Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) just checked out of our 1 bedroom suite this morning. I was torn between this hotel and one other in the Fenway area and I'm so glad I booked this hotel. Our suite was spotless as was the hotel overall. As a parent, I loved the on site laundry room with new washers and dryers and as a bonus; it's open 24 hours! Plus, there's more than 2 washers and dryers (I think they had atleast 6 of each). And the laundry was right by the pool so I could wash clothes while my kids swam in the indoor pool. For those who might need to do laundry at the hotel, bring your own quarters as the hotel ran out of them on three different occasions (very odd for a hotel with such a large laundry room). The rooftop deck was such a nice, relaxing area with great views of Boston. Shaws grocery store was a short 10 minute walk away although the hotel offers free grocery delivery service for those who can't or don't want to walk to the store. There's a Starbucks and panera within a short 5 minute walk.
Our sons slept on the pull out bed in the living room and they complained about the bed. After sitting on their bed for a few minutes, I could understand why they complained...the springs in the bed felt like they were going to pop out of the mattress but most pull out beds are like that. Breakfast in the mornings was crowded but everything was refilled in a timely manner; there was no shortage of food or drinks. I was surprised to see all of the children in the lobby because we didn't see or hear them on our floor (thankfully).
If you're going to Fenway, this hotel is a dream...we loved the short walk to and from the game. It was perfect. Some other guests complained about the security in the hotel as guests are required to use their cards to access the elevator and pretty much everything that isn't on the lobby floor (the pool, the fitness room, laundry, etc). But I loved the security; felt very safe. If you have older children who might go to the lobby or pool area by themselves, be sure to get them their own key so they don't get "stuck"!
