We stayed at Loews Boston for 3 nights at the beginning of May. We were greeted by a friendly and polite member of staff on reception (unfortunately didn't get his name but he was a German guy), it was lovely to be so warmly welcomed after a long flight.
Our room was a decent size (bigger than many in European cities) and whilst not all that modern it suited our needs and was clean. We did notice that there was no tea or coffee facilities which is odd for a 4* hotel. The shower was incredible and the bathroom was a good size. The bed was comfortable (although my husband found it a bit too soft). Air conditioning was effective but loud - not a problem for me but it might annoy others.
The location was good, plenty of lovely restaurants/cafes nearby and only a few minutes from Boylston Street and Copley Square. It took us 30 minutes to walk to Aquarium (where the harbour cruises/whale watching go from) or about 15 minutes on the subway.
Overall I would recommend as it was good value for money for a city centre hotel.
