We stayed for one night in July in a king room on the second floor. The hotel is not clean. Upon exiting the elevator the carpets are soiled and the hallways feel rundown. The room felt like a college dorm room - the furnishings were cheap, the bed linens were rough and low quality, the bathroom was small and the shower/tub combination was terrible (bad water pressure and a shower curtain), and the king bed was rock hard. Furthermore although I love Charles Street during the day, it is extremely noisy all night long. We could not get a wink of sleep with constant noise coming from everything from pedestrians below to large trucks zooming down Charles Street into the early hours of the morning. When we left to check out we had to maneuver our suicases around a flood of yellowish/brown water that was pouring down from the ceiling in the hallway into a bucket just outside our room. (The hallway was so narrow that it was amost impossible to move past with a suitcase without getting spalshed). I always opt for boutique hotels over chain hotels; however, this hotel is not even up to motel standards. This is the first truly negative review I have ever written for TripAdvisor. It was that bad.
