We stayed here for 3 nights over Canadian Thanksgiving, and chose this hotel for its proximity to TD Gardens where we were seeing a hockey game, and because the price was more reasonable than other downtown Boston hotels. The location worked well for us - we walked to many central Boston attractions, and also caught the subway twice, which was about 2 blocks over at TD Garden. I understand what other reviewers are saying about the street / location. It's a little dark and quiet, unless there's a concert or game, when the bars around the area became quite busy.
The hotel doesn't overly cater to children (more so dogs!) although we didn't feel unwelcome with our 7-year old son. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The hotel is basic in its services, which was fine with us, as we were there to sightsee, etc. and not planning to spend a lot of time in the hotel. We were glad for the breakfast buffet in the lobby as we couldn't find any other place to eat right in the area before heading out for the day. Rooms were clean and quiet; beds were comfortable and we slept well. We appreciated the valet staff keeping our bags for us on the day of checkout, as our plane didn't depart until the evening.
