The hotels near downtown were just too pricey, so I branched out a bit and stayed in the La Quinta. Actually considering the free parking, nearby restaurant, and reasonable drive to downtown it was a good deal.
The first room I got was really a neat looking room with a well set up desk and a view from 2 corner windows. The windows overlooked a highway, but the noise really wasn't noticeable. However, the air conditioner conked out and after 2 attempts by the staff to fix it we finally convinced the desk clerk that we needed another room. The next room wasn't as interesting as the first, but the air conditioner worked. The decor was pretty new and the room was very clean.
The bed was large and comfortable.
The room was quite bright with large windows and it only took about 2 seconds to figure out the light switches (not always the case).
The workspace/desk was great. lots of outlets and good lamp. when you have 2 phones, a camera, a laptop and an Ipad all of which need to be charged up there is no such thing as too many outlets.
The TV was big and worked well.
The hotel had a little dorm fridge, but it was big enough for a hotel.
Wifi was free and worked OK.
The bathroom was surprisingly small for such a nice room and big hotel, but it was clean and fully functional.
The hotel had a nice breakfast room and surprisingly given the size of the hotel, it wasn't completely packed.
If you are coming to Boston and don't mind a little drive to downtown, this might be a good choice.
