We chose this hotel because the Courtyard was booked. We had reservations about staying here based on the mixed reviews. We were pleasantly surprised.
The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. We were always greeted with a smile and friendly hello.
We stayed in an executive king suite. It was definitely worth the extra money. The room was clean and comfortable. The window faced the street and not the inside of the hotel.
The hotel is conveniently located to shops, restaurants, and bars. We were able to run to Trader Joe's and CVS to grab some forgotten items without any trouble.
In our opinion, the best part about the hotel is that it is located directly across the street from the T stop. Actually, it is located across the street from 2 T stops: St. Paul Street and Kent Street. The Kent Street stop is across from the parking garage. We were able to leave our car parked in the garage after we had checked out on Sunday so that we could continue to explore Boston.
The only reason that we didn't give this hotel 5 stars is because of its layout. It is huge and most of the rooms' doors and windows open to the hallway that overlooks the pool and restaurant area. It reminded us of a cruise ship. I would definitely pay the extra money to get a room with a window that opens to the outside - not the inside of the hotel.
We chose not to eat breakfast at the hotel and instead went out. I think that we made the right choice. We were not disappointed with that decision.
