Although we've been to Boston numerous times, we'd never seen the Ames Hotel. There's no signage and no identification. In fact, the biggest complaint we heard from guests is they had circled the block numerous times looking for it and passed it equally as many times. We did, too. Located in one of Boston's historic buildings, this boutique hotel can take bragging rights for having the best location in town. Convenient for walking the Freedom Trail and the sights. Minutes from Faneuil Hall, the North End, Boston Garden and the Harbor, it's also steps away from the T (with easy airport access). It's contemporary. It's sleek. It has David Bowie, the Stones and some alternative music piped into the elevator. Its restaurant was closed (under renovation/new management?) when we were there. Rooms are well equipped and in an effort to be slick are super minimalist. Would we stay there again? Absolutely. Would we keep our fingers crossed that we'd get another great Priceline rate? You bet.
