We had a wonderful stay here over Valentine's Day weekend. Our room was spacious and comfortable, and we heard almost no outside noise. The turndown service was wonderful, including the special Valentine's Day treat. The staff was wonderful, too. They have an excellent collection of DVDs that you can get for free to watch in your room, which we took advantage of during our stay. The location is also excellent, as it's right next to a "T" stop if you want to use mass transit to get around Boston. It's also within walking distance of many of the top sights in the city. As a newspaper lover, it was great being able to pick up a free London Times, NY Times or Boston Globe at the front desk, even on a Sunday! Even though we didn't have a laptop with us, it was nice to see that there is free Internet access in the guest rooms, which isn't always the case at the pricier hotels. A friend who lives in Boston told us the restaurant located in the hotel was excellent, although we never got a chance to sample the cuisine. If I got a good rate, I would definitely come back. I'm afraid this place is out of my price range with its normal rates.
