This hotel was chosen by friends whom we were meeting for a few days of touring Boston. On arrival, we were impressed by the ambiance of the hotel (contemporary features in a stately building)and the helpfulness of the staff. Our room on the fifth floor was high enough to miss most of the traffic and subway noise - ambulance sirens being the major exception. The room was spacious and well-appointed, and afforded a picturesque view of the Old State House. Once we ventured out, we came to appreciate the true value of the hotel's location: T station across the street, in the center of the Freedom Trail, two blocks from Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, three blocks to waterfront restaurants like Chart House and Legal Seafood, and lots of shops and cafes across the street. The lounge off the lobby is newly opened and still suffering some growing pains: service ranged from over-the-top to bored & ignored, live music was too loud to enjoy a nightcap, has not developed its outdoor patio, and would benefit from hot breakfast offerings and gourmet coffee drinks.
