Price for the "Boston Area" was about half in town prices. Plus as a rewards member free parking(which in Boston can run $50 a night!) both positives.
Easy to find. Close to Riverside T.
The parking was in a covered garage out back. Traveling alone I felt uneasy returning in the evening.
The elevators! I found 2. You have to take one to get up out the garage, up to the lobby, then up to your room. It was a busy hotel and these were not enough. I was there on a Thursday. I can't imagine what it was like on a weekend. In the morning it was worse as housekeeping uses those elevators as well. I waited a long time that morning(15 minutes)
The floors are laminate, which at first I loved! No gross carpet. But then the upstairs room came back. It was noisy! You hear everything with those floors. So I would suggest asking for top floor.
And my bathroom really had no storage space. A tiny shelf. My makeup bag had no place to go. And the tiles in the shower were moldy. A little bleach would have been helpful.but overall clean with decent bath products.
The TV, very limited channels.
So bottom line, you get what you pay for. The slight inconveniences were worth the almost $300 a night savings on the room. But you have to decide if it's worth it for you. I had a car. That is why the free parking was a big selling point for me. It took about 20 minutes to get into the Fenway area by car from here,
