I picked the Lord Jeffrey Hotel because of it's proximity to UMass Amherst. I came from California and wanted to be as close as possible so I could check my daughter into school and help her as needed. The only good thing about this hotel WAS the proximity! We arrived with several pieces of luggage (College stuff) One weighed almost a 100 lbs. There was no bellman to help and our room was down three flights of stairs(no elevator) I never would have picked this if I knoew I was going to lug the suitcases myself. It was almost impossible. We were told the college was within walikng distance and asked the front dest if this was true. He said yes so we walked, and walked, and walked. We made it there but were vey tired. Then we saw a bus go by. We asked someone and they told us the bus was free and one on the stops is right next to the Lord Jeff Hotel. I can't beieve the man at the front desk forgot to give us that minor detail! There was a wedding right ouside my french doors (so loud I couln't hear the TV.) The restaurant was awful , service was nonexistant.
My best advice for anyone staying at this hotel is BEWARE!
