“An eclectic hotel in a great location”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Think you know what to expect in a Residence Inn? Not if you haven't stayed at this one! A recycled 1901 building redone as a contemporary resort with an "outdoor courtyard" covered by a huge skylight, viewed from the glass elevators. All of the usual amenities are here, as well as a lobby bar. For us, it was about a five minute walk to the Convention Center, as well as walking distance to the No Name restaurant and the Barking Crab. Another neighborhood restaurant with rave reviews was Tavern Road. Great location!

Room Tip: Higher floors have waterfront views.

Stayed May 2014 Mother's weekend. Check in easy with Mike, New renovated bld with everything you need, refrigerator, microwave, dish washer, wine glasses, and dish wear, pots and pans. Stand up shower with dual heads, fun, huge bed, big windows. Two TVs, Market in bld and across the street with organic options. Best breakfast, you do not leave hungry, Kelly was so sweet and had great customer service, shared with us directions to the Sowa open market and Sam Adams Brewery. All were accommodating to get taxi or a driver when needed Most definitely will go back.

Very chic lobby and rooms; renovated historic building in Seaport District.... easy walking to the best restaurants: Strega Waterfront, Empire, Legal Harborside and many more. Extremely helpful staff from front desk, to housekeeping to the awesome bar tender: Tammy! Also, morning breakfast complimentary... hot food, lots of healthy choices. Business Center makes getting work done easy. With family accompanying me for the holiday, they were very happy with the other activities nearby and the "really cool" hotel (:). Special thanks to Mike Day and Lisa Crist and all of the front desk staff. Also, a special compliment for the morning breakfast staff who do a WONDERFUL job. Housemen, Security personnel and maintenance staff should all be acknowledged for such a comfortable setting. Housekeeping staff do an wonderful job... looks like the rooms had never even been occupied - they were so clean. We had several rooms.

I was very pleased with my stay. The staff was extremely helpful, the room very clean and nicely furnished, and the morning breakfast had a great selection. But if like me you prefer to cook your own food, it's great for that! The kitchen came with everything I needed (other than an oven, but I knew that in advance and planned around it). My only complaint was that being on the 2nd floor and a light sleeper, I heard the planes and loud trucks down below, but everything else made up for that. It's also extremely convenient if you are trying to get to the convention center. I should note I stayed with others who used the sofa bed and they also enjoyed their stay.

I stayed here for two days for a meeting in Cambridge. The hotel is convenient to the airport IF you know where you're going! It's only a couple miles as a crow flies, but if you miss a turn or - like I did: had my GPS set to "avoid tolls" the drive can be maddening. If at all possible take public transport - further you'll avoid the pretty hefty mandatory valet parking charge!. The hotel had some hors devours for "dinner" and I don't think there's any restaurants within walking distance (the weather was crazy anyway) so I ordered a pizza. I'd recommend this hotel if you have business or are visiting the area, but I'd avoid driving unless you're very familiar with the area!

Room Tip: The waterfront side has some good views if you're high-enough up.
