“Great Location for Hospitals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

I stayed in the hotel while my friend had surgery and you can't beat it for convenience. Parking is attached to the hotel and you can easily walk to several hospitals. The staff was helpful and I was able to store my bags the last day while waiting for my friend to be discharged. The continental breakfast was small but adequate, and the service was quick which is important if you need to eat and get to the hospital. There are many restaurants within walking distance, too. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

This hotel is very centrally located if you have business to do around the Harvard Medical Campus - everything is in walking distance. Yet this is almost the only positive about this hotel - apart from the very friendly front desk staff. The rest of the hotel is not worth mentioning - tired rooms, filthy bathroom with mold on the ceiling, dirty carpets that have not been vacuumed for a while...really nothing to brag about. I stayed in a room with as tiny window out to the food court - for 200USD & tax extremely overpriced. Would definitely choose another hotel next time!

This was the 3rd time I've stayed at this hotel while attending a medical conference. It has never been great but it is VERY convenient. However this time it was horrible. The duvet cover had an offensive order and the extra blanket in the closet smelled of urine. The staff was not helpful at all and I was even told that they couldn't call a taxi for me because it was Saturday and the taxis don't respond to their request on Saturday. I left out of the hotel and went up the street as instructed to hail a taxi with no luck and eventually walked back to the front of the hotel where two taxis were sitting there just waiting on customers. I will have to try another hotel the next time I come and forfeit the convenience

We stayed here for a month due to a family emergency at one of the hospitals in Boston. The staff at the front desk were excellent at making sure we had a room during a busy time at the hotel.

It is located very close to Children's hospital and Brigham and Womens hospital.

It's also attached to the Longwood Grill restaurant, whose friendly staff, and good drinks and food were a welcome break after a day in the hospital.

The rooms are clean and quiet!

A great place to stay!

I stayed at this hotel for a conference I was attending nearby. The staff were friendly and helpful and retrieved the several parcels I had waiting for me.

The food court on Level 2 is really convenient and you can get a decent meal for a reasonable price.

The room was spacious, well furnished and tastefully designed. Bathroom is clean and toilettries are provided.

I paid a special conference rate and it was certainly value for money!

Room Tip: If you must have a quiet room, request for one away from the Housekeeping store.

We have stayed at Best Western Plus Boston twice now when attending a Sox game. It is a very clean hotel and the staff is always very friendly and helpful. It is a short walk to Fenway and the subway. The adjacent parking garage makes it very easy to get in and out of. Next trip to Boston we will definitely be staying at the Best Western.
