I stayed here for 2 nights on business, and was struck by the low lighting on arrival, but thankfully this doesn't extend to the corridors and rooms. My room was large, and beautifully decorated with cream and yellow soft furnishings and dark woods. The bathroom was on the small side, but the bath was deep and the water pressure was good. I had a wonderful view from the 8th floor of Boston Common, and slept well. It's disappointing in this day and age that you have to pay about $12 for wi-fi access, it really should be free.
The bar area is nice, although very dimly lit, and the cafe area for an a la carte breakfast is very 'regency'. Despite there being so many staff at breakfast, they all seemed to only have on task. There's a juice man, a water man, a tea/coffee man, an orders man, and a food man. I asked for juice on 3 occasions, but got the wrong man, and they couldn't seem to communicate things between them, meaning I went without juice. I think a better way to do this would be for each waiter to just be allocated their own area and do everything, isn't that what happens in restaurants? The stress was short-lived though, the excellent 'Charlie' was a joy to be served by and genuinely interested in each guest. He really stood out!
