“Just what you'd expect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

Again a review that should be a half lower, but we can't factor in 1/2 ratings. Since their we're really no gotchas, rated it higher.

Location is not bad, but the shuttle from the Airport took forever to pick me up, we'll over an hour wait. Restaurants are about a half mile walk, and serval choices which are very good.

Room was as expected. Breakfast was okay, but the oatmeal was prepared very poorly. Managers reception did not include any drinks, which was a bit disappointing. Again the overall rating is a little high.

Stayed on an upper level floor, no noise issues that I noticed. Front desk staff did a good job. Would consider staying again when in Boston.

Stayed here for a 5-day business trip to Boston. All in all a decent venue.

Positive: Nice clean and spacious rooms, comfortable beds, big bathrooms, great service, good location (not far from Fenway park, about a 15 minute bus ride to downtown), shuttle service from the airport.

Negative: Very loud (you hear the traffic from the 2 crossing streets and ambulances that go in and out of the nearby hospital), pricy (about 1100$ for 5 nights), not the best breakfast buffet, had a stain on my bed sheets one day after they were changed in the morning.

Not the best 3-star hotel I have stayed at, but ok for a short trip.

We were staying in Boston for a medical appointment and this hotel was great. Good location near hospitals and to 90/93. The free breakfast was good, rooms comfortable and the pool room light and clean.
Although they didn't have a refridgerator for us they stored our baby milk for us and gave us milk when we needed it. Very helpful. Will stay here again.

For value and service, it just can't get any better than this particular Hampton Inn. The expected breakfast was excellent with enormous variety and attentive staff. (We tip the food service staff--you should too!) We travel close to the ground--pack light, take public transportation, and walk.
This hotel is a scant two blocks from the SL4 T-line bus, a breeze to get to and from downtown. The Cambridge/ Harvard Square bus stop is right across the street. We were greeted warmly at registration and provided a better map that we had purchased earlier. Every employee was cordial and courteous. Then the pleasant surprise of a manager's reception every evening--call it dinner! Can't wait to get back to Bahstn and the Hampton. Excellent shuttle service, too.

Room Tip: Good views from seventh floor. Occasional siren sounds from nearby NE Medical Center, but not an is...

While I am not new to the Hilton experience, this was my first stay at this venue. I was very pleased with the service and cleanliness of this location and will ceretainly return in the future
as needed. Right off of interstate 93 it is very convienently located and makes it very easy for quick in and out of town

Room Tip: try for close to elevators, some rooms can be quite a walk

The hotel is very close to BU which is why we stayed here. Shuttle service is very helpful not just to the airport but they dropped us off in the north end too. Breakfast is what you expect from Hampton inn, a lot of options and plenty. They also had free dinner but we did not try. The location is not very nice or safe in the night but its no different from any other big city. The staff are helpful esp. George. Only negative issue was they billed me more than they should have and when I called they kept putting me on hold and then informed me the 'controller' was gone for the day. Later it was rectified and they apologized. Overall its a value hotel in the middle of Boston with friendly staff and shuttle service. I will stay again if I was in the area.
