Superb hotel in the historical heart of Boston ideal for the parks, river, museums and of course the Cheers Bar! which we visited twice for food and Red Brick Beer!

We took a ride on one of the ducks from the museum of science one afternoon which we had seen driving around the roads of Boston while we were there, I did not realise they were actually working amphibious vehicles that worked until we hit the river down some dodgy alleyway which was an unfinished skate and bike park.

Stayed three nights in September 2013.
Check-in was very quick and efficient. I arrived in Boston on an early flight, was REALLY happy to get a room before 9am. Very pleasant surprise.

Room was ok, quite specious and clean, but decor is dated.
Bathroom is large, but very basic. Bed was comfortable.

Service was really good. On the last day I asked to push check-out time in two hours, and there was absolutely no problem.

Location is great. Very close to Boylstone and Newberry streets.

Overall, very nice stay. I might return, for a more reasonable price.

First time in this hotel, had a nice well coming from the valet service to the room cleaners. Rooms are not big, but has the enough space not to be uncomfortable. Bathroom good and new.
Internet service needs an improvement in speed and 2 devices per room is not enough once today we travel with at least 2 devices per person.
On a rainy day hotel supplied good umbrellas which made our lives easier.
Parking charges are high in my point of view ($46 per night).

I love to travel, but as a light sleeper dread unknown Hotel rooms. We arrived at 8:30 am from a CA red eye to a very friendly staff (doorman, check-in clerk, concierge.) They stored our bags and had a room within the hour for Us. It is a lovely Hotel in a very nice neighborhood. The bed was amazingly comfortable with the softest most wonderful linens and down pillows. It was very quiet and I slept great. The Keurig coffee maker was just like home, as was the real cream ( not the powder! )The bathroom had an oversized shower with dual heads, and a nice auto under- counter light feature. We only glanced at the menu and it seemed quite high for Breakfast, so we passed. Nice robes are in room as well.

Overall a very nice Hotel and we would definitely stay again. Our few minor complaints were a broken soap dish in the shower(but we are told a huge reno is upcoming in the spring, as Loews just acquired the property from Jury's) the overpriced Breakfast menu, and a slight lack of info from the concierge that would have saved us some money and frustration. And maybe it is a little pricey for pre reno??? ( tech features are old school)

Room Tip: If taking a cab from Logan, many cabbies do not know the Hotel as Loews yet, so tell them the former...

All staff encountered were very helpful and friendly from doormen to check-in to maintenance. The room was very clean and bright during the day. The stereo there is a bit old with no iPod hookup and still has a tape player so bring a wall charger if you need it. The bed was very comfortable and plenty of sheets/comforters. Climate control panel is simple to use, just arrow up or down to desired temperature. My wife and I booked this for a good rate on Hotwire for our 1 year anniversary and the location was great, a short walk to our reservation at Top of the Hub in the Prudential building. We ordered a breakfast for the morning as well which was delicious. To order the staff leave a menu that can be checked off and left on your door knob before midnight, it'll be picked up during the night and ready for when you specify in the morning. There is valet parking and is a short walk from the Green Line.

visited late following exciting trip to New York. The hotel was lovely and staff helpful. The hotel is well situated in the city. I cannot comment on food as did not eat at the hotel. The staff more than helpful. Would stay here again if in Boston.

Arrived from UK tired and too early for check-in, but staff immediately found us a room. This level of customer service was matched throughout our stay. Friendly and well-informed concierge staff, and a perfect location for exploring the city and for restaurants, theatre etc. Very comfortable rooms with excellent standard of cleanliness and house-keeping - drinks and bathroom supplies replenished on a daily basis. Would recommend highly.
