We stayed at this hotel for four nights during July, and it was a great choice for our family. The location is perfect. It’s close to so many attractions, including Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, the Freedom Trail, the New England Aquarium, the North End, Christopher Columbus Park and the harbor. The Inner Harbor Ferry goes from Long Wharf to Charlestown Navy Yard and makes visiting to the U.S.S. Constitution easy, and the ride over is great. The ferry to Salem also leaves near there. We didn’t have a room with a view, but we enjoyed the view of the harbor from the swimming pool area. It’s also close to several restaurants, including Legal Sea Foods and Joe’s American Grill. Walking around in that area is pleasant, especially in the evening, and you can sit on benches and watch the harbor. Alamo Car Rental is also located about a block away, which made returning our rental car from Maine in very convenient.
Service was mostly good, except for one day when the maids didn’t come until about 5 or 6 pm. Our room was great - very comfortable, modern, clean, and spacious. There is a small refrigerator, coffee maker, large flat screen TV, an ipod dock, and a fairly large safe in the room. It also has a desk with plenty of electrical outlets for recharging all those electronic devices of today and a chair with an ottoman. The bathroom was nice as well. I used the computers at the business center by the lobby to print some information out on several occasions, and I never had to wait for a computer or printer. Despite the fact that this hotel is an atrium type, it wasn’t noisy like some atrium hotels can be. We found it quiet and relaxing.
We didn’t eat breakfast at their restaurant because the price was pretty steep, and they didn’t have any packages available that included breakfast for the time we were there. The lines at the Starbucks there can get very long and be slow. We also went to a Dunkin Donuts around the corner one morning.
I would definitely choose to stay at this hotel again if I return to Boston.
