My wife, young son and I stayed for one week in mid-July 2009 and had a great experience. We stayed in a one-bedroom suite, which had plenty of room and provided a sense of separation between the bedroom and the living room. The suite is very well designed and utilizes its space extremely well. The kitchen has a refrigerator, sink, microwave and stovetop, and all necessary utensils, pots, silverware, etc. are provided. It was perfect for a one-week stay. The lobby has a Wii system which my son and I played virtually every day, and the free breakfast was well above what I expected.
There were two minor problems. First, the vent in the bathroom sounded like it was a fan that was always on -- the sound is the equivalent of having the person next door in a typical hotel running their shower. The engineer explained that the way that the ventilation system is designed, the rooms on the fourth floor (the top floor) always make that sound. The issue was easily fixed by simply closing the bathroom door at all times, which eliminated all of the sound. The second problem was that the room was not cleaned as well as it could have. Nothing major, just some dust, crumbs, etc. that could have been vacuumed or swept but were not. When we told the front desk they advised that they were transitioning between an outsourced cleaning staff and an employed staff and were working on the problem.
We have stayed at several different extended stay properties in the Boston area, and this one was by far the best. We will definitely return the next time we are in the area.
