We stayed three nights at the Quincy Marriott and were able to get a good weekend rate. During the week, the hotel appears to cater to business travelers and then tourists and weddings on the weekend.
The lobby was very nice and the room exactly as depicted in the hotel photos. Housekeeping did an excellent job keeping the room spotless and as expected at any Marriott, the bed was very comfortable. Nice strong/hot shower, even on the 7th floor.
The front desk staff was pleasant and efficient.
Our room over looked the parking lot and we could see the Boston skyline in the distance. Other views included the interstate, office buildings and a small number of green areas. In the higher rooms facing the front of the Hotel you can see Quincy bay in the distance. If you are looking for a scenic view from your room, this hotel would not be a top pick, but that was not important to us.
The hotel was quite crowded on Saturday with weddings, so the main parking lot was full, but we had no trouble finding a space in the adjacent parking garage (all parking was free).
Since the hotel was very full, we had people staying directly next to us. Saturday morning at 1:00 AM and Sunday morning at 2:30 AM, either these folks were very loud talkers or the walls could use some sound insulation. Not a big deal as we fell right back to sleep.
Although we had driven to the hotel, we opted to park the car and use the T to get in and around Boston. As noted in other reviews, the Quincy Adams T station is at the bottom of the Hill from the hotel and we found the $15 MBTA weekly pass to be the best value for a 3.5 day stay.
The only disappointment we had during the stay was the hotel shuttle service to/from the T station. When we arrived, we were handed a card saying the shuttle pick-up/drop-off to the T was 5 minutes past the hour till 9:00 PM, but we found the schedule to be hit or miss. One evening, we arrived at the Quincy Adams T station from downtown at 8:00 PM and called the hotel to let them know we were there. However the shuttle did not arrive until 8:50 PM (we would have walked if we knew it was going to be that long). The shuttle ride is only about 5 minutes and perhaps 15-20 minutes if you wanted to walk. The shuttle goes to other places other than the T station and the front desk said they try to accommodate guest requests as best as possible. I think that is a great policy, but if there is a published schedule, try to stick as close as possible to that schedule as people plan their activities around it. For the 50 minute wait, the front desk did comp us one breakfast for our trouble, which was nice. By the way, if you want to drive down to the Quincy Adams T station from the hotel, the cost is $7 per day. We did just that on our last day.
Wifi or wired internet access is available in the room for 12.95 per day, but you can get free wifi in the Hotel lobby, and there were many comfortable spots in the lobby to sit with your laptop and plug into power if needed.
There were PC’s in the business center which were also available for a price, but it looked like you could at least use one station to print a flight boarding pass for free.
We used the hotel restaurant once (Sunday breakfast buffet) and it was very good.
All and all, a very good stay and we would definitely stay here again.
