My husband and I stayed here during the 2014 Boston Marathon. My husband was running in the Marathon so we wanted a hotel close to the start and finish. It was relatively close to the start line (probably about a 10 minute walk) and about a 20 minute walk from the finish line. The hotel is pretty fancy with a doorman, concierge, bell men, and maid turn-down service. The maid service can be a bit on the intrusive side as you first get the maid who comes in to clean your room, then later, you have a head-housekeeper who comes to your door to make sure your room was cleaned properly, then early evening, the turn-down maid comes in to turn your bed down, leave slippers, and chocolates on your bed. All very nice but not necessary, in our opinion. We finally put the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the doorknob to keep them away.
The bed was very comfortable and the heating/cooling system was excellent and quiet. The shower pressure was superb! The bathroom was nice but I did slip and fall pretty hard on the floor because they laid a bathroom rug in it with no rubber backing to keep it from slipping out from under you. The floor is tile and I went down hard, bruising my elbow. A month later, I still have a huge knot on my arm. The rug is dangerous without a no-slip backing and makes no sense to be there.
Overall, I would recommend the hotel even though it is a bit on the pricey side; but so is everything in Boston.
