Decent Hotel, away from the city

Posted Jul 2, 2015
Pros: Being surrounded by the green scenery and river.
Cons: The exterior of the hotel, food needs some flavoring and better room Amenities
Location: The hotel is located in a nice central area: close to the City and most historical sites.
Reasons I rated it a 4 Star: Nice scenic location; better location than most busy hotels in Boston 20 minutes from the city Needs upgrading: Exterior of Hotel; Pool; Restroom Equipment Great beds Food needs flavoring and is a little pricey Clean gym with up to date equipment. Parking was never an issue Lots of Green Bushes (ahh fresh and natural oxygen) Great beds! To avoid toll the toll fees, use the Detour option on a GPS, it saved us $$$. Too bad we figured this one out two days prior to our departure. I've been to better Marriott Hotels but must admit it wasn't all that bad, comparing to other hotels located in the city of Boston. It needs a little upgrade; the outside reminded me of a convalescent home or something; however. the interior wasn't so bad. Our room had a river/lagoon view, which we loved waking up to. I loved being surrounded by lots of trees/green and watching the ducks in the river/lagoon was pleasant. It was quiet. Parking was never an issue. The gym was clean but small wtih up to date equipment. We stayed in room 559 and I loved the view. There are entrances on different parts of the building, to avoid long walks to your room from the main entrance (you'll need your room key to gain entry.) Best Clam Chowder can be found in Waterfront (sorry, forgot the name) and Legal Seafood. Our bill was outrageous at Legal Seafood but that was because the lobster sandwitch was priced at $28.00! The calamari at Legal Seafood was expensive and a waste of money.

A pleasant experience!

The entire staff was very helpful. When I looked at the bill, I realized they had charged for parking even though I did not have my car with me. Not only did they remove the charges they took away the charges for the internet.

Nice hotel. Great staff

Posted Jun 29, 2015
Pros: Nice staff, clean facilities and nice amenities.
Cons: Hotel guest should not have to pay for parking
Location: 20 minutes to the city if you know how to drive the roadways around Boston. Didn't get a chance to do anything nearby as my trip for Boston events.
Check in was easy and quick. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable

Pros: Easy access from highway!
I had to work in Newton for the evening, so I brought my kids along so they could watch a pay per view movie and order room service. Unfortunately, the TV in our room wouldn't allow them to order any movies. They sent up a technician but it turned out to be a widespread problem. They said they had a technician coming into the hotel the next day to fix it. When I went down to the front desk they were very helpful and changed our room. I was very pleased that they didn't have any issue, they actually offered. All around it was a lovely stay!!
