“Excellent stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Beautifully appointed hotel with good service. Good location. A little annoying that you need to become a member to get wifi with no charge, but not the end of the world (the hotel already knows you). Staff are friendly and helpful.

Overall well worth the price for comparable hotels and locations.

Room Tip: Stay on higher floors if you have a road side room.

Dear mongolovestogo,

Mongo - I promise you are no pawn in the game of wifi! We certainly do not want to annoy you with the process but we don't want you to miss out on the huge benefits of the InTouch program. PLUS now whenever you stay at a Kimpton - we will know who you are AND what you like. Only not as weird as that sounds.

Happy travels,

Mark

Kimpton does a great job at keeping their properties on brand- all unique but plush, chic and always inviting. The room we were in was very large, the furnishings were high quality, the bed extremely comfortable, and the views stunning (but still very quiet). I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a modern gem in the heart of the city - without the 5-star price tag or stuffiness of some other hotels in the area.

Book it- you'll be very happy with your stay. Have some free wine! =)

Dear clutchbomb,

I think you've hit what Kimpton is trying to do as a brand - unique but comfortable; chic but caring....and let's not forget the wine. And with summer and winter come a few additional surprises - like hot toddies at night and hot cocoa in the morning.

Regards,

Mark

Superb location, helpful staff, comfortable bed, spacious restroom, wonderful views, fun and comfortable lounges. The room sent off vibes of relaxation that, within minutes, had me forgetting about the very stressful travel day I had experienced. Nine Zero is within easy walking distance of the Common, the North End and more. Highly recommended.

Dear my$.02,

"Vibes of relaxation". I'm calmer just reading that. Glad we could help end your day on the right note. Hope to see you again soon.

I stayed here in January when it was exceptionally cold in Boston -16 with windchill. Anyway the Nine Zero is a very good hotel in a very good location. The service was great and the staff were very professional and attentive. Food was pretty good. Rooms were nice with super comfy beds. It's very near Boston Common and close to most attractions and very close to the commuter rail, roughly 3-5 min walk. I'd recommend this place to most, would suit business, solo travelers, couples and families. It's also quite trendy or at least gives the impression that it is. I prefer this hotel over the Hyatt and Hilton.

Dear Tony S,

"Sixteen below with windchill"? - that doesn't sound like Boston in January at all. Okay...so it is. But it is always 70 degrees at Nine Zero. But since you have to go outside every once in a while that proximity is definitely a big plus.

Thank you for staying with us.

Stay warm,

Mark

stayed at Nine Zero for a long weekend - great location - wonderful view from our 17th floor room. a bit pricey, but the bed was so comfortable. The mini bar was full of expensive stuff - we asked if we could take a few things out to add our own cokes & milk - they said no problem.
We walked to Quincy Marketplace. The hotel is close to Sam Lagrassa's - which was yummy!

Dear tbear21Denver,

I have been trying to get Sam Lagrassa's onto our brochure for years! Best sandwiches in town, if not the universe. As far as the minibar goes - if you need anything in order to make your stay more comfortable - just ask (as you did!).

Mark

We stayed here for an anniversary trip. The staff was very helpful in arranging accommodations and even gave us a complimentary bottle of wine. The rooms may be a bit smaller, but they're well stocked and comfortable. We had to stay an extra night due to Hurricane Sandy and the staff held a hurricane party for the guests. It was nice to see them go the extra mile for all of us waiting out the storm.

Dear magpiered,

Thank you for weathering Superstorm Sandy with us! Surely the only rough seas on the voyage of your marriage...and it was solved so easily with wine and beer. Happy belated anniversary.

Hope to see you again soon.

You can't do better than this if you want to be central - steps away from the start of the Freedom Trail. The hotel is as you'd expect from Kimpton, quite buzzy and stylish but still friendly. We were there during Hurricane Sandy and they organised movies and an extended wine hour whilst we were stuck in watching the rain go past - I thought this was a great touch. Breakfasts and room service meals were good quality and the service was always friendly.

Yes, it's expensive. But you get what you pay for!

Room Tip: Scollay Square restaurant round the corner is great for casual family meals.

Dear Esmum984,

Thank you for waiting out the Storm That Shall Not Be Named with us. Huge gusts of wind aside - there's nothing like curling up watching movies on a rainy day. We were happy to help everybody settle in and relax during what is definitely a stressful time. Hopefully we'll see you again in sunnier times.

Best,

Mark
