This is a good hotel, with well decorated public area and room. The room I had was very quiet and comfortable, but I wish that the hotel had a room with two double beds, because I stayed over with my son while attending a family gathering and I ended up sleeping on the pull out sofabed at least one night. That would not have been an issue if we had two beds.
The hotel is not far from downtown Boston, but it helps to have a car to at least get you to the train/trolley lines. You can then take them into Boston itself and avoid having to park in the expensive downtown areas.
The hotel rate was a bit cheaper, probably due to not having a free breakfast. The Bistro served a good breakfast, but the prices of most items canceled out the savings on the room. I had the hot oatmeal and was pleasantly surprised with how many things I got that I could add to my oatmeal (milk, nuts, cranberries, brown sugar).
One of my quibbles was with the free in room coffee/tea. The room comes with a Keurig machine, but there was no tea. I have been to doctor's offices and have seen that there are K -cups with Green tea, etc. so I know that they could have provided either K-cups or even plain old tea bags.
My other quibble is with the conditioner provided in the bathroom. The tube is ridiculously small. I'm a guy and I don't have long hair, but I couldn't even get enough to do my hair with. I suggest that you bring your own conditioner with you especially if you have long hair.
In spite of the quibbles this is still a good hotel and a good deal.
