Neighborhood
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.

Charming and homey, don't let the size fool you. While the hallways may be windy and small, the rooms are well required and eclectically interesting. Recent renovations give everything a very a nicely polished feel, and the location is great for anything in downtown. Having staye

We were assigned a room in the basement so at first I suspected the extremely slow wifi was due to our location however after running SpeedTest in the lobby the speed was the same...less than 1Mbps which is basically useless. Most hotels average 25-80 Mbps.

The location is fantastic and the room was very comfortable but wifi speeds were dismal, less than 2Mb/s. This made even basic emails difficult. I checked multiple devices, in the room and lobby and at multiple times of day/night. I reported this to two, separate staff and they j

I just booked a premium room that is essentially underground, under the first floor. These are advertised as their quietest rooms with very limited view. We are only staying one night don't care about the view. Are these really the quietest rooms or is there a lot of overhead noise? Thanks
What's so "premium" about it? I got a room on an upper level with a window facing a brick wall. It was quiet, but even facing the brick wall, there was limited light. It was one of their least expensive rooms, maybe because it was so small....but it was still pretty quiet.

I am interested in transportation around the city, also from airport and to the cruiseportl
We stayed there last October. Took the Back Bay Logan Express which is bus transport and operated by the city from the airport to Copley Square which is where the hotel is located. Great, inexpensive way to get to the hotel; only $5 per person. The subway system is great to get around town but to get to the cruise port, we took a cab. Not very expensive.You would have to take the subway and bus to get to the port from the hotel. Great little boutique hotel. We enjoyed our stay there. We got to the hotel before check in time and they took our luggage so we could go sight seeing and it was in our room when we returned.

Where is the nearest parking garage?
Sue, The nearest parking garage is Prudential, however, this is going to cost you upwards of $45.00. We offer a discounted rate at the garage on 100 Clarendon street. Once the ticket is validated by the hotel the rate is $28.00. I would suggest dropping your bags off at the hotel and then we can give you physical directions to the garage. If you have any additional questions please call us at 617-247-1212. I hope this information is helpful. Take care, Curtis
