    Location of this hotel was excellent - close to public transit, restaurants,shops. Valet parking took the guess work out of finding a space in a strange city. The design and amenities of the hotel were wonderful - very tasteful and thoughtful.

    Small room but just the right size for 2 people. The hotel is new and is in excellent condition. Very close to the Red line - quick and easy into the city. Valet parking was a great perk and staff were friendly and welcoming. Would stay again or recommend to friends.

    This is a brand new hotel and it was so clean and very beautifully decorated. It is also in a very convenient location! The only downside was the bed was not the most comfortable and felt small for a queen. Also, the shower is open concept without a door so it’s tricky to shower without water getting all over the bathroom floor.

    Perfect little space in Porter Square

    The perfect location and price of Porter Sq. the location that works for you. We were visiting family about 3 miles down Somerville Ave, making this the perfect, tranquil and uncluttered spot. So glad that we found it on Hotels.com and the reviews were accurate. Immaculate, well appointed, welcoming but VERY tiny room.. which we had read about but for the price and location, this met our needs. But if you are not from a city where space is a premium and you desire a lot of space in the room to walk about and sit, relax... this may not be the room for you. We literally returned at bedtime and left again in the morning each here day. Late Saturday night into Sunday was easy to park on the street in front. Otherwise, 28 dollars to valet park, unlimited in and out, is also a steal for Boston.
