We stayed at this hotel for two nights to visit colleges in the area. All were easily driveable or accessible by public transit. Although the parking rate is high ($18 per night) you can come and go as you please, so that was good. We chose to drive to the schools and then took the T into the city for dinner. Very low stress.
Lots of places to eat are within walking distance. The room was large and comfortable, although it had a slightly musty smell that you didn't notice after the first few hours.
We didn't have a rate that included the breakfast, and we didn't want to have to pay the price per person, so we had our breakfasts out on the streets instead, which was fine. Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Panera, and cafes are all a short walk away.
The only 'problem' other than the musty smell was that we only had three towels in our room when four people checked in. I had to call for the extra towel, and even when they replaced our towels, we still only got three. But that was not really a big deal. Definitely would recommend this hotel, and would stay there again. We were able to get a AAA rate but otherwise, at $199 per night, we probably would have stayed only one night. But it's a city hotel, so that isn't a terrible price tag.
