            I love everything about the hotel, the suites, and the feel of old world. However the location is a bit out of the way to the center.

            There is nothing to dislike.

          • Family with children

            Excellent location: walking distance to Fenway, shopping, mit

            We reserved a room that we were told would have two beds plus a sofabed. (Booked.net didn't allow us to do this but we called the hotel after making the booking.) But when we arrived they had no such rooms available, so we had to squeeze into one bed plus a sofabed (both queen). It wasn't horrible but we ended up paying over $100 a night extra for the same bedding (worse, really, since the sofabed wasn't of course as good as a normal bed) as we would have gotten at another hotel. So if you are a couple and want the extra sitting area of the suite, this hotel might be worth it. But if you need the bedding, you'd do just as well to go to a standard hotel, and it would be cheaper.

            overpriced. For the professed quality of the hotel, shoulnd't have to pay an extra $3 for a newspaper.

            The staff was excellent and the room was beautiful.

            The in room computer never worked. The room we were given, while very nice, had no view at all. We were told we were "upgraded," but the room was in the very back of the hotel and looked out over an alley. Anyone booking should ask about the location of the room and what view the room has.

          • Older travelers

            The beds were very comfortable. The staff was helpful.

            The 1 bedroom suite did have a separate living room but it was not separated by a solid wall. French doors allowed privacy from direct view but there was a doorway opening to the side of the room which did not allow audible privacy. Bathroom small, pedestal sink with limited shelf space and the toilet was very close to the access door. The A/C worked but not if you want a full blast of cold in the summer or while sleeping.

            Room 610 (small suite) poor value for money due to claustrophobic view from all windows and small bathroom, no coffee-making facility and no free wifi (there was something in the room which did not work) Overpriced for the product offered and the standing to which the hotel obviously aspires.
