Stayed here for a 2-day conference and found it to be wonderfully convenient spot for trips around downtown Boston. The historic hotel is located just one block from Fenway Park and close to the Boston University campus. Additionally, the Green Line subway is about half block away and will take you to the Hynes Convention Center station in about 5 minutes.
The hotel itself is over 100 years old. Rooms come in all sizes from two-room suites to squeezed-in queens. We had one of the smaller rooms (most likely it was originally meant to hold a single bed), but we found it worked well-enough for our needs.
Yes, some of the furniture was a little worn, but the bed, linens and pillows were clean and comfortable, the bathroom was spotless, the towels were soft and the shower worked. We had two minor maintenance problems (one was our fault). Both times after calling the front desk, a service person was at our door within three minutes. The front desk staff was consistently friendly and helpful.
