We chose this hotel to earn Wyndham points and the room rate was better than the other Wyndham property in the city. The location was adequate for us as we were in town for St. Pat's and this was close to the South Shore station and the parade route. There was a 7/11 and Dunkin' Donuts nearby too! The biggest complaint we had was the room temperature. It was freezing! The thermostat changed numbers, but didn't "work." I finally called the front desk and was told to simply turn off the fan. The hotel A/C was on and blowing into the rooms and we had no control over that, so it had to be cold or whatever temp was achieved in the "off" position, which was too warm, so we ended up getting up in the night a couple times and turning the unit on, then later off. The phone was also way too technical to figure out how to make a simple call to the front desk, so I had to make the call from my cell phone. The gal at the front desk seemed impatient with me and suggested she could send someone up to show me how to use the phone. I declined. We had stayed here with another couple and they stayed in the room across the hall and had the same problem with temperature and also couldn't figure out how to use the phone. I would stay here again if the price was right so I could earn my reward points, but I'd look around first.
