the service was quick.
the pool and fitness center were clean and never overcrowded.
the room was clean and had all the expected ammenities.
the maid service was always very good and they had no problem accomodating the varying times we left the room in the mornings.the beds were VERY comfortable.
very good value for the money as it is way too expensive to stay anywhere downtown. (but they will get it back from you if you spend any time at their bar!)
the drinks in the pub and lounge cost about two to three times as much as anywhere else in boston. a single highball with tip will cost you about $11
the hotel is located about 30 minutes train ride from the center of boston. i chose this hotel in spite of it's location as they advertised a free shuttle to the T station and i found out that you can buy a charly (T) pass for one week for $15 which is an amazing value.the first morning we asked about the shuttle and were told it had just left and opperates on the hour. so we walked the 10-15 minutes easy downhill to the station. the next morning, we showed up in the lobby at about 10:55 and waited.....
finally at about 11:20, the driver showed up and drove us to the T. not a big deal, but the trains are about every 20 minutes, so the delays can add up.the next morning, we showed up in the lobby at about 10:55 and waited....finally at about 11:25 i went inside to ask and was told there would be no 11 o'clock shuttle as the driver was taking a break. in a nutshell, the shuttle was extrememly unreliable, but a taxi to the T is only about $5 so it's not the end of the world. just a little frustrating that they will let you sit there and wait when there is no shuttle service.
marriott quincy is a very nice hotel, just don't expect a ride anywhere on their shuttle.
