This hotel is perfect! The public transportation was just outside and another station a 4 minute walk away (which worked perfectly on the weekend). We parked our car and used the public transportation to get everywhere easily with no parking problems/city driving. The hotel is gorgeous! Everything is brand new and very, very cool/tastefully decorated. The staff couldn't be nicer. We walked to the Boston Fine Arts Museum easily and took the train down to Boston Commons, Harvard Square, etc. There is also a beautiful park just across the street (out the back entrance) that has trails, ducks and is just a wonderful piece of nature in the city. Also the bedding is to die for with feather top beds and such soft sheets. This place was awesome! Also don't miss the amazing soup restaurant by the Brookline Village t-stop (4 minute walk) called New England Soup Company for a perfect winter meal. Bliss! I can't wait to go back to the hotel and restaurant.
