Newbury in a Nutshell
You will fall in love from the outside alone. This hotel is in a great location! Walk either way on the street to shop til you drop and eat whatever your heart desires (it reminds me of SoHo NY). And it’s also a doable walk to other great places not on Newbury. Another highlight is that you get a real breakfast every morning (bacon, eggs, potatoes, pancakes, and fruit). That was a pleasant surprise! The staff were very friendly and accommodating. And the hotel has a nice restaurant connected where you will receive 15% off when you dine in. Things you should know: The hotel has charm but is not modern/fancy at all, so if that’s a must for you this is not the hotel for you. Also, the room itself is small and so is the shower. And lastly, the room does not have a microwave nor does the hotel have one in the common area you can use so no take out for you! That being said, if you don’t plan on being in your room a lot and want to be in a hot spot, book it!

Enjoyable homey stay!
Excellent visit - there for 4 nights for business. Very welcoming and flexible staff, helpful with keeping bags for a few hours following checkout, and generally acommodating. Breakfast was a nice perk. Minor bummer was no real gym, but in summer, running/walking around the Charles is perfect anyway. Not really a big deal. Patisserie pastries in the PM were cute. Comfortable room. Overall a wonderful stay. Thank yoU!

Great quaint place to stay, especially if you're not staying long. Not the most soundproof place (you can hear people walking in the halls or talking outside at the restaurant below), but if you understand that you're in a city then it's fine. I really appreciated that the front desk expedited my check-in because I was super early; I was willing to stay in the lobby but she was kind enough to get the room ready for me early so I could freshen up before my appointment. Neighborhood had places to shop, eat, and relax. Most tourist spots were within a walking distance. Bathroom was clean, shower on the small side though. Definitely would recommend to stay here if you want an airbnb feel in a hotel setting. Some constructive criticism: while sitting in the lobby, I could hear the conversations between the manager and employee, which definitely should've been behind closed doors. Maybe next time, close the door -- I don't think it's wise to let guests overhear that the elevator broke down and your reaction when a guest complained about it or overhear you reprimanding the maid about inventory and laundry. Second, the service was spotty; the first host (asian girl with glasses) that I came across was nice and expedited my check-in, but the last host (older white lady) I interacted with just let me walk into the manager's office to get my bag that I asked to be held until my bus departure...not even an offer to get it for me or to check the hold tag ticket I had.
