We chose this hotel mainly for its proximity to the Museum of Fine Arts and other cultural institutions. In spite of final touches being put in the lobby after a renovation, our stay wasn't negatively impacted by it; the friendly and helpful front desk staff more than made up for any minor inconvenience, such as lack of chairs and tables in the lobby. The room was clean, the linen crisp, the WiFi strong, and the fridge and microwave new. Being able to walk up Crescent Street to the Museum within minutes was a bonus.
Breakfast, included in a very reasonable nightly (senior) rate of $90-100 plus tax, was served in a large, albeit bare room. The selection of breakfast items was the usual Quality/Comfort Hotel fare, but replenished as needed by (presumably) a hotel employee. I say presumably because, after placing the food on the buffet, she sat on a bar stool, half-asleep/half-watching TV, seeming totally detached from it all. Pity; it gave a very unprofessional impression.
Because of the hotel's location on a very busy street packed with restaurants and nightclubs, it can be quite noisy into the wee hours. Luckily, the rooms are located at the back of the hotel, so we weren't kept awake by the noise. The rooms have balconies, however, because of freezing rain, we didn't venture out, as it seemed very insecure. Besides, we are both afraid of heights, so an open balcony on the 11th floor after a night of freezing rain wasn't a good place to relax. The hotel doesn't have parking, but there is a parking lot right next to the hotel that charges ~$20 for the night.
Admittedly, this hotel would perhaps be more suitable for the younger traveller interested in the night scene of this fun-loving city; however, we have decided to stay again and have already booked two nights within the next month.
