This hotel is just a mile from Fenway, steps from the Prudential Tower and Thorton's (a GREAT Breakfast / Lunch restaurant) and many of the sites around mid town Boston, The room was comfortable and fairly clean. I recommend this hotel.

Good location but dingy and in need of updating. Barely got soap and coffee in the room. Be aware there are stairs from the lobby up to first floor and elevator. ... very inconvenient.

Plus there was no controlling the heat or air. The thermostat in the room did nothing and when we called the front desk they said the hotel was "on circulation" so no ac or heat ... they suggested we open the window if the room was stuffy. Could be a really great hotel ... at a minimum they need new flooring! Read less

Sometimes it’s the little things.

We stayed in room 273 on April 30. The room, cleaned by housekeeper Rina, was clean and everything was there. People checking us in and out were pleasant and efficient. The hotel is in a good location and is easy to get to.

Reasonably priced hotel in easy reach to most places, ie hop on hop off, restaurants, shops etc. Very old and dated hotel but our room was clean with plenty of linen. Our experience with staff was limited but they seemed helpful. Would not go back there
