We stayed here with friends for 4 nights in September and loved the hotel There is not much happening close to the hotel but it is only a ten minute or so walk to Faneiul marketplace, Freedom trail and Waterfront which was fine.
We had a superior room which was very comfortable although not very big and we appreciated the turndown service. We found the staff very polite and helpful especially the 2 housekeeping girls. We didnt use the bar or restaurant so cant comment on them. We were disappointed to find the Sunday Brunch was not on while we stayed as we had heard so many good reviews. The indoor pool was really appreciated we managed to have a quick swim before we set out each day, and we.used to walk down in our lovely fluffy dressing gowns.
I would recommend the 2 day hop on hop tour off if it is your first visit to Boston we did full tour one day including a harbour trip and then just stopped of where we fancied the second day, including trip to Harvard.
All in all it was a lovely stay and would stay again if the price was right.
