Attending a conference at the Hynes Convention Center, I was looking for an alternative to the Back Bay hotels. Found a great deal on Booking.com for Commonwealth Court Guest House, which is a converted brownstone. Awesome location just off of Newbury and 2 blocks from the Hynes.
The Good: Very nice room with 12-foot ceilings, architectural details, and a large bay window looking out at Commonwealth Ave parkway. Nice colors, desk and comfy chair. Refrigerator, microwave, two-burner stove and sink.
The Bad: TV was 19" non-HD. Bed was average. Baseboard heating sounded its age.
The Ugly: Bathroom is tiny. Two people could not physically be in there at the same time. Shower was small with a shower head that had one setting: pitchfork.More
