This Courtyard is good. Modern décor and well appointed from lobby to the rooms. Very clean and efficient. Staff is polite and helpful and more than happy to help even if not part of their job.
Very convenient access to I-93 (main North/South highway through middle of Boston).
The area/neighborhood around the hotel is a little "iffy". I was warned by the locals (taxi drivers, business colleagues, etc.) to be careful walking in or through the local neighborhood, especially at night.
On one evening, walking back from the nearby T-station (Boston's name for its subway system), noticed drunks harassing people and some aggressive homeless panhandlers. Understood why even later in the night why it could be a problem.
The cleaning staff, why very good at cleaning the rooms, lobby, etc., noticed the elevators always seemed to take a long time. One morning, I noticed while waiting for an elevator, these 3 cleaning staff came into the elevator waiting area, and they pressed both the UP and DOWN buttons.
Elevator showed up going UP. None of them got in. I thought they didn't realize elevator had showed up so I told them an elevator had shown up. They said they were going DOWN. I asked, "Why did you press the UP button then?". Their response: we push BOTH buttons regularly to get an elevator faster.
At this point, I shut up. Figured trying to explain to them that all they've done is SLOW down the elevators for EVERYONE would be pointless.
This is a good hotel overall, just be aware of the neighborhood surrounding it.
