Great location, small room

I needed a hotel for sleeping only, and that is what I got. Room was very small, with a cramped bathroom and a shower so narrow I had to stand sideways. It was a clean, with a friendly staff and very nice lobby area. Location is great, a few blocks from Boston Commons and the freedom trail. TL;DR - great location, wouldn't recommend basic room if you want to spend any significant time in the room

Nothing wrong but could be better

I cannot fault the great deal we got on this hotel using our Orbucks. But for a 4 star I was underwhelmed by the plasic cups, thin bathroom tissue and facial tissue as well as the small shower. I am barely 5'5 and not wide by nay means and I would hit the shower curtain and wall trying to turn around in the shower. I would not be pleased if I paid full price for this room. Great location, great staff, it is a clean room.

Parking!? Really!!!!!!!

Disappointed! In the description. It says the hotel has parking and IT DOES NOT!!!!! $31.00 in parking garage for 24hrs. Little hint guys, that means you DO NOT have parking!! But they offer expensive valet parking. Lets get it right! Quality of paper goods in the room bad . I had better quality at every other hotel stay this week. To top things off, while I was parking the car, my son took the luggage to the room. He only had a $20.00 in his pocket and the guy took it, and didn't offer any change. He took advantage of him. $20.00 to walk luggage up! Not the friendliest hotel.

Make sure you take the time to establish your route and sites. Know your route and map. The streets are VERY hard to navigate. Not walker friendly.

convenient location

The location is perfect, in the Back Bay, Boylston St and Newbury St just footsteps away. The room was tiny and the hotel was noisy at night. The outside of the building was under construction so that took away from the aesthetics.

Go if you have no other choice

The problem with this hotel is not the traditional kind of issues which is unclean rooms or red light district. For the price which runs in 200+ per night into 300+, you do not get anything 5 star. The AC didn't work for me. The TV remote was also faulty and needed batteries for which they used counterfeit chinese duracell batteries but worst of all, wifi was 12.50 a night. People don't like being fleeced. Most of us hate pulling out the credit card yet again and yet again. So I wouldn't recommend it. If you can go somewhere cheaper, do it.
