We stayed here using a free night certificate (part of having the Priority Club credit card) over Labor Day weekend. It was a very busy hotel, but check in was very quick and even early (around 1 PM).
Our room was on the 6th floor overlooking the fire station, but we never noticed any noise (aside from the normal city noise). Room was very modern and clean. Really nice big bathroom with a full bathtub and a separate shower.
Bed was a little firm, but still a comfortable sleep. TV was a flat screen.
There was a fridge, but it was stocked as a mini bar....so there is no where to keep drinks. There is a gift shop downstairs though (overpriced as always) or a CVS a few blocks away.
The best thing is the location....right out the back of the hotel there is a nice walkway along the river. You are also only about 1-2 miles from Faneuil Hall and the North End. We took cabs and it was $8 to the North End and about $6 to Faneuil.
Also very close to the airport at about a 10 minute drive (on Labor Day though, so little traffic).
Valet parking was $45 (ouch!).
Overall this was a great hotel and we would stay again.
