“Good base when visiting Boston”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

We spent 10 nights here in June. We chose the location based on cost (it is one hundred dollars more a night to stay 'downtown' with breakfast not included) Saying that, we still thought it was still a bit expensive for an 'airport hotel'
The hotel staff were very friendly and always helpful, however we visited the 'Alchohol free' Managers Reception a few times, and on two of the nights we found the bar waiter, very curt and rather unfriendly!
Rooms are clean and well equipped, we were on 9th floor overlooking the airport, the room was quiet, apart from the AC system that clunked a bit and at one time died on us, this was repaired very quickly however. We had one noisy neighbor for one night, who insisted on slamming their door every 30 seconds! again we reported this to the front desk, who sent a member of staff to the room, and it was again resolved very quickly.
Breakfast was good and could get a bit busy, The large urn of iced lemon water in the reception was a nice touch, especially after sight seeing in the hot city.
The subway is 5 minutes walk across a well kept park, two stops to down town Aquarium station
We hired a car and found the Avis office about 2 minutes walk from the hotel, very handy for pick up and drop off. The hotel valet parking works well.....but is very expensive.
The shuttle bus to and from the airport saves a lot of time and money, on arrival at the airport just call the hotel and the shuttle is there for you in 5 mins.
We would certainly stay here again

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a down town view across the Charles River otherwise your view is the street or...

My husband & I stayed here for 3 nights at the start of a 2 week touring holiday.
It was a great choice. Landing at Logan Airport - you just follow signs to hotel courtesy buses, after 5 minutes the bus came & 5 minutes later we were checking in!
Rooms have a bedroom & sitting room/kitchenette. We didn't use anything in the kitchen apart from the fridge, which was good. There's also an ice machine on each floor.
Bed was comfy, air-con worked well. Breakfast was fine - self service pastries, fruit, cereal, bacon, eggs, waffles, plus an omelette station. (especially as I thought we were room only!!!)
I had a meal at the hotel when we arrived & it was delicious. The hotel bar feels like a 'local' very friendly.
I don't think there's any particular view from the hotel - but we booked it for convenience & it's great for that. (there's also a small pool - but we didn't have time to try it).
To get into the city centre it takes about 15 mins from walking from the hotel through the lovely park opposite, to the T station (4-5 mins) to getting on the train & arriving. Very easy. We never waited more than a few mins for a train.(we bought a weeks pass - they no longer do 3 day ones- $18)
We were picking a car up from Avis to carry on our holiday - the Avis office is 2 mins walk away! It was all very easy & convenient.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel if you are planning a similar holiday.

My wife and I stayed here one night on our way to Europe. It's located just outside Logan Airport and a 10 minute walk to the T (across a nice park). This is an older hotel without the typical atrium, but offers all the same amenities you expect from Embassy Suites. The staff was great. Complimentary WiFi, water, and a great bar (and burger) made our short stay better. Shuttle service to and from the airport was fast and the drivers friendly. CONs: 1. (and not their fault) The evening manager's reception did not serve free liquor due to Mass state blue laws.; 2. The AC filters in our room looked like they hadn't been changed in quite awhile; 3. For what you pay for a room, the Management should be upgrading the room furniture.

I stayed there for one night. The rooms are huge and fancy and very well equipped. The problem is that it was quite pricy (227$ a night for an airport located hotel) and breakfast wasn't that good.
I wouldn't recommend it in these prices.

I've given this property a "3" rating in comparison to other Embassy Suites properties. Compared to a Super 8, of course, it's a "5," but things aren't as smooth here as in some other Embassy Suites properties.

On the positive side, the location is a good one - some guests do become frustrated by the wait for the airport shuttle, but it should be noted that one can walk to the "T" stop (the Boston subway station) in about 5 minutes by crossing a nearby park. Our suite was equipped as in most Embassy Suites properties, and everything was clean and well ordered (one exception: only decaf coffee had been provided in the suite).

On the negative side, we had no meltdowns, per se, but a lot of things were below the bar for a top-tier hotel:

1) It took us two days of repeated requests to get a safety deposit box at the front desk - apparently they only have a very limited number of boxes, and there is no queue for them, so one must ask at the desk over and over.

2) The breakfast is a basic one by Embassy Suites standards, and there are some weaknesses from an operational perspective. Seating is apparently inadequate for busy mornings, and tables are cleared sporadically during busy times. On weekday mornings, the bacon is cooked to European (not American) standards, and it takes a lot of sleuthing to find any crisp pieces. The line for the omelet station can be a long and slow one during busy times. Items on the buffet that are depleted are not replenished on a consistent basis - on a busy Saturday morning, those who wanted bread products were reduced to making toast or accepting a stale English muffin - the donuts and other pastries ran out and were never refilled during the 40 minutes we watched.

3) The guest laundry (4th floor) has two washer/dryer combo units, but the coin device was jammed on one washer so it was inoperative. I called the desk at 7 PM one evening to report it and was told someone would be sent up right away to help. As of 9 PM, no one had - and I checked at 9 AM the next day to see that the "jammed - out of order" sign I had placed on the washer was still where I left it. I have no evidence that this problem was ever addressed.

4) It is clearly not the Embassy Suites' fault, but guests should be aware that Massachusetts law prohibits the providing of complimentary alcoholic beverages during the daily Manager's Reception. A cash bar is available. I expected that the management would compensate for this by providing upgraded appetizers/snacks, but it appeared that the offerings were of the standard Embassy Suites nature: chips and salsa, crackers and cheese, etc.

I point out these deficiencies not to argue that the property is a disaster - it is not - but that it could use some managerial attention to detail. It's fine for a one-night layover stay as long as one is not expecting a five-star experience. Perhaps our mistake was staying four nights and viewing it as a base for Boston sightseeing.

We recently stayed at this property after a late airport arrival. The location was perfect and the shuttle to and from the terminal was very convenient. Our room was suitable with a comfortable bed and clean bathroom but overall the hotel needs some updating. Carpet and sofa needs replacing. We had a very late dinner in the restaurant/bar near the lobby. The food was good but it was a little pricey and service was really slow. It seemed as though they did not have enough help.

This is my third stay at this hotel. I keep returning because the location is so convenient; nearby rental cars, a t-stop a pleasant 5 minute walk away and the airport is a short free shuttle ride away. Despite that, this is probably my last stay here as the hotel is getting progressively dirtier. I had to request a new room because my air conditioning was having difficulties but also because I was afraid to sit on the couch, it was so stained that it looked like a fraternity "beer couch", but my second room wasn't much better. The carpet in both rooms was filthy, as was the carpeting throughout the upper floors of the hotel. I love ES breakfasts, but here the staff appeared to be overwhelmed by the number at breakfast, as both mornings of my stay there were long lines (at least 10 minutes) for omelettes (which were delicious and worth the wait), the coffee kept running out, and tables weren't being cleared. Just a warning, the "cooked to order" breakfast here is limited to omelettes, and everything else is pre-cooked. On the positive side, the rooms are very quiet, the beds are comfortable, and the staff is polite and tries to help.

Room Tip: The upper floors have beautiful views of boston.
