Considering the cost of the "City" hotels this one is a bargain but this hotel is not close to the airport and not the city, you will need a car, cab or use their free shuttle. Shuttle wait was about 20 minutes at the airport and on time 9 AM departure from the hotel. From the hotel they will transport you to the train station where you can get the subway to the Aquarium (second stop) for $5 per person R/T. Once out of the subway there are tour rides you can take. We took both the Old Town trolly tour and the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum tour which was a total of $70 for both of us. The trolly tour ride covered quite a distance and a riding tour would be highly recommended unless you have a lot of time and stamina.
Room was clean and I had no complaints about it. All staff were pleasant and asked if there was anything else they could do for us. We had a highway facing room but the road noise was not bothersome unlike the inconsiderate people in the adjoining room. Apparently they believed that the walls were sound proofed when they had normal volume discussions at 11:30 PM & again at 6:30 AM
Breakfast was like walking into an 8th grade cafeteria at lunchtime, staff did a decent job of trying to keep the supplies loaded and since the kids didn't drink coffee yet that was the only station that there was no wait at.
In the end I judge a hotel by the "would I stay there again" question and I would have to answer yes but hopefully not when it's kiddy night.
