The suite was clean and spacious. Breakfast is not included, but they have a mini-convenience store to buy food in the lobby if you don't want to take the time to go to the restaurant.. Best feature was a large bank of elevators--never any waiting, even when the hotel was full. Staff was unerringly polite and helpful.
Price was high, but it was reunion week,leading up to graduation and they do take advantage of that.
Downside: Boston traffic is so bad for much of the day that even getting across the river to Cambridge can be time-consuming. The hotel shuttle doesn't run either to Cambridge or downtown Boston frequently enough (for Cambridge, there is a gap of about 3-4 hrs in between; for Boston, no AM service.. There is no public transportation, although taxis always are waiting at the hotel. A second shuttle, to expand the schedule. would be very helpful. If the weather is nice, a half-hour walk to Harvard Square is OK, but the weather is often not nice.
