There are other reviews on Tripadvisor that say the only thing this place has going for it is the location. I disagree. Don't let the location fool you into staying here, because it's not worth it. My husband and I were staying in Boston for a wedding, and this is where the bride and groom reserved a block of rooms. The FIRST room they put us in (613) was disgusting. There baseboards and A/C vents were caked with dust, there were hairs in our bed, splatters of who knows what on the walls, the shower curtain and shower tile was stained and mildewed, and the list goes on. We told the front desk that our room was dirty and we wanted a new one. They claimed that housekeeping said it had been cleaned, but moved us to another room (701) anyway. That room was only marginally better. There wasn't any hair in the bed, but there was mildew in the shower, the bathroom floor had dust and hair all over it, and the carpet in the main room looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in months. Obviously all housekeeping was doing was putting clean sheets on the bed and clean towels in the bathroom and that was it. The hotel's facilities themselves are old and worn out, but that can be overlooked if the place is clean. This hotel however, was NASTY.
