Good location, on the water, close to South Station subway. We were able to walk to the aquarium and Quincy market. We took the subway to Prudential center and Fenway park.
We got a good deal on Expedia, so we were happy with the price.
Concierge was very helpful with our questions and was happy to print us off maps of the subway and local attractions.
Check-in was fast and efficient. The staff we encountered were very nice and helpful.
Nice rooms and bathrooms, well maintained.
We asked for a room with 2 beds because we had our daughter with us, I wish the beds had been queen sized, they were only double.
We enjoyed the pool, very clean with nice views.
We did not eat at the hotel as breakfast was 26$ per person for a regular breakfast...no thanks. We walked to a diner 5 min away.
Wi-Fi is not free (which is crazy!! You can walk to the waterfront and connect there for free), parking was expensive (although not surprising in Boston).
On our last night there the fire alarm went off, woke us up from our sleep and we had to evacuate the building. I found the announcement to evacuate unclear, other guests were also unsure if the message stated we needed to evacuate or not, we left anyway. The incident scared my daughter as we were unsure what was going on, I guess it was a false alarm. It took a while to get back to sleep after all the commotion and with the noise of the guests returning to their rooms. Hopefully they will make their evacuations/fire alarm announcements clear in the future.
