LOCATION WAS THE BEST PART. Walking distance to TD Garden, Science Museaum, a mall, and Cheesecake Factory. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed 2 nights. We expected to have our room "refreshed/tidied up" the 2nd day with new towels, trash bins emptied, beds "remade", etc. None of that happened. Had to ask front desk for new towels and to empty trash. We got towels, but trash remained the entire two days and nights. Shower curtained had dirt stains on it. A dirty pair of socks was left under the "desk" in the room, bed sheet had rip in it, rim around the bed (box spring are) had crumbs on it. One elevator broke down, so we chose to walk 8 flights of stairs b/c our kids were too scared to use it after it was "fixed". Fire alarm woke us up on day #1 at 8:00am. Directions were very unclear as to whether or not we needed to evacuate the building. No explanation was given as to what happened. Pool water was very murky and not well lit (inside of pool) for night swimming. Restaurant was very expensive, and the menu was not "kid friendly". There was only one very little coffee/breakfast area which was not free. We went to the mall across the street to get Dunkin' Donuts instead b/c it was cheaper. We also used vending machine for snacks. Very limited parking spots in the garage and they are VERY small as well. We could barely fit our RAV4. Parking was an additional $42, which was cheaper than hourly parking, but still expensive.

The front desk staff were rude, aggressive, and terrible. The "VIP" access was a complete scam. We received the wrong room after paying in advance for a river view we were placed in a city view room, then we were placed in a tiny corner room with a half window. We absolutely did not get what we paid for. It would have been fine if the front desk staff wasn't so awful and mean. Richard at checkout was like a real life villain. They lied about the cost of parking and said it was validated for all guests. But validated meant they gave us a pass to get in and out, not that it was free. They told me the fee only at checkout which was super shady. The beds were all too big for rhe bed frames. We barely slept and had the worst stay ever. The staff only made things worse from checkin until checkout.

There was a wedding going on the weekend of 11/5/22 and the guests were very rude and loud. They were taking very loudly, creaming, running around in the hallway till 12:30am. I called the front desk but they really didn’t do anything. The hotel has a nice view but that’s about it. The room is nothing special and the bathroom could use more cleaning.
