I stayed here on 8-1-2014 in rooms 422 and 424 with my family and relatives. This is a great hotel, easy access to the Orange Line MBTA and a great shuttle service to downtown and surrounding areas. The pool area is often mentioned in reviews here and it is wonderful for traveling with children, thank you to the staff for maintaining such a great area for the kids. The rooms are great, we had adjoining rooms so that everyone could spread out a bit and enjoy family company at the end of the day and the next morning. My one complaint is the air conditioner / heater in room 422, when it comes on in A/C mode it makes a loud bang, when it is running it sounds like you are sleeping next to delivery truck motor with rattles, creeks and vibrations. When it completes its cycle it produces a loud crack and then a long flush of water / coolant. I turned off the unit and tried to go back to sleep, but it got a little warm in the room, so I turned it back on to auto fan mode, this produced a facia rattle coming from the cover panels on the unit. Tough to deal with in a room with small children sleeping on the pull out. I see that the GM usually replies to the reviews, I hope they can get someone up to the room and fix the unit, it really was a great stay in the Hotel except for this one thing. Kudos to the shuttle staff who dropped us right at the Science center and The Aquarium, made the trip much easier with three little ones and elders in tow. We would stay here again in a heartbeat, the proximity to the T and free parking on site make this a very convenient place to stay so you can make your way in and out of Boston hassle free and leave your car right there at the hotel.
