I stayed at the Courtyard Boston Waltham just last night. It had been a very stressful drive to get there, taking more than twice as long as is usual for me, due to heavy traffic on the MA Turnpike. This caused me to miss a seminar that I had registered for, that was taking place at the hotel. The front desk staff was kind enough to take a written message for the seminar leader, and later made sure to inform me that it had been hand delivered to her.
As I checked in, I noticed the lobby to be spacious, with attractive furniture, and very good lighting. The front desk staff were very pleasant, and check in was swift. I had asked for a room near to the elevator when I reserved the room (which I've done before at other hotels, only to find myself in the room furthest away from the nearest elevator!) and was pleasantly surprised when I got off of the elevator and found my room directly across the hall.
The room was huge, and impeccably clean. A king sized bed, sleeper sofa, and large comfy chair and ottoman were my choices to relax and unwind on. There was a large flat screen TV, and a desk, and a window that could actually be opened to allow air in! The bed was very comfortable, with plenty of extra pillows. A Keurig coffee maker with coffee and fixings was available in the room, as well as an ironing board and iron,and a hairdryer.
The bathroom was spotless, and lovely. Shampoo, conditioner, and soaps were offered, and the decor was very pretty. (and did I mention, spotlessly clean?)
There were even written directions in the room, for easy access to local highways. At check in, I was also given a large list of local restaurants to choose from.
The patio, just off of the lobby, was very inviting, and featured a fire pit and comfy chairs.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to either single travelers, or families, as there is certainly plenty of space for a few people in each room.
What a lovely hotel, with warm, caring staff!
