We booked one night as a treat after a Billy Joel concert. The room was immaculate, comfortable, and the linens and pillows are great. The in-room safe, refrigerator, free Wi-Fi and Google tablet were a plus. Beautiful desk/table with many outlets and deep glass shelves in the bathroom provide lots of storage. We had a Fenway Park view room, but don't be fooled - you can only see its signs. Our room was on the fourth floor directly overlooking the air conditioning units, not a pretty sight, and a bit noisy due to the refrigerator's on/off cycles, the HVAC system and a housekeeping closet in the hall nearby. We were close to the elevator, a plus. Thankfully they provide very strong blackout curtains, because Fenway lights remained on after the concert! It was as bright as daylight with them shining, but the curtains did a great job of making our room dark. Had we booked for more than one night I would have requested a slight change in room location. I recommend this hotel, maybe with a few tweaks if you find yourself overlooking the roof. The hotel feels fresh and new. All employees encountered were helpful and friendly. This is close to shopping, the subway, and many of Boston's schools and attractions. It would make a great base for your travels.
