Great location in Boston

Posted May 24, 2015
We only stayed one night, room was very clean and staff very friendly. Room was a bit small, however, so I probably wouldn't want to stay for more than a couple of nights unless you travel a lot in Europe where most of the hotel rooms I've encountered there are very small like these. They do have a lounge with a table and large TV, coffee maker, microwave/fridge where I noticed other guests gathering to talk with coffee etc. Above all, the location was great!

Just perfect for a couple visiting Boston

Posted May 23, 2015
Pros: Convenience, cleanliness, location,, courteous staff.
Cons: Fpr our purposes, 100% perfect!
Location: Walking distance to the Hynes Center (great shopping if that's what you want to do), we took Ubers and Lifts every where and it made it easy to go.
My wife and I needed a place to stay for a few days that was conveniently located to the Hynes Convention Center. This place was perfect. We wanted a no frills room, just the basics. This place was perfect. The staff was wonderful, totally professional. The room was VERY comfortable, as we were only in there for a minimal amount of time, we did not need the "luxury" of some other hotels. The room was kept 100% spotless every day. We had a great view. There's a neat restaurant on the premises and another breakfast/lunch place less than a block away. I would go back to this place in a heartbeat.

A no frills hotel

Posted May 12, 2015
Very adequate accommodations with no frills. There is a kitchen on site but no food service for guests, which is mysterious. Parking in the "adjacent" garage, at $28/day is anything but adjacent when you're hauling luggage. A great place for a couple of nights if you're willing to do a little more for yourself than at a premium hotel.

Very clean, convenient location.

Posted May 4, 2015
Pros: Clean and the location is very convenient to go to places.
Cons: Needs a table for the least.
Location: Shopping, restaurants and museums.
The hotel is in a building that was built in 1929. It was at one time a YWCA facility. Upon arrival at the door via taxi, I was nervous about it. The lobby can also use some update. However, it is very clean and the staff are pleasant. The room was small without closet, desk or table. I mention this to the front desk and I was advised that I should request one room with a table/desk next time. Also, after the first night, the cleaning lady did not remove the coffee bag from the coffee maker and did not leave me new coffee packets. I spoke with the front desk. I was told that the cleaning lady does not remove used coffee bag in the coffee maker until the guest is checked out. This is very strange. The front desk did give me two free coffee. There is a lounge outside the hotel rooms on my floor where you can get k cup coffee for free, but is not convenient in the morning.
