I have to say that we really hesitated booking a room in this hotel because there were no reviews in TripAdvisor!! It's a new hotel under the Royalton Suites name but if you do a search under the address 254 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02116, you'll see that it used to exist as a B&B, presumably under different ownership. Well, we went ahead and booked it and we were not disappointed! We wanted a Queen room only but they only had a King room for the first night so we booked the King for night #1 and a Queen for another 3 nights. They called us back the same day to say that there were upgrading us to a King room for the 4 nights at the rate of the Queen room - how nice is that! Upon arrival, our room had been given to another client who'd arrived a day early but within half an hour, our room had been vacated and cleaned, ready for us. The only down side was parking - there is none for this hotel. You need to use public parking lots. There is one only a 5 minute walk away and it's $30 per day - note that you don't have in\out privileges. As soon as you take out your car, the clock starts over. But, this hotel is SO well located that you don't need the car at all. We walked everywhere. There are tons of restaurants, shops, and wonderful desert places right at your doorstep (check out Max Brenner Chocolate at 745 Boylston Street - A MUST!!! http://www.maxbrenner.com/menus.html). We were even in walking distance of the Freedom Trail, the Warf, the USS Constitution, the various parks, Cheers bar, etc. We did take the subway to visit Harvard and took the car out one day to go to Cape Cod and the Prime Outlets on the way back. Back to the hotel... it's very clean and nicely decorated in modern furniture and colors. Our room was huge and had hardwood floors (cleaner feel than carpet!) There were 2 nice white love seats - not sure what that will look like in a couple years but it was lovely when we were there. We had a view on Newbury street which was great. The air conditioning wasn't extremely strong but it was perfectly fine, not worth complaining about to the staff in our opinion. The shades in the windows are quite thin so the room gets bright quite early - good to get you going on your day. Plenty of hot water and good pressure - nice new shower. It's a very small place so you don't have all the amenities of a big hotel - that's not important to us so we were fine. All staff were extremely polite and helpful and with a little more experience will become wonderful (the place is new and some of the staff are are a little "green" but very nice and friendly)! Would definitely stay there again!!!
