I have mixed reviews about Ames. First of all, it has a beautiful and modern design with a little historic charm. The staff we came in contact with were very pleasant and accommodating.
Pros: room was beautiful (stayed in the 1 bedroom deluxe suite). Central location, easy access to just about everything, close to airport and the T.
Cons: no coffee in the room or lobby! How can a hotel not have that standard? The restaurant/bar is closed, therefore no room service. When I approached the front desk about coffee, they quickly had a coffee maker, etc. sent up to the room. I was happy until the next day when housekeeping had to have seen the coffee maker but did not bring new cups or pods. We had to ask the front desk for more, housekeeping never replenished the entire stay! We found a partially consumed bottle of wine in the mini bar (offered by the hotel), not sure if it was from the people staying in the room prior or not. Again brought to the attention of the front desk so that we wouldn't be charged.
I'm not sure if I will stay here again. Nice hotel but I expect coffee without constantly asking for it.
