Perfect Place to Stay
From location to service to just plain nice digs, I’d be happy to stay here any time I’m in Boston. It is right on the green line, making easy access to anywhere in the city.

Just about Perfect
Excellent two-night stay related to a local conference. I also enjoyed a conference reception at the hotel. My room was spacious, spotless and so comfortable. Everything was perfect. The only thing I didn't appreciate was a $25/day fee for what I saw as extras I didn't especially care about -- coffee and snacks, which were in a basket at the front desk. The fee seemed a bit out of line for one person, and I didn't appreciate the mandatory nature of the fee.

Good6.0
A so-so spot to stay.
Pubic hair on the bathroom floor. Not a comfy mattress. I thought it was priced a bit high for the accommodations. Location is great. We ordered room service and was told it would take a little longer because they had lunch crowd.
