I stayed here for business and honestly chose the hotel because it was the cheapest available of its caliber in the area. Boston hotel rates, at least during the time I was traveling, are very expensive. It's a very large hotel and while I was there it was very, very busy. I think this is because it is next to the convention center and therefore extremely convenient for anyone at a convention. The room was appointed with the necessary conveniences and the service and room service was fine. My room wasn't ready upon check-in--I was the only person in my group who had this issue and they called my cell phone when it was eventually ready. I loved that there was a Starbucks franchise downstairs as there is nothing immediately walkable in this area (though if you go for a longer walk you can find a very nice selection of restaurants by the water).
While nothing stood out as especially unique or wonderful about this hotel, it was clean, functional, well appointed, comfortable and I think it would be absolutely perfect for anyone in town for a convention who won't necessarily be in their room a lot.
My only real complaint is that for such a large and busy hotel, they never seemed to have enough knowledgeable staff on hand. The concierge was of no help in assisting us in choosing a restaurant, and I waited twice in a very long line when checking in while only two staff members manned the check in desks.
