I have been vacationing in Boston for the past 11 years, the hotel that I normally stay at is now a high end (read out of my price range!) hotel, and I was forced last year and this year to seek new lodgings. I have found a new "home" in the Millennium.
My room was on the 6th floor, Room 609 facing Quincy Market. It had a very small, about 3 feet by 2 feet, balcony with window box complete with live Geraniums. It was just large enough for 2 people and to take some really nice photos from.
The room itself was quite large, and included a separate changing area/make up area off of the bathroom which is where the closet was as well (see photos). Very nice to have this extra space. The armoire in the room contained a flat screen TV and a stocked mini bar.
Unfortunately, the mini bar was the kind that were you to remove anything to put your own item(s), you would be charged immediately. In order to get ice, you have to call room service - odd. So it's free, but you would need to tip room service I would think, thus making it not free? Wifi isn't free (but in these days with Smartphone's, that is rather a moot point). The cleaning staff starts very early in the morning ... when I awoke at 8:05 A.M. there was a note under my door telling me that they were unable to service my room and I needed to call Housekeeping. This happened every morning, the latest I awoke was 8:30 A.M. The bathroom had a very large shower with fantastic water pressure.
The layout of the hotel is kind of odd, there are many angles and it is almost like a maze on the floors where the rooms are, the elevator was quite a distance from my room. Not a complaint, just pointing it out. The view from my room was great (see photos) but this may be slightly better in Rooms 634, 641, and 642 as they are in a different part of the hotel and would seem to have a full view of the Quincy Market/Fanueil Hall area.
Location - fantastic. There is a T stop just a half block away, you are 2 blocks from the North End, Quincy Market and Fanueil Hall are almost outside the door. There is Valet parking and doormen that open the door every single time you come or go. They were all extremely nice as was everyone I encountered in the hotel.
If I had to complain, it would be minor complaints. The inability to get your own ice, inability to use the fridge, and the very early Housekeeping staff. The first morning I called and got a recording telling me to leave a message, the 2nd morning I did get a person and they sent someone within 30 minutes to clean the room. I only stayed 2 nights. Lack of free Wifi. Again, these are very minor complaints and would not deter me from staying here again. I look forward to my next stay.
