    Wedding

    Just a couple of things: 1. The washers on the shower head need to be replaced. Several times I had to step back into the shower to stop the drip, drip, drip. 2) I loved the multiple outlets next to the bed. I have a sleep machine and did not have to crawl all over the floor to find an outlet. 3). I am sure this a COVID thing but since cleaning the room is no longer an option, larger garbage bins are essential.

    Hotel NEEDS bigger showers.

    The overall stay was ok. But I do have to complain about the shower size. It was so small it was almost impossible to take a propet shower.

    Fantastic Customer Service, Beautiful River View

    My first night I had an issue with my room. There was a leak in the bathroom ceiling, but the staff quickly got me a new room and sent someone to fix the issue. For the rest of my stay, the staff followed up to make sure I had everything I needed and that I was comfortable in my room. The hotel has beautiful views of the Charles River, is pet-friendly, and its rooms have everything you need. But it is the staff that makes this hotel special. I would especially recommend this hotel for weddings and other events. It's a nice space for special occasions.

    Couple's Stay - 4 out of 5 Stars

    Very nice hotel with great staff and service. I loved the bar outside. The check-in and out were very easy. The bar staff was fun and made great drinks. The food at the bar was also great. Note the convenience store is within Starbucks. The area is on the riverfront and we had a great view of the river from our room on the 9th floor. e loved looking out our window every morning and nice. I also appreciated that the window could open and let fresh air in. However, the windows do need a screen treatment. We were very close to dining and ever a Mall! That was super cool. It was close to many of the attractions we wanted to visit, especially the Musuem of Science, which is only a 3 mins walk so. The lobby was so bauaiful and well kept. The room as overall clean and up to date. The bed was comfortable. Improvements: We had a 4 days stay during COVID-19 (July 2021) where I had to request room service.After 3 days, I would expect room service for a towel refresh at least. In the bathroom, the tissue box is under the sink and had molded due to moisture. I throw it away and due to lack of room service, it was not out of the bathroom for most of our stay. So they don't check that often. The room was very small; still do not think it was a Queen compared to my Queen bed at home. The room did not look anything like the picture. It was very small and off the elevator. They should post the Queen room pictures as well as the King room pictures. What they are selling is the King room.

    2 star at bwst

    This is by no means a 4 star establishment: dead spiders in the room / ice machine broken / no one answering reception phone / vending machines broken / night receptionist unwelcoming. 3.5 star restaurant. I cannot recommend. Only bright part was Afrim at the front desk.

    Our stay was great! Staff were amazing and very helpful and friendly. Our only issue was air conditioning. It was 73-75 degrees in our room at all times with the AC on high.
