We stayed here on an overnight trip while visiting Boston. We loved our room and the innkeeper was very helpful with giving us information on how to get around the city. The room was quiet and clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was good. The subway is easily accessible from the inn. We would definitely stay here again.
