THE GOOD: you could not find a better location in the Back Bay. It is about one block from the Prudential Building on a quiet street. Lots to see and do within walking distance. The exterior of the property is well maintained with a lovely courtyard.
THE NOT SO GOOD: we booked a 2 bedroom, 2 bath well in advance of the travel dates. when we received check-in information it was for a one bathroom. I have a strong feeling that they were overbooked and bumped us for a larger group. While we did negotiate a credit and the customer service rep was very professional it was a disappointment. Beware!
The unit while ok was not as described in the advertising. It wasn't "fabulous", nor was the kitchen "designer". It was a best average and improvement on both housekeeping (small stain on sheet, etc) and decor are needed. It was disappointing for something advertised as high end.
In summary: if location is your top requirement, this is the place to stay. If you are looking for location + high end accomodations you might want to keep looking.
Exactly as pictured
Elevator goes right to front door, but you have some stairs/ramps to get to the building through a picturesque courtyard.
Perfect location near sights, shopping, restaurants
Excellent value for the price. Plenty of space.
Lovely apartment complex with friendly people.
Shag carpeting in bedrooms is old, dirty and matted. Just bring socks and don't look down. The price is worth it, but this is such a deal killer for me.
Bathrooms are clean but a bit outdated. Toilet was tiny.
First apartment we went into smelled so horrible we had to move out and got moved to the wrong room size and finally 2 hours later got into a comparable room. The following night we were told we had to move out of that room as new tenant was arriving and so against our permission our personal items were packed for us. In the end we cancelled our plans and went and found another hotel. Will never use this company again
Check in was very disappointing as we were given a wrong Bldg no and we were stuck for over an hour tryin to figure out the correct apt. This was for 30 Garrison square apts, the security person at 32 Garrison finally helped us out. We are here for 3 nights starting today. Hopefully the next few days will be good. Also have not been given any parking for our car yet.
This condo is located in the bustling Back Bay area where there is so much to explore. There is shopping and restaurants all around. The condo itself is very comfortable and clean and located in a quiet secure building. We will definitely stay there again next time we are in Boston!
