Stayed at the Ames for an overnight business trip. As everyone else had said, it's a great, central location in downtown Boston. Easy to get to and from most Boston sites and well situated. It's a small, boutique hotel with a modern and simple vibe. Not cushy but rather spartan and simply appointed with pops of design and wit here and there.
The rooms are small, but have character within the old, historic building. Mine had a huge, arched window which made the small room feel substantially larger. The street noise was very present, however, due to the old window and the 4th floor location.
The room is great if you're traveling solo. If you share the room, be prepared to share your full self -- the bathroom's shower partitions the bed area from the bathroom and it's glass with a sheer curtain. If modesty is your thing, be forewarned.
Live music in the restaurant nightly. Fine and dandy, but there's nowhere to have a business meeting or conversation in the lobby or the restaurant when the performers are on.
Staff were very courteous and friendly.
