Not worth the hassel

Posted Aug 24, 2013
Pros: The location to everything.
Cons: The windows and insulation quality. And the parking situation. Valet would have been a safer option.
Location: across from the Boston Commons (park like setting). It is walkable to the financial district, the North End (great restraunts), Beacon Hill
Truthfully, value is subjective. Therefore, I'll stick to the facts. The location of the hotel is accessible to key areas of Boston. Although it is good, it was also bad. There is no designated parking for their guest. You have two choices: street side parking (but you need to move your car before 8am) and that option is pure luck OR park in the underground garage beneath the Boston Commons which is located just across the street. Seems like a reasonable option except for the fact that the garage is huge with multiple exits. Finding a parking spot near the appropriate exit is very difficult because of barricades and lack of direction. If your lucky enough to get close to the correct stairwell/elevator, you still need to carry your luggage behind you and walk to the hotel entrance which isn't just around the corner. My daughter and I were not fortunate to find street side parking and had to use the underground garage. It was after dark and I felt unsafe. We did make it to the hotel. It was clean and the staff was fine. But the noise that came from the street was annoying. I got out of bed twice just to see if the window was open. It sounded like we were outside. I've spent several nights in NY city and never experienced the excessive noise level like at this hotel. Irritating and disappointing . The complimentary made-to-order breakfast couldn't make up for the sleepless night.

Fantastic part of downtown Boston.

Posted Jun 27, 2013
This is a great little hotel in Beacon Hill. Very comfortable, intimate and personable. It has a well known restaurant as part of the hotel and includes breakfast as part of your hotel fee (except for gratuity). The breakfast is great. Very nice and delicious. Peter, the owner was wonderful. One of the staff Andrew were superb with us!! I would stay again for sure, especially if staying where I would be using the room more. If on a budget, then perhaps too pricey for a 2-3 night stay in Boston. But most hotels in the city are pretty expensive. Overall, loved it and would return!!

Lovely Small Hotel

Posted Apr 11, 2013
This was my first time in a small hotel like this one. I was surprised at the small size of the room, but perhaps that's typical for this kind of hotel. I accidentally left something in my room and they are sending it to me at no charge - very nice. I would totally recommend this place.

Great boutique hotel in a great location

Posted Oct 13, 2012
Small hotel with small rooms but in a great area of Beacon Hill one block from parking and the Boston Commons. Start of the freedom trail just on the other side of the park (Boston Commons). Again the rooms are small but well appointed. Staff is great. Breakfast was excellent at their Bistro. When we go back to Boston we will be staying here again.

Would return.

Posted Apr 26, 2012
Small but very elegant room, well equipped (bigger rooms available at higher price). Restaurant very pleasant but overpriced. Free wifi that worked! Interesting style due to origins as historic house near Chestnut, one of the most beautiful streets in the Beacon Hill area. Staff very helpful.

Great boutique style hotel in a great location

Posted Oct 12, 2011
Very friendly staff and good food. We were a little concerned about possible street noise but this was not a problem even though we were located on the first floor on the corner of Charles St. Great location for exploring all the major sites on foot. Very comfortable room but the bath had mold ( our only criticism )
