nice hotel,

Posted Oct 15, 2014
Pros: location
Cons: service elevators very hard to get up or down when carts are in elevators
Location: we were there for an event did not get much tome to look around
Should be noted that it is more of a younger crowd that stays at this hotel, rooms were very small and had to move night stand to gain access to closet. I am still waiting for receipt ??

Pros: Location, adjacent to T station, can't be beat!
Cons: 1. Layout of bathroom could be improved! Huge shower in small bathroom. 2. Our room was very noisy at night! Sounded like plumbing noises.
Location: BOSTON
In general we were pleased. I'd stay here again, but I'd avoid room 308 because of the loud plumbing noises all night.

Convenient location, next to Riverside T Station.

Posted Oct 13, 2014
Pros: Nice bar/lounge area. Quiet enough.
Cons: Walkways in parking area look like parking spots so people park there. Some kind of marker would help that.
Location: Nothing to do right there; it's next to the end of the Green Line in Riverside so you can get downtown in 1/2 hr
We stayed here instead of Waltham and couldn't have been happier. The room was nicely decorated, clean and the bed was comfortable. The blinds were a bit weird; you have to open the curtain to close the shade and the light switches had no obvious affect on the lights until we figured which switch powered the other switches.

Convenient location

Posted Sep 9, 2014
Pros: Convenient location. Restaurant had great food.
Nice hotel with parking. Hotel restaurant is trendy and has good food. The restaurant service is a little spotty. The hotel staff are excellent and the facilities are clean and pleasant to be around. Shower only (no tub), rooms have hardwood floors. No refrigerator in room which may be an issue for longer stays.

Place to stay when visiting family

Posted Aug 26, 2014
Pros: Proximity to family home.
Cons: See comment in one.
Location: Things to do in Boston proper.
We spent minimum time at the hotel. Room was small, insufficient number of chairs, curtain to block out AM light (East facing window) inadequate, and too few places to hang towels. One breakfast sufficient to eat elsewhere as food was far too greasy.

Nice hotel close to the MBTA Green line.

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: Location, clean, friendly
Very friendly. We arrived before check-in time, but they stored our luggage and brought it up to the room when the room was ready, so when we arrived back all we needed to do was get the key to the room.

Great hotel in Newton for any length of stay

Posted Aug 16, 2014
I was in Boston, Newton technically, only for a night and wish I could have been here longer. The hotel is very clean, the rooms are fully updated and in perfect condition, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I have no complaints at all and would recommend this hotel to anyone, unless you plan on trecking it downtown every day. It's nice that its 200m from Riverside station, but it's still about a 35 minute ride to downtown (Park St.).

Did not meet expectations

Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: The location was convenient for us. Further more it's right by a light rail station which takes you to downtown Boston in 15-20 minutes.
Cons: See above.
Location: It's in a suburb and there is nothing in walking distance other than a small College and private homes but rapid transit station is very close.
Stayed for the weekend to attend local party in Newton. This is billed as luxury hotel and the Pool is a big draw and is very nice. However there are other amenities I expect. There is no store for purchase of necessities or even a newspaper and the Hotel is not in an area where there are any such stores. There is no refrigerator or mini-bar in the room. There is only a shower not a bathtub and the way the shower is configured there is no good way to turn it on and test the water temperature without actually getting in.

Attempt at higher end but a miss

Posted Aug 5, 2014
Pros: pool area nice
Location: location was decent distance from boston and train station
Feels like a refurbished holiday inn. Attempted to check-in early but no rooms available until 4pm. Not their fault but was told to keep trying back or come back after 4pm. Staff was nice when we finally were able to check-in. Our room was so small we had to put a chair on the bed to let the kids play. scuffs and scratches on cabinets, etc really detracted from their update. Noisy....doors opening and slamming down the hallway until 2am. All of this would be expected for a sub $100 room but not for $240/night.
