We recently stayed here for 4 nights and found the service, welcome, and location to be spot on. We had considered numerous other hotels in Boston before going for this one, and based on location we are very pleased we chose the Kimpton. I would say that if you want to be in an area with a good choice of bars and restaurants nearby, and that in no more than a ten to fifteen minute walk to most of the tourist things then stay here. Our room was kept very clean and had a comfortable bed. Free coffee and tea available in the lobby every day, and a free wine hour at 5pm with nibbles. We were on the second floor facing the street but the outside noise was minimal and did not disturb our sleep. We saw everything we wanted to see in Boston so unlikely to return, but if we did we would be happy to stay here again. Read less

We only spent a night , we were in Boston for a Bruins hockey game . It was a clean comfortable hotel with very little views but we were there for a hockey game . A 2 minute walk from TD garden which was great after the game . Sorry didn't try any bars or restaurants at the hotel .

Cute design hotel that's well located. First attempt they put us in a room, was a crazy amount of fan noise, we called frond desk, and they put us in another room. The guy that came to see us said, I'm not surprised, very noisy room. Makes me wonder why they tried to put us in there in the first place, but then out new room was very nice, and… Read more
