It is an unusual place - not really a hotel, as another reviewer wrote -- as it has all sorts of other things going on there - and it is not easy to find at all (few signs and downtown Lowell is confusing to navigate). The pluses were the very accommodating and helpful staff (changed my room for me, despite being full - and a fellow from the desk ran up to help the lady cleaning another room - there was only 1 other available with 2 beds - finish it up so I could switch rooms; let me use a computer, although not set up to do so; very helpful providing directions and printing them out), from the front desk (evening and morning shifts) to the breakfast help. The room was fine - but the big minus was the extremely noisy fire door that separates the rooms from the conference section on the 2nd floor. At first I had room 212, which is right by the door - and I went down immediately to get another room. I then got 216 - a bit further down, but with the gap under the door of the room, the door is very audible - as was the sports team that gathered around 6:30 to go to breakfast - and they really had a lot to say in the hall before getting to the breakfast area! So - try getting a room away from the door (or use towels to block the base of the door to your room) - and you would be fine! The continental breakfast was perfect for me - fresh fruit, granola, muffins and yogurt -but my son wished there was some cereal. The location is handy for walking in Lowell. But for the door - which sounds like a small thing - but banging noises when trying to sleep are important in evaluating a hotel! - I would rate it higher.
