We stayed at this hotel because it is a stones throw from Children's Hospital Boston where my grandaughter was a patient. If it were under different circumstances I would have moved to another hotel, but we needed to be very close. The hotel is older and in need of updating. Water went from freezing cold to scalding several times during each shower. Our mattress was a bit droopy, the spread and blankets had a funky smell and we found baby roaches in the bathroom and on the bedside table during our stay. We were never able to take advantage of the free WiFi as the system would never let us on. A call to the technical services number resulted in being disconnected after being on hold for 8 minutes. I had to sit on the chair in front of the elevator on our floor and log in on the Children's Hopsital WiFi. On the positive side the staff was nice, the room was quiet and dark (the sun was rising at 5:30am during our time there). Since we were there on a medical rate we recieved a free continental breakfast each morning which consisted of a bagel or muffin, juice, coffee and fruit bowl. I would not recommend this hotel unless you absolutely needed to be within a minute of the hospital. There is a very nice Courtyard in Brookline where I moved to that is only a 20 minute walk to the hospital. Their medical rate is $10 more and offers a free cook to order breakfast each morning.
