Great location - very freindly staff

Posted 5-Mar-2015
Pros: Room size, as was just me so it was just the right size & I'm a big guy so comfy bed & shower am all good. Again staff all seemed so very helpful.
Cons: maybe the breakfast as it was just bread for the most part but did like the variety of juices as well. Having the tv central to the bed maybe.
Location: location as great as I like bars & there was a plenty within walking distance. Was easy to find as it stood out being an old brick building.
location - location - location!!! Right by the rail system, resturants, bars & even a Trader Joe's. I'm a pretty simple person as was never really @ the hotel other then to sleep or a quick break. Right by the airport shuttle as well. Staff very friendly & helpful. Lots of info at the hotel on things to do & places to go & again staff were always willing to help. Staff 5 stars!!!

Nice hotel in Back Bay

Posted 4-Mar-2015
Was suprised at how nice this hotel lobby was based on reviews I had read. It was very nice and clean. Check in was simple and easy. The rooms are dated, but are large and very comfy. The facilities are great, and we were able to print off documents- most places don't do that free of charge. We wanted to add an additional night to our stay, and this was easily done for us. It was in a great location, close to a Supbeat and the beautiful back Bay Area.

Great location

Posted 23-Feb-2015
The hotel has a great location, it's in the middle of a lot bars and restaurants. It was a little hard to find the hotel because Google maps thought it was on the other side of the block, the entrance and sign of hotel is not so clear. The room was very comfortable, appreciated the free breakfast

Dirty Awful Bathroom

Posted 17-Feb-2015
Pros: The receptionist wad polite - that's about it
Cons: Clean and refurbish the whole place!
no much words to describe this place - it could be such a cute hotel instead it is old and not care is given to the place

Outdated- not usually picky

Posted 15-Feb-2015
Firstly, no parking. We paid $28 for overnight parking. The bathroom was disgusting: mold all on the ceiling tile. The tub's porcelain was peeling and the drain wasn't working properly. I am all about finding economical hotels to minimize travel costs, but do yourself a favor and find a nicer place.

Value for money

Posted 11-Feb-2015
Pros: Value for money, easy access to the area amenities,
Despite arriving in the middle of a historic snow storm, the staff were warm and welcoming, efficient check-in process and good clear information/directions. The seasoned business traveler will probably want more modern facility, but remember this is a long established hotel not a shiny box

Nice hotel, close to transit

Posted 6-Feb-2015
Pros: The thermostat, the continental breakfast, the closet/iron/ironing board, the bed size, the coffee/tea selection, the toiletries (soaps and lotions).
Cons: The geometry of the bathroom is a little tight, not much room around the toilet. Small price to pay.
Location: The T line is a block and a half away, as is the Boston public library. It's maybe a ten minute walk from the Boston Common park.
I had a conference at the Westin Copley but didn't want to spend a fortune for the room, so I went with the Boston Common because it was a block away. I was satisfied with my choice and have no complaints. The entrance is on kind of a side street and not the main road that borders most of the building's footprint. Great breakfast (coffee, tea, milk, juice, and maybe eight kinds of bread/muffin choices). Can't comment on the price because I got it through Expedia, but I thought it was easily worth the stay and would definitely do everything the same if I had to do it again.
