We booked two rooms for college tours - promising to be a beautiful hotel in a lovely location - was nothing but. Our rooms were extremely hot, the air conditioning filter was absolutely fitly and not working properly. The cable channels were having a dispute - hence we wanted to watch the swimming race for the Summer Olympics. We called... More

Thanks for sharing your experience. So sorry about the AC, will get that looked into ASAP. As for the cable channel, unfortunately that was something beyond our control and was a dispute with a local channel and the larger service provider. Your feedback is not typical, so thank you again for sharing so we can address. Joe Capalbo General Manager... More

I have stayed here several times on work trips. This is a fantastic hotel. From reception staff, to the room to the bar and lounge everything is done with that touch of class. It is attached also via underground car park to the Galleria Mall, which is great in the Boston winter when you don;t have to go outside to... More

A hotel with extra amenities and great service. The rooms were spacious, and nicely decorated. Bath robes with extra flair in the rooms. Wine reception was an added plus. Would recommend as an unique place with added touches. Enjoyed our stay for a weekend visit in July.

We stayed at the Kimpton for two nights in August. The hotel is very clean and well decorated. Staff are professional and attentive. Our room was on the 7th floor, facing the entrance courtyard. It had a king bed and the size of the room was nice for the two of us. The hotel is only 8 stories high and... More

Warm welcome upon arrival. Great bar and restaurant. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and modern, with the usual facilities. A few things are missing, - coffee/tea facilities - liquid shower gel (I don't like a bar of soap) The rooms are not very well soundproofed, so you do get some noise from outside and inside....

Friendly lobby-- we always have a nice chat during the free energy hour from 5-6. There are nice places to sit and enjoy the artwork inside and out.

The entrance to the Hotel inside and outside is quite grand. There is a giant rotating metal sculpture with a large projection of the olympics as you pull in. The parking is not cheap but compared to the other hotels it is a great deal. A doorman will always open the front door and there is a very plush and... More
