Stayed at the TAJ Boston while Athena struck the East Coast. Arrived late and was checked in very quickly and efficiently. The room I had was one of the largest hotel rooms I have ever seen short of a full suite and that was very pleasant. The bed and pillows were large and comfortable. But the room was worn a bit, the wallpaper was scuffed in several places, the caulk in the bath was pulling away from the tub, my towel had stains in it, and the heat was set very high and no matter what I did I could not get the room to cool off. As others have pointed out the Internet cost $10.45 plus tax each day and room service and snacks were exorbitant in cost. I realize this is sort of the norm in "luxury" hotels but it seems silly when others provide wifi as part of the cost of the room and breakfasts besides. I have no doubt the hotel was busy (and probably does not care) but I would not stay here again except that I needed to for business reasons given the cost, and extra cost, compared to the wear in the room. I will also say that I got in late and wanted a bite to eat but the only place to eat anything was the bar, which was busy and noisy. No restaurant or cafe open past 10:00 in a major city? Only room service with its crazy prices! Not impressed, location or not. They can do better without a lot of effort.
