I've stayed at this hotel twice. Both times were for business and this was the meeting location. Rooms were reserved here for this conference. I was looking forward to this trip since I had not been to Boston and I was going to be staying in a Marriott (I'm a Marriott Rewards member so needed the points). When I checked into the hotel, the lobby seemed small for a Marriott, and looked old, but nonetheless clean with a friendly front desk staff. After entering my room on my first visit, I was shocked to see how SMALL the rooms were (a small narrow path around the bed). No closet, just a narrow armoir along the wall, a desk against the window. All that said, I still found a place for my luggage, and all my belongs for a week's stay. You just have to be creative about being organized in a very small room.
After asking the staff why Marriott, known for upscale rooms cannot perhaps make the rooms larger, (and why didnt they when they acquired and renovated the building). They told me that the building was a former lodging facility for some group and the rooms were dorms and the building is an historical structure so it can only have minimal renovations (the historical society was very particular on moving walls, enlarging the rooms....or something like that). Okay, okay, whatever, BUT......
If you are going to Boston, I WOULD recommend this hotel, based on cleanliness, the very friendly staff, and the proximity to EVERYTHING. You are in walking distance of the Freedom Trail, an absolute MUST for patriotic Americans. Theaters (plays, concerts, stand-up acts, movies), shopping, dining, history, haunted tours, pub crawling, the harbor, Boston Commons, Cheers, you name it, you can walk to it all from this hotel. There are a few access points to the underground subway within a 5 minute walk from the front door. If you want to spend a lot of time in your room while in Boston (shame on you if you do) and dont want to take advantage of this awesome city, then by all means, spend the money to upgrade to a king suite, or just stay some place else.
