Stayed here for a night while visiting family. Was surprised at the amount of construction going on in this part of Boston. Quite a few restaurants within walking distance. Plus you're right by the water. Easy 30 minute walk to City Hall and the Boston Public Market. Room was very nice. Met my cousins for drinks at the bar which... More

This is an amazing hotel. We got in late around 9:30P and was extremely tired! Check in was a breeze! Our room was absolutely beautiful! Was lucky enough to be on the 12th floor with waterfront view. Room was super clean and spacious. Bathroom was clean too. The staff was super friendly. Location of the hotel is in the center... More

After starting off with a horrible billing incident, personnel worked tirelessly to make it right - a room with a great view, complimentary wifi, and midnight calls to a German bank (part of the billing drama) made the rough start a distant memory by the time we left 3 days later. Hotel location is in walking distance to many popular... More

Very nice convention hotel with easy transportation to/from the Logan airport. I found it to be a well maintained hotel, clean, with a courteous staff. I was in town for a meeting at this hotel and arrived relatively early (10 am). They were very good at getting me a room even though it was before the actual check in time.... More

Friendly and efficient from the moment we checked in. Everyone was helpful, the room clean and everything worked. The bar staff created a great atmosphere and we felt like regulars after just a few minutes. Breakfast was fine and the fitness centre was well maintained and spacious. Public transport on the door. Ideal for a trip to Boston. Only thing... More

In Boston for business, decided to try this hotel for the first time given its location. It wasn't the smoothest of trips. Cons: Maintenance: A number of items in the room were broken, from the phones to some loud mechanics that essentially ruined a nights sleep with lound banging of a mechanical fan or somethign like that. It seems odd... More

Dear veffekt, Thank you for taking the time to review your most recent stay. While I love to hear positive remarks, the comments that you made about your experience with my staff alarmed me.

We booked this hotel allowing us to be close to restaurants and tourist spots. Quick check in, room was very clean and good view of harbor. Quick visit as we boarded a cruise the next day. We would certainly stay here again.

Great location to conference centre and Seaport. Hotel facilities were OK, restaurant nice, but food (breakfast) wasn't the best. Rooms were clean and tidy but rather dated for a hotel of this stature...Very disappointing you also had to pay for wifi in the room, free downstairs in the lobby.

Very comfortable and nicely designed room. Service is top notch! Just a short walk to the convention center and close to some very nice restaurants. The inhouse restaurant has delicious food, and they even offer carryout. Highly recommend.
