As first-time visitors to Boston, we spent 3 nights at the Chandler Inn, and it offered everything we needed.
The location was central -- a quick walk to T stations, restaurants, sights, and shopping -- but out of the way enough to avoid lots of traffic and street noise. There is a bar at street level, but when we booked our room we requested a higher floor, and noise from the bar was never an issue.
The room wasn't huge, but it didn't need to be. We had reliable wifi and a TV, a comfortable bed, and the decor had a modern/European feel. The bathroom was tiny, but functional; the marble shower was lovely. Everything was clean.
The Chandler Inn doesn't have a gym or a pool, but we weren't there to work out or swim. I don't believe that they offer parking, but again, access to several lines on the T are within a 5-10 minute walk, which makes it great for travellers relying on public transit.
The front desk staff was helpful, and they were able to accomodate our request for an early check in.
Compared to other hotels in the area, the price of the Chandler Inn offered great value. We booked well in advance with a non-refundable internet rate, and saved $50-100/night vs. other comparable hotels.
I'd definitely stay there again.
