The room looked nice and the beds was fine. The people in the lobby couldnt help with anything if we asked about something. The breakfast there was always the same kinda boring. I would not go there with kids.More

Brydndis, thanks for staying with us. We are great for single travelers and couples. For families, as you noted, there are probably more "family friendly" hotels in Boston. Our rooms with two queen beds are very large and work for accommodations but we don't have...More

About
Description
Built in 1877 as the Sumner Hotel in the heart of the Theatre District by respected architect Harris M. Stephenson (1845 - 1909), Found Boston is one of the oldest continuously operated hotels in Boston's ...More downtown area. The hotel's enduring presence is due to a number of factors, but probably none as important as "location." An easy walk of just two or three blocks leads guests to such attractions as the historic Boston Common, the Public Garden, and numerous theaters, restaurants & clubs. For those wishing to venture out a bit further from the downtown area, The hotel is one block from the MBTA's Green Line - Boylston Street Station, gateway to outstanding cultural and historical attractions which make Boston one of the most popular destinations of domestic and foreign travelers. The hotel's reputation as Boston's "Best Value" is earned from affordable rates and exceptional amenities. So, whether on business or pleasure, the Milner Hotel offers you Boston's Best Location and Best Value. All rates include complimentary continental breakfast which includes juice, Lavazza coffee, assorted teas, yogurt, cereals, fresh whole fruit and freshly made waffles. Helpful tips: Tip #1: Please note that our address is 78 Charles Street SOUTH. There is also an address which is 78 Charles Street - that is NOT us. Tip #2: The hotel was previously known as the "Milner Hotel". If your taxi driver is not familiar with our new name, let them know that under prior ownership the hotel was called the "Milner Hotel" and they should quickly be able to find the hotel. Less
