Small but convenient

Posted 16-Aug-2014
Pros: Location is great, wifi excellent, staff pleasant, and reasonable price. Air conditioning worked well but I could also open windows a bit which
Cons: Realize it is small and very basic. You can't sneak in an extra guest because there really isn't room
Location: Great back Bay Area block away from mall and ped-way to convention center. About 2 blocks from the Copley T station. Extremely convenient. Felt safe
Fairly basic room but staff was very nice and it was comfortable. Reminded me more of European hotels, everything I needed and the wifi was excellent. Extremely convenient. Near a T line giving access to all of Boston. Coffee maker worked well and room felt clean.

1st time to bean town

Posted 13-Aug-2014
The hotel was very clean, convenient to our proposed activities and reasonably priced for the area. I would recommend to others that are in Boston to see the city who are not as concerned with the hotel amenities as much as being comfort and convenience. I would recommend to others.

Very nice hotel. Excellent location.

Very nice stay, room a little bit small and you hear noises from other rooms but overall it's a great place to stay.

Very good location but not worth the price

Posted 29-Jul-2014
Pros: The location
Cons: The price should be lowered to reflect the actual state of the establishment.
Location: It's right in the heart of Back Bay, near the Common, restaurants, shops and sights.
The hotel, which is in a former YWCA, is marketed as a boutique design hotel but it's really not. While it was fine for our purposes a place to sleep for the night it really isn't worth the price. The bath room was very basic and we found someone else's hair on one of our towels.

Good location in back bay

Posted 26-Jul-2014
Pros: Great location, close to metro
A budget hotel but I had to squeeze sideways along the edge of our double bed to get to my side, hitting my back several times on the plasma TV on the wall. We checked in early and the guy on reception said we could have the best room, so who knows how tiny the other rooms were!

Good room in a great location

Posted 19-Jul-2014
Pros: It's a bit different. And opposite a Bon Pain which is handy for breakfast!
Cons: The air conditioning needs updating
Location: You can easily walk to the park and good shops. There is a subway nearby to take you to the historical district and Fenway Park.
We don't like huge impersonal hotels, and this one has a bit of character and is in a helpful location. The only downside was the extraordinarily noisy air conditioning unit! The room was beautifully clean, though, and the toiletries were nice.

Location, location, location

Posted 18-Jul-2014
Room size was sufficient though not spacious (typical city experience). Bathroom not updated and a bit cramped in terms if finding space for unpacking things. The appeal comes primarily from its central location and decent pricing. No valet parking though there is a nearby ramp which partners with the hotel to offer a bit of discounted pricing.

Nice, comfortable hotel close to a lot.

Posted 14-Jul-2014
Extremely clean hotel. Perfect hotel if you are not spending a lot of time in your room. Block away from resturants, shopping, tour buses, train, etc. Would for sure stay here again!
