I booked this hotel before really reading many of the reviews. I was afraid afterwards because of its TripAdvisor ranking in the hotels of Boston. I can say that my fears were misplaced. I'd really rate this hotel as "Good" or 3.5 if it were an option, but..no. Therefore the 3 rating.
Check-in was easy and the staff was polite. The rooms could be considered on the small side but were clean - something very important to me. My bathroom was a generous size and its floor grout looked clean and unstained. The beds and pillows were comfortable and not worn out.
The hotel itself seemed old, but maintained. The lobby and front desk are beautiful. The elevators are great; they are fast, smooth, and decently lit. Upstairs, my hallway looked a little dated, but not in an unpleasing way. The wooden door frames on a few of the rooms were superficially deteriorated at the bottoms, but painted nicely.
There is a small breakfast place inside the hotel with a $15 hot buffet. There is complimentary coffee and tea in the morning at the entrance. Also, just north of the hotel on Tremont and Stuart is a Panera Bread and a half block west of that is a Starbucks and 7-11. There is a Dunkin' Donuts another block north at Boylston.
Wifi was included in the room price and presented good signal strength in my room and in the lobby area.
There is a parking garage across the street from the hotel entrance. I didn't have a rental car, but if you do you may want to consider asking about the parking situation and the price.
The location is great and close to so many things. A TripAdvisor review regarding possible safety issues at night is unfounded in my experience.
If you like new and fancy, this probably isn't the hotel for you. If you don't mind a clean, older hotel with smaller rooms, then I recommend the Courtyard Downtown for your visit. I would stay here again.
