We had never been to Boston before and were dithering over whether to stay at a B&B or a hotel. Well I'm glad we decided to stay here. It has the privacy of your own apartment and close to everything you need, but distanced from the city bustle if you so choose. Immaculately styled and comfortable and clean.
Some people have mentioned the breakfast. Well it doesn't have the various sweet cooked combinations that we Europeans find so odd in the US, but I am a big man, and the breakfast selection was just fine for a 300 pound Englishman.
Oh and the stairs. I think too much is made of this. I'm 65 and not the fittest and had no problems at all. As I said. Just like being at home.
