Even though my boyfriend and I live in the greater Boston area, we wanted to celebrate his birthday in style in the city. I always try to choose boutique hotels as they have greater personality than the average hotel, and the Inn delivered. The location can't be beaten, nestled on a quiet street in Back Bay and a short walk to all of the South End restaurants. The room was beautiful and stylish, obviously designed by someone with a good eye for quality and character, satisfying my boyfriend's modern taste and my desire for something slightly eclectic and funky.
The only flaws I found were that the fridge in our suite's kitchen hummed quite loudly all night, and the bed seemed to have been frequented more often by single guests, so that there was a noticeable dip in the middle that made each of us feel we were on a slant (somewhat trivial, I realize). We didn't partake in the breakfast offered in the lounge because there wasn't much on hand aside from coffee and bagels, but we had a delicious breakfast a short distance away on Newbury Street.
Overall, it would be silly to pass on an opportunity to stay in this place. Given the cost of other hotels in the Back Bay area, and the personal feel the Inn offers, adults visiting for business or pleasure would be equally content, I believe.
