We stayed at the Inn for a week long trip to Boston. A short 20 minute taxi ride from the airport and we arrived at the Inn.
We had never stayed anywhere like this before......access is gained by keying in a code emailed to us prior to our stay.....this allows access to the front door and to your room. There is no check in desk or process, you simply make your way to your room.
Our room was adequate and comfortable with a four poster bed, ensuite shower room and mini kitchen containing everything you could need to cook meals should you wish to.
To be honest the Inn doesnt feel like a hotel, you rarely meet other guests unless you partake of the complimentary breakfast or coffee beside the office on the ground floor. Your room is not serviced daily unless you hang a request note on your door before 10pm previous night. So if you dont like making your own bed this place is not for you.
That said we enjoyed our stay, the lack of visable staff and having to make the bed ourselves occasionally was well and truly outweighed by the ability to come and go as we pleased, the comfort of the room and the close proximity to the Prudential Centre etc. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful when needed and I would have no hesitation in recommending the Inn to anyone planning a stay in Boston.
The only negative we had was the noisy pipework, sounding like someone banging on the wall with a hammer, that happened at various times throughout the day but always at 3am ......we were only just getting used to the noise when we were leaving.....we stayed in room 104 and I assume other rooms werent affected by this noise. So if booking ask for an another room.
