We stayed at this hotel because it was close by the Prudential Center where we were going to an event. The good thing was they had a shuttle to and from the Prudential center every half hour. There was a fee for parking which was an unpleasant surprise, wish it was included in the cost of the room. The staff was friendly and the front main area was clean and smelled good. Our room was another story. There were water stains on the walls and ceiling, our remote control wouldn't work so I turned the TV on manually and it wouldn't turn on. The noise from the planes at the airport was unavoidable, but can be slept through. There were no pillow cases on the pillows and they were very thin and basic. Must have been the cheapest economy pillows they could afford. The bed was very stiff, not very comfortable. The towels felt like sandpaper they were so thin and starchy. Upon entering the room there was about a quarter of a roll of toilet paper in the bathroom and not a spare roll anywhere. Just a very outdated room which needed basic cleaning. Also found a previous hotel goer's lace tank top between the couch and the window so you can tell it is not thoroughly cleaned. I'd only stay there again if I HAD to.
