    5/5 Excellent

    They are currently renovating so the restaurant was closed, otherwise everything was fantastic. Every single individual behind the desk was awesome, helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable. Every recommendation they made that’s excellent.

    Convenient location. Friendly staff! Pool was closed for the season.

    4/5 Good

    The hotel was conveniently located and the staff was helpful and friendly. I didn’t notice any room upgrade, but the room was nice. And while we were given a $15 food voucher there was no restaurant and no minibar in the room so we did not use it. There was room service, but there is very little you could get under $15

    5/5 Excellent

    The room was large with very comfortable beds. Power sockets with USB charging ports in multiple locations within the room meant that charging phones was very convenient. There was space for my kettle and a fridge for the milk so that we could have a proper cup of tea! The location is great, the Prudential subway station exit is right in front of the hotel, with Copley Square and Boylston and Newbury Streets a short walk away. The hotel was undergoing a lobby refurbishment at the time though (we were there at the beginning of October), and the roof top pool is only open in the summer so we couldn't get to the roof which was a bit of a shame, but that actually had only a minor impact on on stay.

    Great hotel in fab location. Staff are wonderful. Really clean but currently being renovated so bit of noise. No restaurant and bar close. Breakfast room service only.
