Bruins at Sonesta
Our family was going to the Bruins game and this location was great. Pool was a bonus for my daughter but it wasn’t the cleanest pool I have seen.

Lack of customer service
My wife left her family necklace at the Room. We called within an hour to the front desk to have them call Housekeeping. The gentleman on the phone seemed like he did not want to be bothered. There was no sense of urgency or follow through on their part. The lack of communication and follow through will never bring us or our family members back. We called the next day to follow up and were told there was no notes and no necklace at the front desk and that we were “out of luck”

Mix emotions
I was very disappointed in are check in. We arrived at 4:30 and they said the room was not ready and won’t be for at least two hours. We came back at 8:30 and it still wasn’t ready. We finally got the key at 9:00 pm. The manager on at the time was less then appealing to deal with. The next morning we went to the desk sorry different manager this name was Karim. And he was very pleasant and accommodating. He helped us with everything we needed and did what he could to make our stay wonderful
