Great location/Less-than-great property

Posted Apr 22, 2015
Pros: Very friendly, very nice, very helpful staff
Cons: Rooms need updating
Location: Everything! Great restaurants, bars, shopping. Right in the middle of some of the best Boston has to offer.
The Loews was pretty disappointing especially given the high room rate (although it was days before the Marathon which puts pressure on rates). Rooms were very dated in decor and walls/carpets were dirty. Ceiling sprinkler was covered with a grocery store plastic bag. AC was broken, making first night room stay pretty unbearable given the outside temperatures. AC was fixed next day so 2nd night much better. On the positive side, the staff was very nice and very apologetic about the AC situation, which is certainly not their fault. I was told the rooms had been redone two years ago which came as a surprise given overall condition of furnishings, carpet, bathroom. The location is stellar. Right in the heart of Back Bay. You can't beat it if that is where your trip takes you. However, there are better and better-priced properties in the area than this.

Boston Marathon stay

Posted Apr 22, 2015
Expensive place to stay during marathon weekend, but a fantastic location near the finish line. Nice hotel with a superb staff that was well prepared to host and cater to runners. Overall, even though it was expensive, I found it to be a value.

Nice hotel for business trip

Posted Apr 7, 2015
Stayed 5 nights for conference at BCEC which is 20 min walk away. Handy for the T and plenty of sightseeing opportunities. Hotel staff excellent, plus free coffee facilities in lobby.

Nice hotel close to railway station

Posted Apr 6, 2015
Hotel was very comfortable, clean and in a good location for Copley square and other restaurants. Must catch trolley around Boston to get an idea of where you can go. I recommend NOT to hire a car as it is very confusing in Boston itself and a number of one way streets. Must see Fenway park, especially if you live the red socks. Overall, a comfortable stay in a very pretty and cold city at the time. Need at least 4-5 days to understand and experience the history of the city.
