After reading the reviews had to note a few things. Stayed last winter for a Celtics game, fantastic location to that and all else Boston has to offer. Felt safe letting my teen kids head out and shop at Faneuil hall. Brought our dog, great customer service, had a bed for her and water and food dish ready in our room. Great valet service, AND they give you a great discount if you have a Hybrid car, which we did :) Staying again this week for business, and looking forward to using the gym down the street.

What a great location and a fantastic hotel. We arrived on Monday morning around 0900 and were able to check into a room. The front desk staff were friendly and extremely helpful. The holtel is walking distance to pretty much most of the attractions and we only used the train 2ce (North Station is about 2 blocks away). We will definitely stay here again and I have already recommended it to our friends and family.
Rooms sort of small, but didn't spend much time in it. Clean, well appointed

I am usually really happy with all Kimpton Hotels and this one was no exception. The staff is really great, friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is great, especially if you are going to TD Garden!! The rooms are a tad small but very cozy!

Our first time at a Kimpton property provided mixed reviews. As they advertise, the hotel is within easy walking distance of all the major attractions and the "T"...which was our main objective. The staff was indeed very friendly and helpful. The downside was the size of the rooms...one of the smallest hotel rooms we have ever stayed in. So, if you are like us, and use the room basically to sleep and wash up, it is a fine hotel. If you plan to spend any amount of leisure time in the room, you should probably look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street--the noise from the Boston Garden, around the corner, can preven...

Stayed here in early August. Staff was very helpful and friendly, service was excellent, rooms were small, but comfy and very clean. Great location for all we wanted to do... Superb Italian in the North End is an easy walk; as are many historical landmarks. Easy access to transportation for other parts of the city. Very Enjoyable!

Great location near the Garden and north end. Staff very helpful. Only drawback is the restaurant/bar is very small. We would definitely stay here when we come back to boston to visit our son. We enjoyed being so close to the north end and all the great restaurants there.,

Room Tip: Front rooms can be noisy when there are events at the Garden.t

Very clean and modern property, newly updated in unique Kimpton style. Cheerful and helpful staff. A "cobblestone's throw" from many Boston highlights including TD Garden is quite true. Great restaurants in the North End are easy walking distance. Boston airport is a short 10-15 minute cab ride.

Rooms are smaller European style. Sign up for the free Kimpton rewards membership and you get free $10 from mini bar and Wifi during each stay.

Pets are welcome. They have food/water at the entrance as well as signage for the pets that are visiting.

We catered breakfast, two lunches and dinner and everything was delicious.

Room Tip: There are a corner rooms a bit larger but near the elevator so for light sleepers there is extra noi...
