We were visitng Boston for the day, but could not find a hotel for a decent price due to Parents' Weekend at several schools & the Head of the Charles Regatta. Even though this hotel is about 4 1/2 miles off of Route 84, it was worth the drive. The room was large and the king size bed was comfortable. The bathroom was very clean. Hallways were wide and well lit. The hotel is a step above the standard chain hotel - one nice feature is that it has maintained a beautiful marble fireplace & and some of the original ironwork from the American Optical plant. Since it is a conference center, the business center has multiple computers, and the downstairs lobby is hugh, with many seating areas. There are snacks available in the lobby 24/7. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The Fitness Center was staffed (it seemed to be a regular health club), with good equipment and a large pool. There is free wi-fi. The television sets have not been updated to the flat screen variety, but that is a minor negative. The grounds are quite nice, with lots of parking. There was no road noise - after all, it's in the country - and only 8 miles from a pick-your-own farm.
