    Terrific experience. Only inconvenience is no parking on-site, so you have to park at a garage a couple blocks away.

    Nice stay, minor misses

    Our stay was quite good. The hotel was quiet and centrally located. The downside was we were only there 2 days and while breakfast is part of the stay, we only received 1 day. Also there was not the access to water other than the tap. Most green hotels have a place to fill your water bottles. If that was a thing, we didn’t see it. Minor things but overall would recommend

    What a find!

    This place was amazing. Old world charm in updated rooms. Nice touches. Nespresso coffee machines. Remodeled bathrooms. Newspapers in the library where you can eat, off the garden. Reasonably priced rooms. Great front desk staff. Near the Prudential center where you can park 24 hours for about $40, the going rate at all the nearby hotels. Near large shopping and small shops and restaurants. Wow!

    We had a good stay. We love the art theme and the library. Great location. Wireless did not work well for us. Toilet paper holder was broken. Room was quite small - better for one than two. I would stay here again. A lovely place.
