The W Boston should have been better for me, but it's probably my own fault that it wasn't the right fit. I needed a quality room with a comfortable bed to get a good night's sleep on a weekend, but I wasn't prepared for the noise coming from the bar below and from the traffic and street life. My room was even facing the back of the hotel, and the noise was still intolerable. If you're going to stay here, treat it as a nightclub with an attached hotel. It'll help if you are visiting friends who live in the area so that you don't have to spend your whole time in the hotel. Overall, the whole place was just slightly off. It didn't feel like the designers worked well together to synthesize everything. The space in the room felt confused and maze-like. The quality of the furnishing felt like one step up from Ikea. Entering the hotel was awkward because it is in the middle of the block across from one of the worst lower-level mall/office buildings in the city. With that said, the staff was nice, and I have had worse service at nicer hotels. The room service was nice; the food arrived hot with a friendly attendant. Apart from the noise, the only unsettling part of the overall experience was getting a room that someone before me had obviously come in, sat down, and decided it wasn't right for him. The indentations in the bed and a baggage claim check were proof thereof. I'm not so picky as to request that the room be made up again, but you would at least expect them to check a room that someone else has entered and refused. I think that I would probably choose a stuffier corporate hotel over this one unless I was coming to the city to party for the weekend.
