“Great location. Great value.”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

This is a clean, well run, no frills hotel. There are amenities like shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soaps, but nothing deluxe. The employees are helpful and friendly. You can't beat the location. We have stayed 3 times and recommend it to friends who all like it.

In addition to a wonderful location (steps away from a subway station and a block from Copley Square), the hotel was clean, the staff was friendly and the service was impeccable! I traveled with a group of 24 and every detail was handled perfectly! Many thanks to Steve for his help with our reservations and visit.

We picked this hotel based on price and location and it was good value for money. We were upgraded to a suite, which was not as glamorous as it sounds, it was large, but furnishing was not in any way luxurious or what you might expect from a suite (plastic chairs in the 'lounge' area). However, if you are looking for clean, functional and good value this hotel is great. The staff were also very helpful, holding our bags for us on after check out as our flight was in the evening, and calling a cab for us when we needed to get to the airport. Overall a good cheaper option in Boston.

Three of us stayed at Hotel 140 during the Boston Marathon. It was awesome. Very convenient to everything. Room was small (the bed was a double and we had a hard time fitting a rollaway), but so what. It was very clean! Staff was excellent. Only complaint is the thin walls. Bring ear plugs.

We are family of four and we had a great stay at the Hotel 140. The room was comfy and the hotel is just a few steps from the trolley and great dining and shopping in Boston. We will definitely go back to this hotel

We booked a room for 4 during the marathon memorial so it was very busy in Boston.The room was ok but it looked as if they had just put in an extra bed in a 2 person room, we had difficulties closing the bathroom door because the 2nd bed blocked it. The bathroom was huge (I think it was suited for people with disablities).
The location of the hotel was perfect, you can start touring Boston by foot from here! Car parking down the street (30% off)
We had breakfast across the street at flour bakery which was great.

The location is really good (Near the Back Bay railway/subway station), walking distance to Boylston street. The room a bit small but for short stay it is good for the rate we paid. Bathroom was large and clean though.

The receptionists are very friendly both before and after the visit, they were very helpful giving advice for our next itinerary.
