The Ames is a superior hotel and a good price. It has a unique and rich history as a building and has been renovated beautifully. The room was incredible with the decor, views and size. Bed was comfortable and everywhere was clean. The staff was my favorite part- they were all friendly, helpful and welcoming. Breakfast and staff were wonderful....

Reviewed January 9, 2017

Stayed here in June 2016 for 2 nights with my 11 year old daughter. Perfect location. We took the subway and had zero need for a car the entire trip. The location is everything, but the customer service was fantastic. They helped us with directions, got us on our way with complimentary bicycles and allowed us to check in very...

Thank you for visiting us Julie D. We were honored to host you and your daughter while visiting Boston. It was great to hear that our renovations didn't impact your stay, but we are so very excited to share that our lobby enhancement is complete, along with our meeting rooms. We do hope both of you can come back soon...

Visited the Ames with my girlfriend for our anniversary. We had an unbelievable stay. The hotel is simple but elegant. The concierge, valet and front desk staff were all very professional and courteous every step of the way. We had a king suite on the corner of the hotel and had a remarkable view of the city. The room might...

This was a great little hotel in a great location. The rooms are modern and have terrific size closets and bathrooms. We stayed in a Deluxe King and have no complaints. The restaurant was being renovated and I am anticipating to eat here on my next trip to Boston.

Glad we chose Ames Boston Hotel. It is very well located and that makes it easy to go out on the evening and take a walk. Excellent room! It was spacious as well as very nicely decorated.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Ames Hotel. It has a really good location, very comfortable rooms and very friendly and professional staff. In my opinion, the only point to review is the price of breakfast

My husband and I could only get away for two nights. We chose Ames Boston Hotel because of its location. We had a wonderful stay! Ames is in the middle and near most of Boston attractions. Our room had a beautiful view of the "Old State House." The bed was super comfortable and felt luxurious. It's exactly what we needed...

Property has no restaurant and no room service and is essentially a limited service hotel marketing itself as a luxury hotel. Rooms have extremely tiny windows (three windows with approx. dimensions of 15"x30") located at shoulder height. Not worth the stay in the current condition.

Great location next to the Quincy Market and all, but compare to other hilton properties? not so sure it is worth the miney. sub-par breakfast menu and venue. Overall, I would choose else where if I were to visit Boston again.

Although the hotel is undergoing renovations, I lucked into a perfectly sized room with a fantastic bathroom, great amenities (personal loofahs!) and a bed you could sink into.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
