This hotel is in a great location and has a very friendly staff. We arrived early and were allowed to check in as well as arrange for a late check out on our departure day. The hotel also had a small welcome activity bag for our children. The room was on the small size even though we had paid for a "deluxe" room. I really can't imagine how the room could have been smaller so I don't know why it was labeled as deluxe. The HVAC system was quite noisy in the bedroom but there was no exhaust fan in the bathroom. This meant that we were awakened periodically through the night by the air conditioning flipping on, but that the bathroom never de-misted from my family of four's showers. The public areas were nice but small and nothing terribly special. The bar area had a glitzy, dated decor. This wasn't a bad hotel but it was described as a luxury hotel and we paid close to three hundred for the room. Really, the only thing luxurious was the price. There were no perks, the sheets were scratchy, the bottled water in the room was $7 a bottle. If we had paid less, a lot less, I wouldn't find anything critical about this hotel, but given the price and the hotel's description of itself I expected a lot more. Next time in Boston I'll try one of the many other hotels offering rooms at similar prices.
