This is a gorgeous hotel. My stay was wonderful and could not have been better. That said, I think I overshot a little bit, i.e. could have stayed at a cheaper hotel. This place is much nicer than the usual hotels I stay in...the cheapest thing on the dinner/lunch room service menu was mac&cheese for $17 before tip/surcharge. But the rooms are roomy and gorgeous with all the amenities you could need and the staff is very courteous and helpful. The location is great, about 3 blocks from the silver line (bus to the airport) - take it, it is VERY easy and will save you $25 each way.

I reserved a double room on online travel website , but when I arrived the hotel could only offer me a twin. When I asked to be moved and upgraded the next day, the desk clerk was rather haughty and grudgingly moved me but an upgrade for my time and inconvenience was out of the question! This has happened to me in the past with online travel website. When I specify a king room in my booking, I expect to get one!. Also, the hotel apparently straddles a huge carbon dioxide vent from a Big Dig tunnel. The locals were all amazed a hotel was built there, and wonder if the air is safe.

We were immediately impressed by the outside appearance of the hotel, and the room and view did not disappoint. We were happy with either a riverside view, or city view. The desk clerk said a river view would cost an extra $50 per night, so we went with the city view. It was spectacular - and we could even still see the Charles River. The food was expensive; we only ate breakfast there. But the main good thing about the hotel is is proximity to South Station. There is a Silver Line ""T"" public transportation bus that leaves the airport and ends at South Station, and it's just a couple of blocks down to the hotel. The South Station was very much utilized by us during our stay, as we took it to come home from Salem, and to go to Cape Cod. If Boston is your hub for outlying areas, this is a good hotel for you. And the Freedom Trail was certainly within walking distance - and you will walk your feet off in Boston, believe me! As far as the room, there is a large flat-screen TV, as well as separate shower/tub facilities. It was decorated very nicely. The 24-hour gym had a good view out the bank of windows, and offered a large swimming pool, and the standard gym equipment. We did not partake of the spa facilities. The concierge was quite helpful. I would stay here again, should I ever return to Boston.

$15/day for wireless. $20/day for breakfast. If you want a coffee ""to go"" after breakfast, its another $2. My husband surprised me with a birthday present (he' s in Iraq), my daughter had to track it down and then upon checkout, I was charged $18 for the delivery. Being in the financial district, most businesses closed by 6 PM, and not much opened on the weekend. Beautiful hotel, but when I return to Boston, it will be to a different hotel.

An expensive hotel that boasts being on the waterfront but actually faces the worst part of the harbor. Expected much more for the money. The hotel is right across the street from the fire station and there were sirens all night long. If you can afford it, stay on the other side. Wear comfortable shoes as it is walking distance to the Marketplace, the trolley tour and the North End. The 24 hour restaurant does have excellent food, but Rudi's just down the street had just as good a breakfast for 1/3 the price. Would not stay here again, the bed is just okay and the pillows are horrible. Plus, the room is too businesslike.
