    A suitably impressive monument to an intelligent, brave and complicated man. Watching the astonishing mix of videos and memorabilia makes you realise what a loss to 20th century politics Kennedy was,

    Attended the RV show this weekend, easy access to parking. $20.00 for the day of the show. The screening to get in was easy and fast. Ample access to the show floor, bathrooms, and food stations.

    there are timed tours which are limited in the number of people that can attend so sign up early. This is such a wonderful space with great views out of the windows and art and many many wonderful things - like antique grandfather clocks! the tour guide was stupendous with wonderful stories and time for everyone's questions. DO IT!

    Great place the hall itself is well organized the security is very good. The bathrooms are clean and plenty of them. The best part is the location as you are not trapped eating only the food the convention center has, there are some good restaurants around and a food court just outside. Great planning.

    We stumbled across the church she founded first thinking it was a library and was offered a free tour. At first I was hesitant thinking it was a way to convert me. I also mistakenly thought this was the church that didn’t support medical intervention if any kind. I was wrong on both accounts. It was a beautiful place and the staff was informative but not pushy. I learned a great deal and the building in beautiful. Afterwards he pointed us towards the library and mapparium. I liked the Mapparium but felt rushed. It would have been nice to be able to linger a bit more, though they did say that you could do another tour through tour the day for free! I learned about Mary Baker-Eddy who wrote a book, founded the church based in her beliefs which has spread internationally, created a magazine for fair news all at a time when it would have been hard for a woman to do so. She was amazing to learn about! Highly recommend seeing the church and the library!

    When we check into this lounge, the check in agent did not seem to excited to be assisting us. It seemed as though I was interrupting her or preventing her from doing something else. When we got checked in, we grabbed a seat and went to check out our food selection. They had smoked salmon and mini truffle club sandwiches on pita bread. All of the food tasted great. I went to the bar and got a beverage. While the bar was quiet, the bar tender seemed less than excited to help me. The bathroom were a little dirty and needed some updating. The club had a quiet and comfortable atmosphere and seemed clean overall.

    Since we were going to do the Freedom Trail at our own pace, we stopped in to the Visitor's Center on the Commons just long enough to buy a couple of copies of the official guidebook. No problem with the purchases, and then we were off!
    The center is located approximately mid-way along the Common's Tremont Street frontage.

    My wife and I went here for the Boston Flower & Garden Show. Lots of room for the exhibits / booths. Restrooms clean and well-marked. Parking garage across the street was "full" but an attendant outside directly in and we found a spot near the elevator bank. Easy walk from here to a number of restaurants. If there is a show here you want to see, the location itself should not be a problem.

    Give it a 3.5 stars. This isn't a top notch lounge. The bathroom are outdated. There are charging stations and free wifi. Good selection of American food. The food is decent, but I found that the staffs here are attentive and helpful.

    We just finished a land tour. While OAT has excellent travel guides and interesting local activities, they also have a caste system in place. During the trip, travelers are prioritized in order of most traveled with OAT. The hotels are given the priority list and assign the best rooms to the worst rooms in that order. Also, the top travelers receive their room keys first, have their luggage delivered to their rooms first and are called first to board transportation. Unfortunately, my husband and I were last priority on this trip and we just automatically went to the end of the line for everything and called ourselves the 2nd class citizens, even though we paid as much money or maybe more for the trip. At our first stop, our room was in the cellar, with 1 window looking up as people walked past us in a courtyard, had filthy rugs, and paint chipping off the walls, while the top folks bragged about suites with stunning views. We notified our program director that we would not accept such a room going forward and our rooms did improve, but we remained last for everything. Also, while I support and applaud the independent travelers, I found that they were not mindful of couples and would often leave single seating when the group dined together. In most cases, I didn’t eat next to my husband and sometimes not even at the same table. My frustration began to grow towards the end of the trip and we began to be somewhat rude in order to sit together. I agree with the other reviewers that any attempts to contact the company results in hour long hold times and that you have to stay on top of everything as changes are made without you being notified. My jury is out on whether we will travel with this company again.

    Small museum of exhibits dedicated to the history of Massachusetts - with strong focus on settling of Europeans and Revolutionary War. Free and took about a hour to see. On the UMass-Boston campus across from JFK library. There is a free shuttle (Paul Revere- Route 1) from the Red Line JFK/UMass station. Worth visiting.

    Recently visited here for the first time to research my ancestry. There is a large collection of resources available to view and copy. There is a charge to photocopy but no charge for copy to thumb drive. I found the manuscripts very interesting to view. You find the manuscript reference, then bring it to an attendant for retrieval. Very nice service and friendly staff. Large table areas to spread out your work. Membership or entrance fee is required.

    This is an attractive lounge area with a lot of comfortable seating. There are several types of seating so you can work or relax. It has options for a shower and light snacks and a full bar.
    Sure beats hanging out at the gates
