This historic hotel (old YMCA building) is well located in the Back Bay area of Boston - the "T" (commuter train) is just half a block from the front door. Avis rental car is nearby. Copley Square is a block away where many of the tour companies have stops. There are a number of good restaurants in the area, (be sure to visit FLOUR Bakery right across the street). The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Even though our room was small, it was clean and comfortable and suited our needs (we were in town for a wedding). We would be comfortable staying here again for the central location and easy access to public transportation.
