Wouldn't stay here again
We booked and stayed at this hotel for one reason, PRICE. Both the Red Sox and the Patriots were in town for the weekend and hotel prices all around Boston were through the roof. This is the smallest hotel room I have ever stayed in anywhere in the USA or around the world. The twin beds were the most uncomfortable beds I have ever tried to sleep in. I would not stay here again.

Adequate for a business trip but not for a vacatio
New hotel that is minimalist in its facilities. The rooms are clean and adequate but small and the twin beds in my room were super small.

Nice Boutique Hotel in convenient location
So liked our stay at Porter Square! We’ve been to Boston many times to visit family attending college in Boston and various other trips! Very hip hotel! Great location to pick up the Red Line or Lyft in to Boston. Friendly desk clerks! Easier to drive to then driving around closer in. Much more reasonable rates! Will absolutely stay here next time in Boston!
