The heating/cooling system didn't have a fan that you could turn on manually. We're used to the white noise at home, and it would have masked the noise of other guests going in and out of their rooms while we were trying to sleep. Neither my husband nor I got a very good night's sleep because of that.
We didn't appreciate the $6/beer charge at the concierge lounge, especially in light of the fact that we had paid $50 extra for its use. (I understand charging for the beverages, but charging exorbitant prices was off-putting.) Although, the appetizers and dessert they put out at night were very good, and the continental breakfast was fine.
Every person I encountered who worked there, except for the person who checked us in, went WAY out of their way to be helpful, without being annoying, which I really appreciated. The service is above board.
Our room had a beautiful view, overlooking the aquarium and the harbor, which was our reason for visiting Boston. My three year old son loved the swimming pool, and the health club looked like it had A LOT of equipment. I appreciated the fact that the hotel put out fruit in various places for guests. I also really liked having a Starbuck's in the hotel, and Legal Seafood across the street.
