Fabulous 8.8 From 1,401 reviews

Fair 4.0
Pool closed, sadly
Was beyond disappointed that the pool was closed the entire morning of our stay for cleaning — from 9a-12p. It's exactly why we booked it over other nearby hotels!

Exceptional 10.0
Boston weekend
I loved the fact when I checked in with my family, at about 11am that there was a room ready for us.. That is huge.. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and friendly.. The only issue i experienced was that the concierge desk made me feel like I was bothering them if I had a question.. Other than that, I would recommend this hotel.. The hotel is a couple of blocks from the train,which takes you wherever you need to go in Boston..

Poor 2.0
An Overheated Nightmare! Stay Away!!!
I will start with the only good thing to say, the location is AWESOME! Went for 4th fireworks and Phish at Fenway. Nearby T stop gave access to all of Boston. Now the rest!! Check in AMAZINGLY slow. Only 2 staff for 10 check ins and they were completely overwhelmed. Then you have to park in a space that is too small for a smart car let alone an SUV and pay $45 per night. Wow. Our room was 78 at check in with no AC Front desk said go to fireworks and they would address ASAP. We returned to 82 degrees. Not good after coming in from 91 outside. Their answer, split the family up into two one bed rooms at 1 am. Kids were NOT happy and both new rooms were 79 degrees. Staff said room would be free. Next morning told us to pack up and when we get back from going out our bags would already be moved to a new room. Upon return staff had no clue what I was talking about and our bags were still in old room. After complaining again they moved us to a new room and WE moved our own bags. 78 degrees in the new room. Apparently an issue with entire hotel! Couldn’t complain again so just accepted a bad nights sleep! When booking this hotel the view, location and pool were what made up pay a little more then we wanted After this experience I would advise all to STAY AWAY!! Believe me I was not the only one complaining this past weekend. Also 2 days after check out and still no refund for the first night as promised. Utterly disappointed and definitely would not recommend this hotel!!!!

Very Good 8.0
Hotel is great! Location was great! Close to Harvard & airport. Right across the street is a mall with good restaurants. The Museum of Science was within walking distance. The only negative is that the walls & doors are paper thin. You can hear people in the hall and next door.
