With all the services of a big, expensive hotel, the Hotel 140 offers clean, well-designed rooms with everything but glitz and size. The rooms are small, more like a friend's spare bedroom than the acreage you pay so much for in the big fancy chain hotels. I liked it and will definitely return on more trips to Boston. Close to two MTA stops, right beside Boston Public Library and Copley Place shopping area, plus all the BackBay shops. Also, security was excellent, with key-card-only access to the upper floors, making for a safe, relaxed night's sleep for this single woman.
