Minutes from the airport, with a complementary shuttle. wonderful staff and comfortable room. Walking distance to the ferry and Little Italy! About two miles to convention center. Only drawback is proximity to commuter train, the noise could bother some.

This would be a great hotel provided they don't put you in a room next to the train tracks. Corporate needs to invest in triple pane windows for the train track rooms or offer some sort of a discount. Hotel itself and staff are excellent, train horn noise, not so much.

He told me that in the one direction I was two blocks away from Little Italy and some excellent Italian restaurants. Then, he showed me the...

Great place to stay, close to the water front and downtown. The staff are friendly and many choices for complementary breakfast. The room was clean and quiet and the bed was comfortable. I was in town for a conference and it was within walking distance from the hotel.

Nice staff and clean hotel. Some reviews complain about the noise from the train stop, but this didn't bother us at all. Good location in order to take the trolley to other sites I the city. Best part is the proximity to Little Italy and the waterfront. Nice complimentary breakfast.
