Needless to say this hotel has some pluses (location, newly renovated lobby and bar/restaurant, kind staff...) but I must point out several things that made me feel not as comfortable as expected...
Super noisy rooms!! You can hear everything happening outside your door: Air conditioning, people talking, doors closing. You better take with you earplugs if you want to sleep...also the lights from the corridor under my room's door so...you better bring a mask if you have a problem with it.
Also I experienced wifi problems the first 2 days and had to solve the situation by myself with the IT staff by phone (¿?)...
I had neither minibar nor even a fridge in the room :(
It also was surprising the lack of security. Although there were a couple of people from the staff in the main entrance, you can go into the hotel and take the elevators without any problem. No control at all!
By the way, fitness room is like a matchbox.

- It's not often that a hotel embodies all that a city stands for, but the Loews Boston is just that place. Housed in the stately limestone building that was once home to the Boston Police Headquarters, our recently renovated boutique property is-like the city of Boston itself-a unique and unforgettable blend of historic charm, urbane sophistication and authentic New England hospitality. Our exclusive Back Bay location, which is ideally situated between three of Boston's hottest neighborhoods-the South End, the Theater District and the Back Bay-puts you in the heart of all that Boston has to offer, with everything you want to see or experience, including the shopping on Newbury Street, just moments away. If you are in town for an event at one of Boston's many colleges and universities, we offer effortless access to the campuses of Boston University, Boston College, Harvard, Northeastern, Emerson and Tufts Medical School, to name just a few. Our 225 spacious guestrooms, two luxury suites and an expansive Presidential Suite have been freshly renovated and bring you the ultimate in modern convenience and comfort. And our recently updated 1,024-square-foot Harrison Room-with its vaulted, 20-foot cathedral ceilings and crystal chandelier-is an unparalleled event space and the perfect location for your next intimate gathering. ... more less
