Overall a very good experience, marred somewhat by a sub-par room location next to the front door and the major power outage during the first weekend of June. On the plus side, we were happy to find such a nice place at a reasonable rate during college graduation/reunion weekend. The location is excellent, convenient to the T and buses, restaurants and shops. With the keyless entry and fairly small size, the Inn has a nice private feel to it. Our room was quite large and very nicely appointed and well laid out. The toiletries, which normally I don't care about, were really good quality: I got several compliments on my hair at my reunion dinner, and I have to give some credit to the Rusk shampoo. I also liked the high quality coffee at the morning breakfast. Sadly, we were here when a major power outage struck at about 3am on Sunday. One of us slept through it, but the other was wakened by an alarm going off somewhere. Ryan B. makes good points about the associated safety issues. I agree that the outage wasn't their fault, but apparently this is the second time in six months (and the last time lasted several days), and they weren't prepared to handle it. The woman on duty was pleasant but unapologetic and rather cavalier; not the attitude you're hoping for. I missed getting breakfast and a shower that morning, but fortunately it wasn't a big deal for us. Despite this mis-step, we would stay here again.
