    Excellent service

    Staff top notch, food wonderful and lovely hotel. We had a noisy bathroom door for the first 2 nights and they replaced the hinges and gave us a box of chocolates with a hand written note apology. It was a very classy gesture. My husband didn’t like the sound of the constant trains (we were on second floor), but it was quiter then his snoring!

    Value Boutique in Strong Location

    Comfy little boutique style hotel in prime locatoion for doing both boston and cambridge and beyond. Small rooms but elegant. Good bathrooms with tub. Lobby very cosy. Short staffed right now like all hotels and restos but they sure work hard! Recommended.

    Very artistic hotel.

    This is an amazing hotel. It was a old fire house that has been extended and turned into a hotel. It is filled with fire house memorabilia like old coffee mugs, dept patches, drawings of old fire dept families and the like. Each room is very stylish, attractive and comfortable.
