My boyfriend and friend and I stayed here for 2 nights. We actually booked the room through Hotwire so didn't know what we were getting before we booked. We were very pleased with the accomodations. We used the 'T' (the subway) to get to the hotel from the airport. We had to make two transfers but we had a stop right outside our hotel so it was super convienent. We arrived early (even before check out time) so they let us store our luggage while we set out to explore Boston. The neighborhood is very quiet and a few blocks in both directions are plenty of restaurants and bars. In one direction there is a CVS, Walgreens, Dunkin & Starbucks.
The staff at the front desk was very nice and helpful. When we called for extra towels they were there within minutes. Our room was clean and had a fridge, microwave, hair dryer and Bath & Body Works amenities in the bathroom. Some people complained about the rooms that opened to the atrium and I can see how it would be darker but it didn't seem too horrible. Our room did not - it had a window with a view of the Boston skyline which was great (room 614). We didn't use the pool but as stated in some other reviews, the hotel did not smell like chlorine. We also did not utlize the bar or restaurant. The food looked decent as did the bar. However, it only seemed to be open for dinner time. I would suggest not eating or drinking there though and going somewhere else just because they are so many options not just in Boston but in the immediate few blocks. My boyfriend and his friend had a burger at Hops & Scotch and loved it.
We had some a/c issues one of the days but turned it off while we were out and everything was fine when we came back and turned it on again. Other than that, everything was in perfect working order. If I ever return to Boston I would stay here again as it was never a really long T ride to anything in the city and they constantly have cabs along Beacon Street. Word of advice if driving and not utilizing the hotel's parking - you can't park at the meters overnight even if it's the weekend and they aren't charging to park. My BF's friend learned this the hard way. $30 ticket when parking at the hotel's lot would have been $29.
