Went to Boston to see our nephews at Boston University. Chose the hotel blind, only knew that it was on Commonwealth Ave., making it a straight line to their dorms.
We arrived by train from NYC in the middle of the World Series parade. Even with the crowds of people it only took a few minutes by cab from the station.
Our hotel room was large, well appointed, sparklingly clean and had an amazing view of downtown Boston. (picture attached)
The hotel staff was friendly and made us feel comfortable - providing an intimate feeling of a boutique hotel, even though it is really big.
We could walk around the corner to Fenway Park if we were there for a baseball game. The subway (called for some reason the T) is immediately next door - and the doorman could snag a cab as fast as anyplace I've been.
If you want to have a memorable stay in Boston - easily access all the things the city has to offer and have a word class restaurant on the ground floor, just down the hall from the elevator, this is it.
