I stayed 7 nights at the Wyndham Boston Chelsea at the end of August. The hotel was excellent - clean room, friendly and polite staff, great location to get in to Boston via the Tobin Bridge. There is street construction nearby, but did not affect us getting where we needed to go. We ate a meal in the lounge our first night, since it was late and we didn't want to have to drive somewhere. The wait staff was very helpful and the food was good. I had a spinach salad that was huge, with fresh spinach and strawberries. My daughter had the veggie wrap - sauteed veggies with cheese in a tortilla, also pretty tasty.
The staff of the hotel was friendly and helpful. Since we were staying for an entire week, we didn't feel that it was necessary to get fresh sheets and towels every day. We left the “do not disturb” sign on the door every other day and weren't bothered on those days. The maids were happy to give us extra coffee packets on the days they didn't come in the room to clean and made sure that we did get service when we wanted it. We also tried out the fitness center. After some difficulty getting my keycard to work, which was quickly taken care of by the front desk staff, we found the equipment in good working order and had a great work out. There was also a TV in the room that helped pass the time on the treadmill.
Breakfast is not included in the price of the room, but there is a small coffee maker and individual "Wolfgang Puck" coffee packets. There is also a small refrigerator and a microwave. We walked to the Stop & Shop a few blocks up Everett and picked up some things for breakfast. We didn't realize until several days into our stay that there is also a Market Basket just a block from the hotel, in the other direction. It was a great place for lunch and snacks – fresh sushi being made on site, plus fresh sandwiches, pizzas, and salads. A Dunkin Donuts right across the street from the hotel made getting a quick breakfast really easy, if we didn't want to take the time for breakfast in the restaurant.
My only complaint would be about the wifi. In our room on the fifth floor, the wifi connection was sometimes iffy. There was a cable at the work desk that allowed a hard line connection, which helped my daughter with her laptop but not me using my smartphone. There are computers and a printer in the lobby which I used to check-in for my flight home and to print out my boarding pass.
Other reviewers have felt that the location wasn't great or that traffic was difficult. True, there is road construction going on around the hotel right now, but that was the only down side to the Wyndham. THE PARKING IS FREE and the drive into Boston is pretty easy - the Tobin Bridge is spitting distance from the hotel and makes getting to downtown Boston quite easy. Getting to the Cambridge/Somerville area was also easy via the Revere Pkwy. Another great reason for us to stay was the discount for longer stays. Stays of three days or more can get you a significant discount, especially if booked well ahead of your trip. I booked through the hotel website and will do so again if I stay at the Wyndham - and now that my daughter is living in Boston I will probably be back.
