I had limited expectations when arriving but have found my stay so far to be very pleasant. I got this booking through Travelocity at a good discount, and had concerns that it would be ill-advised. Actually, very pleasant indeed. A few points:
1. Outstanding location: when the weather is nice, this is a very pleasant, 1 mile walk through Boston Commons to the business district. And the immediate area is full of shops and the like (if you like high end shops and the like).
2. Surprisingly good breakfast: some comments have criticized the breakfast; while there isn't eggs, bacon etc., there is good fruit (fresh blueberries), pastires, juice, cereal, yoghurt and decent coffee.
3. Clean: The shared bathroom was immaculate and my room was fine.
1. This club was apparently once women only, and I must say (as I guy) I feel a little like the fox in the henhouse or however that goes.
2. My room is a single on the 4th floor and it is indeed small and indeed has no TV. Also, the in window AC, while reasonably efficient, is a tad noisy. But certainly a servicable room and the place overall is far preferable to a souless chain.
