We booked this room through a third party and got a great price and still received beyond great service. When we first arrived we were told that an early check in was absolutely not an option and were very disappointed since we had events that evening that would mean we wouldn't be able to check in until after midnight. As it turned out they staff put in extra effort and were able to get us into a very nice room. Ralph is exceptionally friendly and helpful, going above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable: offering local dining (in or out) suggestions, transportation options etc. Our room was recently renovated, modern (not necessarily my aesthetic) but very smartly designed. Lots of outlets, a rare find in most hotel rooms. Our room had a separate bedroom with a Queen bed and separate television and a small lounge area with a pull out sofa bed, television, mini fridge and microwave. Comfortable bed and pillows. The hotel is very close to the T, just a couple of blocks down the street. The public transportation system is fairly easy to navigate in Boston but we did find that it was a little more time consuming coming back late at night. Also near the hotel, within walking distance there is a shopping plaza with a grocery store, package store, McDonalds, Marshall's and a drug store. Very convenient. Breakfast was included, typical of HIE, eggs, sausage, potatoes, bread/pastry, fruit, cereal etc. Of course the traditional HIE cinnamon rolls too. On our last evening there we ordered in and the hotel provided a nice list of places that would deliver. The list even included staff recommendations and was well rounded: Pizza, Sandwiches, Italian, Chinese, Thai etc. The place we chose from the list (and I can't recall the name) was fantastic, great food, great prices, quick delivery. Internet was included and worked without a hitch. The one suggestion I would have for the Management is to have the elevator inspected soon....the inspection expired a year ago and though it seemed perfectly safe it was odd that the numbers didn't go above 6 even when getting off on the 7th & 8th floors.
