So here’s the simple bit, the room was lovely and clean. The front desk staff were super friendly and helpful, and the barman was really chatty and cool and made delicious espresso martinis 😁 But what made it that extra special was Ron from the front desk team who helped us with our bags.

He was such a lovely young man who had a long chat with us. This hotel made the last night of what’s been an amazing holiday. This was much better than the Boston Park plaza and we would highly recommend this to anyone. Read less

Good location within walking distance to the Theater District, Chinatown, Boston Common, and the Freedom Trail. In the heart of the Tufts Medical Center so don’t be surprised by hearing an ambulance or two during the night. A convivial atmosphere in the bar/restaurant/reception area most evenings.

Good location within walking distance to the Theater District, Chinatown, Boston Common, and the Freedom Trail. In the heart of the Tufts Medical Center so don’t be surprised by hearing an ambulance or two during the night. A convivial atmosphere in the bar/restaurant/reception area most evenings. In my opinion, better suited for business travelers and couples rather than families. Overall a good choice for a short trip to Boston. Read less

We enjoyed our day. Room was nice but, needs to be updated. Tiffany at the restaurant was lovely and looked after us. I wasn’t expecting that she was on her own especially with room service. I’m F&B duty manager in Ireland. There should be 2 staff on the floor along with room service. It would make her working life easier to have extra staff on… Read more

I’m F&B duty manager in Ireland. There should be 2 staff on the floor along with room service. It would make her working life easier to have extra staff on duty at the same time as it’s busy during the evening. But it was a lovely stay. Read less

It is in Chinatown. Good proximity to the colleges we visited and tourist attractions. A homeless Guy when we first arrived was acting a bit weird but it didnt bother us. The hotel is in the heart of a major city so it's not anything I haven't seen. We booked here since the trolley was accessible. However, there was service disruption on the green line so we drove to our destinations anyway. I wouldn't suggest coming in late like after 9 pm to the location. I felt safe since key is required to use elevator. The entrance to the hotel is locked after certain time and requires a card key/buzzer from desk. Lobby was nice. Starbucks is downstairs. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was amazing. Valet is $63 and can come and go w/o an addtl charge for day. Drainage in the shower was an issue. It's an older hotel but the rooms are fine. Hotel is clean so I give that 4 stars.. Courteous staff enjoyed my stay. The pool I think is connected and I believe is part of the YMCA. I would call to ask. Read less
