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.

Overall a good hotel, but could use a room and hallway refresh. Everything was clean and all. Gym was above average (exercise balls need air), doorman and morning front desk were excellent. They do offer some complementary breakfast snacks along with coffee.

Love the rooftop bar and close to everything. The hotel was clean and the staff was accommodating. It is right across the street from a mall. We did the Duck Tour and that was okay...fun city - try to get to Rockport, that was our favorite place to stay.

Worst hotel in Boston. 0 hospitality, lazy employees, no professional at all. I’ll always remember what the doorman said to me “yesterday was yesterday...” I’ll never recommend this hotel to anyone, poor service !! You’ll never keep your customers safe that way !!!

The room was clean and spacious. The location was great for my business trip. I was properly greeted when I arrived by two pleasant, friendly young women. I would definitely stay here again. Good internet speed also. Did not use the pool as I was there on business and it was

Minimum check in age?
I don't think so as there were a number of families at the breakfast that had young children with them. To be completely sure, I would give the hotel a ring as the natives are very friendly!!!
