I stayed for one week at the hotel and booked a standard room. It is located right next to the world trade center and is also close by the convention center. For those having business in either of those venues it is very convenient to get there.
The room was very tidy, fully equipped with a comfortable king size bed, a reasonably sized working area with wifi, a pod coffee/tea maker which produced great coffee provided by the hotel, a two-seater sofa and a chair. All the expected amenities were there like safety box, small refrigerator, big flat-screen TV, ironing board, bathrobes, blow dryer etc.
The lobby is comprised of different meeting and lounge area, ATM, Starbucks, and a restaurant/bar. The staff was very professional, friendly and helpful.
The downside was that breakfast was not included (but there is an excellent Seven Eleven just around the corner) and that the ceiling of the aisles and rooms felt a bit low for my taste. But that is probably just my preference since I love high ceilings.
I also would have preferred a separate shower rather than taking a shower in the bathtub and a shower curtain. That is my reason why I rate the hotel very good and not excellent.
The surrounding area seems to be developed into an upscale dining and office area and some of the old port buildings seems to have been upgraded and converted into offices, hotels and restos. I liked the feel of the area.
For those who come to see Boston I would suggest to find a hotel in downtown, however if you don't mind a bit of walking the major sites can also be reached by foot within 30 minutes or so.
I liked the place but if it weren't for business purposes I think I would choose a hotel closer to the action.
