The hotel is very well located between the financial district and the new seaport district. The nearest subway station is only two blocks away and if your a good walker most of the Freedom's trail landmark are within walking distance.
Our room was spacious, stylish and confortable with a nice "méridienne" couch, a window facing desk, individual reading lights on each side of the bed and a nice sliding panel between the bathroom and the bedroom. The bathroom features both a shower and a bathtub. The sliding panel is very nice but might be a problem if someone has to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night as it is not lightproof.
On the "green" side, the room is fully equipped with high end LED bulbs.
The staff was available and competent.
My only concern is on the internet connection. This is not unique to this hotel but while most motels offer complementary internet I really don't understand why 4 or 5 stars hotel like this one are charging nearly $15 for an internet connection. Although I had to connect two different devices (laptop and smartphone) and when I connected the second device I didn't know wether or not I would be charged for the second device (the captive portal page is the same).
