We chose to stay here instead of a private apartment for rent across the street from family renting a condo, due to impending snow, didn't want to deal with on street parking. It was such a pleasant experience that we were glad for the change! The mile and a half didn't bother us a bit. The hotel is VERY clean, beautifully decorated and we were very comfortable. There was enough hot water, our room was always cozy and we were there during single digit weather. It was very quiet at night, little city noise. We appreciated the complimentary water everyday if we used what was there. The bedding was all very comfortable, all the extras, TV, WIFI, Refidge, microwave, mini Keurig,bathrobe, slippers, they thought of everything and at a decent cost. The bathroom is slightly on the smaller side but gorgeous and how much time does one spend there on a trip? Every single staff member we encountered was curtious, helpful and very friendly. Our car was retrieved rapidly when we needed it, always with a smile. We enjoyed returning to the hotel every evening to rest there. Need a place to stay in Boston or Jamaica Plains? You found it!
