“Great Location, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2006

This hotel is in a great location, on the waterfront beside the Freedom Trail and 10 minutes walk from downtown (don't try to drive in Boston). Also close to the USS Constitution and near to good restuarants in Charlestown (I recommend Olive). Only problem is the directions, which are useless and Boston is a city without any roadsigns, so we eventually found it by chance! Suites are clean and comfortable with good views. Buffet breakfast a bit of a scrum, though.

This hotel is a great location to launch a sightseeing tour with the family and as previous reviews stated - the ferry is < 10min walk away (note the first boat starts at 10am on weekends) & goes straight to the aquarium & the grocer is about 10 min up a different road as well. We stayed in a 2 bed suite - didn't have a view of the harbour (which is lovely) - had a view of the interesting bridge with many trucks, trains, cranes - a hit with our toddler. The USS Constitution ship & museum nearby were also highlights of our stay. We managed to catch 'robot wars' at the science museum staged by MIT teams - little robot teams playing an aggressive soccer tourney & the great lightning/thunderstorm show in the electricity hall. Breakfast at the hotel was extensive (& was best brought up to the room), the kids had fun in the swimming pool & whirlpool (although the pool bottom was soiled with dirt the first night), the fitness room had a good array of treadmills with a view of the harbour, there was only one tiny wastebasket in the suite & it would have been nice to have a small bottle of dishsoap & a scrub pad ( as many other residence inns/suites provide) - the pots & pans were worn & had blackened bottoms (ie. how to remove without a proper scrub pad? & no the maids do not do dishes), laundry rooms are not available on even numbered floors (except possibly the 8th) despite the sign on the 6th floor point to a guest laundry (yep, tried to enter someone else's room - it said laundry this way) - the larger suites are at the end of the hallways & if you're really lucky it looks like you can have a large suite right by the elevator, across from the laundry room or mechanical room but with a view of the harbour on an odd numbered floor ending in a 00 & here's a tip - a fellow across at the public parkade told me where to park for free - there's a small strip of parking for about 20 - 30 cars between the hotel & the bridge (yep we could see ourcar directly below from our room) which is public parking. When I asked at the front desk - they confirmed this 'sotto voiced' - that yes it's free & yes you can leave your car there as long as you like. It seemed quite safe & sought after judging by the number of higher end SUVs cruising about nipping in looking for a spot. Don't park in front of the doors which say don't park here & don't park on the crossed strips which say parking prohibited - a yellow warning tag will appear on your shield.

We arrived direct from the airport and recieved excellent service from the very start.

The twin room we had was very spacious and had a very useful small kitchenette, with microwave, dishwasher and small stove

The breakfast buffet was very busy with a long que, but worth the wait and had a good selection.

Location is good, with many of the Boston tours stopping just outside. USS Constallation is within walking distance

I would stay at this hotel again
