We stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of our holiday in the USA. We arrived an hour before the check in time so we were very appreciative of not being made to wait for our room but being given a complimentary upgrade to a junior suite which we could access immediately. Not only did this mean we had spacious and luxurious accommodation, it also meant we did not have to waste any valuable time waiting for our room - with only two days in Boston every minute was precious to us. We very much appreciated this thoughtful and generous gesture.
The hotel is fabulous. It is spacious and luxurious, but staff are friendly and helpful and we were made to feel very welcome. Our suite was wonderful. The bed was huge! Also extremely comfortable. The bathroom and separate toilet were lovely too, and the sitting area was very nice to relax in at the end of a long day sight seeing. Unlike another recent reviewer, we found there were plenty of power points for charging equipment.
We were a little worried that the hotel would be too far out of Boston to be convenient for us, but as it is just opposite a T station it was ideal and it was very easy to quickly get to and from wherever we wanted to go.
During our stay we managed to fit in a walk on the common, a walk along the waterside past where the Boston tea party took place and along to the South side, a sunset cruise, the 'red line' historical trail, taking in a number of interesting monuments and areas, ending up at USS Constitution, a visit to the JFK museum, not to mention several lovely meals! All in all a lovely end to our holiday, made extra special by the friendly and helpful staff at this lovely hotel. I would thoroughly recommend it.
