I spent a few nights at the hotel in October. I was attending a course in the area, which was within walking distance of the hotel, thus why I was booked into the hotel. The other option nearby this hotel is the Courtyard Marriott - which is nicer but also more money. The hotel is right across the street from the train which made it very convenient to get around Boston. I was downtown Boston in 10-15 minutes! I had breakfast each morning in the hotel restaurant. I thought it was pretty pricey for what you got. The buffet was $13 I think, and there wasn't much selection, and it was the same thing everyday - no variety. The staff at the front desk were always very busy, so there was usually a line-up to talk to them. I found when I did get to talk with them they were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were a bit drab - the lighting wasn't very good and the furnishings, carpet etc. are quite dated. The bathroom wasn't very clean when I first arrived - but the housekeeper did a good job at cleaning it the next day when I pointed it out to her. My biggest complaint about the hotel is the elevator - it is VERY slow and there is only 1 so you don't have any choice but to wait. I often waited a few minutes for it, and there aren't many floors! Most times I took the stairs, unless I had too much to carry. There aren't fridges or microwaves in the room but they can provide them free of charge on request. I requested to have a fridge in the room and it was brought up promptly.
