Large hotel with all amenities but with small hotel attention to guests. Stayed 4 nights at Colonade on week long visit to New England. Rooms were attractive and well appointed. Desk/table next to window with many electrical outlets and good lighting perfect for laptop work. Sign up for free, "I prefer" membership online and get free wifi. Many rate plans available, so ask. We negotiated average rate of $243 including two breakfasts valued at $16.95 each beginning the day after Labor Day. Had breakfasts delivered room service for $4.00 delivery charge. Great room service...hot coffee, white table cloth, flowers and excellent food.
Hotel brasserie restaurant has excellent food. Very friendly service from front desk to doorman. Hotel located across from Prudential building, which houses shops and foodcourt. Cheesecake Factory across the street. Five Napkins burger restaurant so so. Take subway across the street or taxi ($12 or so roundtrip) to Museum of Fine Arts, a really world class museum with an interesting American Artist section. Ticket are $22 each but can be used for two days or given or shared with another couple for free. Suggest trolley tour for overview, tickets good for two days and hop on and off. Trolleys run every 5-10 minutes. Informative narration. National Park Service gives free walking tours of Freedom Trail.
