“Family trip over Thanksgiving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

I booked this hotel for a family holiday with my husband and two adult daughters. We all were pleased with the large, comfortable, well equipped rooms. The pristine bathrooms were huge with a separate shower cubicle.Every member of staff we met were friendly, polite and efficient. Breakfasts were overly generous and we soon learnt to share orders. The food was good and well presented but tended to be very oversalted! The hotel's location was ideal with most of Boston within walking distance. The only criticism I have is the charge for internet access which we found excessive, considering this hotel's rates, we would have expected this to be free! Overall we would happily recommend this hotel to anyone, just avoid the internet!

I went to Boston with my fiancée to discover a new city in the USA.
The hotel is located in the financial district. It is 5 minutes walking from Union Station and 10 minutes from The Market. The hotel is really comfortable and nice.
We had a Superior room with waterfront view. Honestly the view was not as good as on the pictures because what they call waterfront is only a small area of water with 2 boats but you have many other buildings after the water so you don't have a complete view on the bay. Maybe try upper (we were on 7th floor).

But the room was so nice. There was a wood window between the bathroom and the bed so you can open it and enjoy the night and the stars from your bath. Alone or with your husband/wife it is so good ! You can have a nice music on the iPhone station to complete your romantic night. The bathroom is huge, with big shower and profound bathtub. Large mirrors.

The staff is really nice and many services are available in the hotel. A big indoor swimming pool, health center, spa, 3 restaurants/bar: A French brasserie and a sushi bar.

You have a concierge at the entrance and he will provide you all the information you need to enjoy your stay in Boston.

Good place for working people also, with a large desk and many conference and reception rooms in the hotel.

So whatever your personal status and the reason of your stay, you will find everything you want in this hotel.

I highly recommend it !

My second visit to this relatively new, stylish and modern hotel which is located both very close to the business district of Boston and Logan Airport. I got upgraded to a huge club room with a fantastic view. The service was good, with a reasonably priced breakfast at the French style restaurant, and a very well equipped 24 hour state of the art gym. I would definitely stay there again.

The rooms here are pretty large, with plenty of room for the bed, bench at the foot of the bed, desk, and so on. The windows are also large, and there was a decent view of the street and the nearby buildings.

I really liked the bathroom too. The wall between the bathroom and the bedroom had a sliding screen in front of the tub, so you could sit in the tub and look out the window or watch TV. There was also a shower.

I booked an executive level room, so I also had access to the lounge, which served a pretty nice breakfast in the morning. There was smoked salmon, some fruit, and some pastries to choose from.

The room was nice. Thought pretty tacky to charge $14.95 if you wanted wifi in room when the rooms are already pretty pricey. Our room had a view directly into another building where we could see office workers at work. Pretty weird, but you are in a city. People all pleasant. Good location but I was at a conference at this hotel for 2 days so didn't get out much. Parking pricey at $40 per day but again you are In city.

What a beautiful hotel. The rooms were small but well appointed and extremely comfortable. The food and the spa were both fantastic. I felt that the hotel was easily within walking distance of many attractions here in boston (I am a walker though). I walked into Chinatown for dinner and drinks and into Faniel Hall for some shopping. The staff was wonderful. My only complaint would be my view...I happen to get a room that looked out at the building under construction next door. Oh well. I had a great stay every thing was clean. Parking was expensive and valet is really your only option but they have a good in and out policy and I walked most anywhere so it wasn't a problem.
