Like many buildings in Boston, this hotel possesses some lovely architectural features. Sadly it is now gulfed by a hideous parking garage (our view). Once inside the actual rooms, however, you discover a decor and furnishings that have long given up. We are not overly particular, but expect nooks and crannies in the bathroom to be clean and the tub to not have bits flaking off. As mentioned-furniture chipped, damaged, over-sized etc, tiny TV and bedspreads in need of retirement. Pluses-Coffee and tea provided, as well as iron and hair dryer, continental breakfast respectable(and included for us) but not stellar and location (and free wi-fi!). Staff was not rude, but not the friendliest or engaged we've come across. I imagine most of their business is related to their conference facilities.
