Pretend you are in Scandinavia!
Posted Sep 13, 2016
Memorable place, ultra-modern, and pleasingly removed from the hubbub of Boston. The energy-efficient aesthetic goes a little too far: There is no lamp in the rooms bright enough to read by, and the decor--steel, brown, black--is awfully cold. How about a bright little throw pillow somewhere?! Most hotels let you opt out of some linen service to save resources. Here, however, if you opt out of laundering (for some point-accumulation gimmick), they won't even MAKE the bed or pick up wet towels you leave on the floor! The breakfast area is bright, spacious, and well-tended. The food choice was good, and, at least when I was there, there was plenty of space to manage the number of people. Whoever "cleaned" my room did nothing but empty the trash. I was allowed to park my hybrid car in a special spot, which was fun.
