Stayed here with friends during September 2011 to find a good comfortable hotel. The location was quite good for the the city park and most of the local amenities, bars and restaurants. The desk staff were very welcoming and helpful whenever possible and overall we had a pleasant stay.
On the downside, the rooms were quite cramped and there was no restaurant other than a cafe style diner on the ground floor but on the upside Thornton's cafe was only a 5 - 10 minute walk away. Be prepared to wait for a table here. It is quite small and very popular but the food is worth it.
Recommendations: Hotels in Boston itself are quite expensive so don't expect too much for your money and that just about sums up the situation. Good if you are on a budget. Not good if you enjoy all the trimmings.
