I am so glad we took the chance on staying here. The location cannot be beat! We were steps away from Fanueil Hall/Quincy Marketplace as well as the waterfront. Walk to Boston Common and Public Garden about 10 minutes. Parking for the night only cost $12 with validated ticket. 24 hour market a couple of doors down, as well as Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks (which is helpful because the hotel lacks a restaurant). Coffee was ever-present in lobby, which was surprisingly modern and had a high-end yet comfortable feel. I enjoyed the mix of exposed brick from the original building with modern touches! Hotel very clean and relaxed, rooms much bigger than I expected. Beds were comfortable, hot water aplenty, free Hbo... I could go on, but I'm basically rehashing what other have already stated. I would like to say that the pictures on the company's website don't really do this place justice- it appeared nicer in person.
A couple of minor suggestions, which would NOT prevent me from staying here again:
- there are no vending machines or anywhere in the hotel to get something to drink. Not a big deal since the convenience store is on the same block, but it would be nice to get a bottle of water without having to put my coat on.
- garbage left in hallway all day. I saw this is someone else's comment before my trip and noticed the same thing upon my arrival, then saw it later twice after going back to the hotel. Still there the next morning even when housekeeping cart was in the same hallway (she had to have seen it!) Despite this oversight though, everything else was perfectly clean.
