In all of our travels we have never had such a poor hotel! We knew going in that this was an old "historic" hotel, but we never imagined it like this. The first room they put us in was maybe 8' X 8' with a tiny window. You could barely get by the bed to go to the bathroom. We asked for a larger room because my husband has issues with claustrophobia - they put us in a room a little bit larger that had 2 windows. Just when I thought it was going to be OK - I went to take a shower and the tile in the shower and on the ceiling of the bathroom had mildew/mold growing in it! We were supposed to stay in Boston 4 nights in this hotel and had prepaid the room through a 3rd party booking - needless to stay we will not do that ever again! Luckily after contacting the airlines and booking another hotel for 1 night we only had to stay at this place for 2 nights and flew home early. We are getting a refund for the last 2 nights at Boston Common!
