They could have taken an old jail and been really cheesy about it, but instead they pull it off just right, with a balance of preserving some history and being clever.
Clever? The DND tag is a key that says "solitary." The restaurant is called clink (nice double entendre). The bar is "Alibi" and I can't even count how many entendres that one is.
Point is, it's actually fun and not forced. And the hotel is very comfortable. Starwood comfort and finishes that I would expect in the Luxury Collection hotel. The location is great... right at the Charles/MGH T stop. Very easy walk to Government Center, the Public Garden, Beacon Hill and even Cambridge.
The gym was small, but functional. Food in the restaurant was very good and service the entire time I was there was friendly and prompt. The price point may scare some off and, if you're only going to use a hotel for the bed, this might not be your place. That said, I was here for business meetings and spending time in the hotel was a must... and would look forward to coming back to this property.
