The hotel itself was pretty bad, the shower was really old and the bottom looked like it hadn't been cleaned properly. There was water damage in our room and it was really cold at night. The pictures on their website seem to either be false advertising, or we got a really bad room!
There were 2 good things about this hotel. 1) The location is great. It is down a weird alley/street, but it is right next to the John Hancock tower (you will never get lost!), and right by Copley Square which has a T stop, and numerous shops and restaurants nearby (including the posh Newbury Street). 2) The staff were very friendly and accommodating.
