“Excellent location for a good value in Boston”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

Hotel 140 has an excellent location close to the main shopping street and trinity church. May be the best one in Boston. walking distance to most of the tips, including, restaurants.
The lobby is great and check-in was good. The room was small (standard) but nice and clean, bed is too small for 2 persons. I was at 8th floor, which means there was no noise. District is quiet at night. No breakfast in the hotel. You can choose to go outside for it or do it in room (it was so cold outside...) There is a fridge in room and free wifi. Room cleaning was strange as sometimes they refill shampoo, soap... sometimes not, sometimes half of them... depending of housekeeping. There is also a laundrymat.
The rate is not very cheap but for Boston it is one of the best!
I had a good stay there and I will go there again nest time I will come to Boston.

i like the entrance of the hotel and the lobby, is well located, the hotel doesn´t have room service or F&B services so this is not so good, there are several good restaurants nearby, but if it´s raining or snowing it could be a pain. the rooms are clean but small, they ask you for credit card or deposit in cash for incidentals, but they don´t offer F&B, Mini-bar is empty, so i don´t get the incidentals

Loved this place, clean, quiet, really nice room, super staff and excellent location to check out Berkley Music School. Walking distance to lots and very convenient subway station nearby. Great price on room too.

My husband and I stayed there for a few days just before Halloween 2013, starting a month long journey around Europe. The location and price were good, so we chose this hotel. I guess "boutique hotel" means quirky and historic, and that's what this hotel is. We liked the historic building the hotel is in, but the rooms are another matter. It was quiet the times we were in the room, so that's good. After reading how thin the walls are, we were lucky we didn't have noisy neighbors.

I asked (and paid) for a queen bed, but we got what has to be the smallest "queen" bed I've ever slept in. After spending a couple of nights in it (the first night we were too tired to troupe down to reception) I asked the receptionist about it, he abruptly stated "that it meets industry standards". I was naive and accepted that, but I should have complained on up to the manager but didn't and I regret that now.

When I got home I researched "industry standards", depending on which hospitality organization you google, and found out that there really aren't any. If I were to stay here again, I would call and ask the dimensions (or just width) of the bed, get the name of the person quoting the dimensions and then travel with a tape measure just to check it out. Or I will probably forgo the hassle and just stay elsewhere. We did enjoy the hotel's location though and it is close to a couple of nice fish restaurants. We didn't check out the other side of the building until we were leaving for the airport in the taxi, and that's where the Flour Restuarant is, too bad because it sounds really nice. We ate breakfast at the Pret Manger on Boysleston Street and that was quite good.

Room Tip: If bed size is important to you (my husband sleeps anywhere, I'm a light sleeper and being crowd...

When I arrived another guest standing out the front complained to me about the rooms so I didn't expect much (nor did I expect an amazing hotel given the incredibly low price for Boston). Rooms were clean, small and comfortable enough. My room bizarrely had an inclined floor which I guess is just a quirk of the building. For an overnight stay, it's close to everything including Back Bay station and was a short ride to the airport. Staff pleasant and helpful upon check-out, but fairly dismissive while checking in (staff debated over who wasn't too busy to serve me - I was the only person at the check-in desk).

Location is a strong point for this hotel. There is much within walking distance and it is very convenient to the T. Our room was small and no-frills, but it was quite clean. As some others have pointed out, the walls are extremely thin and we heard every sound from the neighboring room (unfortunately our neighbor coughed and watched television all night). The price was decent for the location, but we're not sure if we'd stay again.

I recommend it highly. The desk staff were fantastic -- friendly, helpful, knowledgeable. The location is great -- in the Back Bay but slightly off the beaten track, which makes for a nice, quiet night. Impeccably clean, nicely furnished, with a certain Boston je ne sais quoi to it.
