Amazing

Posted Jan 30, 2015
Pros: Room was clean, beautiful and extremely comfortable.
It was only a short stay in Boston, but the hotel was so amazing I didn't want to leave. Great location walking distance to great restaurants, bars and great landmarks. I recommend staying here, I will stay here on my next trip back to Boston.

Overnighy for a td garden concert

Posted Jan 28, 2015
Hotel was very clean & staff was extremely friendly. Rooms clean. Pillows & shower fantastic. Beds could have been softer. Having ice machine self accessible versus calling room service would have been handy even if in a lobby location. Coffee machines in room would help too. Otherwise great stay with a perfect location.

Nice time

Posted Dec 30, 2014
Pros: Location!
Beautiful location! The staff was very nice and helpful. The only negative thing that I have to say is that the room was a bit small. We had a room with two double beds. My daughter and husband didn't mind, but it was a little cramped for me.

One night in Boston

Posted Dec 28, 2014
I wanted to stay one night in Boston after a Christmas trip visiting family in NH. I found it using Expedia and it seemed to fit the requirements and the vibe I look for. The staff greeting me warmly and got me to the front desk where a gentleman checked me it with professionalism I ALWAYS expect from a hospitality business that knows how to run a good business. Check in was easy and fast and I was up to my room. It was a very good sized room that was modern, clean, with decent views on a high floor. They set me up with a corner room which is also nice. The room and bathroom kept with the modern theme which I really like and was exceptionally clean. This is something that scores massive points with me when I travel. If a room isn't squeaky clean, don't expect my business again. They nailed it! The location is incredible and walkable to just about anywhere in the downtown core. I was able to spend much of the day shooting photography and finding plenty of placing to eat and go for drinks afterward. The hotel bar was also decent and had a decent crowd in it later in the night when I was ready to unwind. For the price of my room I would expect my breakfast to me included, especially for the selection of items given. Also, I was quoted for breakfast at $9.95 but was charged over $10. Not a huge difference but that tells me that not everyone is versed in their pricing structure. Overall, a great stay. I would stay there again without question.

Nice ambience and design. Convenient location.

Posted Dec 5, 2014
Loved the room design. The bathroom, layouts and location. Great service by the staff. Clean and well kept. A bit too noisy for my taste - both from the street and the other rooms (no wonder they include ear plugs as toiletries). Lighting could be a bit brighter in the room, but overall it is a very nice hotel

Boutique hotel

Posted Nov 21, 2014
Beautiful boutique hotel in downtown Boston. The hotel staff were very friendly and knowledgable. The decor was great to look at. The hotel was located in close walking proximity to many attractions. Only down side was no bathtub.
