My partner and I decided to spend the night in Boston so we wouldn't have to drive home after our company's holiday party at a nearby hotel. We weren't overly impressed with the Colonnade, especially after seeing the hotel where our company party was held. The parking garage was awful. Very little signage directing you were to go and employees that didn't care. One told us we had to go to the third level, saw us turn around and start to go the wrong way and didn't even make an effort to let us know. Nice service or not.
Check in was slow. It was hard to get anyone's attention. We were on the eighth floor. The room was okay. Nothing too great. Worn places on the furniture. Impossible to find the light switch for the main light. The bathroom door slid closed but it was hard to keep it closed. I will say the bed was very comfortable. It had a huge selection of pillows. The bathroom was nice enough (aside from the door). I liked the rubber duckie and the soaps. Heat was good. Noise wasn't an issue. The television was nice and big.
We checked out early the next day and I was extremely disappointed that they did not validate parking. Thirty-four dollars to park overnight in their hotel-owned parking garage. Wow. I would hate to see the bill if I had spent an actual vacation there. I wouldn't use them again in the future.
