  • 6.0.Good

    I chose this hotel for our boston stay as I have had many friends stay here and they stated it was exceptional. The view was amazing from our room and the floor was quiet. When we first arrived at the property it was prom night and all of the self parking was taken (not an issue as valet wasnt that much more expensive) but the guys who were running the valet were honestly rude and pushy to get all of our stuff out. They didnt ask if we needed help, handed us our ticket and I had to ask where we go if we need to get more things from our car. Over our two night stay EVERY time I went to the valets to get our keys they acted as though we were interrupting them and were not polite. Which was shocking because again i had heard so many great reviews. Lastly, we were charged for a bottle of water we did not use. We purposely brought bottles of water from our car because we drink distilled. My husband brought this up to the woman at the front desk during check out and she made a comment about having to ask the staff and an "investigation" etc. Its $3.00 so we left it alone but i guess in the future we will have to take pictures every time we leave the room..

    Received an "upgrade" upon checkin which later occured to me that it was actually a downgrade having paid extra for 2 queens with a riverside view I was moved to a king on the 3rd floor with a partial riverview as it is obstructed by the building itself.

    I liked the location, however I did not sleep well for 3 nights as the staff service elevator was vibrating the walls all through the night and morning.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    The room was nice, clean and a good size. Price was great for Boston and the area around the hotel was very nice. Parking is very expensive at 42$ per day BUT on weekends and holidays you can park for free on the street directly behind the hotel, along the water. Even when we asked the staff they said we can only park at the garage or the mall parking but that the mall parking closes at 1 AM. This was a lie. Mall parking is 24 hours and is 30$. Street parking was free and because it was a holiday weekend we did not have to move the car.
