We chose to stay here because their weekend rate was far better than any other decent hotel in the Boston, Brookline, Cambridge and Newton areas during our stay August 26, 2011 to August 30, 2011. We used to live in Newton which is the suburb where this hotel is and I use to work in Aubundale the part of the city where the hotel is actually situated. I knew the neighborhood and we had a car so getting around was not going to be difficult for us. The hotel has a shuttle and it is an easy ride to the Green Line D train stop at Riverside.
Our 5th floor room was just okay interms of amenities but very clean. We could hear people very clearly when they spoke in the hallways and the next room. However it was not noisy and we slept soundly. You have to pay extra to get a refrigerator in your room.
Room service was easy to order and arrived on time as promised. The food was good not particularly spectacular. The gym is very well equiped and the lobby was nice and clean. The concierge staff were very helpful and even gave us an additional room for a hurricane reduced rate when we needed one due to Tropical Storm Irene's disruption of plans. To us that is good customer service. Another good customer service point they scored is cancelling the charge for our one day internet service due to the connection working for only 2 hours during our 24 hour subscription period. The paid overnight parking fee of $9:00 is just a way to make more money off a captured audience. Due to lack of alternative parking, one has to pay and park. Although for us, it was good to know ahead of time and plan for it accordingly.
There is not much in the immediate area in terms of restaurants or entertainment. There is a Shaws/Star market supermarket about 10minutes walking distance on the main avenue and there is a side walk from across the street all the way to that plaza. Also there is a Bagel place at this plaza and they have a great breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. Another option can get off the D line train at Newton Center, which is right at the heart of Newton and very vibrant with more restaurants and shops than Auburndale has to offer. If you have a car then the possibilities are endless. There is shopping and loads of restaurants at Framingham and Natick just take exit 13 on Interstate90/Masspike west about 6 minutes from the hotel. You can get to Downtown Boston on the D line train as well.
We enjoyed going back to Massachusett and if this hotel offers the best in price and comfort when we visit, we will stay there again.
