Other than that, there is nothing so special about it. Booked there to catch the 4th firework over the Charles. Which was really nice. We were told we can go to the rooftop for the show on the night of when we book, but found out on the day that the rooftop has a private event happening.
The hotel is marketed as a cool hip place certainly for the younger crowd. There are several bars on the premises with waitresses wearing very mini skirts. Nothing classy about it. But the place was crowded those night we were there. There is even a Happy Hour on certain day of the week for pet owners to get together and mingle.
The room we had was small despite asking for a suite. The amenity is OK. There is no Nespresso machine or anything to that effect in the room. There is a coffee cart in the lobby every morning to compensate. Coffee was bad quality and ran our at time.
Location wise, it's nearby the T stop, walkings distance to a very nice Wholefood and some decent restaurants. Being an out of towner, noticed the several hospital concentrated within the area. Wonder why historically. Also given that the heightened security issue after the Boston Marathon bombing, most of the roads around the area were closed off during the 4th event, so we spent a lot of time looping around trying to get out or back to the hotel after our outings. And if you're not familiar with Boston, the road is confusing and the GPS system is helpful (but not when the roads are closed off for security reason!)
Been there and done that...no desire for a return to this hotel.
