Spent one night here prior to a meeting, in a studio suite. In short, I loved the place and in this hotel think I have found my new go-to hotel for visits to Boston. The place is clean, visually interesting (it is a restored old mill), and in a great location. The kitchen was fully appointed, furniture was comfortable, and water pressure good. The room also had two brand new High Def TVs, which made it easy to watch from either the living area or bedroom. Wifi was free and reasonably fast, even without paying the $5.95 to upgrade to faster service.
A few things that were not perfect, and which knock my review down from five stars to 4 (4.5, if TA would allow it): Breakfast, while free, was mediocre even by Residence Inn standards, with overly limited meat and fruit choices. Prices in their marketplace for snack items are far too high. It took 15 minutes to get a taxi during the morning rush, because the main entrance of the hotel is on a side street and cabbies seem not to know of it yet. It is not far from Logan, and during the morning jets were taking off directly overhead. Sound proofing was good, but not perfect, and so I noticed the jet noise (not a problem for me, but a warning for the sound sensitive). None of these things will keep me from staying there again, but for hyper-picky travelers they might be a put-off.
