My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in June. We stayed in the Gold Building, so had free breakfasts and free tapas in the late afternoons. Both were delicious, with a range of items and of good quality.
This was our first trip to Boston and I hesitated to book this hotel, wondering if it was too out of the way. But I loved it! The North End was a fun neighbourhood to wander and it was always buzzing with people. It was easily walkable for us to downtown and Boston Common, amongst other places. And I enjoyed being on the water - walking along the waterfront and the piers.
Our room was a suite - it seemed slightly small for a suite, but was very well-appointed. We had a partial water view and a balcony - although it was too hot to sit out there for very long when we went.
We used the hotel's free bikes a couple of times. What a fabulous way to see so much of the city! We biked along the waterfront and to South Boston and also along the Charles River and over to MIT. We bought a cheap bike lock because the hotel doesn't supply locks and we grabbed a bike map from nearby Urban Adventures.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and to recommend it.
