we booked this hotel because of its location to fenway park and was not dissapointed.
upon arrival we were upgraded to a bigger room on the fifth floor which was large clean and had a very comfortable bed with the added bonus of great views of city and fenway park and had no problems with street noise.
the only downside we felt should be mentioned was that the breakfast room did not match the standard of the rest of the hotel(too small and in need of modernising)
the hotel is very close to subway and has a car park next door,$30 for 24 hours may sound expensive but is the going rate for boston.
would stay here again when we visit boston.
