5 friends and I stayed at 113 Beacon St, Apt 6front. First off, it was in a great section of Boston. Mostly walking distance to all locations. About 10-15 minute walk to Fanuiel Hall, little longer to the Fenway area. All very nice brownstones on the street with free parking after 6pm Friday. (big plus)
For the location as well as the layout, it definitely beat staying in any hotel. All rooms were nicely appointed with furniture and the bedrooms were above average with hard-wood floors. Overall a good experience.
One big negative...the A/C in the unit is almost non-existant. One night it was ok but as the night progressed, the hotter then entire place got. On Saturday it was well over 75-80 degrees in the apt with both the main central air as well as a floor unit a/c unit. The floor a/c did nothing to cool the main floor, and this with the temperature not getting past 70 degrees during the day. Can't image what the summer months must feel like.
