Like some of the other reviewers, I reserved my room through a consolidator -- asking for a single for two weeks from Christmas into January -- knowing I needed to be near the airport. I was surprised when I pulled up to the hotel because the last time I stayed here, it was a Holiday Inn. This time I was booked into the midrise on Harbor Boulevard, but my room faced the plaza between the hotel and the parking structure. My room appeared to have been pieced together from some storage space and was *huge* with an attached dressing room leading to a separate bathroom. I had two queen beds and since I was solo, I chose to sleep in the one closest to my two banks of windows. Facing southeast, I had a chance to keep track of night life running back and forth between the restaurant (in the next building south) and the bar (in my building). Excellent if you like to people watch. Unlike what some other reviewers complained about, the lobby and front-of-building staffers helped me pack and unpack my rental car, helped me retrieve a bellman's cart, and assisted me when I tried to take it though the revolving door in front (yes, that was a stupid move). Btw, I made two trips to Boston during my stay and got to know all the shuttle drivers as well. Everyone treated me with respect, and I returned the favor as best I could. If I had something to whine about, it would be about the Wifi. It was weak back when this hotel was a Holiday Inn, and it's weak now. But given the size of the property, a network engineer is needed to solve the problem.
