I booked this hotel because it was supposedly near the airport with a free shuttle. However, when you get off public transportation at the subway station it is another 40 minutes or so to the hotel. This hotel is not near enough to public transportation to get into the City easily. You can take the shuttle to the subway station and then get the subway, but this means you lose a lot of time getting to and from the hotel and the station. Not easy to go into Boston from this location.
The price was good - the room was fine and the service was excellent. However, how this hotel gets to call itself "airport" I don't know - it is not an accurate description. If you have your own transport, this hotel is probably fine, but if you need public transport and/or near the airport, book elsewhere.
