              Good large modern room with tea & coffee. Very nice breakfast area. Nice staff and shuttle bus drivers. It's not right in the city or in a particularly nice area, but it is very easy to get to by a number of bus routes including the silver line, if you are happy to walk just e few minutes. The hotel recognises its location handicap and makes up for it with the free shuttle service. The drivers are helpful and friendly.

              Just be prepared it's not in town or on a train stop. But it is near buses, and the shuttle will have you at the Boston Pops in just a few minutes.

              Staff were freindly and helpful, beds were very comfortable.

              Well, toilet broke but was fixed, windows were hard to close took 2 people. Phones also not working, so hotel really need to have small issues updated and taken care of.

            • Single
              8.2

              Answers to question 2 suggest I was mostly satisfied. Indeed this hotel's worst problem is its location. They try to offset this handicap with a courtesy van, but one cannot rely on this solution for business meetings and schedules

              Large room, very clean. Complimentary business centre and breakfast.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              Everything in the hotel was good, no complaints. The hotel offered a free shuttle to take you to the closest "T" stations which is nice. After my first day there I understood why this service is offered.

              The hotel is located in the slums. The area is full of crack heads and winos and you hear police sirens constantly throughout the night. Everything was good “in” the hotel, but the location of the hotel is poor. I would not use this hotel again based solely on the location.

            • Single
              5.0

              Large room size, large parking place for free

              Boring neighborhood

            • Couple
              5.8

              The room was very spacious. Due to the window to the back we didn't hear much of the traffic noise. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle service to some of the city's hot spots. This was very helpful as the hotel is located at the border to the industrial district which you don't want to walk in the dark and the next public transportation is minutes away.

              Some of the front desk clerks appeared to be only halfheartedly interested to help us when our online reservation hadn`t been sent to their fax machine at the time of our arrival. They let us wait and even didn`t offer any assistance to contact the booking agent to speed things up. I had to do the call from my private mobile instead. Very disappointing service. The business room was equipped with 2 extremely slow PC's - at least a complimentary service. Last but not least, our room had 2 separate beds instead of 1 king bed as our reservation called for. At check-in, there was no advise from the clerk to this change in any form. Location too far outside of city center for a city trip and in order to explore the city by foot.

              8.8

              The size of the rooms, it was well kept and tastefully decorated, breakfast and parking included. Although not an attractive neighborhood it felt perfectly safe and was very close to the area we wanted to visit in Boston.

            • Family with children
              8.8

              For a trip into Boston, this place is a great value. It is one of the few hotels that can comfortably accommodate a family of five. The complimentary breakfast was excellent, with a surprising variety of options. I have stayed here twice, and would go back again.

              I was a little uncertain about the safety of the parking, because of its location, but I have stayed here twice without any problems.

            • Couple

              The staff has been very kind all the times.

              The shuttle to downtown is great; but it would be better if you provide it to the train station.

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              Enjoyed the free shuttle service as well as the breakfast buffet. Only reason I reduced the rating for housekeeping was a french fry that was under the fridge cabinet when we arrived on Friday and was still there when we left on Monday.

              I stayed here for the Boston 2010 Marathon and it was perfect! The staff was very accomodating, as well as the shuttle drivers. They all did anything they could to make my experience better...right down to clapping for me as I entered the lobby after completing the marathon.

            • Couple
              9.6

              Very nice for the money. Very clean, and great staff. The location wasn't perfect, but the shuttle service was great and I will definitely consider this location for my next Red Sox game...hopefully they win a couple in 2010. We were on the 6th floor and they brought our continental breakfast to our room too!

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              The room was perfect for four friends visiting the city! We had two beds and a pull out couch, so there was plenty of space for everyone. The T is only about half a mile away, and at least during the day, it wasn't a bad walk. The breakfast had a great variety, and one of my friends loved the pizza vending machine for his nighttime snack.

              When we checked in, the girl at the desk said the room was $50 more than what I was quoted. I was rather upset. The next morning, however, the AM person behind the desk charged me the rate I was quoted on Booked.net without any comment by me.

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              The impeccable behaviour of the staff, the excellent housekeeping,the complimentary shuttle services to various locations as well as pick up arrangements.
