This high-end hotel is a perfect launch point for sightseeing. We walked to the aquarium (close), Boston Common (further), and found we did not need a car. We could reach the attractions we wanted to see on foot or via subway.
The rooms (especially the bathrooms) feel luxurious. I believe the double beds are a European size -- closer to a U.S. Full, much narrower than Queen. Keep this in mind when deciding the bed count you need. The mattresses and linens were quite comfortable.
The fitness facility is well-equipped and spacious, and you must walk through it to access the pool area. They try to keep a "spa" type feel in the exercise and pool rooms, so if you have a group with lots of kids, this is not the best place for a rowdy pool gathering.
I would recommend this hotel to a couple on a romantic weekend or a business traveler. It's not as welcoming for children.
The breakfast is quite expensive, so we walked a few blocks to Panera, Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks to satisfy morning appetites.
If you have a car, make arrangements to park it at an outlying train station and take public transportation to the hotel. Parking at the hotel is expensive.
