    location period!

    The hotel is an excellent starting point for walks around Boston and basically every sight is in a 10 minute reach. The rooms are small but clean and nicely designed.

    Great location almost right on Boston waterfront. Close to the historial red trail, restaurants and bars. Spacious room and bathroom (with a shower only). Comfortable bed. Great value for money. A food supermarket was two doors down, which was very convenient. Irish pub right next door, smelt like stale beer but we stayed on a Sunday night and it was quiet.

    We liked the style of the hotel and the quality of the rooms. The CD player and use of a local guide book was very useful too

    When in the bathroom, I could hear people talking in the adjacent room.

    The location is great. We loved the convenience of the inner harbor, blue line subway from airport, trolley, Freedom trail, and Quincey Market. Bedding was nice, bathroom was contemporary, and everything was clean and updated.

    We arrived at 9 am in the morning and they let us checkin at that time. Was able to freshen up before seeing Boston. Clean room with awesome sound system. Bring dvd and CDs and listen to music or watch your own movies.

    A little noisy from Shopping center and night clubs nearby during late evening early morning. We were on 4th floor but facing the Fauniel Hall area.

    Hotel was very handy to Waterfront and also to shops, rooms could mybe do with updating, but good value for money. Free Coffee and Tea a welcome bonus.

    The hotel is literally 10 mins by taxi from Logan Airport. The room was very big and comfortable - we stayed in an atrium room which doesn't have a view to the outside so it was extremely quiet - and the bathroom was also a good size. The hotel is very close to the Financial District and also to the shopping areas and there were plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from within a 5 minute walk. I really enjoyed my stay - the staff were very pleasant and helpful with great recommendations about trips and where to eat. I would certainly plan to stay here again as I thought it was excellent value for money.

    Free coffee at the lobby. (Sometimes empty.....) Room making was quit good.

    No laundry service at weekend. Terrible noize from the music club (?) down stairs. The window was out of order, and I could not shut closely. So I was suffering from the noize from outside during night. Water pressure of the shower was very low, and no hot water. Just warm water.

    The location is perfect. You can walk to all of the main attractions in Boston.

    The location was extremely accessible to city attractions. The free internet was a nice touch.

    There was not much leeway on check in and check out times.
