I was plesantly surprised ! My relatives were booked at the copley and when checking rates decided to look for a "more reasonable" rate and hotel. the hotel is in copley square one block from copley place- walking distance to downtown faniel hall beacon holl etc.
When I got to the entry it was a bit of aa shock- like a side door or an employee entry- you see a parking garage etc BUT when entering you can tell this once was az grand hotel!
The hotel is not modern nor fancy yet you feel an air of grandure it once had- the STAFF was very friendly, the room and toliet were imaculatly clean coffeemaker in room lots of fluffy towels etc
safe was at front desk - the business center accross from the front desk open 24/7 had free internet access and printer
the wifi supposedly workd only in common areas ( router by floor) but i had great reception in room
Free HBO and TV
The continental breakfast was surprising-
4 types of bagels english muffins 4 types of cold cereals 2 choices of juice fresh fruit an assortment of coffee cakes- jellys and jams
and all as much as you could eat!!
In short an amazing value- i booked on line and did the web special that gave me a min 50% price difference between this hotel and all other area hotels
