We stayed for four nights for fall break mid October. Perfect for a family of four (kids 11 and 13). Five-minute walk to the T red line Kendall/MIT station, but an easy walk across the Longfellow bridge to the heart of the city. We also walked to the Museum of Science, Boston public library, and to Harvard, although you can take the Red line and Harvard is only 2 stations away . Taxi to the Aquarium cost about $13 mid morning.
Upon arriving in BOS we took the Silver line to South Station for a FREE transfer to the red line, which was a nice surprise. Check in/out was quick and easy. Friendly and helpful staff. There was an erroneous charge for data service on one of the days, which was promptly removed. Can't beat the free breakfast and free in-room internet.
The room is equipped with a full kitchen, which was very handy. The only complaint we had was a VERY slow draining sink.
Check out is at noon, but the hotel held our luggage since we had an evening flight out of BOS.
