well kept, family friendly, reasonably accessible, west side of boston metro. a ways from downtown (I did that route by rental car and freeway but there may be heavy rail "T" access to the general area if not the specific hotel.

This is my first time staying in Embassy Suites. It is among my better experiences in staying in a hotel for several nights in a row. Convenience of a suite and friendly staff and housekeeping cleanliness certainly made my stay much worry free than I expected. Certainly one should not compare this to a five star hotel, but for hotels in this style and range, this is the best so far.

The facilities, staff and suite was the best I've every been at. Wonderful experience. The complimentary breakfast had an amazing selection. Jay from the front desk is terrific. The rooms were spacious and the bed very comfortable.

Very clean room with prompt room service. The breakfast was wonderful and everything was clean and properly cooked. The front office staff helped well with directions, though there was some difficulty by my agent in learning how to use the printer. During the happy hour the staff had some trouble keeping up with the demand for the food. Overall experience was excellent!!

Room Tip: Convenient to I-95 and I-90. Just a few minutes to the Riverside T line.

We booked this hotel based on positive ratings it received from various sites and we were not disappointed. Great hotel, excellent food and good service all around. I would recommend it highly. We were in town for a Red Sox game and a general weekend away. We stayed from Saturday to Tuesday. We were checked in quickly and went to our room right away. It was a two room unit with a separate living room with TV and pull out bed and chairs. All rooms seem to front on an open atrium so that was a concern at first but we could not hear a thing once the door was closed. The bedroom and bed were good, usually I have trouble sleeping the first night in hotels but no issues here, the bed was about as comfortable as my one at home. The first night the A?C was noisy when coming on but realized the next morning the bedroom door could be shut and that cancelled out the AC noise the next night. We had the complimentary breakfast each morning and it was quite good, the made to order omelets are very good. It is a quick drive into downtown Boston (15-20mins) and other areas of interest so the distance away from things was not an issue. Overall it was a great place for the money and we were satisfied with the decision to stay there.

Green Features: They offer a $10 gift card to be used for food or Wi-Fi access if you skip having the room serviced each day. We did that the 3 days we were there and used the coupons for lunch in the restaurant.

Stayed here 2 nights, family with preteen and teens.

PROS:
Spacious, clean room; nice long bathroom counters; 2 rooms in suite, 2 TVs, connecting room with another family, firm sofa bed, nice hot breakfast, loved the made to order breakfast, nightly welcome reception was just okay, free parking

CONS:
Slow elevator, elevator buttons did not work when we were there, can be loud if lots of groups in the hotel as the middle is open area and sound travels; pillows were just okay; weak wifi

OTHER:
About 30 min to get to Boston, but off major highway so easy to get on and off. Most Boston hotels you have to pay $$ for parking.

Will stay here again.

I really love this hotel! It is a bit expensive for me, but the rooms are spacious and clean, customer service is great and the breakfast is awesome! The glass elevators are gorgeous and fun and the pool and hot tub are clean and roomy! My only real complaint is that wifi is not included and is expensive to add. Still....perfect for a family vacation, business trip, or romantic get away! I wish I could afford to come more often!
