This is certainly not a luxury hotel, but it is clean and (considering the location) reasonably quiet. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Excellent value!
Located about 2 blocks from Copley square and one block from the Back Bay "T" station, Hotel 140 has a great location for tourists, and will work adequately for business travelers on a tight expense budget. Rooms are on the small size, but include nice furnishings and "extras" (like a refrigerator) that you might not expect for the price.
The hotel does not have a restaurant, and finding a decent breakfast nearby can be an issue. The "Flour" bakery across the street is OK for coffee and pastries, but if you want to get table service and basic breakfast fare it may be a several block walk.
Don't even consider bringing a car. Even dropping off people and/or luggage can be an issue as the hotel does not even have a loading zone out front. There is a very expensive garage about a block away. Get a multi-day "Charley Card" pass to use the "T" (and other public transit) and save time and money.
