I liked its proximity to BU, but the additional fees made a slightly expensive booking over the top. There were $192 dollars in fees and there was no advance notice.The room was fine and the bathroom clean; the staff was lovely but the room needs a refresh--peeling paint, for example. Based on the hidden fees, we'll choose another hotel next time we're in town.
