We spotted this hotel on our previous trip to Boston a few years back, and decided we would try and stay there if we returned. So we booked five nights to end our trip, which started in New York and Chicago. Lovely public spaces, and friendly, professional service. We were in room 1607 with a city view. Lovely room, comfortable bed and plenty of space.
We used the Sea Grille restaurant for breakfast and dinner as well as the bar for dinner on one evening. Food was generally good and service as high quality as you would expect from this hotel. Our only criticism would be that the waffles for breakfast were dry and chewy.
We are quite casual, down to earth people, and in some other top-end hotels have found the service a bit condescending, but here it was friendly, helpful and faultless.
The concierge team are outstanding and always keen to help. We were lucky enough to be taken by Rafik to the airport in one of the hotel cars. He took us for a quick trip through the Italian quarter as we had not had the chance to visit.
When we return to Boston, there can be no other hotel to go to.
