I picked this hotel for its proximity to my meetings in Boston and I was very pleasantly surprised by the decor. The hotel was renovated with a pleasantly modern vibe and luxury that made me feel that I was in a loft more than a hotel room. From the robe to mini bar and all the amenities that you would...

Really well located and overall a good choice for a stopover - but you leave Ames with a strange feeling... May be its the fact that the restaurant is closed for renovations and the interim dining room feels more like a second-grade airline lounge.. May be its the fact that there's no lobby or shared space to spend any time...

Lovely boutique hotel in great location beside Quincy Market. Really nice rooms. Would definitely stay here again. We didn't have breakfast here so I can't comment on this but there are plenty of places nearby to eat.

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...

Hotel was good overall- location is fine- the most memorable thing we're the ladies at breakfast. Food itself very limited- but the service from them made it a daily event for me. Coffee to go- paper- smile- what more can you ask to start the day! (Better food selection- that's all!)

We stayed here for 5 nights and have only good things to say about it. We had a very comfortable, well-appointed suite. The decor was lovely, there was a huge bathroom as well as a powder room, and lots of space throughout. The ceilings were very high and the windows were arched and huge. Comfy bed and dark & quiet...

Stayed here with my boyfriend for 6 nights over the new year period. The check in process was smooth and the staff were friendly. We stayed in room 505 on the corner with amazing views of the old court house. The room was clean and spacious, it did need a few touch ups here and there but nothing major. As...

Nice hotel in a great location, walking distance to Fanueil Hall . We stayed there to go to a Celtics game .Then out on the Town. Spent the night checking out places around Fanueil Hall. The hotel was modern , but the charged you for all the little extras, make sure you bring everything you need.

This hotel is one of my all time favs in Boston!! It's super clean, hip, yet modern! Our favorite part of this room is ALL of it! From the hardwood floors to the "sexy shower" everything about the Ames rocks!

Great Location. Near Fanueil Hall and Government Center. Walk to North End is only 7 to 8 minutes. Nice hotel in an older building. Rooms small but nice. Staff is excellent. Would be nice if they offered a free breakfast.

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.
