This Marriott was a welcome break from the traffic and crowds over in Boston, yet we still felt we were a part of Boston when looking at the eye-popping views of the Charles River and Boston from our window. Although they did not have our room cleaned and ready for us due to some snafu when we got there, they were super at providing us instead with a wonderful full -view room at no extra charge. This hotel is a beautiful modern glass behemoth, 26 floors tall. Besides its escape from Boston crowds and traffic, it features the train right at their doorstep so you can easily hop on the train and get to the center of Boston, and come back anytime you choose. Despite my worry about the possible train noise, there was none that we could detect. Additionally, the hotel features a nice cafe called Champions, which offers friendly service and very good food. We loved this hotel, and could find absolutely no fault until the fire alarm sounded. This would have been okay with us, but it resulted in us being evacuated down 18 flights of stairs with no guidance or comfort. We feel those evacuating should be able to hear the PA system; we ended up going down the 18 floors with a senior who had difficulty walking, and had we heard the announcements, we would have known the evacuation had been called off when we were about half way down. Also, we feel that it would be wise for the hotel to provide an employee in the stairwell to help any person who might require assistance and reassurance. This event would not be mentioned because this is a wonderful hotel, but a week later we heard of someone else who had a similar experience as ours in this same hotel. Would we stay here again? Absolutely, but on a lower floor.....just in case.
