There are only two spots to park under covered parking to get out, walk in, and check in. Monday afternoon desk staff did not even greet me! To check me in seemed more of a chore than being their job! As a Diamond member, this was very disheartening.
When I arrived in my room, there was already a bottle of water and snack waiting. However, that was the only time during my entire stay.
If you decide to stay here...request a room toward the back of the building and away from the busy street. The doors to the rooms do not seal and even hallway traffic can be heard walking on the carpet. Most people allow the door to slam behind them....jarring the room next to it, so you probably will be rudely awakened when the person next door to you comes in a 2am.
This Hampton does not offer a microwave or fridge in any of their rooms. I had to go downstairs to heat up my dinner...beg for permission to use the microwave in the pantry.
Breakfast is the standard SYSCO food service processed, frozen, then re-heated food. Every morning I had to ask for a to go bowl AND lid for my oatmeal. The first morning, the hostess only brought me a bowl...
Parking is very cramped. If you don't get to the Hampton before 7pm...you probably will not find a parking spot in the garage. Seems that the garage is not monitored as many cars park over the line and are never asked to move. One car sat for three days taking up two parking spots.
The only good things were the standard Hampton comfy bed and the wifi connectivity worked great and I never lost signal.
There are many other hotels in the Boston area with similar pricing that far exceed this Hampton.
