The hotel is located by the waterfront, a block away from the South Station Commuter Rail. It was super easy for us to get from Boston to Harvard Square Cambridge using the red line.
It was not as central to sites in Boston as I would like but still walkable - a little over a mile for both Faneuil Hall & Newbury Street.
The room was beautiful, nicely decorated with lots of room, floor to ceiling windows with great views.
The only weird thing was that there was a big window above the headboard that opened to the bathroom. Even with the sliding window closed, there was still a one inch gap at the bottom - so that you can see into the bathroom and can hear everything going on.
I was with my husband, so it didn't bother me but if I was staying there with a friend, I guess I would be self conscious using the bathroom ;)
Note: Internet is not free. Parking is 40$/night
