“Just right”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

I had a very pleasant stay with my wife and two kids at this hotel. It was a cute boutique hotel as I imagined. Very simple but everything was just right: the price, the service, the room size... Actually, we wanted a king bed so that all of us could sleep in one bed, but Travelocity somehow changed our request to a standard double. But the room size was big enough that they could give us a rollaway bed for free. Also, I realized that I forgot my favorite T-shirt at the hotel, and the staff kindly mailed it to us. Just a T-shirt...that tells you a lot, no? Another thing was that the front staff recommended this breakfast place in Brookline village (in walking distance) called Martin's Coffee Shop, which was fantastic! The hotel staff was kind enough to arrange a cab even after our check-out. Thank you!!

Room Tip: 401, the top corner room was pretty nice (standard double).

Greetings Daiyu S.,
Thank you for your wonderful review! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and breakfast at Martin’s. We understand that travelling can be somewhat hectic, let alone with two children as well, so things get left behind therefore we are more than happy to return any forgotten items… We’re happy we could get your favorite Tshirt back to you! :)
We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Boston!

We visited Boston for a week for my birthday. After much searching we decided, based on reviews, to stay here. We were not disappointed. We stayed in the two room suite. It was the perfect size for the four of us.
The location may be a bit off the beaten path for some, but we just hopped the T which has a stop right near the hotel.
The staff was wonderful, especially Lisa Marie. Everyone was polite and friendly. They were always open to providing suggestions on where to visit or eat and giving directions.
We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. This was less expensive than any chain hotel in Boston and the service was fantastic. I would highly recommend to anyone!

My wife and I have been on a month long motorcycle adventure. We have no set itinerary and check Trip Advisor to find hotels in the various stops we make along the way. We checked out all the hotels in the Boston area before settling on Envision. Fortunately for us, they had a room available. We cannot say enough good things about this hotel!

We read reviews of a "questionable" neighborhood to go for a walk. We experienced no reason to worry while on our walk to a local restaurant, the Mission. Excellent food and service.

The staff are knowlegable in giving directions and in no time, we were on the "T" heading downtown to take in some sights.

Our room was immaculate and tastefully decorated. We were on the third floor and had a very quiet and comfortable rest.

Every staff member we encountered offered us a warm smile and made us feel welcome.

Would I recommend this hotel? In an instant! It is ranked #1 in our book.

I only have one complaint! The hotel was booked up solid for the rest of the week and we could only stay one night! We will be back and next time we will book our reservation well in advance!

Many thanks to Lisa and her staff for makimg our stay enjoyable and restful.

When we got to the hotel it was around 9am and we were able to check in to our room and get ready to get some maps of the area and to see The Red Sox game. After we got back they looked up stuff for The Boston Pops Fireworks show that night. I also liked the parking for only $18 for the whole day that was great

Greetings vtweety:
Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay. It’s great that we were able to accommodate your early check in, this does not always happen and is not guaranteed however if it is possible we are more than happy to do it! It’s great you were able to take in two great events while in town. We hope you enjoyed both and look forward to seeing you on your next journey to Boston!

Other reviewers have given all the pros. We didn't experience any cons. I usually stay in town when in Boston, but this was about half the price and just as nice. It's going to be my new "go to" place when I'm in town. It's a do-able walk to the MFA and Gardiner Museums, though not scenic, and an easy trolley ride either to the museums or a few stops further to the center of town.

Room Tip: room at end of hall has great view of reservoir and park. some traffic noise but not bothersome.

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is modern and clean with nice rooms. Staff is helpful. Located 10-15 minutes with metro outside downtown Boston. Nice park for morning runs nearby, short walk to the cosy village Brookline.
Cons: Noisy aircondition!! and some noise from other rooms and the elevator next to our room.
