First of all, let me say that my review rating is higher because what I got for the rate I paid. It was under $320 for 2 nights including tax. If I would've paid more, maybe I would've given a less overall rating.
My trip is based on 2 people – on a 3-day weekend getaway.
Location: Let me say that this hotel is across the street from Faneuil Hall and Quincy markets. Which is a plus, since you can eat breakfast/lunch/dinner/snacks, and even desserts for low prices. You are 3 blocks from little italy - which has great cafes and gelatos. You are across the street from the Aquarium, Legal Seafoods Restaurant, 7-eleven and steps away from the blue line (subway station) and the Trolley stops.
Hotel: Our flight arrived 10am and we were surprised that upon arrival at the hotel (before 11am) we were given a room. This is a plus. We got a king bed in a corner room - 3rd floor. It was HUGE vs other hotels. We had a window street view, which was ok for us to help check the weather. Very clean spacious room and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was good, clean and enough towels for us, no vanity outside though. I had to ask for a shower cap at the front desk, because it was not in given in the room. The corner room given was far away from the amenities, not noisy for us at all. It was quiet and perfect for naps.
The hotel has a big exercise room that hubby used every day. Granted, the indoor pool/whirpool are pretty small and if there are kids around, it makes it impossible to enjoy it. But it is a plus if you have family that would like to enjoy and kill and afternoon there.
The lobby offers computers to check in your flight and print boarding passes. We did some research and used to make reservations for our 2 dinners. There is an starbucks inside the lobby of the hotel.
I would definitely stay here again. It was a perfect stay for 2 on a chilly weekend.
I did not use the valet/parking (which is over $45 per day), the restaurant/bar, concierge services and lounge, or any room service.
