We stayed here for three nights in September. We arrived on an early flight from chicago but the front desk were very helpful in letting us have a room well ahead of normal check in time. The room was very spacious with a huge, comfortable bed. We had a nice corner room on the 5th floor with a good view of Boylston street. The Bathroom was spotless with nice Aveda toiletries. I particularly liked the crystal glasses and ice bucket - a nice change from the usual plastic stuff you get in hotels.
The air conditioning was VERY noisy but to be honest you get used to it and sleep right through. We just put it down to one of the quirks of an older hotel.
The Hotel is in an excellent location - The T stop is a close by as is Newbury Street and Copley Square. We walked to Boston Common, downtown and Fanueils Market and it only took around 20 minutes or so. It could probably be done quicker but we were browsing along the way.
We were out a few nights until around 1:00 in the morning and when we came back the hotel was still bustling with party goers in the attaching Irish Pub. It seems to be a popular place with local Boston people but we could not hear any noise at all when we were back in our room. We walked around the hotel areas very late at night and felt safe
One word of caution though - even though I had pre-paid for the room and had no extra charges an amount was billed to my credit card on check in. Hopefully, this will be sorted and refunded shortly but I would advise you to just double check with the front desk when you hand over your card.
We would definately stay again and would recommend the hotel to others.
