We stayed here because my wife had a conference nearby. The hotel is nice and the staff was friendly. It’s not really a great spot if you are looking to be an easy walk to all the downtown stuff but if that’s not a factor, it’s a good option. Note: There is a park next to the hotel “The Lawn on D” that has activities and live music. This is… Read more

My family and I (we're all grown ups) spent a night at this hotel. The rooms were very nice, one with a great view over the city and the other with a larger room and bathtub. We were five people. The price was not bad, and the quality of the hotel was great. It all looks very new. The location of the hotel was fine, it was about a 20 minute walk… Read more

The price was not bad, and the quality of the hotel was great. It all looks very new. The location of the hotel was fine, it was about a 20 minute walk from South Station, which is kind of where the city begins (especially for tourists). Would stay at this hotel again. Read less

Stayed for 4 nights in conjunction with a professional conference. Unfortunately the receptionist was unfriendly at check in, got my reservation mixed up with someone else’s after she had my ID in her hand, and answered my questions about how the hotel’s services worked like I was wasting her time. The decor in the common areas and room is very dark. I felt like I was in a seedy Vegas hotel. If the intention was to be modern, it took it a little too far. The last night of my stay, the hotel was having an event in their lounge, and the music was so loud it traveled up 5 flights to me and continued late into the night. I would not recommend this hotel for business travelers or anyone looking for a hospitality-based experience. If you need a place to drop your bags and explore Boston, this is your stop. Just don’t expect much else. Read less

Apr 22, 2019 GuiMaz Copenhagen, Denmark

The hotel is well located if you are attended conferences either in Westin Hotel or Boston Conference Center. The hotel room was big with a nice view (8th floor). Staff is friendly. The only con is that breakfast are not included, and the pool is quite small with no changing room.

Great hotel and right by the convention center which saves on cab or uber costs. Friendly staff and the folks in the bar area were great to me and my industry colleagues. Close to things like Dunkin, Jimmy Johns and a wine and beverage store. Will stay at this hotel again for PAX East 2020 convention for sure.
