Hate to be a downer with so many good reviews, as that's what I used to ultimately choose Godfrey. Right off the bat, was not greeted or assisted by the valet/staff 3 ft away. After unloading the bags, had to ask if he could help with the car. Otherwise all staff were great. Had a broken AC unit 1st night and after they checked it, said just give it time. Came back to the room late & it was worse. We had to pack up & move everything ourselves and a Queen room wasn't available. They did give us a voucher for $20 for coffee, but for a total - with parking & fees, of $1k for 2 nights, the experience really could have been better. Great location though & as most reviews mentioned; clean. Read less

The Godfrey has been a wonderful discovery. It's an easy (15 minute) walk from South Station, and its location makes it a fine home base for the theaters and museums in the central part of the city. There's a T stop very near the hotel, and Boston Common and Boylston Street are a short walk from the hotel. Rooms are modern and spotless, and the staff is friendly and very helpful. After dinner and a show in the city, we returned to find a handwritten note on the bed thanking us for choosing the hotel. Fridge in the room, lots of closet space, plenty of outlets for charging devices, complimentary cookies and water, etc. There's a very nice coffee shop adjacent to the hotel which connects to the lobby.

The Godfrey Hotel is outstanding. The hotel itself is beautiful, the rooms spacious and clean, but what really stands out is the service. Impeccable. Location of this hotel puts you in walking distance to everything!

Wonderful, welcoming and spotless. The hotel is located walking distance to many things. The staff is attentive, engaged, and helpful. The adjoining coffee shop is a lucky addition for a quick breakfast or caffeine fix! Loved it

The staff was so kind and accommodating. The rooms were a little small, but clean, comfortable, and modern. The amenities were great! The Godfrey offers a complimentary Polaroid camera which was so fun to capture retro memories! Would definitely stay again!
