I stayed in the Ames in Boston in June 2010 as part of a wider trip to the US. The hotel as a whole is very well presented, super clean and very well designed. I especially liked the outside area where you could eat a meal on some nice outdoor sofas.
The room itself was bright and spacious - the bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was very large with a great big shower.
We ate lunch in the restaurant one day - very nice food, and reasonably priced (although everything in Boston seemed that way to us... we had just arrived from the Hamptons). The service was really charming - I'd like to thank the restaurant manager who very humerously protected us from a homeless man who was bothering us, and the other staff were great too. Also a nod to the concierge, Charles, who was super-helpful and very funny.
All in all a great hotel - only down point was being charge $50 for a 5 minute international call - that's beyond all measure of reasonably what a hotel should be charging. This was wiped when we pointed out it was actually a reverse-charge (collect) call - but still I think it's unfair of any hotel to overcharge for services like this. Didn't spoil our stay though, I'd definately go back.
