Ames Boston Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton
Ranked #41 of 86 Hotels in Boston
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 April 2013

I loved the Ames! For starters, it's perfectly located near the hustle and bustle Qunicy Market and the financial area. When walk in the door you are greeted by a sense of calm and quiet sophistication. The staff was young, enthusiastic and professional. We had an upgraded corner room done in contemporary dark tones and white. Very clean. The bathroom is spotless and done in a great modern design with rain shower. Bed was excellent.

Breakfast was included in our rate and was an excellent European style continental with fresh fruits, juices, cereals, etc.

There is a work out room that is somewhat small but better equipped than most hotel versions.

When we were there most guests seemed to be in their mid-30's and young professionals with a few European tourists.

Room Tip: There is a public parking garage right across the street.

Ames is in the perfect location for access to the sights and amenities in Boston. Friendly and helpful staff. Great rooms.
Free wifi. Buffet breakfast is simple but adequate and allows you to take food and drinks away if you are on your way out.

The hotel is perfectly located for tourists in Boston. It is a stones throw from Quincy Market and the other downtown attractions. There are several T stops located nearby making access to public transport incredibly easy.

The hotel itself was excellent. We stayed in a corner room with a fabulous view over the old statehouse. The room was spacious and felt very modern and clean. The bed was incredibly comfortable.

Breakfast was good and nicely arranged. The only bugbear for us was the lack of tea and coffee and no complimentary water in the room. The bottle of water on the bedside was $8 and a tea from room service was $5. However with a cvs and Starbucks just down th street this was no real issue.

We would and will absolutely stay here again.

I've stayed at the NYC Hudson and LA Mondrian. The Ames is something else, it's relaxed and quietly confident. Because it can be. Maybe because it's in Boston, it's infinitely more relaxed and comfortable than other Morgans I've stayed at. Staff are professional but informal and friendly. Rooms (except floor 15) are incredible. Bar restaurant is very pleasant and there is an excellent guest lounge on the second floor where they serve a nice buffet breakfast and doubles up as an excellent daytime office if you have work to do.

We booked this on Priceline and were delighted that it was located in the heart of things, within a 5-minute walk of Fanueil Hall, the North End, and across the street from the Old State House. The subway station is around the corner; this simplified our transit to the airport as well as other parts of the city. Unfortunately that subway line also runs underground alongside the hotel and presented some rumble during operating hours. That was the only drawback. The room was of modern decor and tastefully done, a real treat and a pleasant departure from the usual hotel furnishings.

Room Tip: Try for one of the upper floors. We were on #6 out of 15.

Stayed here spur-of-the-moment with a friend for a girl's night out in the city. We booked on Priceline on a Thursday and got a room with a King bed for $113 -- when we asked if we could upgrade to a room with two doubles, they were very accommodating and let us do so for $30 extra. It's located in the heart of the Financial District in Boston, very central to Faneuil Hall, Downtown Crossing, and the Waterfront, so we could virtually walk to most of our evening activities (though we didn't have any trouble hailing cabs, either.

The whole hotel has a very hip, modern vibe to it -- our room was very stylish and sleek and well appointed with modern furnishings, a huge bathroom and glassed-in shower with dual rainfall showerheads and handheld (if you wanted), large sink area, plenty of towels, comfortable beds that are decked out with big fluffy duvets ... definitely an upscale business traveler's hotel with all the amenities that go with that. My husband, who works in the high-rise across the street, said celebrities stay there all the time. I can see why.

The next morning, a Friday, we had a great complimentary breakfast served in a large restaurant-style dining area on the second floor. Cereal, granola, breads, pastry, fruit, yogurts ... a big selection for a continental breakfast. I was definitely impressed since it seems so many hotels now don't even bother with anything more than coffee for free nowadays.

I would definitely stay here again.
