We chose this hotel because it was within walking distance to Boston University. The hotel itself has been completely refurnished and is in wonderful shape. I love the Frette linens on the beds. The in-house bath products are made by Fresh, one of my favorite bath products. I left some clothes in the room after I checked out and the hotel sent them back to me at my home. There are two restaurants on the premises. The Island Creek Oyster Bar was really a hit for the evening...many varieties of fresh oysters and great clam chowder. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and brought us six varieties of oysters. Everything he told us about the flavors of the oysters was correct! A very fun culinary experience. Eastern Standard was very tasty for breakfast. The morning coffee bar serves a delicious Illy coffee.
