One reviewer said the hotel is good for visitors who had come to Boston to see the city and not sit in their hotel room staring at the furniture, I was on vacation to 1) Sleep in late and rest and 2) See the city. After I saw my room, I dropped my bags off, and only came home to crash after watching the latest movie, even in the snow storm and declared state of emergency, I was out first thing in the morning, after a quick shower, standing on the ledges straddling the tub, because not only was the bottom chipped and mat molding but it was backing up way above my ankle. No long steamy showers or lounging around in a soft plush bed for me.
That said the convenience of a great location, with access to the subway a 2min walk away, at a reasonable price afforded me the budget for a great time out on the town in Boston, leaving me very little to complain about especially because I did not have a car to get around and on the Other hotels started at $100 more a night up to $500. The staff was great; pleasant and friendly. Free breakfast -Coffee, juice, croissants, danish, bagels, cereal, always a plus.
