The Godfrey was perfect for our overnight stay in Boston. It was convenient, accomodating, excetionally clean and comfortable. There was a friendly atmosphere among the staff and a willingness to help with any questions asked. We especially enjoyed being close to wonderful sites (such as Boston Common Gardens) and restaurants around the city. We would definitely stay at the hotel again.

Literally from the moment the attendant opened the door for us, there were shouts of “welcome” from the front desk. Check in was effortless, they gave clear, useful tips and instructions for our stay, our room was clean and comfortable. Location was good. We asked one of the doormen a question that he couldn’t answer right then, but he told us he would have an answer for us when we came back and he did. Very pleasant stay.

We loved this hotel! The location is primo. Walking distance to Boston Common, Freedom Trail, New England aquarium, subway station, restaurants and the train station. Staff was super friendly. Room was well laid out with a bright and airy feel. Large wall-to-wall windows. Bathroom is spacious with plenty of toiletries. Free snacks and water in the room daily. Bikes you can borrow in the lobby. Would stay again!

From the moment the doors are opened for you, it was a beautiful stay. The front desk was very kind and took care of us. The location of the hotel is PERFECT for exploring Boston. The rooms were very clean, spacious for our family, and the kids loved the snacks. Even though you pay a "city" fee for the snacks and water, I encourage use of the fitness rooms water machine, and the fitness room in general. Also, get your snacks and water daily... You paid for them! It was an awesome stay, and is recommend it to anyone!

We had called ahead to ask for a bigger room and earlier checkin and the staff was very helpful and accommodating. Our beautiful immaculately clean room was ready upon arrival. Great location for walking to historic spots of interest. After an afternoon excursion, we were delighted to find the staff had surprised us with a bottle of wine in the room. The hotel and staff are wonderful. Highly recommended.
