My girlfriend and I spent 6 nights in this hotel in Boston. The location is good, just a 5 minute walk from Back Bay station (on Amtrak and T) and in a nice part of town. We stayed in a basic twin room and it was fairly basic. The beds in particular were not very good and felt like we were sleeping on camp beds. It was clean enough and had a desk and closet area to store things, but felt a little cheap. That said, it is the basic twin and I gather that some of the other rooms are better (I can only review the one we had). For the price it didn't feel like desperately good value but then everywhere in Boston is expensive. The hotel itself has a good lobby/lounge area with nice sofas and was light and airy. Wifi throughout the building is always good, but it was a bit unreliable at times, but that seems quite common from a lot of the places I've stayed. Breakfast is included and is quite plentiful with eggs, bacon, sausages, hash browns, potatoes, toast, cereal and oatmeal. Plenty of drinks to choose from as well including tea, coffee, milk, orange, apple, cranberry. They offer an evening dinner which is reasonable price and you get quite a lot for your money. We used shared bathrooms and they were cleaned regularly and were good enough with hot showers. My overall opinion is that if you book a nicer room then you will enjoy your stay more.
