We booked this room on a whim simply for the price. We had no idea what to expect of the hotel or the neighborhood. Being an old YMCA, it is not fancy and the room was very small, but it was sufficient for us in every way. The thing that could have been an issue is that the walls are extremely thin. We could hear out neighbors plainly. But luckily we had quiet neighbors. The Back Bay neighborhood that the hotel is in is fantastic. We spent a couple days just roaming the Back Bay and the the neighborhoods to the West of us. Really the location is fantastic. Judge it by it's nearby hotel neighbors - the Fairmont, the Mandarin Oriental, the Westin, and many more. It's right in the thick of all those fancy hotels. Depending on your physical fitness, you are within walking distance to everything. If you aren't a big walker, there is ample public transportation very near by. For a truly lovely walk, walk up Commonwealth Avenue to the Public Gardens. We would absolutely stay here again.
