“Very comfortable hotel with a couple of buts...”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

First off let me start by saying this hotel was very comfortable. The beds were awesome, the staff was very accommodating, the room was spotless, and the caramels left each day were delicious. It was a bit noisy but I really don’t know what the staff could have done about the morons that thumped and yelled their way down the hall at 5 AM! Also, I don’t think it would hurt the hotel to put out some coffee in the morning to complement the 2 K-cups they left in the room each day. We stayed here because it was within walking distance to Jamaica Plain where our son lives. Be aware that this hotel is not “a few strides” from Fenway Park; it’s a bit more than a mile away. It is however a few steps away from the Green Line T which will get you very close to Fenway Park as well as anywhere in downtown Boston. You can walk about 20 minutes in any direction and be at restaurants, bars and stores. There are awesome restaurants on Centre St in JP. To get there, you can take the 39 bus (just a few steps from the door of the hotel) or just walk up Huntington to Perkins St and take a left past the SPCA. I felt very safe walking through the neighborhood including in the evenings. The hotel is also just across the street from the Emerald Necklace and a lovely walk to Jamaica Pond. If you like to walk, if you want to be in a more diverse neighborhood with a better variety of, although not as many, restaurants, and if you don’t mind using public transport this hotel is definitely for you. If you want to be in downtown Boston, or want to be next door to places to eat, look elsewhere. As for me I would absolutely stay here again.

Dear Auburnwilly,

I am thrilled that you found the hotel comfortable and our staff very accommodating!

We have so many great restaurants in that area and we are delighted that you got to explore that part of town!

We hope to see you again the next time you are in Boston!

Our room was comfortable and clean with all the necessary amenities. There was a tram right into the centre of the city from near the hotel. There are also restaurants, a laundrymat and shops not too far away ( walkable for us).The room was also quiet & the beds comfortable. The staff were friendly & helpful.

The enVision was a good value in Boston. It was a bit of a walk to get to most of the attractions, but you can always take the T or a taxi if you don't want the exercise. The room was quiet and very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was much more reasonable than the other hotels.

Very nice hotel. Booked it around the time of the Boston Marathon and the prices were still very reasonable considering the competition. Close access to the T. Rooms were very clean and the staff was very friendly.

I had to make last minute reservations when my husband had to go to Brigham and Women's Hospital for an emergency. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. I had to keep moving my check in and check out dates because of the shifting medical circumstances and they worked hard to give me a lot of flexibility. The staff was fantastic.

The hotel itself is really nice and unique; feels more like a modern upscale home. My room had a comfortable bed, frig, microwave, and large closet with a bathrobe. There was a good little convenience store and a pretty good small fitness center.

I would stay there again without any hesitation.

Room Tip: I was in a basement room. Higher floors probably have better light.

I and my family had to book a last min hotel in Boston because of a hospital appointment. We really did not know the area and was very worried about getting to the appointment on time. When I called the hotel that night, a very understanding and pleasant staff member picked up the phone. She gave me a great price..{hospital discount}, great directions and assured me that she would arrange for a complimentary cab ride to and from my doctors appt. They went beyond and above from the minute we arrived. The staff greeted us, help us in everyway and supplied us a beautiful, clean room. My every need was meant and with professional and friendly service. I will be staying at Envision again. The prices for Boston area are great and the Service is outstanding. Ty all again. Dee

Room Tip: The Taxi service was the icing on the cake, with not having to worry about my doctor appointments. S...

Really nice little hotel. Excellent staff and next to the Green Line for easy access to the city. Room was bigger than expected with excellent beds. We stayed there for the Boston Marathon and it was an excellent choice. They had a complimentary spread of Gatorade, energy bars, water and more on race day. I really can't say enough about how friendly and accommodating the staff was. Great neighborhood restaurants (always better than the touristy places) are a couple Green Line stops away. The train takes about 20 minutes to get downtown, so that's not bad either.
