    Although its doesn't have the bells and whistles of a fancy property-the location is fantastic. The front desk staff was always friendly and nice. The rooms are a bit dates-but we only used the room to sleep and shower.

    The room has a twin-sized bed and roughly the size of a parking place (about 150 sq ft). Fit only for one-person and paid Two Hundred Fifty Dollars a night. Won't do it again. Location is good and that's about it.

    Walk out the Dartmouth St exit of Back Bay station and turn right. Half a block down is Stuart St. Turn right one block and the hotel is right on the corner of Stuart and Trinity place.
