Had to stay at a hotel while our condo was being renovated. Had never heard of this property before but read the reviews and decided to book. The hotel is clean and close to the major hospitals, t and bus stops. It's fine if you're looking for a clean room with good service.

Spent four nights during Thanksgiving week and it was an absolute pleasure. Rooms are modern and well appointed. Staff is especially helpful and accommodating. The location is a bit far from city center (which was perfect for us as it was near family) but public transportation is one-minute walk away. There are not many restaurants close by, but there is a Subway on the corner of the block. We needed to change rooms mid-week due to additional family arriving and hotel management was extremely accommodating. We took a two-room suite and were impressed with the size and amenities. It's basically two full-sized king rooms with a common entryway. However, the rooms are completely separate. However, there is no common gathering area so socializing must be done in one bedroom or the other. We will gladly stay at this hotel again on our next visit to Boston. It was a pleasure.

Room Tip: Front or back of building provides a more open view. The building is quiet throughout, though. The...

The hotel stands out by it's newness amongst the other properties in the street. We had the suite at the back (but still facing a main road) and the rooms were splendid. All mod cons and smart decor. Staff were chatty and helpful. Price not cheap considering distance from city centre.
The hotel is at end of tram line into central Boston and journey cheap and reliable although not quick (get yourself a Charlie card, which can be shared by a group).
The hotel doesn't do breakfast and choice of eating places nearby very limited. Best was TGI Fridays about 15 minutes walk away.
Hotel did book us a cab back to airport but didn't tell us fare had been agreed with driver in advance which made things a bit awkward.

Greetings MrandMrsSJ,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our hotel. We are thrilled you found our rooms to be splendid. As you noted we are not in the downtown area of Boston however public transportation such as the “T” and city bus are both great options to maneuver the city.

We hope you had a safe journey home and look forward to seeing you in the future.

I stayed 4 nights at enVision Boston. I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this hotel. The lobby and rooms look modern and cool. They have done a great job with their christmas decorations.

My room was comfortable and had such useful amenities. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. The overall service was very pleasant. The location was perfect for me. It is so easy to hop in the train, and get around the greater Boston area.

Will definitely like to stay here again.

Thanks to the staff (Aimee, Cherise and Marlennys) our stay at the enVision was just awesome. My husband and I had to spend a night close to the local hospitals and these ladies made our stay so comfortable. We in fact booked ahead for another stay as we will be visiting Boston quit frequently. Thank you all!

This is the second time I stayed here & it did not disappoint! Nice style, very clean rooms, friendly staff, good location! fairly new hotel...even our cab driver wasn't familiar with it~ I consider it a hidden gem amongst pricey, and often subpar, hotels in Boston~

Recently had the pleasure of staying at this hidden gem. I have stayed at many hotels over the years, and this one stands out for its personalized service, attention to cleanliness and detail, as its modern and fresh appearance. Each time I walked in the door, I was welcomed with a genuine smile and a caring attitude. My room was perfect. From the Keurig and refrigerator to the most comfortable bed I have slept on in years, I would have been happier to have stayed longer. The fact that the green line stops right in front of the hotel is just an added bonus! It made is really easy to go into the city for dinner. Kudos to the entire team for a job well done.

I will definitely be calling the enVision next time I have a need to stay in the city!
