This hotel is in a really nice location. Everything us very walkable and the surrounding neighborhood is very pretty and nice. Lots of shops, restaurants and bars. Great breakfast place across the street. We needed to pick up a car at Hertz after our stay and this was just a few blocks on foot.
The building is pretty and has character. I really appreciated that. Our room was kind of small for an American hotel room and we had a lot of luggage. One side of the bed was against the wall. Room was clean. Housekeeping was very friendly (we saw them on several occasions and they always greeted us with enthusiasm). Front desk personnel was very friendly as well.
I wish our room had a better view. Now we overlooked a big parking garage. Everything was quiet though.
Only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars, is the price. Boston hotels are expensive. Hotel 140 was one of the best deals I could get, but still this was much more expensive then our hotel in Manhattan a week later. I would definitely pick this hotel again when in Boston though.
