above expectations

Posted May 21, 2015
I was traveling on business during commencement week and ended up staying here as hotels were booked in the Boston area. I went in with fairly low expectations and was pleasantly surprised by my stay at the hotel. The staff was friendly and attentive and they seem to be renovating some of the rooms. The location is superb.

Disappointing, but good location

Posted May 18, 2015
Pros: Location!
Cons: Needs updating.
Location: Near the T. Can travel anywhere easily.
Facilities were disappointing. More like a budget motel than a full-service hotel. But the location is great. Within walking distance of the T and many destinations.

I just wish that you had a lounge there. Other than that, it was very nice.

Economical and Convenient

Posted May 10, 2015
Pros: The Midtown has everything we look for in out-of-town lodging: Cleanliness, friendliness, location and economy.
Cons: I would have liked a diagram of the hotel lay-out to help me navigate the many labyrinthine corridors.
Location: I gave this information in detail in the "Write about your experience" box.
Five adult family members went to Boston May 5-8, 2015 and stayed four nights at the Midtown. The hotel met all our needs --- which do not include frills such as a concierge and chocolates on our pillows. The rooms were roomy enough for three adults, the beds were comfortable, the towels were thick and plentiful, and the coffee provided for the in-room coffee maker was better than most. The staff was very helpful on the severalThe location was perfect: just a ten minute walk in either direction got us to a T stop that gave us access to any part of the city. There were many interesting sites within walking distance. We visited the beautiful public library and its fantastic exhibitions in Copley Square, where we also toured Trinity Church and took in the view from the top of The Prudential Center. We took a taxi for $10 to Fenway for a Red Socks game then walked back to the hotel among crowds of festive baseball fans. Although we are not Christian Scientists, we were happy to find our hotel just across the street from the Christian Science World Research Center with its beautiful grounds and the amazing Mapparium. Enjoying the perfect weather, we walked the mile up Huntington Avenue to the incredible Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum --- the most eclectic collection of art in the world. Of course, we walked the Freedom Trail, the Commons and Public Garden, and Beacon Hill. We did some shopping at Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, and had exquisite Italian food in the North End.

The hotel is not fancy, but was close to where we needed to be. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was large and clean, and the price is reasonable. It was a great stay!

Loud and inconvenient

Posted May 7, 2015
Pros: Location and price
Cons: It's too old to fix.
Location: Near shopping and restaurants. Walking distance to Fenway, town center, and the freedom trail.
Great location and affordable. The hotel is old and only 2 floors tall on a busy street. Loud traffic noise starts at around 3am. The hotel is not roller-friendly. The lobby is street level, separated from both parking and the guest rooms by stairs alone. Really. The elevator goes from parking to the rooms, but not to the lobby level. There are no ramps for rolling luggage, strollers, or wheelchairs. Also annoying is the fact that you can't turn on the bathroom fan without turning on the sink light outside of the bathroom as well.
