“A very good value and a great stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

EnVision Hotel is on So. Huntington, so not in the very center of Boston, but it is a very good value for those needing a good hotel at not-outrageous prices. No big glitzy lobby, not in a neighborhood full of shops and stores, but it has all the amenities that are important (nice sized rooms, very clean, good linens, desk and good desk chair, hairdryer, robes, coffee machine, mini-fridge, comfy beds...even an iphone charger). Add to this a very helpful and friendly staff (every single one of them we encountered was great) and a bus stop (green line, which goes right up Huntington Ave. to the Museum of Fine Arts) a half-block from the front door, and a lot of little extras like a tank of ice water and bowl of fresh apples in the small lobby all contribute to an excellent Boston hotel choice. Probably the only drawback was no served breakfast, though they have a nice coffee/snack/pastry counter - we got yogurt from the cooler and a pastry for breakfast, microwave oatmeal etc. also was available.
If you are going to the hotel for a visit to one of the area's hospitals, tell the reservation clerk. That they offer a discount for those being seen at local hospitals was another unexpected and nice surprise.

Recently stayed at the enVision Hotel. It was a quick cab ride to the property from the airport. The location was ideal for my meetings in town. Rooms were very clean and the staff was very professional. I will be a repeat customer!

Stayed here at the beginning of April with my family based on excellent trip advisor reviews. We were very disappointed. First the location is not at all convenient to anything, second its the oddest layout for a hotel I've ever seen. I suppose it is a renovated apartment building? It's just weird! Rooms were nicely appointed, but VERY small! Customer service was friendly, but our biggest problem was that the rooms were LOUD! We changed rooms and it was still loud due to thin walls and the proximity to the street, and if the traffic noise was not enough, the train goes by frequently as well! I didn't sleep a wink! Fortunately it was a short 2 day stay and we moved out to stay instead at the Westin which we were VERY happy with! I would definitely not stay here again!

Dear Michelle S,

Thank you for your feedback. I am truly sorry that we did not fulfill your expectations during your stay with us. We are glad that you enjoyed enjoyed the service you received while at the hotel as that is something we pride ourselves on. I am sorry you found our rooms loud and that our location was not for you.

We were introduced to this hotel via Choice Hotels website. We stayed here for a couple days/evenings. A call to Aimee in advance was right on with recommendations on options from the airport to the hotel. When we arrived in the city, the driver recommended - was very timely and good with contact. We arrived at this recently remodeled hotel - lovely cosy sitting area off the lobby. The recommendations for a first stop dinner...The Mission bar nearby was delightful. Thanks to Aimee and Ryan for the information to start off a memorable, fun holiday. And to the evening shift who were helpful and fun. The Tanner and Marlennys created a lovely candy/cupcake bar "Sweet Dreams" allowed us to meet some others staying in the hotel and share stories. Great workout room! Nice! Would recommend as reasonably priced and welcoming. Thanks.

Room Tip: Rooms are on the small side, but clean and organized nicely. We were in room 306, just off the elev...

Even though this hotel is a bit further out and I stayed when it was maybe one of the coldest weeks in January but I had a lovely stay! The staff are so helpful- I was very impressed with their knowledge of the area! The room was spacious and had all the amenities! I plan on coming back to Boston as many times as I can and I will always try to stay here.

This is a great little hotel, especially if you are traveling with dogs. The staff is so friendly and the dog rooms are on the garden level, which is below the main floor so you don't need to get paranoid if the dogs woof a little or something. The neighborhood is OK and we walked the dogs down by the river, which has some grass and is residential. The price is definitely right for Boston and our stay there was very pleasant. Everyone was very accommodating and helpful. The only drawback was the trolley, which rumbled a bit starting early in the morning, which made our corgi a little nervous. But if you are looking for a clean, friendly, secure place to stay in Boston that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, this is your place. I'm sure it's great if you don't have dogs too! It's also easy to get anywhere in Boston from the hotel. We would stay here again.

First, it is a nicely renovated little hotel, but we have another former apartment building reincarnated as a hotel. Pros: rate, decor, cleanliness, and parking. Cons: location (weird, off the beaten track. Not really walking distance to anything touristy. "Steps away from Fenway?" Try a 30-minute walk. I did it.) Having a room at the front is not ideal, either, as the local commuter train runs all night directly outside; very loud. While some staff appeared friendly, at check-in they barely said ten words to me. Not a great first impression. Overall: rather nicely done property for a very good rate in Boston. If you're driving, no problem. If you're on foot, plan for cabs. And ask for a room in the back.
