We stayed for a week in October for my husband's business trip and I was tagged along. The Ames is located within walking distance of many attractions, but the large number of homeless people you see the minute you step out of the door definitely knocks a few stars off. We have stayed with them before, but did not see...

We're sorry you were unsatisfied with various aspects of your stay. We do strive to ensure our rooms are not only cleaned, but inspected so things like hairs in tubs don't happen. I hope you informed us of this so we were able to rectify it for you. Our doorman's lack of being at the door during your stay is...

Booked this hotel under the Morgans management, when there was still a restaurant and bar in the hotel: because I think it's handy to have drinks in the same building you stay. Unfortunately the new owners closed all F&B-options. Nevertheless, there are some good bars and restaurants nearby. Although; I think a bar & restaurant could bring more life and...

Thank you for your review. Due to our location it is sometime difficult to judge how much street noise would occur. On your next visit please remind us that you would like to be placed away from the street noise and we will do our best to accommodate your request. We hope to see you soon and Happy Holidays

Very hip boutique hotel in a historic building. We loved the bed, the shower, the location. Felt a little too cool for school in some ways, and was not cheap, but was a nice hotel in a perfect location for exploring downtown Boston's bars, restaurants, and historic sights.

I've stayed in hotels all over the world. This was one of my very favorites. I can't put my finger on exactly what made it perfect, but it contributed to a truly enjoyable and relaxing stay in Boston. I loved the modern decor mixed with the charm of the old building. The huge windows, deep tub, wood floors (I've never...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
