“Updated apartment, very comfortable”
Reviewed 11 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed in the penthouse, which was very comfortable with tall ceilings, beautiful views and a private balcony. There was more than enough room for 7 adults, and having 2-1/2 bathrooms was a nice bonus. The appliances, dishes, etc. in the apartment seemed new, and everything was very clean. The building is within walking distance of trolley and T, so it was a breeze to get around.

As another reviewer wrote, it is situated near a social services building, and there are buildings a few blocks away that are running outreach programs on Sunday mornings. No one bothered me and I never felt unsafe, but as with any city, walking around alone is probably not recommended.

The only cons we encountered were at check-out. The building management (concierge) and parking garage management are not part of the Stay Alfred company, so we hit a few hiccups when we were trying to leave (e.g. Stay Alfred instructed us to leave the key with the concierge, but the building concierge did not want to assume responsibility for the key, and our parking fob did not work). The check-out process delayed our departure by an hour.

Overall, I would definitely recommend staying at this location. I just hope Stay Alfred and the building management/ parking garage can get on the same page to make the check-out process run more smoothly.

“It was okay”
Reviewed 10 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Pros: The apartment itself was very comfortable. Nice accommodations and amenities, use of gym was a definite plus. We enjoyed using the full kitchen, cable, and the fridge was great for restaurant leftovers. It was in close enough proximity to all the major attractions.

The Cons: The area is definitely a bit shady at night. It is on the outskirts of the major part of town, right near the courthouse and a social services building. It's a bit dark and secluded. I am from New York and am familiar with the city, and I would not feel safe walking alone here at night. We did notice that on a night that there was a game at the TD Center, it was livelier and we appreciated that.

Overall, the apartment was nice and everything we needed, but because of the shady location, we would not stay again.
