My brother and I stayed here during a weekend event at MIT. You can tell it's an old building by the somewhat narrow hallways and the fact that there is only one elevator. While the hallways are narrow, it doesn't feel claustrophobic at all. Our room was nice; the decor is charming. Our bathroom was a good size, and there was plenty of space to put your things down. I hate it when hotels don't have anywhere for you to put your clothes while you're in the shower - where do they want us to put them, on the toilet seat!? Ew. That wasn't a problem in the bathroom here - they had a nice big shelf over the sink, as well as an old chest-type thing to set stuff on. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and our room was nice and quiet.
The only things the hotel room was missing were a fridge and extra outlets to plug electronic gadgets into. Maybe this is just a factor of the age of the building, though.
Free wifi and free breakfast were great perks. The breakfast was excellent - lots of food choices (eggs, bacon, waffles, pancake, cereal, fruit, toast, pastries...) and the staff keeps a close eye on it to make sure everything is stocked and fresh.
Speaking of the staff, everyone we encountered was very courteous.
Lastly, the location is great! We didn't rent a car, so we took MBTA from the airport to the hotel. It's only about a one minute walk from the subway station to the hotel, and less than 5 minutes away from MIT. There are several restaurants to choose from within walking distance as well.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to people looking for something a little bit different than the usual big chain hotels.
