Thank you so much for the wonderful review! Coincidentally, we won Boston Magazine's general excellence award for best hotel in Boston for 2014! Link: http://www.bostonmagazine.com/best-of-boston/2014/ames-boston-hotel/
This hotel is conveniently located to many of the best locations Boston has to offer. The rooms are simply just average. Not as clean as I would have preferred, but I am picky. Stayed for a business meeting and enjoyed walking the downtown Boston area and enjoyed many excellent restaurants too.
Thank you so much for staying with us. We're sorry you had issues with the cleanliness of your room & we hope you brought it to our attention so we could rectify it. We appreciate your business & hope to be able to make it up to you the next time you visit.
The Ames Boston Hotel was an absolute pleasure to stay at. On top of the reasonable price, guests are provided with all of the amenities one could possibly ask for. The hotel is immaculate - decor is clean, floors are clean, and the rooms are clean. There was not one moment where I could pinpoint any filth or dirt, or use from previous tenants in our room. The Hotel is furnished carefully with modern decor and the use of materials is genius. The hotel is right next to Government Center and a very short walk to the North End, Faneuil Hall, and everything Boston. For the location, this hotel was extremely quiet. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a place to unwind, as a home base while staying in Boston (they offer free bicycles here, too), or a weekend in the city.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, we really appreciate it! We look forward to your next visit!
Stayed at the Ames for an overnight business trip. As everyone else had said, it's a great, central location in downtown Boston. Easy to get to and from most Boston sites and well situated. It's a small, boutique hotel with a modern and simple vibe. Not cushy but rather spartan and simply appointed with pops of design and wit here and there.
The rooms are small, but have character within the old, historic building. Mine had a huge, arched window which made the small room feel substantially larger. The street noise was very present, however, due to the old window and the 4th floor location.
The room is great if you're traveling solo. If you share the room, be prepared to share your full self -- the bathroom's shower partitions the bed area from the bathroom and it's glass with a sheer curtain. If modesty is your thing, be forewarned.
Live music in the restaurant nightly. Fine and dandy, but there's nowhere to have a business meeting or conversation in the lobby or the restaurant when the performers are on.
Staff were very courteous and friendly.
Thank you for choosing to stay with us, we appreciate it. The next time you're with us we'll be happy to put you on a higher floor farther away from the street noise. We also have rooms without our "sexy showers" available upon request & if you're looking for a quiet place for a small meeting, we also have a business center on the 3rd floor available 24 hours. Thank you for the review & we hope to see you again the next time you're in Boston!
I had to stay over a night in Boston while on a business trip. The Ames was easy to find and in the heart of downtown, right next-door to the State-Building complex. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was fascinating, being entirely enclosed in glass and had a fantastic shower with a rain-style head. Everything was well-appointed and well-designed in an elegant modern style, including the desk workspace right in front of the window.
The downstairs bar was comfortable and well-appointed and the internet was swift. Altogether everything you'd need for a fine stop-over.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We appreciate your business & hope to see you again the next time you're in town.
We stayed overnight for a wedding of a coworker. I would come back in a heartbeat! Staff was wonderful, room was perfect and location was great! Great continental breakfast at a reasonable price. Great bartender! Very comfortable and European!
Thank you for staying us & for the wonderful review, we appreciate it. We look forward to seeing you the next time you're in town!
