Jordan did a great job with our IHG platinum upgrade. He actually called me after our initial conservation. The hotel is in a safe area and looks like it has been remodeled recently. The only negative is the double doors do not open automatically and it is difficult to get your cart loaded with bags through the doors.

We had a block booking for a wedding and stayed for 3 nights. Hotel is fairly basic but clean and modern. Free breakfast was good and varied from morning to morning. Pleasant staff. The group rate was good. Plenty of local restaurants and bars.

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times and have always found it to be clean, quiet, convenient and comfortable. The staff is helpful and pleasant.... More

Everything was great. Breakfast was delicious, the employee in charge, Maria made sure to make us feel at home. She made my stay less stressful. Plus the dining area was always clean. Thank you Maria. Wish there was more people like her

I had stayed as part of a group for business. When we checked in the night before we had told them we needed to be out by 5:45 am. Maria had laid out breakfast and coffee for us by 5:30 am. So much appreciated!

Nice hotel booked thru Hotwire. Hotel has several parts- almost feels like a couple of older hotels brought together. We we were in a wing that seemed older but nicely redone- low ceilings and the queen beds were a tight squeeze. Bathroom also tight. Nice breakfast room- not real busy so the hot food was sitting and was on the... More

We have been guests here a number of times of the years. In the past year or so, they've done a lot to update the public areas and the guest rooms. Everything looks fresh and new. Reception staff were welcoming. Housekeeping had one slip up (an ice bucket full of water from the previous guests) but the room was otherwise... More

Located in the Boston suburb of Waltham, this is a quiet and beautiful place to stay. The hotel sits atop a small hill overlooking a lake. The view is wonderful. The staff was friendly. My room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit cramped and would be difficult for two people to navigate. Overall, this is a nice... More

I have been there almost every week since March on business. Yes a few mishaps here and there but for the most part almost always a brilliant stay. Clean comfortable rooms, decent breakfast (thanks Maria for always getting me a plastic bag so I can have it to go!). Very convenient location, restaurants close by as well as highway and... More
