Excellent hotel. Accomodations and Service were outstanding. Restaurants and food were very good. The ladies at check-in were very hospitable, knowledgeabe, and very professional. I would reccommend this hotel to others visiting the Boston area.

The bed and shower were perfect! The room was clean, the facilities and amenities were great, and the staff was very pleasant and professional. I stayed due to business, but when I come to Boston with my family I plan on staying here again.

Godfrey had availability and was very accommodating when the Fairmont Hotel overbooked and gave away my room. The Godfrey staff was very helpful and sympathetic to my issue. Even though I found them because of issue elsewhere I was very impressed with hotel and would choose to stay there in future.

This hotel is in pristine condition, lovely modern rooms and all the communal areas are very cool. The location was perfect, walking distance to anything you would want to see in Boston. All the staff, from doormen to reception were very friendly and professional. I would definitely stay here again!

When we checked in and out the staff didn’t feel very welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were very clean and tidy. The showers were comfortable and the beds as well. The location was walking distance to a lot of things.
