We went back to the the Residence Inn last weekend for a birthday trip/celebration. We had stayed there in July just after it opened, and were very happy with the room and service so this was our first choice hotel for our trip.
The hotel and staff are still first-rate! We had a great queen suite on 6. Very comfortable, immaculately clean, and still looking brand new. Housekeeping does an great job. Another plus, we did not hear the bar crowd leaving the Yard House or Bar Louie, even tho we were on the Brookline Street side.
The staff is still warm and friendly - we would like to particularly mention Dottie on the front desk and Roger the manager, who seems to always be on duty. Both are great Marriott ambassadors, always happy to help and very accomodating to guests.
The breakfast buffet is varied, and the staff keeps it well stocked. Even tho "Frozen Fenway" events had the hotel pretty full, we had good luck with breakfast seating and a nice selection of food. Bar Louie next door was new since our last visit, stays open late and had a nice vibe. We would like to come back in the spring and enjoy the roof top lounge. You can walk to most destinations easily, but cabs are easy to get right on Brookline Street.
Since this hotel is very well located for events at Fenway, colleges, museums, etc, book early. We would have come back before this had we been able to get a reservation! Definitely our favorite Boston hotel!
