I stayed at this hotel the second week they were open, so they were still ironing out some kinks, but all in all it was a great stay. The hotel is in the Seaport area right across from the financial district and the rest of downtown Boston. So you are really close to a lot of things (the Tea Party museum, kid's museum, all sorts of restaurants on the waterfront, shopping) but it still feels a bit residential as there are several condo buildings nearby.
There is a pretty cool little grocery store right across the street with a great selection of reasonable wine and beer and a hodge podge of organic foods. Very convenient as the rooms are basically like studio apartments. I had a full-size fridge, oven, and dishwasher. There is a separate "living" area with a couch, large TV and large desk, and the bedroom is in the back. Instead of being the standard hotel room, there were some unexpected touches like large timber crossbeams in the ceiling, giving it sort of a cabin feel. No restaurants yet, but I think two are either planned or underway.
The staff was very friendly. Huge bonus - I left my kindle because I was in such a rush and they fedexed it my house, no questions and no charge. Great customer service!!
