As locals, we were excited when we finally got a chance to stay here for a wedding. The hotel is actually in a beautiful historic building in Boston. Luckily we knew exactly where it was or never would've found it! If you're not familiar with the area, definitely use a GPS or get an exact location with landmarks. It's in a great location if you want to be in the financial district, historic area, Fanieul Hall area, and not that far from the waterfront.
Valet/bellman service when we arrived was neither friendly or helpful. The valet/bellman watched me struggle with a few bags and didn't offer to take more than the one he had. He basically dumped me off in the room without offering any information about the room and where things were located. Rooms were clean and beautiful, but very sparse and I thought, a little cold and uninviting. Bathrooms were roomy with nice products. I found it odd and a little off putting that there were no robes in the room...you actually have to call and get them from housekeeping!
Breakfast in the restaurant was superb! The food was outstanding, but the service again, wasn't friendly. Although this hotel was beautiful, the service is not up to the standards of this category of hotel,especially as pricey as it is.
