            • Great location near subway, within walking distance to many historIcal spots in Boston and overall good value for the money. Decent for the price, needed a better quality selection of basic foods for sale in the lobby and all of the staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was clean, continental breakfast included pancakes.

              All the hotels in the area are expensive.

            • The location is awesome and virtually all hotels in downtown Boston are well over $200. Ralph at the front desk is fantastic, on a cold night, the window curtains hung in such a way as to block a good portion of the heater.

              The breakfast room was small and the breakfast very poor quality, your staff were great.

              Noisy next to bar and slow elevator.

            • I loved the location and a few blocks from little italy. Hotel rooms are very nice, staff are helpful and bed is very comfortable. Continental breakfast is free.

              Next to loud bar and the furniture looked all dated and the stained. The elevator also too old.

              The hotel entrance and main lobby is not very impressive.

            • The location was great, the hotel was clean and nice, the prices were very reasonable for Boston. Staff were very helpful, the room was well decorated and the bedding was comfortable, the complementary breakfast service was efficient and satisfactory. Facilities were very good.

              That's just not my style ususally, very loud bar/club outside the window and elevators were to small and had a difficult time getting the luggage cart in.

            • The location is good and a few nice pubs and sports bars in the parallel streets. Hotels you recommend to travelers must ensure trustworthiness as well and the staff is beyond amazing. Bath is plenty large, breakfast is great very filling.

              Poor ratings for the shawmut inn and small lobby. Shower water pressure way too low and also the mattress is a little hard.

            • Nice location in downtown/ and near to subway station. Great hotel walk in shower, the price is reasonable and across the street from the Boston Garden easy access to Celtics. Secondly, the staff is awesome and room is clean.

              Worst place we stayed in north amerIca and the bed was very uncomfortable and there was a blood stain on one of our pillows. The elevator was broken.
