This was our first trip to Boston and we were on our honeymoon. They upgraded us to a suite which was lovely.
I hate how American hotels only have lamps, not a master room light so it's a big hassle to light up the room. There was no safe for our passports/tickets etc. There's a kitchenette sort of space (fridge, microwave) but no utensils which is odd to me...
Other than that it was clean, comfortable bed, good hot shower. Reception staff were friendly.
It is right across from a tram/subway stop. A pretty quick, cheap trip into the city itself. We felt the area was really safe. Didn't see any homeless or drunk people when walking to the shops at night. It was also quite pretty if you're visiting Boston as a destination from overseas and want to see some town houses & autumn colour. There are shops and simple food options a 5 minute walk away.
I would NOT recommend the restaurant. Reasons: you're sitting in the lobby, it's weird and you feel exposed. The food is average and not good value. The waiter we had was gruff and difficult to understand.
