We spent the first two nights of our New England road trip (& the final night) at the Winthrop.
It's cheaper than staying in downtown Boston and, if you use the Winthrop ferry, you can be in Boston in 20 minutes. Also, only about an easy 15 minute drive from Logan airport.
We had room 214, a corner room, which was fine. Comfortable bed, TV, coffee maker, bathroom with a bath & shower, but my wife did find a used tissue in the bathroom behind the waste bin. Also, we had to ask several times for more toilet rolls, (when we arrived only a small amount left on the roll) . . . . room not serviced properly! Hallways & stairs could certainly do with updating these areas are quite shabby. Their website says "sumptuous accommodations", in my opinion this is a bit of an exaggeration!
Restaurant - has a good menu & reasonably priced. Our first night we were not very hungry, and knowing meals in the US are large we asked to share a meal. That would be fine the server said, but they charged $5 for an extra plate, not come across that before! Breakfast would be nice!
The hotel is in a residential area so parking is in the street but they give you a card to put in the car so you don't get a parking ticket.
From around 5am you could hear aircraft taking off from the airport.
This is an average hotel, reasonably priced, and fairly close to Boston. We only paid $105 per night so you only get what you pay for in this life! Would I stay here again . . . . possibly.
