I stayed on a business trip recently. The price was a bit high but I think that was due to supply/demand as the other higher end chains were a couple of hundred dollars a night more. It's an older building but renovated and fits in reasonably with the downtown neighborhood. It's right next to the basketball/hockey stadium if that's why...

This hotel is in a great location and we walked everywhere. The staff was very friendly from check-in to check-out. The breakfast was a standard IHG breakfast. Lots of great places nearby to eat. The room was great.

We were in rm 314 for the purposes of family business. Rm 314 is defined as a King Suite which consists of a king bed along with a living room area and a pull out sofa that seemed new and my son thought was comfortable to sleep on along with a uncomfortable chair that seems oddly out of place (see...

This is a perfect location for anything in the North End or near the Garden. For me, I took the T into North Station and was a very short walk to the front door of the hotel. I stayed in this place before it was a Holiday Inn & was glad that it got a HI make over. That being...

This is a hotel in the North End. Walking easily to places you want to see. The room is large enough, king bed tv, desk, and dresser. Missing are wall safe, fridge, the bathtub is very slippery, needs mat or more surfacing, headboard has worn areas, coffee maker a plus. If you want tea it is available downstairs. The staff...

WOW! Great place for downtown Boston. Right across the street to the T Garden and the bay area. We stayed 1 night and hit 2 of the Boston Muesums and dinner at the Famous Oyster Bar YUM!!! The breakfast was very very good. The front desk people were fantastic. TIP: use lyft or uber to get around.

First, it is very close to Boston Garden...right across the street and the T (North Station) is two blocks away. Along with a very friendly staff, those are the positives. The hotel itself feels like you are drive down a dark alley to find it. Just has a grungy feel to it. The hotel is old and dated. They have...

Location is about all this hotel has going for it.....it's located directly across the TD Garden, host to Bruins games. There are a lot of good bars and restaurants within walking distance.....Rooms are small and no table and chairs........bathroom has no counter space........there is no sound proofing as I could hear a baby crying and a family walking about above...

This is the closest hotel to TD Garden (Bruins and Celtics games). Literally a 30 second walk. Also great for walking around Boston. The oldest buildings in North America are a 5 minute walk away, you can walk to the Red Sox in 50 mins, there is transit nearby, you can walk to the port, and overall the location is...

You've seen those ads. They claim that this is the place for the smart business travler? Don't be fooled. This is not a good place for a business traveler. My room did not have a work desk, which would seem to be the most elementary requirement for a business traveler. When I asked for another room with a desk, they...
