My wife and I decided to plan a last minute (about 4 days prior) trip to Boston for New Years Eve. I looked around a little until I found the Ames which was right in the middle of everything pretty much. The price was really not that bad considering how late I booked. I did not go through the hotel's website as it was about 100.00 more expensive than priceline. The room was very nice. It had cathedral ceilings which made up for the size of the room. The furniture was very nice and modern and despite some negative reviews about the bathroom I had read, it was nice and the shower did not make that much of a mess at all. We usually stay in Kimpton Hotels but I think we will definately switch to the Ames when in Boston. Warning, not a hotel for families or people that are light sleepers. My wife and I enjoy the sounds of the city but if you are sensitive to it then this will be a problem for you. Overall very enjoyable stay.
