For anyplace else to stay. I travel to Boston from time to time for business, pleasure, and to visit family. I am always trying to find that "just right" place. No need to anymore. The inn is beautiful and comfortable and affordable. There is a lot to walk to, and there is easy access to the "T", which makes everything else in Boston easy to reach. The neighborhood is a beautiful residential neighborhood, but just a few blocks from a lot of stores / restaurants / bars, etc... The inn itself is just like "home" if your home is huge, old, classic, and perfectly-maintained. You need to be OK with stairs and walking though, otherwise you will need to look elsewhere.
