PERFECTION

Posted Apr 2, 2017
Pros: Check in to Check out, PERFECTION
Cons: n/a
Location: Theater district, walking distance from Emerson College, steps from a metro station. Access to everything.
Ames was located in a beautiful section of Boston, within walking distance from the theater district and Emerson College. The view from the 12th floor was spectacular. The beds were comfortable, and the pillows were the perfect balance of sinky and firm! The bathroom was spacious and supplied with great smelling soaps/shampoos/conditioners and more. The big marble tub was fantastic, and the showerhead was decadent. The concierge was helpful, and the hostess was friendly. The beautiful renovated building was a privilege to spend a night in while visiting Boston. No complaints!

Nice hotel in the heart of old Boston

Posted Mar 16, 2017
Pros: I enjoyed the towel warmer in the bathroom. It was so nice to get out of the shower and have a hot towel. Also, the bed and pillows are comfortable.
Cons: I wish breakfast was free every morning. The complimentary breakfast was only one day. The breakfast is $18 itself,
Location: It is right in the center of old town Boston. Everything is beautiful and there are so many places to ss and lots of places to eat.
The hotel as a whole was very nice. The rooms were just the right size if you don't plan on being in them very much. The hotel was also very quiet and the staff are uber nice.

Unbearable location

Posted Feb 24, 2017
Everything is great except for the noise from passing T. But it's manageable.

Nice Hotel!

Posted Feb 21, 2017 on Hotels
My wife and I came to Boston for a getaway weekend - and loved our stay at the Ames. Everyone was very friendly and helpful - and the room was very comfortable and modern. The breakfast itself was fine - but not a lot of seating - so keep that in mind on a busy morning. The restaurant is under renovation at the moment. It is an easy 15 minute walk to the North End - and just a few blocks from Quincy Market. T stop is right behind the hotel.
