This is a strong 4 star...Really just about 5 stars though I tend to only give 5...when a place is not just great...but, rather unusually great/unique.."MUST" go back etc.
The location is amazing. The rooms are nice in a way that beautifully merges modern swanky with Boston conservative. Easy-to-use fireplaces are a great touch...Good food...Service was very good though it definitely has an inner-city 'working for tips' kind of feel...which, for me, may be what slimmed my score down slightly from 5 to 4 stars --Don't get me wrong..Can't complain ...Service was great...It just didn't jump out at me as 'warm' or 'sincere' but hey, it is busy, brash Boston!
We were there as a surprise getaway weekend for my girlfriend who has always wanted to visit boston and she loved the hotel..I loved it too...even if I "only" gave it 4 stars
