“Excellent Service”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

The hotel was in an excellent location to the Back Bay Boston Area. After reading several reviews, we decided to book this hotel. Although the rooms in general are small, we were quite satisfied for our 3 night stay. From the time we registered in to the time we left Boston, the staff could not have been more efficient to make our stay very enjoyable. It was their friendly and smiling faces that just made you feel great.

Room Tip: Request a corner room on floors 7-9. All rooms are not large, but the corner was quite adequate.

We found the hotel easily once arriving. The room was small and had hardly any wardrobe space but that didn't bother us, we hung some clothes on the coat rack! The hotel is located within walking distance to most attractions, and the subway if you don't want to walk! We would definitely recommend this hotel and stay again if visiting Boston.

Everything you could want in a hotel, clean rooms, clean bathroom, free toiletries, free wifi, helpful staff, subsidised parking. It was a bit basic for the money. We were 'upgraded' to the deluxe room. Which was a basic twin room, just enough room to squeeze two beds in (although we only needed one bed). Liked the keurig coffee maker in the room, I think every hotel room should have one. The location is excellent. Quite central and within walking distance of all the major attractions.

We stayed 9 nights, stayed on the 8th floor, standard queen room. Room was small but we weren't there much so it served the purpose. Great a/c and heat, cleaned to a high standard daily. Located less than a block from the Orange T Line and just a few blocks from the Green T Line. Close walking distance to shopping and many great restauants. We would stay again, great value. Downside no fitness center in bldg.

Stayed here for 7 nights with my husband. Stayed on the 8 th floor, standard room. Room was small but ok. Window opened and the ac worked. Room was cleaned daily.
The major selling point of this hotel is the LOCATION.From what I could see it was a reasonably priced hotel in an expensive neighborhood. T LINE.:Orange line stopped on same street and the green line is 2 blocks over. We got the Silver line in (free) to South station and T over to Back Bay,, had to change at downtown crossing, it was a bit of a trek but manageable with 1 bag each. We got a taxi back to Logan for just $24!!! Cheaper than what a shared shuttle would have been.
Reception staff are worth a special mention. I found the two staff members that I dealt with very helpful. The gentleman that checked us in gave us some helpful pointers and a map to get us started,, where to get game tickets,, walks to do,, places not to miss. He also recommended getting a taxi to airport. They allowed us a late check out 1pm, and stored our bags until we were leaving. And called us a taxi when we needed it.
I would not hesitate in recommending Hotel 140. In comparison to the price of other hotels in the area it was a steal!

Mom and I loved this Hotel. It is an old YWCA so the place is simple, but what a location! Super close to the "T" Back Bay stop. Very clean. Just wonderful all the way around. Staff at the front desk were very helpful and nice. We will definitely stay here again.
