My stay overall excellent, with just a few minor quibbles that leave this hotel just short of other MO and high end hotels I have stayed at. The hotel is centrally located on Boylston with high end shopping and lots of restaurants and bars nearby. It is attached to the Prudential Square mall with even more shopping and restaurants inside. Valet parking is $48/night. Check in was warm and friendly, and the welcome tea brought to your room was a delightful touch. The hotel was full during my stay, and there was always a line (although short) for the front desk staff who did seem harried. That being said, the staff were unfailingly polite and helpful. As others have noted, you need your room key to access your floor. Because the hotel was full, I was assigned a wheelchair accessible room which likely colored my view of the stay. The furniture in the room was a bit dented (likely due to wheelchairs), there were no pens in the room, and there were some minor issues with the shower. The bed was comfortable, the temperature of the room was good, and the room was quiet. Complementary water bottles in the room were also appreciated. The fitness center is relatively small, but extremely well equipped. I did not use the hotel wireless internet so cannot comment. Breakfast at Asiana was above average, but not worth it considering the price. This place is definitely a notch above most of the hotels in Boston with a great location. Once again, the stay was excellent, but just short of transcendent, which is what you expect from a Mandarin Oriental.
