Just got back from a weeks vacation in Boston and really enjoyed the whole trip.
A big part of the experience was the hotel which we found to be in just the right location as a few minutes walk you could be right in the middle of the city. Read a few reviews of the hotel and had a few worries but to be honest it was perfect and honestly could not have been better.
When you arrive you do have a funny short lift ride to take to the main lobby from which you can get to the main lifts to the rooms, reception, bar and restaurant. I actually felt this worked very well as it felt very secure and safe as people would not just be walking in off the street.
All the staff were very polite and extremely helpful and coming from the UK we are just never sure if people are being like this because they want too or looking to earn a tip. We both said a number of times that we felt the staff were being very genuine which made it much more relaxing, especially as this was a vacation and not a business trip.
Breakfast was fantastic as you could order off a menu or go up to the buffet...as many times as you like with plenty of Juice and coffee brought to your table. The choice was just right between fruit, cereal, bread and hot food plus a pancake and egg station. We filled up at breakfast and found we pretty much went through to dinner without needing anything else as it was so filling.
The Gym was good, pretty busy very early morning so if we left it until about 8:00ish then pretty much had access to all the equipment we needed without having to wait. We were going to use the pool and steam room but just ran out of time as each day was spent walking to all the sites we wanted to visit.
The bar area was nice as well with plenty of cocktails for the wife and different beers on tap for me. They also have a good selection of bar food which we did on the last evening as had to be up very early for the flight home and didn't want to over do it.
The hotels location was perfect for us as we could walk to any part of Boston with ease and as someone else said you only really need to use other transport if the weather is bad or you don't want to walk that far but we found we could get around really easily.
Would recommend a trip down to Quincy market, great place to just walk around, have a drink and some food as almost every type of food you can imagine is for sale in the food court. We got home and just wanted to go back and get a take out....bit far to go from London.
We would highly recommend the hotel as we could not fault it at all and all the staff really helped to make it an enjoyable trip.
