Cheaper than staying inside Boston. Free shuttle to the metro/sub. Good breakfast (they even customized a sandwich for my gluten free daughter). Decent, clean rooms.
Some of the staff was very nice, but others not so much. While being shuttled to the metro, the driver said we can be picked up anytime we wanted even after 9pm. When we called to be picked up at 7:30pm, the hotel clerk said we need to call a cab it was too late! I quoted the driver and the staff reluctantly said she'd made a one time exception.
Also the staff at the fitness center wasn't very helpful. While my daughters were swimming I asked for pool towels since I couldn't find any near the pool. At first she wouldn't acknowledge me, but when she did she made my daughters and I walk soaking wet back to our room saying we had to use our own towels or go to the front desk.
