As people have mentioned, this hotel is a converted building that had a previous purpose. The architects have done a great job. This is not a huge hotel and I would suggest a room on an upper floor. Only one elevator but that was never a problem. Valet parking was very reasonable and the gentleman responsable was super nice and helpful, thanks José. All of the staff seemed proud of their establishment and went out of their way to give information on transportation within the city etc. Very easy transportation on bus or T to central Boston in front of the hotel. I discovered Jamaica Plain and the good restaurants etc. on Centre Street....not far from the hotel.
High ceilings, new comfortable beds, great linens/towels etc. Bathrobes and slippers provided. Flat-screen TV worked perfectly as did the free WIFI. My room was very large. New carpeting throughout helped with the sound-proofing. I never heard a thing from the hallways but did hear the occasional bump from the room above. This was in not a problem during my stay. I heard no TV/radio noise at all and no speaking noise through the walls etc. I would have appreciated an in-room safe but I did make use of the hotels safety box at the reception, no problem.
I will definitely return to enVision Boston. Boston hotels are notoriously expensive and this hotel provided excellent value. Although there are not many shops etc. in the immediate vicinity of the establishment I felt very safe in this area....and quite frankly, staying outside of the central business district was relaxing.
