We were in Boston for a meeting for four days the end of Sept. Because we were SPG, we were able to get a room up a little higher, which was nice. If you want a city view, you have to be higher than the 8th floor in order to see over the convention roof. The city view at night is wonderful! Our room was very nice, but nothing really special. Of course the Heavenly Bed was great, but was disappointed that bottled water was not provided. The lobby is nice and a great place to go and people watch, if you can find a seat. Since this is a convention hotel, there are always lots of people on their laptops and phones sitting around and taking up most if not all the seats. There is also a nice little bar there in the lobby as well as a Starbucks around the corner. For breakfast, there is a nice restaurant on the main floor as well that offer menu ordering or a buffet...although it is expensive. There are also two other restaurants on the main floor that serves lunch and dinner. All the employees we encountered were very helpful and upbeat. We never did use the pool or the gym, so really can't comment on them. They offer both valet and self parking. We self parked, which was both easier and cheaper. The fellas out front were also very helpful in getting us a taxi one evening. The actual parking area under the hotel is a little tight, so would not want to have to park a huge SUV there. Even though this hotel really does not have all the bells and whistles of a tourist hotel, you have to remember that this is a convention hotel, which has a different feel to it. The area around the hotel is just really getting started. There are a few restaurants and a few more hotels,but that is about it. Walking to the historic area is pretty far from this hotel, so if that is what you are wanting to do, you will need to make some different arrangements. But if you have some good walking shoes and the desire to go and walk downtown...by all means do it. It is a beautiful downtown and we really never did feel unsafe...even at night. Go explore!
