Reviewed 31 July 2014

This hotel is in a really nice location and it's easy to walk many places in Boston from here, whether you want to go shopping or sightsee. It's a smaller, boutique style hotel and though the rooms aren't very large, they have everything you need and are comfortable. The front desk staff are friendly, and it's reasonably priced. I would stay here again.

This is hotel is in the perfect location, right on Boylston street in the middle of all the best sites. The Marathon finish line is on the same block, the Boston Public Library is across the street and you can see the blimp from Fenway floating overhead on any given night. The rooms are nice, a bit small, but comfortable. They have a cute bar in the lobby, the drink menu looked excellent. The have a small continental breakfast to get you started in the morning. Its a great spot for business travelers and visitors, if you're looking for a romantic getaway, its probably not the spot for you.

We moved to this hotel after leaving the Seaport Hotel, where my husband was staying at for business. This boutique hotel is in a perfect location on Boylston, across from the Boston Public Library, near Trinity Church, the green line on the T, Logan Airport shuttle, behind Newbury for shopping, and a million restaurants. You can't go wrong!

They offer a continental breakfast for free, bagels, apples, coffee and OJ, but it's enough to get you started. The rooms are small, but for a couple, it was just perfect. Free wi-fi, very helpful and very nice front desk staff, the bar/restaurant in the hotel was great, not any more pricey than any other in the area.

If you stay "in the city" in a non-high rise hotel, expect street noise, and a lot of it. We were on the ground floor, alley side, and the noise from trash pickup and car movement is pronounced. However, staying up just a couple of floors may not have been any better. We opted for the larger room on the ground floor.

There is a fridge in the room, as well as a great sightseeing book for Boston to use. Couch was a little worn, but it didn't bother me.

We would recommend this hotel and would absolutely return if we visited Boston again.

Room Tip: Front of the hotel would avoid alley noise, staying higher up may mitigate street noise, but likely...

I've walked by this hotel several times, but never stayed until this time. What a treat! The hotel is really nice and clean. The hotel staff was welcoming, courteous, and professional.

This property is located across the street from the public library. Great location in the heart of shopping.

The bathroom is wonderful - there's speakers in there too.

The lounge is great for hanging out and meeting friends. The continental breakfast is wonderful, just perfect for a quick bite.

In a good location, friendly staff, and nice rooms. Rooms were very clean comfortable. Perfect for travelers seeking some creature comforts without going overboard. Would definitely recommend to others looking to stay in Boston. Stayed for a couple of days and had no major dramas at all.
