My only complaint is that the price seemed high, but I think most of Boston hotels double their prices in May when tens of thousands of students are graduating all over the greatest Boston area. I was there for my daughter's Tufts graduation and Homewood Suites was just a bit more than 1 mile away. Parking is not fun in Boston, so I mainly went everywhere by foot, bus, and subway, though I did take advantage of the hotels' FREE ample parking (unusual!), where I left my rental car almost the entire time. Davis Square, a great area with many restaurants, bars, movie theater, etc. is a very pleasant (maybe half-mile?) walk away. Downtown Boston is a bus ride and subway ride away.
The hotel itself had everything I needed. The suite had a small sitting room/kitchen area, and the bedroom. The sitting room had a fold-out couch. Two TVs. Both a pretty good, varied daily breakfast, and a so-so dinner (Monday through Thursday) are included in the room rate. There is a laundry room and an exercise room. I would definitely stay at Homewood again.
