My wife and I had an opportunity to stay in Boston on business. We picked the Envision hotel in part because it was midway between our respective meetings, and partly because it seemed to have decent reviews. We were not disappointed in the hotel itself. The rooms were clean, and well stocked. The decor was modern and elegant - nicely appointed. Water and Wifi were both free, and there were lots of outlets for the business minded traveler. We arrived early and when we were first checked in, the room offered was right next to the front desk. Our objections were promptly addressed, and we were moved to a nicer room on the third floor. It was the accessibility room, so the size of the bathroom was disproportional in relation to the room itself, out of necessity. Being a small, boutique hotel in a mostly residential neighborhood, it was quiet, and we slept soundly.
The hotel was a former rest home. The most obvious sign was the complete lack of restaurants or any other services within easy walking distance. This is compounded by the fact that the neighborhood is frankly a bit sketchy (Back of the Hill). So if you are without a car, as most New Yorkers are, you are out of luck for a quick bite. On the other hand, public transportation (the Green Line) is nearby, so if you have the time you can make your way around. If you do have a car, they have a convenient, safe valet parking garage underneath the hotel. We were very impressed with the friendly, accommodating staff.
