We spent 5 nights at the Ames Boston Hotel and couldn't have asked for a better location to stay for a visit to Boston.
The room itself is nice, clean, modern and a good size. We had a king-sized bed that my wife found to be a little too hard but was fine for me. Although we were on the 9th floor, we could still hear the subway going by. It wasn't loud enough to wake us up. I wore earplugs and I couldn't hear it. My wife didn't use earplugs and she wasn't bothered by the subway at all.
We only ate breakfast at the hotel on one morning, as we thought $15 was a little too pricey. The breakfast included cereal, yogurt, pastries, breads and coffee. If you prefer to eat out, there are several places nearby to have a quick breakfast. On most days, we went to the Au Bon Pain a block away.
By far the best feature of the Ames Boston is the location. The Blue Subway Line provides a quick and easy ride from Logan Airport and stops at The State Subway Station right across the street from the hotel. Faneuil Hall is just around the corner. The Freedom Trail runs right past the hotel with Old State House right across the street. And straight out the front door is Washington Street, which features several blocks of stores, including Macy's. There is a great variety of restaurant choices very close by. And Boston Common and the North End are both an easy 15-20 minute walk from the hotel.
We would definitely consider staying at the Ames Boston Hotel again if we returned to Boston. It is a very nice hotel in the ideal location to enjoy all that Boston has to offer.
